Tarlac’s Marian image receives pontifical coronation

2pontificalcoronation-materdolorosa-tarlaccathedral-capas

The venerated image of Mater Dolorosa de Capas has received a canonical coronation over the weekend. Archbishop Charles Brown, apostolic nuncio to the Philippines, crowned the image during Mass at the San Sebastian Cathedral in Tarlac City on June 5. In his homily, the nuncio asked the faithful to turn to Mary to pray for “our difficulties, the sorrows, the sadness of our human lives”. “Let us allow her to present them to Jesus, the Heavenly Father,” Brown said. “Let us remember that in our Catholic faith, sorrow will be turned into joy. That joy will have the last word.”…

Pope Francis declares blind 14th-century lay Dominican a saint

st-margareth-of-castelo

VATICAN— Pope Francis declared a blind 14th-century Italian lay Dominican a saint Saturday using a process known as “equipollent” canonization. The Holy See press office said April 24 that the pope had authorized the extension of the liturgical cult of Blessed Margaret of Castello to the universal Church during a Saturday morning meeting with Cardinal Marcello Semeraro, prefect of the Vatican Congregation for the Causes of Saints. She will now be inscribed among the saints via the procedure also called “equivalent” canonization, where the requirement for a miracle attributed to the candidate’s intercession is waived. Margaret of Castello was born blind and…

‘Courageous prophet’: Tributes pour in for Archbishop Cruz

ovc-1-1024x683

  Tributes poured in for a “courageous prophet” who braved threats and harassment in fighting the social ills in the country. Archbishop Oscar Cruz did not aim to overhaul society when he embarked a crusade against gambling in early 2000. His goal was to awaken the people to their exploitation by the gambling lords and their protectors in government. Those who knew him have nothing but praises after he died in a hospital due to complications from the coronavirus disease on Aug. 26. Archbishop Socrates Villegas of Lingayen-Dagupan said his predecessor was “a faithful shepherd” and “a patriot and pastor”….

Bishop urges public to unite against anti-terror bill

untitled

A Catholic bishop has called on the public to unite against the passage of a new anti-terrorism measure which he branded as “vague”. Bishop Gerardo Alminaza of San Carlos has warned that no one is exempted from its “dangerous” provisions even church people. “It is high time that citizens and members of civil society organizations set aside their differences to combat the passage of this bill,” Alminaza said. “Now more than ever, we need the power of dissenting voices in the current state of political and public health in our country,” he said. While the fight against terrorism is legitimate…

The new book, Pro-Life Kids, teaches young children the value of each human life and age-appropriately explains what abortion is.

Priest refutes senator: ‘Divorce will never be pro-family’

fr-jerome-secillano

A Catholic priest urged Senator Riza Hontiveros not to eschew misrepresentation on divorce after claiming that it is “pro-marriage, pro-family, and pro-children”. Fr. Jerome Secillano, Executive Secretary of the bishops’ public affairs committee, said that such claim contradicts the provisions of the 1987 Constitution. “Is she saying now that the Family Code and our Constitution are anti-family, anti-marriage, and anti-children since they do not guarantee divorce?” Secillano said. “Divorce can never be pro-marriage, pro-family, and pro-children,” he said. “Let’s not twist facts just to suit a particular agenda.” On the other hand, the priest stressed that legalizing divorce in the…
