Sinulog Festival in honor of the Sto. Niño de Cebu.

Sinulog Festival in honor of the Sto. Niño de Cebu.

The Splendor of the Church

WE RECEIVED COMPLAINTS FROM FRIENDS THAT AN ARTICLE IN YAHOO NEWS.PHILIPPINES HAS OFFENSIVELY REFERRED TO THE STO. NIÑO AS PAGAN OF ORIGIN. WELL, OF COURSE THIS IS VERY INSULTING TO CATHOLICS ESPECIALLY TO FILIPINO CATHOLICS WHO ARE SO DEEPLY INLOVED WITH THE CHILD JESUS WHO IS THE DECLARED KING OF THE PHILIPPINES.

SO I READ THE ARTICLE AND INSTEAD OF GETTING ANGRY I FOUND IT A VERY NICE PRESENTATION OF THE FEAST AND THE HISTORY OF THE BIRTH OF CHRISTIANITY IN OUR COUNTRY. THE AUTHOR CATEGORICALLY REFERS TO OUR FAITH AS CHRISTIANITY AND REFERRED TO THE SACRED IMAGE WE VENERATE AS THE IMAGE OF THE CHILD JESUS.  

I THINK THE ROOF OF THE NEGATIVE REACTION IS THIS: “Today, Sinulog commemorates the Filipino’s pagan origin, the highly revered image of the Santo Niño and the acceptance of Christianity.” BUT, CAREFUL READING OF THE TEXT AND ITS CONTEXT IT ACTUALLY DOESN’T SAY THAT THE STO. NIÑO IS PAGAN IN ORIGIN. WHAT HE WAS SAYING IS THAT THE PHILIPPINES WAS ORIGINALLY A PAGAN NATION, WE WERE PAGAN PEOPLE UNTIL THE COMING OF CHRISTIANITY THROUGH THE CONVERSION OF KING HUMABON. WE CANNOT INTERPRET IT AS AN INSULT TO THE STO. NIÑO BECAUSE IT IS ALREADY CATEGORICALLY DECLARED THAT THE HOLY CHILD IS THE LORD JESUS HIMSELF: “He introduced Christianity and presented the image of the Santo Niño (Child Jesus) as a gift to Hara Amihan, wife of Cebu’s Rajah Humabon who was later named Queen Juana.” 

SO REST YOUR HEARTS DEAR BROTHERS AND SISTERS. YOU MERELY MISINTERPRETED THE ARTICLE OR MAYBE THE AUTHOR WAS NOT ABLE TO PUT THAT PARTICULAR STATEMENT IN A MORE APPROPRIATE MANNER OF EXPRESSION. BUT I DON’T SEE ANY REASON TO PROTEST IT. INSTEAD OF GETTING ANGRY ENJOY THE BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS CONTAINED IN THE ARTICLE.

 

Sinulog Solemn Procession 2015

Despite the overcast weather and sporadic rain because of tropical storm Amang, the Cebuanos remained intact and dedicated during the Solemn Procession of the Miraculous Image of Sto. Niño (Child Jesus) from the Basilica del Sto. Niño in Cebu City, Philippines held last Saturday January 17.

Devotees filled the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño de Cebu Pilgrim Center last January 17.

At past noon, I watched the crowd gathered at the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño de Cebu Pilgrim Center, fronting the Basilica del Sto. Niño Church, where the original Image of the Sto. Niño is enshrined. A touching scene greeted me – people were waving their hands, most of them carrying images of the Child Jesus as they praise.

Devotees carry varied images of the Sto. Niño at the solemn procession.

Rowena Fuentes, a mother of two boys from Lapu-Lapu, has been joining the Solemn Procession carrying the image of the Sto. Niño for 12 years now.“This was a wedding gift to us back in 2002. The next year, I decided to join the Sinulog Solemn Procession as thanksgiving and praise to the Child Jesus. He then blessed me with two healthy boys”, she recounted.

A sea of Sinulog devotees.

Traffic was rerouted by 10:00 A.M. for the procession. The route was different from last year’s course. The solemn procession, attended by millions, commenced at Basilica del Sto. Niño along Osmeña Boulevard. The procession followed Fuente Rotunda and turned right at General Maxilom Avenue. The procession then proceeded to Carreta Junction, turned right to New Imus Road and left turn to M.J Cuenco Avenue. It then followed the right turn to Osmeña Boulevard and turned left to P.Burgos Street before returning to Basilica del Sto. Niño.

