Pope to Filipino community: pray with a child’s simplicity

VATICAN City, Nov. 21, 2013 (CNA/EWTN News)—Pope Francis met with the Filipino community of Rome today, encouraging them in the wake of their native country’s recent disaster to never tire of praying, even if the prayer is that of a child.

Referencing the typhoon that wreaked havoc in the Philippines, Pope Francis encouraged, “In these moments of sadness, let the power of this prayer be the most useful: ‘the prayer of why.’…And I also accompany you, with this ‘prayer of why.’”

“There are many things that we cannot understand. When children begin to grow, they don’t understand things and begin to ask questions of their father or mother,” the Pope explained to the group gathered in St. Peter’s Basilica on Nov. 21.

A child asks “one after another ‘why’s” but does not “wait for a response.” Rather, “the child in his insecurity needs his father and mother watch over him. He needs the eyes of his parents, he needs the heart of his parents,” the Pope continued.

As children of God, we must pray “the prayer of why,” especially in moments of difficulty, emphasized Pope Francis.

“In these moments of great suffering, don’t tire of saying, ‘Why?’ (Be) like children…and so attract the eyes of our Father for your people; draw the tenderness of the ‘dad of heaven’ upon yourselves. Be like the child when asking, ‘Why? Why?’”

Pope Francis had joined Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle of Manila and the Filipino community of Rome for a celebration of St. Pedro Calungsod, a Filipino catechist and martyr for the faith. The Pope blessed a mosaic icon of the young man who was proclaimed a saint by Benedict XVI last October.

Cardinal Tagle spoke of the struggles of the people in the Philippines, as well as their courage in the face of frightening circumstances. Pope Francis embraced the cardinal at the end of his remarks, assuring him of his “closeness and prayers.”

The honoring of St. Pedro Calungsod in St. Peter’s Basilica comes at a crucial time for the people of the Philippines, who are struggling to recover from the recent typhoon.

Lina Santos, who lives in Rome but is originally from the Philippines, told CNA that today’s gathering was “very very meaningful for us” because the honoring of a Filipino saint came “despite the difficulties we are encountering now.”

“Even though we have experienced disasters, there is still hope that we can gain again our hope,” she said.

Fr. Jan Limchua, a diocesan priest of Cebu, Philippines, expressed his gratitude to be in attendance at today’s gathering, noting that Calungsod’s witness is particularly important “because we are in the year of faith.”

Today’s event is one of the various ways of “honoring many many great examples of (people) living their faith in the midst of difficulties and in the midst of such harsh situations, like St. Pedro Calungsod,” Fr. Limchua told CNA in an interview on Nov. 21.

The young man was martyred not because he was a companion of the Jesuit missionaries, said Fr. Limchua, but because “he was a catechist, so he defended his faith, he even offered his life: he died before the Jesuit priest was killed because he offered his life…for God and the Church.”

St. Pedro Calungsod “was not a great preacher,” explained Fr. Limchua, but “he just served the priests in his own little way.” The result was his sanctity and martyrdom.

The life and witness of this simple catechist serves as an example of how any Christian “can make a great impact in the world of today.”

“So we are called in this way,” reflected Fr. Limcha, to imitate “that example of simplicity and holiness.”

The blessing of the mosaic was followed by a mass celebrated by Cardinal Tagle. (Kerri Lenartowick)

Tagle tells Yolanda survivors: There is hope in the midst of tragedy

Rising from the shambles caused by Super Typhoon Yolanda may be a struggle for some, but not for Filipinos who never forget to call on the Lord in times of hopelessness and despair.

Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle, in a series of reflections delivered during the Prayer Service and Holy Hour for the thousands of people who suffered the wrath of Super Typhoon Yolanda, urged the Filipino faithful to continuously seek the Lord as they begin to rebuild their lives.

“We have seen pictures of raging waters, houses, and trees. We have seen lives devastated (by this wrathful storm). Could we keep ourselves from worrying? Is the Lord really enough?” Tagle said in the vernacular at the San Fernando de Dilao Parish last Saturday.

“My brothers and sisters…the Lord listened because it is in Jesus’ heart that all of our pain and sufferings are stored…There is an answer to all of our prayers, there is an answer to all of the things we seek. Through the voice of Jesus, the Lord will listen,” he said.

