The Parish of Risen Christ

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.

Together with Fr. Jhonatan Letada, SVD and some of the parishioners

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.

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.

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.”

Bishop Reynaldo Evangelista with the New SVD Missionary Priests

Bishop Reynaldo Evangelista with the New SVD Missionary Priests

 

Eight deacons of the Society of the Divine Word (SVD) were ordained to the priesthood last Saturday at the Holy Spirit Chapel of the Divine Word Seminary, Tagaytay City in a solemn celebration attended by 127 priests and 2 bishops. This year’s batch of new SVD missionaries are called Logos Class, inspired by the Prologue of the gospel of John: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” (John 1:1)

 

The new SVD missionary priests are composed of three nationalities: 5 Filipinos, 2 Indonesians and 1 from Madagascar, highlighting the international character of the said congregation. They are Fr. Lawrence Llona, SVD (to be assigned in South Sudan, Africa), Fr. Ryan Diňo, SVD (to be assigned in Argentina South), Fr. Diderick Andrinjatovo, SVD (to be assigned in Philippine South), Fr. Franciskus Subandi, SVD (to be assigned in Philippine Central), Fr. June Lee Sarenas, SVD (to be assigned in Ghana, Africa), Fr. Gregorius Robi Dosom, SVD (to be assigned in Philippine North), Fr. Roberto Solis, SVD (to be assigned in Japan), and Fr. Lindsey Francis Taeza, SVD (to be assigned in Togo, Africa).

 

Ordaining prelate was Most Rev. Reynaldo Evangelista, DD of the Diocese of Imus. In his homily, he centered on priesthood being configuration to Christ, witnessing Christ and proclaiming Christ. He also reminded them never to lose sight of prayers, quoting Pope John Paul II: “Prayer makes a priest and through prayer a priest becomes himself.” He also stressed the importance of a “priestly conscience.”

 

The new SVD missionary priests will still continue with their theological studies at the Divine Word Seminary. For the Christmas season, they will be serving the parishes where they were assigned as deacons. Some of them will also have their thanksgiving masses where they go to their respective parishes. The two Indonesians Fr. Franciskus and Fr. Gregorius Robi celebrated their first Mass together with the big bulk of Indonesians priests, brothers and sisters who are assigned in the Philippines.

With Brother Noe Dura

With Brother Noe Dura

 

My first time to see Bro. Noe Dura! He was a Protestant Pastor who converted to Catholicism. He was invited by the Divine Word Missionaries (SVD) of the Manila District to share about his conversion story. Bro. Noe, who was once a resident of Olutanga Island (my former mission area), highlighted the shepherding role of priesthood, the Eucharist and the Blessed Virgin. In my personal conversation with him, we initially plan out to have a radio program in Cebu over DYRF about “Convert’s Hour.” Hopefully, it shall be materialized.
 
 
Interestingly, he shared also that there are already 51 Protestant Pastors in our country today who embraced the Catholic faith – and counting. A good number of them from Mindanao asked him that they wanted to have Fr. Gerry Orbos, SVD talk to them in a retreat or a recollection. To his great surprise, Fr. Orbos was among us, listening to him. Such a blessed moment!