Sinulog is deeply rooted in history and faith. It has grown into the country’s grandest festival, attracting the biggest crowd each year. In 1521, Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan landed in Cebu to plant the cross on its shore. He introduced Christianity and presented the image of the Santo Niño (Child Jesus) as a gift to Hara Amihan, wife of Cebu’s Rajah Humabon who was later named Queen Juana. Today, Sinulog commemorates the Filipino’s pagan origin, the highly revered image of the Santo Niño and the acceptance of Christianity. After the Solemn Procession, a mass was held at Basilica del Sto. Niño. The church was filled with devotees; some even heard the mass at the nearby government building. The crowd cheered as impressive fireworks was displayed after the mass.

The infectious Sinulog vibe. Crowd gathers at a souvenir shop playing Sinulog music.

Meanwhile, loud drum beats, trumpets blowing and crowd singing to the tune of Sinulog music at the nearby souvenir shop turned infectious. People started to flock near the performers; cheering, dancing and raising the images of Santo Niño as they shout Pit Senyor! The Sinulog fever has indeed started, casting a jovial spell around the bustling Cebu City.

Commission on Doctrine of the Faith (ECDF)

December 16, 2016

Mr. Ramon Gitamondoc

CFD National President (2010-2016)

Dear Mr. Gitamondoc,

Thank you for contacting us on the question of the validity of the expression “God died”, in your email dated December 14, 2016.

You asked for answers to the following questions: (I quote)

“1) Is it a correct understanding of the Catholic Faith to say that when Jesus suffered and died that only his human nature suffered and died and not the divine person?’

Answer: No, it is not correct. When the Lord Jesus Christ died, it is proper to say that God died. The reason is this: the subject of the actions of Jesus is the divine Person (i.e., God). Nature” – in Metaphysics – is the “principle of operation”; the subject (“suppositum”, the subject of operation) is always the person (in rational beings).

“2) Is it a correct understanding of the teaching of the Catechism of the Council of Trent to say that the expression “God died” is not to be understood literally but rather figuratively (i.e., anthropomorphism and/or synecdoche)?”

Answer: No, it is not correct. The expression “God died” is to be understood literally, not figuratively.

The contents of the dossier of statements and explanations from various Bishops and priests are in accord with the teachings of the Church.

There is nothing more to add to those explanations. It is suggested that the basics of Metaphysics be taught to the members of the CFD. This “controversy” within CFD could have been avoided if the distinction between “nature” and “person” were grasped from the outset. The most outstanding sources for the study of the Holy Trinity and the Incarnation is the Summa Theologiae and the Summa Contra Gentiles of St. Thomas Aquinas.

May the Lord bless your laudable work for the  Church.

Rev. Fr. Luis P. Supan, Ph.D.

Executive Secretary

CBCP Commission on the Doctrine of the Faith

The Splendor of the Church

FINALLY, THE MUCH AWAITED DECISION HAS BEEN GIVEN AND IT CAME DIRECT FROM THE CBCP DOCTRINAL COMMISSION EXECUTIVE SECRETARY, REV. FR. LUIS P. SUPAN. ON HIS PART, FR. SUPAN IS A PRIEST OF GREAT ERUDITION AND SOLID ORTHODOXY. HE HAS A DOCTORATE IN PHILOSOPHY AND A MEMBER OF THE OPUS DEI.

WE HOPE AND PRAY THAT THIS DECISION IS ENOUGH TO CLARIFY THE MATTER AND STOP THOSE WHO ARE PRETENDING TO BE EXPERTS IN DOGMATIC THEOLOGY EVEN THOUGH LACKING IN COMPETENCE AND PROPER TRAINING IN SUCH A FIELD. MAY THE AUTHORITY OF THE CHURCH ENLIGHTEN THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF THESE PEOPLE TO SUBMIT TO THE PROPER EXPLANATION OF THE CHURCH MAGISTERIUM LED BY ARCHBISHOP JOSE PALMA OF CEBU, BISHOP LEONARDO MEDROSO OF TAGBILARAN, BISHOP CHRISTIAN NOEL – THE BISHOP EMERITUS OF TAGBILARAN… THEN THE PRIESTS CONSULTANTS: FR. CARLOS ESTRADA, S.T.L  LICENTIATE IN CHRISTOLOGY FROM HOLY CROSS UNIVERSITY IN ROME, PROFESSOR OF THEOLOGY AND SUPERIOR OF THE OPUS DEI IN THE PHILIPPINES, FR. RUSSEL BANTILES, S.T.D. Summa cum Laude FROM NAVARRE UNIVERSITY, FR. ABE P. ARGANIOSA, S.T.B – FORMER NATIONAL SPIRITUAL DIRECTOR OF CFD AND FR. JORGE S. ANGGA, S.T.B OF CFD DAVAO.

