Where did Simbang Gabi come from?

cbcpnews.com MANILA, Dec. 17, 2014 – To many, the start of Simbang Gabi often signals that “Christmas is around the corner”. Come Dec. 16, churches at dawn are packed to overflowing with the faithful — young ones and seniors, professionals and labourers, wide awake and drowsy.


Happy Birthday Pope Francis :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY POPE FRANCIS! We continue to pray for you and the Catholic Church. Excited to see you this Papal Visit - Philippines 2015!!!

[12/16/14]   What greater cause is there of the Lord’s coming than to show God’s love for us? -St. Augustine
Nine days to go before #Christmas. :)


"Am I not here, I, who am your Mother? Are you not under my shadow and protection? Am I not the source of your joy? Are you not in the hollow of my mantle, in the crossing of my arms? Do you need anything more? Let nothing else worry you, disturb you." -Our Lady to Juan Diego

Today is the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Ave Maria! (Ina ng Diyos, Ina ng Pilipino)

Today is a HOLY DAY OF OBLIGATION. Let us all make time to attend Mass today as celebrate the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, the Principal Patroness of the Philippines.

As baptized Catholics, we have the responsibility to observe these days which are similarly important as Sundays. Even though the days of obligation fall on weekdays, we must still find time to go the church for Mass.

See you in church today!
Tota pulchra es Maria, et macula originalis non est in te!

#OratioImperta #RubyPH Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Cebu: Oratio Imperata (Prayer for Deliverance from Calamities) Against Typhoon Ruby - Archbishop Jose S. Palma

[12/06/14]   ORATIO IMPERATA
Against Typhoon Ruby

Almighty and Merciful God, Creator of all!
Have mercy on your Filipino people
Who turn to you for help
As we face the ferocity of Typhoon Ruby.
Save us from this calamity.
Bind its anger and
Cast it into the depths of the sea.
Take care of us and families, and
Keep watch over our properties.
Make us humble and worthy to work together
For the common good.
Do not allow us to be defeated
Rather, endow us with your faith, hope, and love.
In the midst of these trials, make us see
The light at the end of the tunnel.
We ask these in the Name of Jesus, our Lord.

Virgen of Guadalupe. Pray for us!
St. Joseph. Pray for us!
St. Pedro Calungsod. Pray for us!
St. Genevieve – Patron Saint Against Disasters – Pray for us!
All you saints and angels of heaven. Pray for us and protect us always!

Batok sa Bagyong Ruby

Labing Makagaghom ug Maluluy-on nga Dios
Magmumugna sa tanan!
Kaloy-I ang Imong katawhang Pilipino
Nga midangop Kanimo tungod sa kabangis sa Bagyong Ruby!
Luwasa kami samaong katalagman
Rindahi ang kapungot niini ug
Ibalibag kini ngadto sa kahiladman sa kadagatan.
Ampingi ang among mga kinabuhi ug mga banay.
Panalipdi ang among mga katigayonan.
Hatagi kamig katakos ug pagpaubos nga magtinabangay
Alang sa kaayohan sa kadaghanan
Ayaw tugoti nga kami mangahugno
Hinunoa, buligi kami sa Imong pagtuo, paglaom, ug paghigugma.
Pahinumdomi kami nga tapos sa kangitngit adunay kahayag.
Kining tanan among gipangayo sa Ngalan ni Kristo Among Ginoo.

Birhen sa Guadalupe. Ig-ampo mo kami.
Senior San Jose. Ig-ampo mo kami.
San Pedro Calungsod. Ig-ampo mo kami.
San Genoviva-Patron Batok sa mga katalagman - Ig-ampo mo Kami.
Mga Santos ug Anghel sa Langit. Ig-ampo mo kami ug Panalipdi kami.
