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.
Familians Share Books to Pupils of Talimundok Elementary School
The Share a Book event is an activity in which Familians get a chance to share their blessings with others by donating old books to encourage others to read. Luckily, the Familians have been chosen to donate in Talimundok Elementary School at DAU last November 25, 2014 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 nn. The said event was indeed a day overwhelmed with fun. Familians are active when it comes to giving donations and other outbound experiences. On this day, Holy Family Academy donated their old books. This was participated by some chosen pupils and school staff. The pupils felt very happy and surprised upon receiving the books. They were told by their teacher that they can choose books of their choice. We felt an overwhelming joy upon seeing the happy and unforgettable smiles on their faces. There were also story telling activities for pupils in the lower levels. The first part of the story telling was done by Miss Joy Bangayan, for the grade I-Rose where all 23 pupils in the class participated. Another story telling was done by the J.A. president and her vice-president.
The second part was done by Mrs. Calara who read a story for grade II- Pearl with 40 pupils.The children were very active especially during the comprehension check where set of questions were answered and they got more excited when they heard that prizes will be given. The prizes and books that they received brought an immeasurable happiness evidently seen from their smiles and on us also. The pupils and teachers of Talimundok Elementary School felt happy with what we have given to them. Once again, our Share a Book was truly a success. Thanks to the Familians who donated their old books.
