  • Tagle to faithful: “Jesus is risen and He is our Hope!”

    Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle called on the faithful to look at the Risen Christ as a sign of hope in fulfilling our mission as Catholics to spread the Good News to the World. “Once again, Easter is upon us. For Christians, the Risen Jesus provides the sure hope that justice, mercy and love are stronger than evil and death. Christians share this Good News to the whole world, even to non-Christians, especially those who are suffering and at the brink of despair,” he said in his Easter message. Tagle also reminded his flock that they should not only see Christ as a sign of hope during Easter but everyday especially now that the world is enveloped with sorrow and despair. “But the hope that the Resurrection brings does not take us away from our world and our time. On the contrary, hope opens our eyes to realities of daily life but from a changed perspective,” he said. Tagle also recounted the practice of bribery in the Gospel of St. Matthew when the accusers of Jesus paid the soldiers guarding his tomb not to tell the truth that Jesus has resurrected. “The Gospel of St. Matthew chapter 28 recounts that immediately after the Resurrection of Jesus, the soldiers guarding the tomb were given a large sum of money by Jesus’ accusers so that they could spread the news that the disciples of Jesus had stolen his body. The truth of the Resurrection of Jesus was betrayed and denied in exchange for money,” he said. According to Tagle, this kind of act continues to exist today and “leads to greed, corruption, manipulation and further despair.” He also said that “it inflicts death on others, especially on those who are already marginalized.” Also in his Easter message, Cardinal Tagle said that the tomb became an instrument for the people to proclaim the good News of the Resurrection and become “bearers of hope rather than servants of gloom and despair.” “The tomb became the space for divine illumination and for angels proclaiming the good news of the Resurrection. The tomb is not empty after all. It is now the space of God to spread light and life. It is the space where the women received a mission to tell the disciples that the victory over evil and death had been won by Jesus,” he said. “The Resurrection is about the “spaces” God offers to us to live our mission. Ordinary daily life offers many such “spaces” in our homes, alleys, barangays, schools, buses, jeepneys, markets, offices, cellphones, social media as well as in our minds, emotions, and consciences,” he added. Cardinal Tagle led the Easter vigil activities on Saturday at the Manila Cathedral at 8 pm.

    The Year of the BEC is the fifth of the nine-year journey in New Evangelization as the Catholic Church in the Philippines looks forward to 2021, the 500th year of Christianity in the country.

     

    With the theme “Building and Strengthening of Participatory Communities that Make Up the Parish as Communion of Communities, the focus for the celebration of the Year of BEC is to be a church of communion, participation and mission as described in the Pastoral Exhortation of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines on “On Era of New Evangelization.”

     

    In his message, Cardinal Tagle invites the faithful to take part not only in the launching of the Year of the Parish but also during the year-long celebration.

     

    “Inaanyayahan ko po kayo, hinihimok ko po kayo na makiisa sa paglulungsad ng Taon ng Parokya bilang bukluran ng munting sambayanan. At thindi lamang sa paglulungsad kundi sa lahat ng gampanin sa buong taon.”

     

    The activities prepared by the Ministry on BEC formation and promotion headed by Fr. Benjie Ledesma of Archdiocese of Manila during the launching include the Keynote Address of Fr. Amado L. Picardal, CSsR, Executive Secretary of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines Episcopal Committee on BEC at 11:20 a.m. and the Inspirational Talk of Bishop Broderick S. Pabillo, Auxiliary Bishop of Manila at 1:15 p.m.  A mission sending to be led by Fr. Jesus C. Prol, OP, Parish Priest of Santuario de Santo Cristo at 2:15 p.m. will conclude the whole day program.

     

    The program will be preceded by a motorcade at 7:30 a.m. from St. John the Baptist parish, Pinaglabanan, San Juan City to Aquinas School.

     

    The second Plenary Council of the Philippines (PCII) defines BEC as “small communities of Christians, usually of families who gather together around the Word of God and the Eucharist. These communities are united to their pastors but are ministered to regularly by lay leaders. The members know each other by name, and share not only the Word of God and the Eucharist but also their concerns both material and spiritual. They have a strong sense of belongingness and responsibility for one another.” (PCP II 138)

    As Communion of Communities, BEC members and leaders actively participate in fulfilling their threefold missions namely: Prophetic (evangelization, catechesis, gospel sharing, denunciation of social evil); Priestly (worship, liturgy); and Kingly (charity, social action),

    In an article written by Fr. Fr. Amado L. Picardal, CSsR, Exectuive Secretary CBCP-BEC, he said that “BECs carry out their mission within the parish, starting in their own neighborhood, in the barangay or village, in nearby communities. They go to the peripheries in the parish and reach out to those who are baptized but not evangelized, those who are nominal or seasonal Catholics and those who are alienated from the Church. They engage in dialogue with Christians from other denominations and those who belong to other religions.”

    For inquires please call Fr. Benjie Ledesma, at 09175020923 or Miss Mylene Gaytano Enriquez at 09175020923.
