11th of February, in observance of the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, we participated in a Healing Mass and Anointing of the sick,” celebrated by Msgr. Dennis Odiver at 6:30am and 12:15nn.
Jesus Christ himself had performed many miracles involving the sick and he also took this opportunity to forgive the sins of the ailing person. Our state of being in sin affects the well-being of the body and visiting a physical doctor is not enough to make us whole. We need God’s forgiveness in the sacrament of Reconciliation to make us complete again. Before Christ ascended into heaven he had delegated this power to his disciples. Paul, is one among them.
In celebration of the 50th Foundation Anniversary of the parish, and as responsibility to heed the church’s call to promote life, a motorcade was organized. 3:00pm was the start of registration of vehicles. Participants were seated in more than 50 vehicles committed by pastoral workers for the event. T-shirts bearing “Respect Life” were distributed with minimal love offering of PhP100. Inside the church, while people gather and wait for the motorcade to start prayed the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. Afterwards, Msgr. Dennis read the pastoral letter about opposition of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines’ against House Bill No. 1: “The Death penalty.”
