CEBU - Archbishop Jose Palma said the resurrection of Jesus Christ should serve as a lesson for Catholics to rise from dire situations.
“Ang pagsaulog sa pagkabanhaw ni Kristo pahinumdum natong tanan nga ang atong gisundan na Diyos kay diyos na madaugon; nga ang buot ipahinumdom nato nga ang kaayo mudaog sa kadautan (Celebrating the resurrection of Christ should remind us all that we follow a God who wins over adversity; it should also remind us that good will always triumph over evil),” Palma said.
AUTHORITIES have tightened the security of bus terminals in Cagayan de Oro City for smooth and safe trips of the commuters.
Every year, the Catholics commemorate the Holy Week and they usually go home to their towns to partake the Lent traditions and practices like the station of the cross, the seven last words and the Easter vigil or by simply spending it with their families in the provinces as an opportunity to catch up with their lives.
THE City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (CDRRMO) has already made preparations in time for the observance of the Holy Week on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday.
Mario Verner Monsanto, CDRRMO chief, said teams of responders will be deployed to Malasag site in Barangay Cugman and Guadalupe shrine in Igbalalay Hills in Barangay Tablon, two of the religious areas in the city where people are expected to converge by the hundreds this week.
HUNDREDS of parishioners crowded around the red-caped image of Jesus Christ beside the ruins of St. Michael de Archangel Parish Church, waving palm leaves as the parish priest sprinkled holy water.
Almost six months after the 7.2 magnitude earthquake, the old church in Clarin, Bohol still lay in ruins, with only its façade standing.
