ILOILO IS celebrating the 156th birth anniversary of Graciano Lopez Jaena today, December 18.

Graciano Lopez Jaena Foundation Inc. will lead the wreath-laying ceremony at the statue of the Ilonggo hero at Plaza Jaro in Iloilo City.

Lopez Jeana is the Ilonggo journalist who held the distinction as the first editor of La Solidaridad, the newspaper founded by national hero Jose Rizal while in exile in Spain. It was part of the Reform Movement that would lead to the 1898 Revolution and end more than 300 years of Spanish colonization.

The highlight of this year’s Graciano Lopez Jaena Day is the presentation of winners of the 2012 Dr. Graciano Lopez Jaena Poetry Contest.

Graciano Lopez Jaena Day is a public holiday in the city and province of Iloilo by virtue of Republic Act 6155 enacted on November 9, 1970.

THE most alarming development in national life at present is the proliferation of Marcos lies and the vulnerability of the millennial generation to believe in them. In the last decade, the Marcoses are quietly trying to distort and revise history through the extensive use of social media.

Loving with Christ’s love

By: Fr. Roy Cimagala

This, for sure, is no fantasy, or some exaggerated desire, completely gratuitous or with no basis. This, in fact, is what Christ has commanded us: "Love one another as I have loved you." (Jn 13,34)

And I don't think he would give us that commandment without enabling us to follow it.
