Commemorating EDSA ‘86

Last Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017 the St. Andrew the Apostle community gathered in the church to pray the rosary for peace. Msgr. Dennis brought out the monstrance to expose the Host of the Blessed Sacrament. This was our way of expressing our solidarity with our countrymen who gathered in the 31st annual celebration of the “people power revolution.”

We meditated on the events in the lives Joseph and Mary that led to the birth of Jesus which is followed by His presentation in the Temple according to the Law of Moses, and the last mystery of the finding of Jesus in the Temple.

Not even Solomon looked as gorgeous, with all his fine jewels, myrrh, silk and gold. All we need is to strengthen our Faith in God, and He will take care of the rest because He knows what we need and we will get our share.
