The Parish of Risen Christ

Many thanks to the faithful of the Risen Christ Parish in Smokey Mountain, Tondo who came para sa aking talk on Misericordia et Misera (Mercy and Misery), the latest apostolic letter of Pope Francis. Salamat din sa aking classmate na si Fr. Jhonatan Letada, the parish priest. The photo above was taken when I arrived before the 6 pm Holy Mass.

This is the first time for me to give a talk about the latest apostolic letter of Pope Francis within the Archdiocese of Manila. The deal started during the ordination last week when Fr. Jhonatan invited me to come to his parish so that we could celebrate our 8th sacerdotal anniversary together. However, I told him that I could not be available on December 6, our anniversary, because I would have a talk at the San Antonio de Padua Parish in Los Baňos on the same topic.

 

 

I then suggested to him that I give a talk about Misericordia et Misera. He immediately set the date: December 13. I said yes immediately with the condition that it must be free. #fortheSVD. And yes, the rest is history.

 

 

After the talk, we had dinner together. Then, he gave me a cellophane of chocolate as a token of appreciation. LIKE! I went back to Christ the King Seminary in the evening with a very wide smile. It was a very wonderful day.
