Blessed Sunday to all: 2014 is the year of the Laity - that's us, the parishioners comprising half of the Church. The other half is the Clergy. Here in the Philippines, the Laity is much blessed, for since the Church existed we already had elevated two simple Catechists to the pedestal of Sainthood, namely - St. Lorenzo Ruiz of Binondo and St. Pedro Calungsod of Iloilo, Southern Leyte, Cebu or of Bohol (All four provinces claimed the Saint as their own of which Iloilo has the strongest validity based on baptismal records kept by Spanish authorities. By the way, I had classmates during high school surnamed Calungsod: Samuel, Ruben and Alicia, to name a few in Molo, Iloilo City). People heard Jesus said, "The Kingdom of God is at hand!" but tend not to listen. Instead, let the message besmirched by the evils of "ism" in current times - materialism, egoism, cynicism, individualism, etc. We, the Laity are called to transform the world into a Kingdom of God, but first we must liberate ourselves from the mire o ...

Today is the celebration of Sinulog Festival 19th of January. The Sinulog is an annual festival held on the third Sunday of January in Cebu City, Maasin City, Southern Leyte, and Balingasag, Misamis Oriental in the Philippines. The festival commemorates the Filipino people's pagan origin, and their acceptance of Roman Catholicism. The main feature is a street parade with participants in bright coloured costumes dancing to the rhythm of drums, trumpets and native gongs. Smaller versions of the festival are held in various parts of the province, also to celebrate and honor the SANTO NIÑO (Viva Pit Señor). Recently, the festival has been promoted as a tourist attraction, with a contest featuring contingents from various parts of the country. (y) Please Like & Share our Awesome page.

Report: 54 hurt in bus mishap in Southern Leyte
54 hurt as bus crashes into tree ABS-CBNnews.com Posted at 12/22/2013 3:08 PM | Updated as of 12/22/2013 3:08 PM MANILA—At least 54 persons were wounded in a bus accident in Pintuyan, Southern Leyte on Saturday afternoon. While there were no fatalities reported, nine passengers of a Clemente bus with plate number HVN-370 sustained major injuries and were immediately brought to different hospitals in Soutthern Leyte and Surigao. Initial investigation of the Philippine National Police (PNP) in Pintuyan showed that the bus had trouble with its brake system, causing the driver to crash the vehicle into a tree in a saddle point in Barangay Son-ok at around 2:30 p.m. The driver of the bus, Christian Abarca, immediately surrendered to the authorities. The police said Abarca may face charges of reckless imprudence resulting in multiple injuries. -- report from Sharon Evite, ABS-CBN News Tacloban
For the Leytenios' my warm greetings to all of you: "Ang kamurayao maada ha iyo!" (Peace be with you!") I salute to all the people in some parishes of Southern Leyte that I had shared experiences of the love of God along with my fellow brothers in the Neo-community from three dioceses such as Mati, Digos, Guihing and Davao City. It was indeed a transforming one with my surprise upon helping the victims in the spiritual side we also learned from them fortitude with their smiles on their faces.

Just to give you an update! We've received a text message from our friend in San Jose that there was a CONCERT there at around 11:00 a.m. today. Different dance troupes coming from Southern Leyte performed LIVE with their God-given dancing and singing talents. The main goal of the concert was to ease the heart of our beloved San Josenhons after the trauma they experienced during the typhoon. The event was initiated by the newly-elected barangay officials headed by Brgy. Chairwoman Evangeline Biliran and of course with the support of the former Governor of Southern Leyte. "LUGAW" and "ICE CREAM" were also served to the audiences. Thank you to our contributor Mr. Den Paul Palejaro. P.S. Coco Martin and the ABS-CBN Family will also visit the place on December 23. We'll keep you posted!

We always hear about the miracles God works during the Christmas season. In Tacloban there now stands a huge lighted Christmas tree in the middle of the ruin from the supertyphoon. There was a young couple who married on December 7 and had their wedding picture taken in front of a grounded ship surrounded by rubble in Tacloban. They wanted to inspire hope. Here in Santa Cruz, Bontoc, Southern Leyte my wife and I were blessed with an excellent medical report for her. She went to a sister in Christ who is an OB/GYN. The ultrasound and examination revealed that my wife is as capable of child bearing and birthing as a woman in her twenties! My wife is 44 years old. So those of you who have been praying for this 58 year old Abraham and his sweet wife be encouraged that God hears your prayers. Now we just have to follow instructions. As Edna often says, "God is good all the time." This will be my warmest Christmas ever but is the one that gives me the most hope for God's wonderful restoration of a broken life. ...

