Catholic Church needs to help ‘deepen’ PH democracy
Feb 28, 2021 Jezreel Ines
After defending democracy in EDSA exactly 35 years ago, the Catholic Church now needs to help deepen the Philippines’ gains from the People Power Revolution of 1986, an expert said.
“Defending is just a first step. Deepening is a different story, and that is the challenge to our church these days,” said Arjan Aguirre, political science professor from Ateneo de Manila University, in an online forum titled "Usap-Usapang Kalayaan: Conversations on Freedom” on Wednesday, February 24.

Numerous miracles have been wrought by the power of the Santo Niño. It is said that a voluminous book is needed to contain all the attestations and testimonials of the goodness and mercy of the Infant Jesus of Cebu. Considered as the prime of all Christian relics in the Philippines, the image of the Infant Jesus continues to shine as the lodestar that attracts the hearts of the Filipino people.

History from The Archives: The Early History of the Sto. Niño de Cebu
Jan 25, 2021 Danny Gerona

This April, the Philippines will be celebrating the 500th year of the introduction of Christianity in the Philippines. And one religious icon closely tied to this celebration is the Santo Nino, believed to be the only surviving relic of this historic event.

This 2021, the Philippines and its entire Catholic community will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the arrival of the image of Sto. Niño in Cebu. The Augustinians, caretakers of the icon of the Holy Child, the Basilica, and our Christian community are looking forward to this quincentennial commemoration of the abiding presence of the Father in our journey of faith.

with Basilica Del Santo Niño Library
Heeding the wise advice of St. Augustine of Hippo that in every house there should be a library (Possidius 31, 6,8), the Augustinian Friars of the Basilica put up a library in one of the corners of the convent. We don’t exactly know when this library was put up, but it is safe to surmise that it was established when the convent was constructed and completed in 1764.

Sto. Nino and the religiosity of Filipino seafarers
ATTY. DENNIS GORECHO January 19,2021
The Sto. Niño is venerated all over the country with annual festivals celebrated every last two weekends of January through special masses, dances and processions attracting millions of devotees and tourists.
I usually see some wearing a seafarer’s uniform, presumably owned by a family whose member is in the maritime profession. This is a reflection of the practice of most Filipino seafarers of bringing with them on board the vessel their religious beliefs, ideas and tradition.
Religion offers for the ordinary Filipino seafarers strength, hope and peace in relation with their daily work and social relationships on board the vessel.

“Hubo” Ritual at the end of the Sinulog Festival

A few days after the feast of the Sto. Niño de Cebu every Third Sunday of January, the so-called “Hubo” (a Cebuano term meaning “naked”) ritual takes place during the early morning celebration of the Holy Mass, marking the end of the Sinulog Festival in Cebu. Seen from the outside, it appears as a simple rite of undressing, bathing and redressing the image of the Holy Child. The icon is stripped of its elaborate festive garments, washed, and dressed with a simpler garb. Look this article as pdf
