"Never forget the roots of your family"

A little serious of our mind:

 Try to imagine, that your grandchildren can´t speak with you in your language......

Learn your family the language of the roots, so your family - children can speak their language from childhood!

Learn your family the culture of the roots, so your family understand and respect the roots e.g. Mano Po!

The coat of arms for Pope Francis

is nearly identical to the one he used as archbishop, notable for its simplicity. Following in the steps of Benedict XVI, he replaced the triple crown with a triple mitre, symbolizing the Pope's three missions to teach, govern and judge. Behind the mitre are the crossed keys of St. Peter, one gold and one silver, united by a red string. Published on Mar 19, 2013

Pope Benedict XVI: A Living Church in the Philippines

The Pope has said that only by relying on God is it possible to humanize society and rediscover the true destiny of all mankind. Speaking to the bishops of the Philippines at the end of their Ad Limina visit, Benedict XVI praised the vitality of the Church in the Philippines, the commitment of small ecclesial communities and lay organizations who are at the forefront of transmitting the Christian message to all of society. The Pope then stressed the importance of evangelization and the formation of young Christian families based on the indissolubility of marriage. Finally, he hoped that many young people would respond to the call to the priesthood and consecrated life. Uploaded on Feb 18, 2011.

NO LONGER SLAVES, BUT BROTHERS AND SISTERS

Look also the article "Pope to shoppers: Don't buy products made by modern-day slaves"
by/Agence France-Presse Published Dec 11, 2014 HERE

His message, published by the Vatican on Wednesday, December 10, slams "the growing scourge of man's exploitation by man," an "abominable phenomenon" covering everything from forced prostitution to child soldiers and slave labour in factories.
"I think also of persons forced into prostitution, many of whom are minors, as well as male and female sex slaves... (of) women forced into marriage, those sold for arranged marriages and those bequeathed to relatives of deceased husbands," he says.
According to the 2014 Global Slavery index, published last month, nearly 36 million men, women and children are trapped in modern-day slavery, the definition of which ranges from forced marriages to people coerced into prostitution, fighting wars or manual labour like picking cotton.

Pope breaks taboo by marrying couples who lived 'in sin'

In another signal of the openness of his papacy, Francis asks to marry 40 people from different social backgrounds who would be a realistic sample of modern couples.

A single mother, people who have been married before and couples who have been living together "in sin" were married by Pope Francis in a taboo-challenging ceremony at the Vatican on Sunday, September 14 2014.

In another signal of the openness of his papacy, Francis asked to marry 40 people from different social backgrounds who would be a realistic sample of modern couples.

The Position of the Catholic Church in Political and Social Relations of the Philippines
by Cheryl Burkhardt

Since the arrival of Spanish colonists in the Philippines, the role of Catholicism has remained strong in various elements of Philippine culture. Despite the claim of the government that there exists separation between church and state, the Catholic Church still holds influence in political action that has significant consequences for much of the population. Starting with a history of colonization, this paper establishes several areas of Philippine culture and policy in which the Church remains influential still today.

The Church's Role in Peacebuilding in the Philippines

Catholic churches in Mindanao are working actively to transform conflict and build peace. Churches are promoting interreligious dialogue, implementing peace education programs, assisting conflict victims, declaring peace zones, and contributing to peace advocacy with the government and other civil society groups.

Sanctuario de Sto. Cristo (San Juan)

The Sanctuario de Sto. Cristo and its adjacent convent were built in 1602-1604 by the Dominican Fathers of the Holy Rosary Province on a site donated by Captain Julian de Cuenca. Before the Sto. Cristo was enthroned, St. John the Baptist was the titular of the church. Hence the name of San Juan given to the town built around the Sanctuario. Both the building were burned during the Chinese uprising of 1639. Reconstructed again in 1639, they were set on fire in July 1763 during the British occupation of Manila and were rebuilt anew in 1774.

The Miracle at Lipa Carmel - 1948 Marian Apparition

Our Lady of Mediatrix of All Graces (Tagalog: Aming Inang Tagapamagitan ng lahat ng Biyaya) is an alleged Marian apparition that took place in the Carmelite Monastery of Batangas, Philippines, to a religious postulant, Teresita Castillo. The apparition is known in the Philippines for the rose petals which showered within the vicinity of the monastery, some bearing religious Catholic imagery which believers hold to be miraculous.

Initially declared by a local bishop as non-supernatural in 1951, the case was reopened in 1991 and is pending investigation by the Holy See while the Metropolitan Archbishop Ramon Arguelles of Archdiocese of Lipa find "no objection in the veneration of Mary and its doctrine" under this title. Presently, the Marian veneration is tolerated and endorsed by the Archdiocese of Lipa and the Archdiocese of Manila.

On March 3, 2011, Pope Benedict XVI was presented a Mediatrix statue by Bishop Guillermo Afable during the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines Ad Limina visit, to which the pontiff was photographed and exclaimed ''La Madonna!" in a surprised happy gesture. On March 9, 2011, a life-sized Mediatrix statue brought by Filipino bishops was publicly displayed in the general Wednesday papal audience at Pope Paul VI Audience Hall.

The religious image described and sculpted according to the vision of Teresita Castillo is licensed and approved by the Archdiocese of Manila for public veneration in various Filipino religious communities. Philippine Ambassador to the Holy See, Madam Mercedes Arrastia Tuason is a known devotee of the Marian title and displays a large statue in her consulate office in Rome.

CREMATION STILL A BURNING ISSUE

The traditional burial practices have been honored and observed by generations after generations. There was simply no choice but to pick out a casket, buy a lawn lot wherein to bury the dead, and pay the necessary maintenance fees or whatever related expenses there may be in memorial parks. But when modern cremation services were introduced into the country, there came another practical option.
