Closing Ceremony of Diocesan Phase process of cause of Martyrdom of Padre Francesco Palliola, S.J. this upcoming September 14, 2017!

This upcoming September 14, 2017 (Thursday) there will be a closing ceremony of Diocesan Phase process of cause of Martyrdom of Padre Francesco Palliola, S.J. and thanksgiving mass at 10:00 am at Our Lady of Most Holy Rosary Cathedral Parish, Dipolog City, Diocese of Dipolog. All are invited. Archbishops, priests, and other visitors, lay faithful, religious will witness this historical event. Soon Fr. Francesco will be a Saint in Mindanao. First is the beautification process and next will be the canonization.

Born into a noble family, in the town of Nola in Naples, Italy on May 10, 1612, Palliola was part of a 40-man Jesuit expedition to the Philippines.

‘Truly Mindanaoan’

The priest was martyred at Ponot, now Jose S. Dalman town, on Jan. 29, 1648 by Tampilo, a converted native leader who had left the faith, and whom Palliola was trying to bring back to the Church. He died at 35.

Bishop Severo Caermare said: “Padre Palliola may have been Neapolitan, an Italian by birth; but his love for God, his great passion for mission and caring for the people of the Zamboanga Peninsula, particularly the Subanon lumad, made him truly Mindanaoan.”

Investigative process

After traveling for two years, he finally landed in Iligan on Jan. 2, 1644, beginning a mission in Mindanao that would take him to Dipolog, Dapitan, and the rest of the Zamboanga Peninsula, spreading the Catholic faith to the locals, including the lumads.

The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas archives houses a painting showing Palliola with a dagger piercing his throat. “Together with traditions passed on since his death, and written records of individuals who have been healed after praying to him, the painting is a reminder of Fr. Palliola’s lasting impact on the people of the Peninsula. His grave site, marked by a modest memorial, continues to be regularly visited by those who seek his intercession,” reads a press release by the Diocese of Dipolog.

The investigative process “to ascertain the authenticity of his life, the renown of his sanctity, and the miracles attributed to him” will be undertaken not just the Diocese of Dipolog, but also the Jesuits and the Augustinian Recollects, who had worked in the area. (Source: CBCP NEWS).

for my simple apologetics explanation (Bro. Nicholai):

Ang Santo ay inihalintulad sa mga bayani ng ating bansa. Kagaya ni Dr. Jose Rizal at iba pa mga bayani sa bansa. Ang Santo ay bayani sa pananampalataya. Hindi po sila mga Dios walang official teaching ang Simbahan diyan.

English: New American Standard Bible
James 5:
16. Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.

A prayer of a Saint is an intercessory prayer, a prayer in behalf.

Mababasa din sa Book of Revelation yung mga prayers sa mga taong pinatay because of preaching the word of God.

English: New American Standard Bible
Revelation 6:
9. When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had maintained;
10. and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, will You refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?”
