    I support the Catholic Church’s vigilance in reminding all of us of the duties and rights of Filipino citizens to honest and efficient elections. I also would like to always remind people that we have to make sure we VOTE and NOT BET the candidates. We VOTE for people not because they are winning. But they will win if we bet on them. It’s horrible how many of us can still be swayed by the numbers game being waged by whatever trending there might be (parang jueteng!).
    Please, let’s listen to our conscience, “the aboriginal vicar of Christ,” as John Cardinal Newman put it. Let’s choose LIFE and then we will enjoy the TRUE FREEDOM OF CHOICE.

Love and support for Pope Francis
The Church is certainly a human and historical institution with all that entails, yet her nature is not essentially political but spiritual: the Church is the People of God, Holy People of God making its way to encounter Jesus Christ. Only from this perspective can a satisfactory account be given of the Church's life and activity.

  Christ is the Church's Pastor, but his presence in history passes through the freedom of human beings; from their midst one is chosen to serve as his Vicar, the successor of the Apostle Peter.

  Yet Christ remains the center, not the Sucessor of Peter: Christ, Christ is the centre.

A Million Roses for the World
A gift of love, faith and goodwill from the people of the Philippines. Pope Pius IX once said: “Give me an army praying a million rosaries a day and we will conquer the world.” We are not out to conquer the world…but to save it for God to whom it rightly belongs.
