August 14, 2013  Posted by: mongladz The Morality of the Pork Barrel Many of you, our Catholic faithful, have come to us your pastors seeking our moral guidance on the issue of the pork barrel. It is the object of an ongoing investigation due to accusations of corruption being hurled against some of our public officials.

No, all women do not support the contraceptive mandate

BY HELEN ALVARE Tue Aug 13, 2013 10:46 EST Co authored with Meg T. McDonnell August 12, 2013 (MercatorNet) – On August 1, when the Department of Health and Human Services’ “contraception mandate” began, members of Women Speak For Themselves (WSFT)—a grassroots women’s religious freedom group—demonstrated in Lafayette Park across from the White House. Though HHS postponed implementation of the mandate for religious non-profits to January 1, 2014, the women of WSFT don’t want anyone to believe that the cause of religious freedom is forgotten. And they don’t want anyone buying the phony message the government is selling (in the words…

opinions

By Francisco S. Tatad In a column on the Reproductive Health Law (PDI,July 29), our esteemed constitutionalist-friend Fr. Joaquin G. Bernas, S. J. complains  about having had to listen for 10 long hours (on the Internet) to the less than “scintillating” oral arguments on the validity of the RH Law before the Supreme Court en banc. Many who sat through the July 9 and July 23 sessions felt the same. But the petitioners’ counsels could not have shortened the proceedings.  At the opening, I spoke for  eight minutes, without any interpellation; but Prof. Maria Concepcion Noche  of Alliance for the…

Fullness of Life: Remembering Fr. Vic

full

  Rev.Fr. Vicente Cajilig, O.P., passed away  at the age of 63. For many of us in Pro-Life Philippines, it is as if we were orphaned. Again. Twice in two years. September 2012, our charismatic and beloved foundress Sr. Mary Pilar  Verzosa, RGS died unexpectedly. We were all shocked by her passing, perhaps because we were unprepared. We were always confident that what ever happened, Sr. Pilar was always there with us, for us. Sr. Pilar has always been the heart and soul of Pro-Life Philippines. She started this advocacy close to 40 years ago, and in many ways she…
