February is known to many as the Pro-Life month and this year’s celebration started off with the Holy Mass celebrated at Quiapo Church last February 3, 2013. Present during the mass were personalities of the pro-life movement such as Lito David and Atty. Marwil Llasos, both running for seats in the senate; former senator Kit Tatad and his wife, Feny; Atty. Hector Villacorta, Chief of Staff of Senator Vicente Sotto III; and Eric Manalang, the spokesperson for the movement called “Catholic Philippines.”

Fr.  Enrique Lacostales of the Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene (Quiapo Church) celebrated the opening mass of Pro-Life Month and said that giving importance to life is among the greatest manifestations of genuine love for Christ and obedience to His words.

“This is what true love is about. The pro-life advocacy teaches us to value not only our lives, but that of humankind as a whole,” he said in Filipino during his homily. “Valuing life is the true essence of love that springs from the Divine.”

Pro Life Activities

The theme for this year’s Pro-Life Month is: “A Pro-Life Nation: The Future in Our Hands.” In the past, we have made the mistake of electing officials who embrace the culture of death. Part of the thrust in this year’s theme is to ignite the so-called “Catholic Vote” and be able to field as well as elect candidates whose platforms and ideals are based on the common good and on Catholic values.

In keeping with the theme, a series of events will be held to spread awareness on the pro-life advocacies pushed by the Church and various civic institutions.

Mr. Michael Voris, St.Michael's Media

 

 

This week, renowned apologist Michael Voris, S.T.B. will be coming over to the Philippines in a series of talks all over the country, from Davao, to Cebu, and finally here in Manila, from February 9-15, 2013. The traditional Mass for Healing will be held at Sto. Domingo Church at 5:30 pm on February 21.

PRO-LIFE MONTH 2013 ACTIVITIES 

 

 

Launching of Catholic Philippines

During the same mass, the representatives from the Catholic Philippines were introduced to the public. Catholic Philippines hopes to restore the cultural as well as the spiritual and distinctively Catholic heritage and it plans to do so by educating and catechizing the vast majority Catholics who are still not in the know on how to use this right to vote well.

 

 

The lack of a Catholic Vote has proved to be disastrous in the past. Our congressmen slugged it out and during the last congress but still lost out to 2/3 of the House who voted Yes to the RH law. Apparently, the passage of the RH is just the tip of the iceberg. Our congressmen spent no time in proposing another bill concerning divorce right after congress passed RH. Lately, they have been active in promoting the anti-discrimination bill as well, and with the amendments of Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago in place, there will certainly be provisions that could legalize same-sex marriage.

Even if we stop all these mad bills from passing in the next congress, danger looms in the horizon. Ang Ladlad, a group for the promotion of LGBT rights, will be joining the elections as a partylist. Imagine if they won, they would be crafting laws that would serve their advocacy, and the pro life movement in our country will have its hands full once again.

This is why it is essential for us to vote Catholic this May 2013. We should be campaigning for pro-life candidates as well as campaigning against those who have wantonly disregarded us Catholics in their quest to file anti-life laws. This Pro-Life month, we not only remember that we should be spreading the culture of life, we must also understand that the culture of life must reach the realm of politics if we are to succeed.

The “Catholic Vote” is essential if we really want a pro-life nation. The ball is in our court. The future is in our hands.
