Remembering Sr. Pilar

Last Monday, September 9, 2013, we remembered  the 1st year anniversary of the death of our founder, Sr. Pilar Verzosa, RGS. Pro-life Philippines opted for a very simple commemoration of  her death, starting with the 6 PM mass at Quiapo Church.

In his homily, Monsignor Clemente Ignacio urged not just the pro-lifers but everyone to keep fighting the Culture of Death and the corruption that has plagued our society for so long now. He also stressed the need to keep on doing the unfinished work that Sr. Pilar has left us to do: to reach out to the poor, the weak, the women in crisis, and protect the dignity of all human life in all stages. Among those present last night were the Religious of the Good Shepherd sisters, family  and friends of Sr. Pilar and Pro-life Philippines. After the mass, refreshments and snacks were served, and even though it was evident that we sorely missed our beloved founder, each one of us were convinced that her work and her efforts were never to be forgotten and forsaken.

 

Sr. Pilar was loved by many because she sincerely loved life. People did not hesitate in helping her because she bannered the Pro-life advocacy everywhere she went, and did so with the energy of a hundred men. She loved life, and exuded life. She was there to seek women and young girls who were battered and abused; she comforted them, she fed them, gave them shelter and protection. She also taught unceasingly, and took every opportunity to teach, to instruct, and to educate. It was in this condition that the Lord called her from this life; she was giving a talk when death came knocking on her door, a most fitting end to a nun who dedicated her life to making an impact on others’ lives.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A year after Sr. Pilar’s death and we still feel the loss of such a great person. So much has happened since her passing: the RH bill has been passed into law, we have successfully asked the Supreme Court to look into its constitutionality, and we have organized several talks and mobilizations without her. We still miss her dearly, as no one can ever take her place in our hearts. We are still faithful to her last words: TAKE OVER. Indeed, we are taking over, and though we struggle to continue her work the best way we can.

Christ not only said “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends,” but died on the cross to prove the eternal truth of his words. Sr. Pilar exemplified laying down one’s life for her friends by committing her life to the pro-life cause. May God bless the Pro-life advocacy and may we pro-lifers continue to be inspired by Sr. Pilar’s example of selflessness and love for life.

“What  Can One Person Do?

Every Single person, in his own little way, can do alot to save a life”

    Shalom dear friends,

    I never met dear Sister Pilar … she sent me on request, very graciously, pro-life flyers and tapes in Tagalog.
    The relationship was very blessed, in a spiritual way. My guess is that she was a woman of prayer and intercession, filled with the Lord`s divine Grace in her relations to others, in any case to me !

    And I am so glad you remember her to-day … may her memory be very blessed and her path of gentleness and faith followed by many of us,

    Rose-Marie

    Sr Pilar, she was very personal in her dealings with people she wants to help and those who can help. You can very well feel her sincerity in helping troubled women…. each one… not the generic type of help for all. She, now with Our Lord, can see the victory of the fight she started…