Commission On Youth STA. CRUZ YOUTH ORGANIZATION Sta. Cruz, Bontoc, Southern Leyte December 6, 2013 Dear Brother/Sister in Christ: Good day! Though we have been recently hit by the super Typhoon Yolanda, the Sta. Cruz Youth Organization (SCYO) remains faithful to its annual vow in instilling the real spirit of Christmas to our fellow. We, the Filipinos are known of our resiliency – our ability to cope up with any trial. Thus, it gives us another reason to celebrate Christmas: the fact that we’ve been safeguarded by our Almighty Father from the typhoon’s tirade. With relevance to this, SCYO will organize a series of activities to realize the aforementioned cause. On December 25, a talent show will be held. Part of the event is a game entitled Kwarta o Regalo wherein lucky players could win grocery gift packs and other useful prizes. The 4th Children’s Party will also be held on January 1, 2014 to highlight the coming of another year. Ideas have been expressed. Efforts have been exerted. But SCYO h ...

I have returned from my holiday in the Philippines. It was an interesting time and included a visit to Southern Leyte which involved a journey through the area hit by Typhoon Yolanda. The devastation has to be seen to be believed, no amount of photos can adequately show the extent of the damage. It is worth remembering that Cebu City also suffered an earthquake earlier in the year. That is what I call a double whammy. It was humbling to see people who had lost their homes just getting on with their lives and starting to rebuild. The happier outcome of this visit is that I have decided to move to the Philippines on a permanent basis in July 2014. It also gives me great pleasure to announce that Mary Ann Roces has agreed to become my wife. We have been corresponding for over 18 months and got on better than many married couples during my stay.
SUPER Typhoon Yolanda Hello and Happy Thanksgiving Everyone, I have a story for you. You have all heard the news no doubt about the Super Typhoon Haiyan (called Yolanda here) one of the most powerful storms ever recorded, it crashed across the central islands of the Philippines, packing sustained winds of up to 320 km/h (199mph) and destroyed the city of Tacloban where I had lived with my good friend and business partner Steve Colburn. Steve and I both married Filipinos. He settled in Tacloban and I settled in Libagon about 3hrs drive south in Southern Leyte. Steve has 3 children, 1 adopted, 1 natural and one on the way with his pregnant wife Anavil. I have one adopted child with my wife Jade. I wanted to share our experience with you so you have a true insider story of the storm experience you can share at your dinner table this Thanksgiving Weekend. Steve and our families are lucky. We lived, but 10,000 others did not. The storms impact lasted about 6hrs on Saturday morning, at 6am I am drinking my cof ...

Kangleon, Palo, Leyte, October 11, 2013 – The top police official in Eastern Visayas reiterated his directive to his men to continue hitting *** criminal elements behind the trafficking of illegal drugs in the region even as he announced the arrest of eight drug suspects in a series of police operations conducted recently. “While we are gaining headway in our campaign, all police units must sustain intensified police operations against illegal drugs as the drug menace will always remain as one of our primary concerns,” said Police Regional Office 8 (PRO8) chief PCSupt.

IGLESIA FILIPINA INDEPENDIENTE - yesterday, now and then…. (by: NERIO M BUNGCARAS, Parish Council Auditor, IFI, Parish of St. John The Baptist, San Juan, Southern Leyte, Philippines) The birth of Iglesia Filipina Independiente is the product of the Filipino people’s desire for religious, political, and social liberty. The liberty, deprived to them by the vicious Spanish authorities who dominated the Philippines for over three centuries. During those humiliating periods in the history of the Philippines, the organization of the Spanish civil government in the Philippines was simultaneously followed by the establishment of the parishes in the country. Although there were several Filipino priests who were already capable of ministering the parishes, most of the parishes were placed under the friar-curates, who belonged to the different religious orders in Spain. When the religious hierarchy of the Philippines under the Archbishop of Manila learned the abuses committed by the friars, he instituted the vis ...

Defects found in source code annul polls, says Comelec By Alvin Murcia Mindanao again appears to be the choice spot for automated electoral fraud and chaos in the 2013 national and local polls. Defects in the 36 precinct count optical scan (PCOS) machines distributed in various areas in Mindanao were found to be defective, Commission on Elections (Comelec) Regional Director Nilo Pipo was quoted as saying yesterday. Forty-four PCOS machines delivered to Eastern Visayas were also found to be defective. The Comelec in Tacloban City requested the replacement of 44 PCOS machines after they failed to function during the simultaneous regionwide final testing and sealing on Monday. Data from the Comelec regional office showed that 14 machines delivered to Leyte were not working; 20 in Northern Samar; five in Eastern Samar; three in Southern Leyte and two in Biliran. Samar initially reported eight non-working PCOS because it has yet to submit a report on the FTS (final testing and sealing) conducted in other preci ...

ON THIS DAY IN THE PHILIPPINES (2006) A massive mudslide occurs in Southern Leyte, Philippines; the official death toll is set at 1,126. A massive rock slide-debris avalanche occurred on 17 February 2006 in the Philippine province of Southern Leyte that caused widespread damage and loss of life. The deadly landslide followed a ten-day period of heavy rains and a minor earthquake (magnitude 2.6 on the Richter scale). The official death toll was 1,126. At around 10:30 on 17 February 2006, a cliff face of a ridge straddling the Philippine Fault collapsed in a combination rockslide-debris mass movement event, translocating and subsequently burying Guinsaugon village in the town of Saint Bernard. Up to ten smaller landslides had occurred within the previous week in the vicinity of St. Bernard, but Guinsaugon was the worst-hit community. Among the worst of the tragedies was the burial of the local elementary school, located nearest to the mountain ridge, as the landslide occurred when school was in session and ...

