    • Abstract:
      'Siya Nga!'is a Filipino expression of wonder and, thus, of openness to possibilities. It is an expression of epiphany and eureka! This book offers the readers short reflections by Jose Ramon T. Villarin, SJ on fifty-two'familiar'terms in the Christian faith — terms that the author and editor deem significant in the life and living of those who share the Christian faith, either by religious affiliation or by spiritual aspiration. The reflections are elucidated by images of eighty artworks by fifty-four Filipino artists. The reflections seek to make these terms of faith —Incarnation, Trinity, Word, Freedom, even Christmas, for example — once again unfamiliar. In that way, and in Fr. Villarin's own words,'the newness of God will never grow old, and the bigness of his love... will never grow small.'Reflection, etymologically speaking, means'bending back.'The bending back of perspectives allows readers to dwell once more on Christian wonder, openness, possibility, and epiphany.
