1. Thanksgiving Mass Celebrated

Bishop Dinualdo presided during the thanksgiving mass for the successful, painless prostate operation last 28 December 2015, General Santos Doctors’ Hospital, General Santos City, celebrated on 4 January 2016.  Twenty-seven (27) priests concelebrated.  Some lay from the St. Anthony/Cathedral parish led in the singing.  Mass setting was Christ the Savior.

Bishop’s brief homily.

“Whatever we ask we shall receive at God’s hands.”  Why? Because “we believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ and we are to love one another.” (1 Jh. 3: 22 – 46).

Jesus proclaimed “Reform your lives!  The Kingdom of heaven is at hand.” And cured many (Mt. 4: 12-17; 23-25).

Reform means total change – turning away from sin and turning towards God, “Metanoia”, total renewal of mind and heart, expressed in corporal and spiritual works of mercy.

Dinner was served at the kiosk.
