HFA-GS Teachers Attend Seminar-Retreat Sessions

St. Scholastica’s Center of Spirituality , Tagaytay City, August 3, 2015—To nourish the minds and spirits of its roster of teachers, Holy Family- Grade School Department (HFA-GS) provided a three-day retreat integrated with a seminar on Christian and Islamic faiths. Emeritus Abbot Timothy Wright, a renowned promoter of faith unification through the establishment of commonalities instead of differences, was the distinguished speaker and Holy Eucharist celebrant, teachers were made to listen to a topic centering on the four pillars of faith on their first day at St. Scholastica’s Center of Spirituality. After the said session, adoration was held. On the second day, a Holy Mass was celebrated followed by two segments of seminar sessions tackling the roles of Adam, Jesus, and Mary in the Holy Bible and the Holy Qur’an. The third day was held with lauds, Holy Mass, and a Lectio Divina in three traditions (i.e., Islam, Catholic, and Hebrew) as culminating activities. When asked about how he views the teachers of HFA-GS having had multiple seminar sessions with them, Emeritus Abbot Wright said that “[the HFA-GS Staff] are living testaments that Filipino people are not only academically excellent, but [they]also prove how deep the spirituality of a Filipino Christian is”.

S. Edna M. Quiambao, OSB Talks on the School Theme

One of the most important highlights during the 2015-2016 General Assembly last May 18, 2015 in the St. Scholastica Hall was the delivery of message regarding the school direction for the current school year by the HFA school directress, Sister Edna M. Quiambao, OSB. Through the aid of a
well prepared powerful presentation, S. Edna recalled how HFA observed the Era of New Evangelization and the Year of Faith which were both introduced during the school year 2012 - 2013 coupled with the theme “Rediscover, Live, Share” with the two Benedictine Values: Hospitality and Stewardship. She also mentioned the theme for the school direction in 2014 - 2015 which was “Go Familians, Proclaim the Joy of the Gospel!” She also did not forget to mention that it was the Year of the Laity which focused on values such as Prayer and Conversatio Morum. For this school year 2015 - 2016, the title given is “Year of the Poor” with focused values on “Simplicity of Lifestyle and Service”. To be able to explicitly explain this to the school community, she asked the audience
to read the lyrics that tell something about the poor people in the song of Justin Bieber, “I Pray”. It is about someone who can not afford to take a peaceful sleep because he constantly bothered by the many wrong doings of people which further impoverish the life situations of the poor all over the world. And there were also some parts of the lyrics that encourage people to do something so there may be changes for the better. The message of the song also talks about greater faith in God which ultimately means that there is always hope as long as God exists. In the latter part of the directress presentation, she allowed the audience to listen and watch a short message delivered by Archbishop Socrates Villegas who said, “The poor are the treasures of the Church.
The poor are the friends of Jesus”. “Before God, we are all poor. We may have money in our pocket. We may have food on our table but we are poor. We are all poor because everything comes from God.” In this regard, the directress challeged the attendees to reflect on the possible actions in helping the poor. She also enlightened them about the newest role of Familians in the Year of the Poor and it is reflected in the theme “Familians, Bearers of Hope and
Joy in the Year of the Poor”.

The Holy Father Shows Mercy and Compassion to Filipinos

The most awaited Papal Visit of Pope Francis in the Philippines from January 15 to 19, 2015 was a milestone in the history of the Catholic Church. The Filipinos were quite jubilant. Some who were not able to see the Pope in person or attend his mass were constantly glued to the television just to see what is happening. The theme for the Pope’s Visit was “Mercy and Compassion”. He arrived on January 15, at around 5:00 pm. Before he got off the airplane, he was seen peeking through the window a number of times, genuinely smiling. He was undeniably excited and happy to be here. When Pope Francis finally got off, the looks on the faces of the Filipinos who welcomed him were indescribably happy and joyous. Greetings were given by President Benigno Aquino III and some of the highest officials in the government and military service. They had a little chat afterwards. After the ceremony, he was welcomed by Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, the Archbishops and the Bishops. Pope Francis gave Cardinal Tagle a hug like they were long lost brothers. After that, he went straight to the Apostolic Nunciature using his pope mobile especially made for him waving and smiling to all Filipinos along the way who patiently and tirelessly waited for him to pass by. The so called “People’s Pope” went to different places particularly to the University of Sto. Tomas, a pontifical university and in Tacloban where he really intended to go to console and express his love for the typhoon Yolanda victims. On January 18, 2015, Pope Francis had his culminating mass at the Quirino Grandstand which gave the Philippines a record breaking event for its largest papal crowd in the history. The Filipinos were truly blessed to have the Pope’s presence in the country for five days making the Philippines a crime free zone in the world for at least within those days. As a stated expectation in the papal message, many anticipate that soon Filipinos will emerge as “Outstanding Christian Missionaries”. May our countrymen remember to make decision and act accordingly based on a sound mind and heart. The pope further councouraged the Filipinos to think well, feel well and do well.
