Tsunami of faith

By

By far, the best piece of advice has come from Bishop Pedro Arigo, apostolic vicar of Puerto Princesa. His advice comes in the wake of Leyte’s preparations for Pope Francis’ visit next January. The Vatican has indicated that foremost in the Pope’s itinerary is a visit to the victims of Supertyphoon “Yolanda.” Tacloban is preparing to give him a welcome befitting his stature as the head of one of the oldest and biggest churches in the world, the Catholic Church. Indeed, befitting Leyte’s reputation as one of the most grandly hospitable people in the world, devastation notwithstanding, quite apart from being among the most faithful of the world’s faithful.

Thru Pope John’s intercession

In reference to the commentary titled “John XXIII’s impossible miracle” (Opinion, 4/28/14) by Eleanor Dionisio, I wish to add that good Pope John was likewise dear to my heart because he had been credited by my good friend, Dr. Carmen Enverga-Santos, for the miracle of her healing from a particularly deadly type of leukemia.

This will be the first time, in over 2,000 years, that two pontiffs will be canonized together.

Deepest darkness

By

Some days ago, an American professor at Harvard Divinity School caused quite a stir by claiming to have come into the possession of a fragment of an ancient scroll that seemed to indicate that Jesus Christ was married. There’s a part there, says Karen King, that says, “Jesus said to them, ‘my wife.’”

Inspiring displays of simplicity and humility

May I congratulate the Inquirer for the beautifully written article titled “Pope Francis, Tagle hailed as ‘rock stars’” (Front Page, 3/13/14) by Lito B. Zulueta. John Allen, a visiting Vatican journalist, called Pope Francis “the new celebrity par excellence,” and rightly so. The Pope, with his personal, simple and humble ways, has touched a chord in the hearts of Catholics around the world and sparked the beginnings of a new evangelization in the Church. In his desire to “bring the Church out of the sacristy and into the world,” the Pope himself has led the way.
