GITUMBOK sa Augustinian community sa Basilica Minore del Sto. Niño (BMSN) de Cebu ang custodianship ug religious value isip nagunang rason nga wala sila motugot nga ang imahen ni Sto. Niño de Cebu dili ideklarar nga National Cultural Treasure (NCT) sa National Museum of the Philippines (NMP) karong tuiga.

Sa online media conference sa hapon sa Biyernes, Abril 16, 2021, si Fr. Ric Anthony Reyes, official spokesperson sa BMSN, niasoy sa Cebu reporters nga atol sa pagdapit kaniya sa NMP, namalandong sila sa wala pa magtuki kon duna bay panginahanglana sa pagdeklarar sa imahen isip NCT.

“First and foremost, the Augustinians would like to make them understand that the image is more than just a cultural treasure because it is a religious con,” matod Reyes.

“We would like to make a kind of a statement that the Augustinians would have that responsibility (custodianship). Ganahan kami nga among responsibilidad gyod na siya nga kami gyod ang custodian sa religious icon,” dason niya.

Niadtong Abril 14, 2021, subay sa selebrasyon sa 500 Years of Christianity in the Philippines, ang NMP nihatag og collecti e declaration sa Basilica Minore’s Church ug convent ug ang Pavilion sa Magellan’s Cross isip NCTs.

Matod ni Reyes, sila gipahibalo sa ubang miyembro sa ilang congregation sa nasod nga kini makaapektar sa ilang communal heritage isip Augustinians.

“Kani lang muna. Maybe lang siguro later kung naa may later na recognitions,” dugang ni Reyes.

Si Audrey Dawn Tomada sa NMP, kinsa nitambong, niila ug nitahod sa baroganan sa Augustinian friars.

“When we declare, the state is there to help property owner to protect, conserve, and preserve your cultural property with our expertise and our assistance and of course, if worse comes to worse like what happened in 2013 following the 7.2 magnitude earthquake didto man gud nato nakita nga immediate,” matod ni Tomada.
