Shrine of Padre Pio

Good Friday of last year I saw a documentary about the life of and miracles attributed to Padre Pio. Since then I had been a devoted of this Capuchin Priest from San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy.

We visited his Shrine in Libis, Quezon City. You can feel the sacredness of the place once you entered. It is so serene and peaceful there.

How We Met Father Jojo Zerrudo

Photo courtesy of: Ms Dwen Lumaque

Last Saturday we attended the seminar of Father Jojo Zerrudo at Totus Book Store in Greenhills. The seminar was entitled' An Exorcist Tells His Story.' Father Jojo Zerrudo was a priest of the Diocese of Cubao and an Exorcist Priest.

The above photo shows me and my husband with Father Jojo and Atty Marwill Llasos. We are lucky to have met Father Jojo in person, before the seminar we  have only heard of him from tv documentaries and blogs. Last Saturday we finally met in flesh.

Late Post: Pictures Last Epiphany

Last Feast of the Epiphany we went to Mass and we saw some church workers dressed like the Three Wisemen, so I took the opportunity to take some photos ...well with  at least two of them (the third 'wiseman' disappeared).

Here it goes:

Goodbye Father James Reuter

Goodbye Fr. James Reuter, may you rest in peace. Your love for the Philippines and Filipinos was legendary.

Father Reuter is an institution in the Philippines. As he received this award I watched with admiration and I wondered: what makes him so great? Is it the heroism he showed when as a seminarian who had just arrived from the US at the beginning of World War II he faced 5 years in a Japanese concentration camp and near death? Is it the 70 years of his life he has dedicated to serving the Philippine people : the priest, the educator, the pioneer in media, the street missionary? Well, yes, but still so much more. Yet the more is so simple. As he sat in his wheel chair at 93 years old he was luminous: with the love of Christ, the love of Mama Mary, the love of people. Yet he was so transparent, so human and so practical. He is just himself. He didn’t say it, but I saw a glimpse: “Not I who live but Christ who lives in me”