LET THIS BE THE END OF THIS CONTROVERSY. WE BESEECH ALL CFD MEMBERS TO HEED THE MAGISTERIAL VOICE OF YOUR SHEPHERDS THE BISHOPS AND PRIESTS RATHER THAN THOSE WHO LACK AUTHORITY AND COMPETENCE. LISTEN TO THE OFFICIAL TEACHERS OF THE CHURCH AND NOT THE SELF PROCLAIMED INTERPRETATION OF SOME.

KAPANGANAKAN NI JESUS SA BUWAN NG DISYEMBRE

Tungkol naman sa tuligsang nagsasabing hindi ipinanganak sa buwan ng Disyembre, alamin natin ito sa Banal na Kasulatan. Ang lahi ng mga Judio ay mula sa lahi ni Abraham. At ayon sa kasulatan wala pang Judio or Israel noong mga panahong iyon. Si Abraham ay ipinanganak sa UR sakop ng Chaldea ay isang pagano. Pinili siya ng Diyos na maging Ama ng maraming bansa na magiging piling tao ng Diyos. Sa paglipas ng panahon ang lahing ito ni Abraham ay dumami na napakarami sa loob ng 430 taon pagkatigil nila sa bansang Ehipto. Sa bansang Ehipto maraming bagay ang kanilang natutunan bago sila lumikas sa pamumuno naman ni Moises. Sa panahong iyon ang bansang Ehipto ay sariling kalendaryo at alpabeto. Ang kanilang kalendaryo ay binubuo ng 29 at 30 araw sa loob ng isang buwan. Ang isang taon sa kanila ay binubuo ng labindalawang buwan. Noon lumikas ang mga Israelita sa Ehipto sila man ay mayroon na ring kalendaryo na binubuo rin ng tulad sa bansang Ehipto. Noong bago sila sakupin ng bansang Babylonia ang Israel ay mayroon ng bagong kalendaryong sisusunod. Ang kalendaryong ito ay gamit pa rin ng isilang si Cristo. Noong isilang si Cristo ang Judio ay nasa ilalim ng Imperyong Romano. Ang mga Romano naman ay mayroon sariling kalendaryo at tinatawag itong Julian Calendar.

Ang Julian Calendar ay umiral hanggang ika-17 siglo. At noong ika-17 siglo nagkaroon naman ng panibagong kalendaryo at tinawag itong Gregorian Calendar.

Ang mga Hebreo ay may mga batas panrelihiyong sinusunod. At isa sa mga batas na ito ay ang paghahandog na ginagawa ang mga Saserdote tuwing sasapit ang ika-10 ng ika-7 buwan ng taon. Tinatawg nila ang araw na ito ng “Araw ng Bayad-Sala” (Day of Atonement).

“Sapagkat sa araw na ito gagawin ang pagtubos sa inyo upang linisin kayo, sa lahat ng inyong mga kasalanan ay magiging malinis kayo sa harap ng Panginoon” (Lev. 16:30).

“Gayon man sa ika-sampung araw nitong ika-pitong buwan ay araw ng pagtubos, magiging sa inyo’y banal na pagpupulong, at pagdadalamhatiin ninyo ang inyong mga kaluluwa, at maghahandog kayo ng handog sa panginoon na pinaraan sa apoy” (Lev. 23:27).

Ang kaugaliang ito na tinatawag nilang batas ng relihiyon ay umabot hanggang sa panunungkulan ni Zacarias na ama ni Juan Bautista.

“Ang pangkat ni Zacarias ang nanungkulan noon, at siya’y naglilingkod sa harapan ng Diyos bilang saserdote” (Lk. 1:8).

Si Zacarias ang nanunungkulan noon bilang saserdote. Sa pagsapit ng panahon ng pag-aalay ng handog para sa kasalanan ng tao. Si Zacarias ang nagkapalad na nahirang na maghandog ngkamanyang. At noon pumasok si Zacarias sa loob ng Dakong Kabanal-banalan sa araw na iyon ng ika-10 ng ika-7 buwan, nagpakita sa kanya ang isang anghel ng Diyos.

