You're still the man and forever will be...

40 days ago is not an ordinary day for me. 40 days ago, I was eating my lunch while watching my favorite noon time local show called Eat Bulaga. 40 days ago Vic Sotto made a very special announcement but that made the public mourn and shocked. 40 days ago news spreaded like wild fire and fast as a bullet train. How time flies, don't you agree?

Today is the 40th day since the untimely rest of our beloved Francis "Kiko" Magalona. I hope his family, friends and relatives have already accepted the faith that our dear friend Kiko had gone to. I was reading about 40 days after death and I found out that within that 40 days, a soul wanders into the natural and supernatural worlds. On the first day of death, a soul is judged if it will go to heaven, hell or purgatory. A soul do not haunt houses, or walk the earth as ghosts.

In another entry I have read, it said that in these 40 days the soul is tested for sins. Each day for 40 days, a soul goes through obstacles that are called toll-houses. For the course of two days the soul enjoys relative freedom and can visit places on earth which were dear to it, but on the third day it moves into other spheres. At this time (the third day), it passes through legions of evil spirits which obstruct its path and accuse it of various sins, to which they themselves had tempted it.

Then, having successfully passed through the toll-houses and bowed down before God, the soul for the course of 37 more days visits the heavenly habitations and the abysses of hell, not knowing yet where it will remain, and only on the fortieth day is its place appointed until the resurrection of the dead. Some souls find themselves (after the forty days) in a condition of foretasting eternal joy and blessedness, and others in fear of the eternal torments which will come in full after the Last Judgment. Until then changes are possible in the condition of souls, especially through offering for them the Bloodless Sacrifice (comme
moration at the Liturgy), and likewise by other prayers.

I just hope and pray that Kiko is finally in the heavenly kingdom enjoying himself for eternity. Kiko wherever you are you will not be forgotten. We will keep on including you in our prayers. May the Lord Bless you and finally rest in peace.
