Devotees of Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima celebrated the feast of Our Lady on 13 May 2015.
Theme: “Birhen Maria: Sumbanan sa Pagpatunhay sa Kaangayan, Gugma’g Kaayo Alang sa Pagpagahum sa Kabus.”
Presider and homilist was Bishop Dinualdo. Ten Priests: Claretian, Dominican and diocesan concelebrated.
Bishop’s homily: The New Heaven and the New Earth will come when God reigns completely. No more wars, sickness, corruption, death. It will be a state of perfect and everlasting happiness in union with God. (Rev. 21: 1-5).
Jesus gave Mary to us through St. John as mother. (Jh. 19: 25-27)
Our Lady’s message at Fatima: prayer, conversion and penance to bring about world peace.
Bishop exhorted the faithful to change from being unconcern to being concern for others. Pray for P-Noy and legislators so that they would come up with a Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) which is fair to everyone.
He also urged everybody to continue protecting God’s creations by opposing any destruction of nature and people, like open-pit mining in watershed and coal-fired powerplant near center of population.
Congratulations to Fr. Sinon, Fr. Freddie and parishioners.
