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. I wrote an article about it in the July 28, 2013 issue of the Inquirer (Lifestyle, “Blessed John XXIII canonization: Why didn’t the Vatican consider this miracle?”).

Historical ‘firsts’

By

On Sunday, Pope Francis will enroll Popes John XXIII and John Paul II in the roster of saints—alongside Pedro Calungsod and Lorenzo Ruiz of the Philippines, who took more than three centuries to get into the list. This will be the first time, in over 2,000 years, that two pontiffs will be canonized together.

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.

The Pope’s older son

By

I liked the way it was phrased: Pope Francis has “an older son problem.” That seemed to me to be exactly right: The context was both biblical and within the framework of a famous parable of mercy. Hearing eminent Vaticanista John Allen Jr. say it out loud was satisfying indeed. The definition of the problem itself hinted at the solution. But I am getting ahead of myself.
