Filipinos at Prayer for Nation
September 20 until December 23, 2016

A nation at prayer is a nation at peace.

We are now a nation wounded and torn by socio-cultural and political issues, divided by opposing, bickering, quarreling and even hating factions. We must stop the hate. We must stop the lies.

We cannot remain this way. We must reverse the tide of hate and confusion and fill the air again with words of peace, truth and love. Let us the resist the culture of terror and fear with the balm of prayer and mercy.

We have forgotten to pray. We have neglected to pray. We have been too busy with ourselves building our towers of Babel.

Let us pray for the whole nation. Let us pray as a united nation.
Together with various lay groups in the Church in particular the Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines, Live Christ Share Christ Movement, Aid to the Church in Need, Couples for Christ FFL, Family Rosary Crusade, Mother Butler Mission Guilds, the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines launch the campaign called A MILLION ROSES FOR THE WORLD, Filipinos at Prayer for the Nation.

Starting September 20, 2016, the Day of Interreligious Prayer of Peace proclaimed by Pope Francis in Assisi, until December 23, 2016, we as a nation are requested to pray the five mysteries of the rosary daily. Every province in the Philippines will be prayed for everyday during the rosary campaign time frame.

The dates assigned for each province will posted daily in the Facebook page “A Million Roses for the World: Filipinos at Prayer for the Nation”. We wish every province to experience the joy of being prayed for by the rest of the country.

I encourage most specially our children in our Catholic schools to participate in this prayer campaign assisted by their school teachers and administrators. The prayers of children are music to God’s ears.

I encourage parents to recover the Filipino pious tradition of family rosary at home specially at this time. The healing of the nation begins at home. As we restore family prayer, let us bring back the joy of the family meal.

I encourage the convents of religious men and women, our parishes and barangay communities to include the various provinces of the nation when they pray the rosary from September 20 to December 23.

Let us not allow the darkness to swallow us. Let us pierce the darkness of hate, lies and division with the light of truth and love. God is Truth. God is love. God is peace.

If my people, upon whom my name has been pronounced, humble themselves and pray, and seek my face and turn from their evil ways, I will hear them from heaven and pardon their sins and heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14).

Onward Christian soldiers! Let us be warriors of prayer using the beads of the rosary as our only weapon! Padre Pio said “The rosary is the weapon for these times!”

National Officers Visit Bataan - July 19, 2013

Patsy Henson, Mely Diaz and Charito Ampil visited the Bataan Chapter on July 19, 2013.

National Officers Visit Virac, Catanduanes - May 22 - May 23, 2013

National President Lilia M. Pineda and Vice President for Luzon Mely Diaz, ventured across the Philippine Sea on the Roro from the Port of Tabaco Albay to the Port of San Andres, Catanduanes during their visit to Bicol in May.  The trip covered four of the Bicol provinces - Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Albay and Catanduanes.  It included driving around the vicinity of Mayon Volcano.  There was great anticipation to see the famed perfect cone;  unfortunately the cloud cover was heavy during the entire visit.  The Roro was quite an adventure, taking almost 3 hours to traverse 26 nautical miles, but the blue seas were calm and the beauty of the island of Catanduanes was enough to make the visitors forget their seasickness.  A half hour drive from the Port of San Andres to Virac passed through scenic mountains and heavy green forests. Lilia and Mely agreed they were blessed to be visiting such a beautiful island.

The meeting with the Virac Chapter took place in Sea Breeze, the restaurant owned by our Chapter President Trinidad Laynes. Chapter membership stands at 37, and most of them were able to attend.  Special guest for the evening was  the Bishop of Catanduanes, the Most Rev Manolo de los Santos, who has been the Shepherd of the Diocese since 1994.  The Diocese has 5 Vicariates, 19 Parishes and 4 Mission Churches.

In her Welcome Remarks, Trinidad apologized for being an over-staying President, a statement that drew much laughter from the  group.  All present, however, agreed that she continues to do a great job.  Their activities and their output are faithfully recorded and the Bishop was there to witness to MBMG's invaluable contribution to the Diocese.  It was a happy gathering with members joining in a serenade and ending with all singing the MBMG hymn.

On the 23rd of May, the Diocese came together for the ordination of 7 priests.  It was a memorable visit indeed.
