The Societas Verbi Divini (SVD) – Philippines welcomes the three General Visitators who are now in the country to visit the different SVD areas in the Philippines:

 

 

SVD Philippine Central Province: Fr. Arlindo Pereira Dias, SVD
SVD Philippine Northern Province: Bro. Guy Mido Mazola, SVD
SVD Philippine Southern Province: Fr. Gregory Pinto, SVD

 

 

According to the SVD Constitutions, 626: “General visitations are an occasion for the visitator to come into personal contract with the individual confreres. It has the task of strengthening the confreres’ conviction that the Society cares for each and everyone of them. It also helps the Generalate more exact information of the life and work of our confreres and a realistic picture of the conditions and needs of the various areas of the Society. This should result in our confreres living in line with the Society’s norms and working towards our common goal.”

The children of Emiliana Tan and Agaton Fiel

The children of Emiliana Tan and Agaton Fiel

 

Emiliana Tan was born on October 11, 1888. She first dreamed of becoming a nun since her teenage years. Her father Pablo Tan, a wealthy haciendero, sent his daughters to Colegio de la Immaculada Concepcion in Cebu, an elite school conducted by the “Hijas de la Caridad” now known as Daughters of Charity. A certain Fr. Pedro Angulo, a Vincentian priest encouraged her to follow God’s call. With the priest’s help, she was all set to go to Spain to join the “Hijas de la Caridad.”

 

Her father pleaded, “come home (to Ormoc) and receive my blessing before you go.” She knew, however, that it was a ploy to keep her in the Philippines. The good priest, strangely counseled her to go back to Ormoc.

 

Ormoc back then was a small town. Only one small boat left for Cebu once a week. Pablo Tan was headstrong and determined to keep his eldest daughter out of the convent. So, Emiliana was always accompanied by one of her sisters whenever she left the house and her father placed lookouts in the boat to prevent her from escaping!

 

In the meantime, Pablo Tan was interested in a match for Emiliana. An intelligent young man of humble origins, the town bard who composed poems for the town’s celebration was a good match. They met and fell in love. But Agaton Fiel, Ormoc’s first lawyer failed the first bar exam because he was in love!

 

Eventually, on January 26, 1916 in Ormoc parish Church Agaton Fiel and Emiliana Tan exchanged “I dos.”

 

In the early 1920’s, the family experienced a great sorrow. A dysentery epidemic ravaged Ormoc. Antibiotics were not yet discovered. Among the child victims were Joselito (2) and Arturo (4) within hours from each other. Six months later, Araceli (6) succumbed to the deadly disease. Agaton and Emiliana were desolate. Father Angulo consoled the grief-stricken parents.

 

In 1935, they moved to Manila. Antonio Tan Fiel, who for some years earlier graduated valedictorian from San Beda College, received his diploma in Civil Engineering Cum Laude from the University of Santo Tomas in 1937.

 

December 7, 1941. The bombing of the Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. War erupted in the Philippines. Antonio Tan Fiel, also known as “Toňing” was a “guerillero”, an underground who resisted the Japanese invaders. He was caught in a “treacherous act” – listening over short wave radio to the forbidden news from the United States. He was imprisoned and tortured. He was never seen again.

 

On December 6, 1944, a week after Toňing was arrested, six grim-faced Japanese military police came to the house of Agaton and Emiliana. They finally decided to arrest Agaton, a prospect that spelled torture and death. Just before they were to take him away, the family knelt before the image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and prayed as they never prayed before. In those few moments of wrenching supplications, a miracle happened. A change of heart! The dreaded enemy said, “Mr. Fiel you stay, your family needs you.”

 

On May 13, 1946, Josefina Tan Fiel sailed for the Good Shepherd Novitiate in Los Angeles. She was later known as Sr. Anne of the Religious of the Good Shepherd. Seven days later, Milagros “Guitos” Tan Fiel joined the Holy Spirit Sisters in Mendiola. She was later known as Sr. Milagros of the Blue Sisters. Their mother was overwhelmed with consolation. The nun she wanted to be but did not become was fulfilled in her children. Still grieving over Toňing’s fate, she reverently said, “the fruits of the cross are sweet.”

 

In 1954, Celina also joined the Good Shepherd Sisters and was known as Sr. Teresita. With three daughters in the convent, Emiliana exclaimed, “Lord, my debt is paid – with interest!” (Sr. Ma. Teresita Tan Fiel, RGS)

The Society of the Divine Word (Latin: Societas Verbi Divini, abbreviated SVD), popularly called Divine Word Missionaries, and sometimes the Steyler Missionaries, is a missionary religious congregation in The Roman Catholic Church Roman.

 

In the Philippines, the Divine Word Missionaries arrived in Bangued, Abra, in 1909, founding schools in Bangued, Vigan, in Ilocos Sur and Laoag City in Ilocos Norte, as well as in other parts of the Philippines. Now there are about 500 Filipino SVD priests and brothers and around 150 of them are serving in overseas missions on all continents. In the Philippines, the SVD have three ecclesiastical provinces, namely: the Philippine North (PHN) that comprises missionary works of Pangasinan to Aparri; the Philippine Central (PHC) that covers the National Capital Region, and all the provinces comprising central Luzon, southern Tagalog and the whole Bicol region; and the Philippine South (PHS) whose ministries cover the Visayas and Mindanao Islands.

 

The congregation opened Christ the King Mission Seminary in 1934 in Quezon City for their Filipino applicants and from then on their numbers continued to increase eventually making the SVD the largest religious institute of men in the country.

Are you a single professional or a fourth year high school who feels the call to serve God in the religious missionary life?

Then, join the SVD!

We are a congregation of congregation of Priests and Brothers, founded in Steyl, Holland on September 8, 1875, by St. Arnold Janssen. SVD is one of the three religious congregations founded by St. Arnold, along with the Blue Sisters and the Pink Sisters.

The SVD Missionaries, as “witnesses” to the Divine Word (Jesus), are engaged among others, in the following works: biblical apostolate, education, parish administration, mass media/communication, mission animation, formation of youth, formation of future priests and religious missionaries, promotion of justice, peace and integrity of creation (JPIC), community organizing, empowerment of indigenous peoples/communities, care of street children, prostituted women and other marginalized sectors of the society.

At present, we are the 7th biggest male congregation in the Church and the biggest in the Philippines.

When I posted the photo above in my facebook account, Archbishop Socrates Villegas have very good words for Bishop Morelos:

He (Bishop Carmelo Morelos) was a zealous and prudent bishop. His sense of humor and his practical wisdom endeared him to so many bishops, priests, nuns and laity. Having been a former CBCP President, he led the bishops with his exceptional intelligence and unique insights. We have a new saint in heaven.”
