“Proclaim the Word, Profess the Faith” is the theme of this year’s celebration of the National Bible Week and National Bible Sunday, which also coincided with the Vocation Week Celebration at the Ateneo de Naga University last January 21-25, 2013. On the other hand, the National Bible Week was celebrated last January 21-27. Because of these two important events, the Catholic Bible School on the Air, a weekly radio program over 98.3 DWRV-FM every Sunday, from 3:30 to 4:30 in the afternoon, celebrated both occasions last Sunday, January 27, 2013. Vocation promoters from five different religious congregations in the Archdiocese of Caceres were invited to talk about their respective congregations and discuss how they proclaim the Word of God and bear witness to the Faith in their own area of apostolate or mission.

The contemplative sisters of the Order of Discalced Carmelites, who do not go out of their convent premises, proclaim the Word by bearing witness to Christ to one another and by praying for the people of God. The Missionaries of the Poor proclaim the Word by their loving service to the poor and the least privileged members of our society. Another very challenging apostolate was discussed by the Sister of the Little Mission for the Deaf, wherein they have to communicate the Word to people who could not hear nor speak. They do it by sign language or lip reading. The Daughters of Mary, Mother of the Church, on the other hand, proclaim the Word through their various apostolates such as catechesis, schools, retreat houses, care for elderly priests, and assistance in various parish offices and diocesan centers.

The Daughters of St. Paul proclaim the Word through the modern means of communication such as the radio, television, print media, and internet via their website Despite the diverse forms of proclaiming the Word, everybody agreed that being a witness of life is the best expression of one’s faith in Jesus Christ. Proclamation of the Word should not only be through the mouth but by incarnating Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh, into the life of every believer.

  • Theanna: I feel sad for young Kisha and her pretty picture, spoiled by a tirade of "the political monstrosity obtaining (sic) in our country..." And it's you, (writer with no name) not her, who "virtually hurled a challenge..." I'm not a professional photographer but I know a lot about it. If this was supposed to be a sunset, where is the sun? If you called it "cogon grass with flowers" that would have been more appropriate. If the picture was enhanced, it was overdone and unrealistic.

  • Theanna: Thanks Judge for that timely and alarming info on the country's postal service. I thought that by now, things are much better than when I was there. May I add a few cents worth of fond remembrance of the late fabulous Fr. James Reuter, SJ? I never met him but my brothers and male relatives were all Ateneans and Fr.Reuter's name was often mentioned at our house. When I heard that Roxanne of Cyranno de Bergerac was being played by one of the handsomest guys in school, I had to see it. Also, my brother told us about the time our father and he met him on Ateneo Ave. After exchanging greetings, he asked father, " Is he your eldest son?" My father replied, "Oh no, my eldest son is a daughter." The whole family burst into tearful laughter. View Post
  • Theanna: Glad that you're back, Mr. Kenkoy. Missed you and my Bikol language lessons. My native dialect sounds foreign to me now. Kenkoy was my favorite pinoy komiks but I was caught reading American Archie when I was supposed to be following a book discussion in class. View Post

  • Theanna: What happened to the news bits under this picture? View Post
  • Theanna: Thanks for the above concerns. I thought I was the only one who sensed something odd, since I read the news printed under the Business section on Nov.15. I posted a comment, after much deliberation, on Nov. 17 re the offensive word in the headline. My simple arithmetic doesn't add up to the expected results of this huge 3billion peso project. I feel like the child in Hans Christian Andersen's story of "The Emperor's New Clothes". I can't figure out how the people there can generate 100 tons of garbage a day. View Post

  • Pastor Dan: Can we rely on the government to be able to address the perennial problem of hunger and malnutrition among marginalized children ? Your guess is as good as mine... I just thought we could be more introspective with the developmental role of privately funded NGOs. The NGOs can play a crucial role in addressing this issue... more so if the present dispensation manifest some tangible support for them... View Post
  • Engr. Efren Rempola: Tama ka dyan, Manoy Joel, bako man si Fortuno o si Aga Muhlach an mabugtak saimo sa Kapitolyo tangaring ibalik mo sa mga taga-Camarines Sur an harong na ini. Kun talagang habo saimo ni Aga, sa cuarto distrito, yaon baga si dating Cong. Wimpy Fuentebella asin an mga Alcalde na supotado ki Spkr Noli Fuentebella. Dae naman yan ma-iriba ki Gurang na Villafuerte ta aram naman ninda na drama man sana an labanan kan mag-amang Luis asin L-Ray. Sa quinto distrito (Rinconada), Manoy Joel, yaon baga si dating Cong Nancing Alfelor. Aram man sana kan gabos na Rinconada na iyo ini an tunay na LP bakong si Fortuno. Dae naman pati yan ma-iriba ki Gurang na Villafuerte nin huli ta bistado na an iwal-mag-ama na sarong pakitang-tao lang tangaring sinda-sinda na sana an maglaban sa eleccion, eh, ngonyan yaon ka dyan Manoy, dikit na sacripisyo na lang, hahalion na an mag-ama asin ma-ibabalik na an Kapitolyo sa mga tao.

More BPOs might operate in the city as the confidence on power supply is high. Good work Mayor John Bongat! View Post
