Postscript to ‘Monsi’

By

I’m glad my favorite cardinal, Chito Tagle, spoke out for retired Quiapo Church rector Josefino “Monsi” Ramirez. Ramirez is mentioned in the Luy files as one of those who had benefited from Janet Napoles’ largesse.

Faith surge

By

It was an awe-inspiring sight I saw on TV last week. That was the near-literal sea of humanity filling up every interstice of Quiapo and neighboring parts, sending ripples this way and that as the procession of the Black Nazarene went underway and a multitude pressed on, the more intrepid or unruly clawing their way toward the carriage and clambering aboard.