Blessed Pedro Calungsod (July 21, 1654 – April 2, 1672) was a young Roman Catholic Filipino sacristan and missionary catechist, who along with Spanish Jesuit missionary Blessed Diego Luis de San Vitores, suffered religious persecution and martyrdom on Guam for their missionary work in 1672. Calungsod was beatified on March 5, 2000 by Blessed Pope John Paul II. On February 18, 2012, Pope Benedict XVI officially announced at Saint Peter’s Basilica that Calungsod will be canonised on October 21, 2012. Very little is known about Pedro Calungsod. Historical records never mentioned his exact place of origin or who his parents were. He was merely identified as a teenage native of the Visayas in the Philippines. Historical research identifies Ginatilan in Cebu, Hinunangan and Hinundayan in Southern Leyte, and Molo district in Iloilo as probable places of origin. Loboc in Bohol also makes a claim. Moreover, no one even really knows how Calungsod looked like. Calungsod is often depicted as a young man wearing a ...

Since we started to stock handmade bags, Rein has been buying the handmade bags from a retail outlet in Hilongos. However Filipino Jewelries and Crafts philosophy is to buy from the individual artisans or cooperatives as it makes it easier to control quality, supplies and respond to customer requests. We had been told by someone who came to the house that there were abaca bag makers in Southern Leyte. The owner of the shop was buying from Bohol, a place on our list of places to go. Bicol is also a good location for finding native handmade bags. Previously we had had one unsuccessful journey to Javier to look for abaca handbags but the locals no longer made them as the abaca banana plantations had been devastated with disease. Another reason for visiting Southern Leyte was that Rein had found suppliers of Fashion Jewelries Hermit crab lamp- this was actually for myself as my shell schooner lamp had disappeared.

I have ordered my provincial and local officials to link with other agencies. - The typhoon’s radius would cover almost the provinces in Mindanao and Visayas and Palawan. - The areas that we are looking at are the same areas that we are watching before. Remember the Saint Bernard, Southern Leyte and Cagayan de Oro. - I would like to say that it is correct to declare total log ban in these areas (parts of Mindanao). - The total number of illegal logging hotspots is now down from 197 to 31. - Be very careful with this typhoon.

First recorded song was Love Me Again under Octo-Arts in 1986 as Chona Velasquez. It got cold response. At early elementary age, Regine joined various singing competitions in provinces around the country. Out of 200 competitions she entered, she won 67 of them. She credits her singing talent to her father, who would submerge her in water up to her neck and have her do vocal exercises to strengthen her voice. At 14, she joined Bagong Kampeon, a television contest featuring the singing talents of Filipinos. She qualified with "Saan Ako Nagkamali", chosen by her father, and won with "In Your Eyes". The prize was a record deal from Octo-Arts. In her guesting at the talk-show Penthouse Live on February 16, 1986 after her first single flopped, host Martin Nievera' suggested Ms. Velasquez to use the more glamorous name Regine, instead of her then name, Chona. Show producer Ronnie Henares also offered to manage her career which she accepted. Her father resigned from his job as a construction estimator to fully at ...

Maasin Cathedral, One of the oldest church in the Philippines. The city of Maasin has a lot to offer in terms of tourist destination, it is also the perfect place to start and access other tourist areas in the neighboring towns and cities. Brief History Maasin was founded by the Jesuits in 1700 (1737 is another date given but Redondo, citing Cavada, gives the year as 1755). Formerly called Tagnipa, its present name means “salty” in local parlance. When the Jesuits were expelled from the country, the Augustinians took over in 1768 but later relinquished it to the Franciscans between 1848 and 1896. Maasin was made into a city on August 10, 2000 by virtue of Republic Act No. 8796.

Dale Armstrong thanks for the class picture. Imagine I looked like that! The new posted picture is Cloudine Asis, one of two girls living with us and attending school. She's second semester at Southern Leyte State University. She's seventeen, speaks good English (thanks to my constant hounding), has good manners (again thanks to me never letting anything pass unnoticed) and she's smiley. Very smart A student with an hourglass figure. High moral character like her other sisters. If this sounds like a sales pitch, that's exactly what it is.

Do these authorities know that the anti-cybercrime law is still under TRO? And why do these authorities keep on sending "INVITATIONS"? I thought sending "invitations" by military/police authorities stopped after EDSA 1986?

Good news: an honest fellow from St. Bernard, Southern Leyte has found and returned a brand new phone I most probably have left at a cottage by the peak of Hindag-An Falls and Forest Park a week ago before we headed to Cebu. Just goes to prove that Leyte does not lack of good Samaritans. Especially because it's just a San Juanico Bridge away from Samar, the home of Samaritans.
