Jun 8, 2018 | [post_view] Views


The parishioners of Santuario Eucaristico celebrated the Feast of the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus in a manner of Concelebrated Mass and Lay Collaborators’ Night last June 8, 2018.

This year’s Fiesta Theme is inspired by the 2018 Year of the Clergy and Consecrated Persons’ theme: “Renewed Servant-Leaders for the New Evangelization.” We had our preparatory Triduum Masses last June 5-7, 2018 graced by generous sponsors from different ministries and parishioners of the parish. Our community in RER Phase 2 Kauswagan also had their advance celebration of the Feast of the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus last June 7, 2018 at RER Phase 2 Clubhouse presided by Fr. Froilan R. A. Briones, SSS.

On the feast day, our parish had its Concelebrated Fiesta Mass at 6:00pm presided by His Excellency, Most Rev. Antonio J. Ledesma, SJ, DD together with the newly ordained Bishop of Tandag, Most Rev. Raul B. Dael, DD, Fr. Benjamin Mkeri, CCSP and our very own priests, Fr. Froilan R. A. Briones, SSS, Fr. Muriel A. Uy, SSS and Fr. Clifford B. Barrios, SSS and Rev. Kim Cabingas. During Bishop Raul’s homily, he shared that Jesus’ love is sustained and a beautiful Tagalog song of Rey Valera captures the nature of His love: “At kung hindi man dumating sa ‘kin ang panahon na ako ay mahalin mo rin, asahan mong ‘di ako magdaramdam kahit ako ay nasasaktan. Huwag mo lang ipagkait na ikaw ay aking mahalin.” That even in times where we find it difficult to love Him, let us still allow God to love us. As we celebrate the Feast of the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jeus, may we realize that the love of Sacred Heart will provide us the capacity and teach us to love continually even if love is not reciprocated. May we all be inspired to share and love unconditionally.

After the Mass followed our 2nd Lay Collaborators’ Night and Thanksgiving Party of more than 150 ministers and volunteers at the Formation Center of the parish in gratitude to their love, service and commitment to Santuario Eucaristico.

A Happy Fiesta to all! We thank God for the gift of priceless volunteers here at Santuario Eucaristico. Our prayers are always with you!

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!