“Walang anu-ano’y napakita sa kanya ang isang anghel ng Panginoon, nakatayo sag awing kanan ng dambana ng kamangyang. Nagulat si Zacarias at sinidlan ng matinding takot nang makit ang anghel. Ngunit sinabi nito sa kanya, Huwag kang matakot, Zacaria! Dininig ng Diyos ang iyong dalangin. Kayo ni Elisabet ay magkakaroon ng anak na lalaki at Juan ang ipangangalan mo sa kanya” (Lk. 1:11-13).

Ang Gawain ng isang Saserdote simula ika-10 ng ika-7 buwan ay natatapos ng 12 araw. Pagkatapos ng gawaing ito at saka pa lamang siya makakauwi ng bahay (2 Cron. 7:9-10).

“Iyong salitain sa mga anak ni Israel na
sabihin sa ika-labing limang araw ng ika-pitong buwang ito ay 
kapistahan ng mga balag na pitong araw sa Panginoon” (Lev. 23:34).

“Kayo’y tatahan sa mga balag na pitong araw, yaong lahat ng tubo sa Israel ay tatahan sa mga balag” (Lev. 23:42).

Sa loob ng labin-dalawang araw si Zacarias ay titigil sa temptlo at sa ika-23 ng ika-pitong buwan saka pa lamang siya uuwi ng bahay (2 Cron. 7:9-10).

“Nang matapos ang panahon ng paglilingkod ay umuwi na siya. Hindi nga nagtagal at naglihi si Elisabet sa kanyang asawa, at hindi unalis ng bahay sa loob ng limang buwan” (Lk. 1:23).

Simulan nating bilangin ang pagdadalang-tao ni Elisabet. Ibagay natin ito sa kalendaryo ng mga Judio. Sa kalendaryo ng mg Judio nagpakita ang anghel kay Zacarias sa buwan ng Tishri.

Ang kalendaryo ng mga Judio sa kapanahunan ni Zacarias bilang isang Saserdote.

Noong magpakita ang anghel Gabriel kay 
Zacarias ay ika-10 ng ika-7 buwan noon ng paghahandog ng kamanyang sa Dakong Kabanl-banalan. Ang ika-7 buwan ayon sa Hebrew Calendar ay buwan ng Tishri at sa Julain Calendar naman ay Styembre. Kinuha ang Alitang Setyemvre mula sa salitang Septem (Latin) na ang kahulugan ay pito (7). Sa buwang ito ipinahayag ng anghel Gabriel kay Zacarias na ang kanyang asawang si Elisabet ay maglilihi at manganganak ng isang lalaki. Mula sa buwang ito simulan nating bilangin ang paglilihi ni Elisabet.

Hebrew Calendar ———————-Julian Calendar

1. Tishri -Marshevan….…Setyembre-Oktobre ——-1 buwan ang tiyan

ni Elisabet

2. Marshevan-Chislev……Oktobre-Nobyembre ——2

3.Chislev-Tebeth……….…Nobyembre-Disyembre—3

4.Tebeth-Shebat………….Disyembre-Enero———-4

5.Shebat-Adar ……………Enero-Pebrero————–5

6. Adar-Nissan……………Pebrero-Marso————-6

Sa ika-anim na buwan ng pagdadalang-tao ni Elisabet, dinalaw naman si Maria ng anghel Gabriel.

“Nang ikaanim na buwan na ng pagdadalang-tao ni Elisabet ang anghel Gabriel ay sinugo ng Diyos sa Nasaret, Galilea” (Lk.1:26).

Hindi nagtagal pagka-alis ng anghel na dumalaw kay Maria, siya ay pumunta kay Elisabet. Sa pagkikita nilang iyo binati siya ni Elisabet at sinabi ang tungkol sa kanyang dinadala sa sinapupunan. Maliwanag na noong dumalaw si Maria mayroon nang laman ang kanyang bahay-bata.

“Tumira si Maria kina Elisabet nang may tatlong buwan at saka umuwi” (Lukas 1:56).

Anim na buwan ang tiyan ni Elisabet ng dumalaw si Maria sa bahay nito sa Judea. Tatlong buwan siyang tumigil dito at nang umuwi siya maaaring nakapanganak na si Elisabet. Muling bilangin natin ang mga buwan ng pagkatigil ni Maria sa bahay ni Elisabet.

