“Each year, every city in the world that can should have a multiday festival. More people meeting each other, digging new types of music, new foods, new ideas. You want to stop having so many wars? This could be a step in the right direction.” – Henry Rollins

THE media coverage of the Dinagyang Festival has improved by leaps and bounds.

From the decrepit black and white digital prints and small-scale region-wide television, radio and newspaper coverage, to the global and even cosmological villages. Read more...

In 1969, Jorge Mario Bergoglio was an ordained priest in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In that same year, Bacolod Bishop Antonio Y. Fortich issued his Pastoral Letter calling for the change and redirection of the priority of the Negros Church towards alleviating the lives of the poor, particularly of those who lived and worked in sugar haciendas and in the work places in the towns and cities, defending human rights under the aegis of martial law and adopting programs to implement the Church’s call for social and economic justice.    Read more...

3RD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

Gospel reading: Mark 1,14-20

THE proclamation of the God’s Kingdom is at the very heart of Jesus’ mission. He was sent into the world by the Father to do so and he carried it out both in words and actions. Hence, the Lord did not only preach verbally about what the Kingdom of God was all about, oftentimes using parables to help his listeners understand his message (cf. Mt 13:24.31.33.44.45.47; Lk 13:18-22; Mk 4:26.30, etc.), but also performed miracles, healed the sick, casted out demons, and so forth. Read more...
