RE: CONFERENCE ON SAINT POPE PAUL VI IN THANKSGIVING FOR HIS CANONIZATION


Dear Monsignor / Fathers / Lay Brothers and Sisters,

Greetings in the Lord! 

In the spirit of gratitude to the Lord for the gift of the canonization and the legacy of Saint Pope Paul VI, we are inviting you to a conference in his honor on December 5, 2018 (Wednesday), 5:45 in the afternoon at the National Shrine of Saint Michael and the Archangels. We request each parish to send 2-3 participants for the said conference. 

Saint Pope Paul VI was canonized by Pope Francis last October 14. He will be remembered for his zeal and courage in bringing about renewal in the many aspects of ecclesial life. 

Pope Francis said: "Paul VI spent his life for Christ's Gospel, crossing new boundaries and becoming its witness in proclamation and in dialogue, a prophet of a Church turned outwards, looking to those far away and taking care of the poor. Even in the midst of tiredness and misunderstanding, Paul VI bore witness in a passionate way to the beauty and the joy of following Christ totally. Today he still urges us, together with the Council whose wise helmsman he was, to live our common vocation: the universal call to holiness. Not to half measures, but to holiness." 

The conference program is as follows: 

5:45 pm : Vespers

6:00 pm : Saint Paul VI: The Pastor, Theologian, and the Saint, Fr. Genaro O. Diwa, SLL

6:40 pm : Saint Pope Paul VI and Sacrosanctum Concilium, Dean Josefina Manabat, EdD, SLD

7:15 pm : Saint Pope Paul VI and the Holy Mass of Vatican II, Msgr. Ricardo Serrano, SLD

8:00 pm : Concluding Prayer and Veneration of the Relic of Saint Paul VI


We request interested participants to pre-register by getting in touch with Ms. Jane Morales at 7356011 local 3110 or Ms. Susan Inoceno-Dizon at 4043891 for the preparation of materials. There will be no registration fee, although donations will be gratefully appreciated. Snacks will be served after the conference. 

Let us thank the Lord for the gift of Saint Paul VI and commit ourselves to the renewal of the Church. 

 

 

Sincerely yours,

(SIGNED)
REV. FR. GENARO O. DIWA
Minister
Archdiocesan Liturgical Commission, Manila
