There was a slight rain and suddenly the Pilgrim Center was filled with umbrellas.

 

This year’s theme for the celebration is “Sto. Niño: Inspiration of Renewed Disciples for the New Evangelization.” This is patterned after the pastoral thrust of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) on the Year of the Clergy and Consecrated Persons.

I did not concelebrate. I was at the Media Center for the live coverage of the Holy Mass.

No to Fake News

Bishop Martin Jumoad

A facebook page yesterday (October 10) at 12 noon posted that Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), through its president, Archbishop Socrates B. Villegas, condemns the “brutal killing” of the leaders of ISIS-linked Maute group.

ABSOLUTELY, there is no truth to that report. #FakeNews kaayo to bai. Ang mga kritical nga posts sa social media makaayo sa atoang demokrasya ug makapalapad sa atoang panglantaw pero makadalag dagkong kagubot kung ang pundasyon mga binutbot.

So, now this is the official word from Bishop Soc.
