The Resurrection of Jesus

Apr 15, 2017 | [post_view] Views

“He is not here, he has been raised just as he said (Mt.28:7).” The resurrection is the fulfillment of the promise that Jesus will come again in glory. It emphasizes the idea that the Lord is faithful forever. This is telling us that he is at all times true to his promise and that he is the Lord of life. As the Lord of life he will live forever to journey with his people. And his Kingdom will have no end for he lives in eternity. Jesus is life and he lives forever. On th…

Reflection on the Passion and Death of Jesus Christ

Apr 14, 2017 | [post_view] Views

We can read in the Gospel of Luke that after the Last Supper, Jesus went to the Garden of Gethsemane at the Mount of Olives and prayed, "Father, if it is your will, take this cup from me; yet not my will but yours be done.” This was an intense moment between the Son and His Father. Jesus prayed so intensely to His Father because He knew the sacrifice that was set before Him. This sacrifice, starting from the agony in the garden, betrayal of His friends until His death on…

It is inspiring to see how superheroes help save people's lives, but actually we can be real heroes ourselves. When you give blood, you save not only one life but as many as three lives. This month, Santuario Eucaristico in collaboration with Northern Mindanao Medical Center volunteer doctors and nurses successfully conducted a Blood-Letting Activity last March 22, 2017 in our parish. When we donate blood, we give someone another smile, another hug, another chance to be …

CBCP Pastoral Statement on Death Penalty

Mar 21, 2017 | [post_view] Views

“God proved his love for us that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Rom 5:8) On this third Sunday of Lent, the Gospel of John tells us how the Samaritan woman—having found in Jesus the “living water” she had longed for—left her jar of water by the well (John 4:28). Like this woman, the stubborn Israelites in the first reading, who are dying of thirst in the desert, have been led to a rock (Exod 17:6). Perhaps we can think of this rock as Christ himself, s…

Mar 1, 2017 | [post_view] Views

"The Word is a gift. Other persons are a gift" Dear Brothers and Sisters, Lent is a new beginning, a path leading to the certain goal of Easter, Christ’s victory over death. This season urgently calls us to conversion. Christians are asked to return to God “with all their hearts” (Joel 2:12), to refuse to settle for mediocrity and to grow in friendship with the Lord. Jesus is the faithful friend who never abandons us. Even when we sin, he patiently awaits our return; by …

The annual Lenten season is a fitting time to climb the holy mountain of Easter. The Lenten season has a double character, namely to prepare both catechumens and faithful to celebrate the paschal mystery. Every year Lent starts on Ash Wednesday and this year it falls on Wednesday March 1. Lent finishes on Holy Saturday, the day before Easter Sunday and so this year the end of Lent falls on Saturday April 16. Ash Wednesday comes from the ancient Jewish tradition of penanc…