7. Nissan-Iyyar……………Marso-Abril————-7-buwan na

ang tiyan ni Elisabet

8.Iyyar-Suvan………………Abril-Mayo——————8

9. Suvan-Tammuz………..Mayo-Hunyo—————-9

Kung ang ika-siyam na buwan ng pagdadalang-tao ni Elisabet ay Tammus (Hebrew calendar) pumapatak naman itong Hunyo sa Julian Calendar. Ang pagdadalang-tao ng isang babae ay 9 na buwan at ang buwan ng Tammuz ay pumapatak sa tamang bilang ng pagdadalang-tao ng babae. Kung kaya’t si Juan ay ipinanganak sa buwan ng Tammuz o Hunyo. Ang Simbahang Katoliko ay ipinagdiriwang ang kaarawan ni San Juan Bautista tuwing sasapit ang ika-24 ng Hunyo. At ayon sa bilang ng buwan mula noong buwan ng Tishri hanggang sa buwan ng Tammus ito’y hustong ika-siyam na buwan ng pagdadalang-tao ni Elisabet. At noong ipanganak naman si Juan sa buwang ito ay si Maria naman ay tatlong buwan nang nagdadalang-tao. Sapagkat noong dumalaw ang anghel sa kanya ay buwan ng Nissan at noong nagpunta siya kay Elisabet ay may laman na ang kanyang sinapupunan. Mula nang dumating siya sa (bulubundukin ng) Judea hanggang sa umalis siya may tatlong buwan na ang kanyang dinadala. Bilangin natin ang buwan ng pagdadalang-tao ni Maria.

1.. Nissan-Iyyar……Marso-Abril ——-1 buwan ang tiyan ni Maria

2. Iyyar-Suavan………Abril-Mayo————2

3. Suvan-Tammuz …..Mayo-Hunyo———-3

4. Tammuz-Ab…………Hunyo-Hulyo———-4

5. Ab-Elul………………Hulyo-Agosto———5

6. Elul-Tishri……………Agosto-Setyembre—–6

7.Tishri-Marshevan ……Setyembre–Oktobre—7

8. Marshevan-Chislev…..Oktobre-Nobyember—8

9. Chislev-Tebeth………Nobyembre-Disyembre-9

Ang tunay na bilang ng pagdadalang-tao ng isang babae ay pumapatak lamang ng siyam na buwan. At ayon sa ginawa nating pagbilang sa paglilihi ni Maria ang ika-9 na buwan ay ang Tebeth.Lumalabas ngayon na si Jesus ay ipinanganak sa buwan ng Tebeth na ang katumbas sa Julian Calendar ay Disyembre. Ang ika-anim na buwan ng pagdadalangtao ni Elisabet ay buwan ng Nissan (Hebrew Calendar) at Marso naman sa Julian Calendar. Ito ang unang buwan ng pagdadalang-tao ni Maria at ang ika-9 ay ang buwan ng tebeth (Hebrew Calendar) at Disyembre naman sa Julian Calendar. Ang araw naman ay nagsisimula sa 6:00 ng hapon ng sumunod na araw. Noong isilang si Jesus ay hindi taglamig na pilit na pinalalabas ng mga kaaway na panahon ng taglamig. Ang buwan ng Tebeth ay hindi taglamig na di tulad sa Gregorian Calendar. Kaya naman mayroon tayong mababasa na noong isilang si Jesus ay mayroong nagpapastol ng tupa nang gabing iyon. Kung ang panahong iyon ay taglamig walang mangangahas magpastol ng tupa sa tindi ng lamig sa kalagitnaang Asya.

Sa ikalilinaw ng marami, narito ang paghahambing ng mga kalendaryo noon at sa kalendaryo sa kasalukuyan.

Buwan Hebrew Julian Gregorian

1. Nissan Marso Enero

2. Iyyar Abril Pebrero

3. Suvan Mayo Marso

4. Tammuz Hunyo Abril

5. Ab Hulyo Mayo

6. Elul Agosto Hunyo

7. Tishri Setyembre Hulyo

8. Marshevan Oktobre Agosto

9. Chislev Nobyembre Setyembre

10. Tebeth DISYEMBRE Octobre

11. Shebat Enero Nobyembre

12. Adar Pebrero Disyembre

Mapapansin natin na ang buwan ng Tebeth (DISYEMBRE) sa hebrw at Julian Calendar ay pumapatak sa buwan ng Oktobre sa Gregorian Calendar. At itong Gregorian Calendar ay ginamit lamang noong ika-17 siglo at ang gamit noon ay Julian Calendar. Kaya’t maliwanang na si Jesus ay isinilang noong DISYEMBRE at hindi Oktobre.

[Hindi na pinalitan sa bagong kalendaryo ang ika-25 ng Disyembre bilang araw ng kapanganakan ng Panginoong Jesukristo]