Super Typhoon Yolanda wreaked havoc in Central Visayas last November 8, leaving thousands of Filipinos dead and millions affected.

As of Wednesday, the National Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) reported that the Yolanda death toll stood at 4,011, with 18,557 people injured and 1,602 still missing. The report also stated that 2,145,359 families or 9,996,065 people suffered from Yolanda’s battering.

Cry of the suffering

Tagle lifted the spirits of the suffering victims, noting that they are not alone in bearing their pain as the Lord voices out their fears and anxieties.

“Christ is not alone for when he cried, ‘My Lord, my Lord, why have you forsaken me?’ he was voicing out the cry of all mankind. Would the Lord listen to this? Would the cry of the suffering be heard?” he asked the laity.

“We believe that through Christ, those who seek the Lord here on Earth are given a voice…He gives a voice to all children and abused women, He gives a voice to those who are hungry and ignored, and to those who are suffering from the abuses of the greedy and selfish,” he said.

The senior prelate said that even if the incident might have affected the faith of the laity, they must remain strong and hopeful that a brighter future awaits them in their journey.

“As we see images of war, bloodshed, disputes, calamities, and hunger unto our television monitors, could we still sing and profess that God is love? Could we refrain ourselves from worrying?” he said.

“Don’t you feel pain whenever…you see the images of devastation? …Don’t you ask yourself if there is still any sense behind all the glorified singing?” Tagle said in Filipino.

“There is still hope in the midst of mourning. (Hope is present) as people seek the Lord, asking who and where He is.”

Part of one body

In times of different tragedies and calamities, Tagle said that it is through the unity and cooperation among His flock that the Lord’s presence is made alive.

“If others are having difficulty to see the face of Christ, maybe we should strive to be the face that they seek. If they could not hear the words of the Lord, maybe we should strive to be the voice that they long to hear. If the people could not feel the saving presence of the Lord, maybe it is through our sympathizing arms that His saving presence may be felt,” he said.

“So that those who are seeking the face of Christ may say that they have seen—even only through a shadow, that they have heard—even only through a silent whisper, and that they have felt—even only through the slightest touch, the presence of the Lord,” he said.

“We are all part of each other. The sickness of one part affects the entire body for we are not only part of each other. We are all part of the Body of Christ, which gives us the ability to be the face, voice, and touch of the Lord,” he said. (Jennifer Orillaza)

CBCP declares nine-day prayer, fund drive for typhoon victims

MANILA, Nov. 11, 2013—The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines declared a nationwide nine-day prayer and charity drive from November 11 to 19 for the victims of typhoon Yolanda and the earthquake in Central Philippines, which happened a few weeks ago.

Archbishop Jose Palma, CBCP president, in a circular said all Masses and prayers for the following nine days will be offered for the dead and the grieving families they left behind.

He also encouraged dioceses and parishes to conduct a charity fund collection within the same week and have the collection transmitted as soon as possible to the bishops in the calamity stricken provinces.

About 22 out of 86 archdioceses, dioceses and apostolic vicariates in the country were affected by “Yolanda” which packed 235 kilometer per hour sustained winds and gustiness of 275 kph.

The strongest cyclone to strike the Philippines in several decades, typhoon Yolanda has left in its wake massive destruction as it battered and flattened several towns and knocked down communications lines in many provinces in Central Philippines,

As government reports of death and missing come trickling in, some news reports pegged death toll and number of missing persons could reach to thousands even in Tacloban City alone because of the massive devastation. (CBCPNews)

Oratio Imperata for deliverance from calamities

Almighty Father, we raise our hearts to You in gratitude for the wonders of creation of which we are part, for Your providence in sustaining us in our needs, and for Your wisdom that guides the course of the universe.

We acknowledge our sins against You and the rest of creation.
We have not been good stewards of Nature.
We have confused Your command to subdue the earth.

The environment is made to suffer our wrongdoing, and now we reap the harvest of our abuse and indifference.
Global warming is upon us. Typhoons, floods, volcanic eruption, and other natural calamities occur in increasing number and intensity.

We turn to You, our loving Father, and beg forgiveness for our sins.
We ask that we, our loved ones and our hard earned possessions be spared from the threat of calamities, natural and man-made.
We beseech You to inspire us all to grow into responsible stewards of Your creation, and generous neighbors to those in need.
