MASS FOR CORONA. Associate Justice Estela Perlas Bernabe. Photo from sc.judiciary.gov.ph

MANILA, Philippines—An appointee of President Benigno Aquino III has sponsored Wednesday’s Octave Novena mass at the Supreme Court.

Associate Justice Estela Perlas Bernabe organized Wednesday’s Octave mass. The Octave Novena, which is believed to be the most powerful novena, has been organized by Marian devotees and employees of the Supreme Court.

The intentions for the Octave Novena are: for the Rule of Law to prevail, for truth and justice to prevail in the ongoing impeachment trial of the Chief Justice, for protection of the Chief Justice and his family and for the Chief Justice’s vindication.

The Octave mass will be for 8 days.

Aquino has appointed three associate justices at the Supreme Court—Bernabe, Maria Lourdes Sereno and Bienvenido Reyes. Reyes has also sponsored one of the 15 masses held for the Chief Justice in March this year.

Corona is set to testify before the Senate Impeachment Court on May 22.

Thanksgiving mass

Supreme Court employees will hold a Thanksgiving mass for the 2nd anniversary of Chief Justice Corona on Thursday.

Corona was appointed Chief Justice on May 17, 2010 by then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, who is now detained at the Veterans Memorial Medical Center facing several charges.

His appointment has been highly contested due to a constitutional prohibition against the President from making appointments two months before the election up to the end of her term.

However, on March 17, 2010, the high court upheld Arroyo’s right as incumbent president to appoint the Chief Justice. The high court decision underscored Section 4(1) of Article VIII of the Constitution as the more relevant provision, and that the 90-day period for the President to fill the vacancy in the Supreme Court is a special provision to establish a definite mandate for the President as the appointing power.

  • EdgarEdgar

    That’s a nice gesture from Bernabe. And good for Noynoy’s publicity, too. Whether or not Bernabe is sincere, only time can tell. There’s no mistaking however that Bernabe, together with the 2 other SC appointees of Noynoy, sincerely voted to grant Noynoy and his clan P10 billion as payment for the Luisita land distribution. Only they were not in the majority. But I still hope Bernabe is sincere, legally and spiritually. Because the magnanimous magistrate, the Crown himself, is ready to forgive and forget, and bring this country together and move this nation forward. Something we’ll never see in our petty and vindictive president.

    • gikiness

       maganda yang concept ng forgive and forget, basta ba isosoli ni Corona mga nakulimbat nya at ang property ng madre na inagaw nilang mag asawa!!!

    • gikiness

       siyempre, porke ba nag forgive and forget ay di na sya puedeng kasuhan.  Dapat pa ring kasuhan ang mag asawang Corona sa mga nakulimbat nilang 12 million dollars o in pesos 500 Million pesos o PhP 500,000,000

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EXFI4EUGM23PQ4FMQKLVH36OXI Jose

      A.) No, Bernabe did not vote ‘Noynoy and his clan’ to receive 10B.  She voted in favour of the legal opinion that deciding proper payment was not an SC matter and should be referred to the proper authority for a decision.  I am not familiar enough with the law to comment on whether or not that was correct.  Also, given that the President has divested himself of his Luisita shares, he would not have (and will not) receive a centavo of any payouts to the Cojuangco clan.  So you’re demonstrably wrong on two counts there.

      B.) OF COURSE Corona is ready to forgive and forget.  He’s the one being impeached.  If I were a thief that had used my position to illicitly earn millions of pesos I’d be quite happy if everyone forgot about all the pesky evidence against me too.

      C.) ‘The magnanimous magistrate’?  That’s disgusting.  Seriously.  You people try and portray him as some kind of crusader for judicial independence.  All you’re really supporting, in your petty vindictiveness, is keeping the judiciary under the thumb of GMA.  Wake up and smell the coffee.

    I don’t know what was PNoy’s criteria in appointing her ? Was it because JBC submitted nominees that are equally mediocre because Hermosisima controlled who gets the nomination ? Time for the overstaying Hermosisima to go and never renew him as representative of retired Justices. Of all retired Justices, why pick this questionable character in first place !

    • Concur_Dissent

      as usual the corona people misinterprets everything around them to suit their causes…”OCTAVE NOVENA” is essentially a novena that prays for “unity and harmony”…. It is considered one of the most powerful novena because it is not a “selfish” novena…whereas some novenas are offered for ones well being, like healing of a loved one, finding someone lost, deliverance from evil, prayers for success, etc…. this novena is centered around “CHRIST’S MAJOR TEACHING, WHICH IS LOVE YOUR ENEMIES”…there is no other religion out there that espouses loving people who hurt you or does not agree with you… OCTAVE NOVENA is the essence of CHRIST 2ND COMMANDMENT (1ST IS LOVE GOD AND THE 2ND IS LOVE YOUR NEGHBORS (NO DISTINCTION BETWEEN FRIENDS OR FOES)

      Back to corona….this novena is definitely not offered for corona’s acquittal, this I assure you…

  • Concur_Dissent

    I am not a lawyer nor is english my first language being a true blooded pinoy… I also believe that it is the juduciary, the branch of government that interprets the law… however, the whole issue about corona’s legallity to remain as CJ is simply not debatable because obviously, the supreme court committed an abuse of authority in upholding corona’s appointment….

    I believe that in compliance with a certain law, NO OTHER LAW SHOULD BE VIOLATED…. the supreme courts decision to comply with Section 4(1) of article VIII grossly violated Section 15 of article VII.  On the flip-side, it can not be said that if corona is not appointed, a constitutional provision will be violated….

    To put things in perspective:

    1.  The SC vacancy occured upon CJ Puno’s retirement on May 17

    2.  Under Section 4(1) Article VIII, this SC vacancy should be filled up by August 15 or 90 days upon retirement of CJ Puno (Between May 17 and August 15)

    3.  Under Section 15 Article VII, GMA should not make any appointment from March 10 to June 30 (two months before election up to the end of her term which is the end of June).

    4.  So, as any reasonable person can conclude, the appointment of corona “was not in violation” of Section 4(1) article VIII, but was “in violation” of Section 15 article VII….

    5.  If corona was not appointed, no constitutional provision “is violated”, not even Section 4(1) article VIII, because such vacancy can technically extend to August 15!  Therefore it is UNTENABLE to claim that corona had to be appointed to COMPLY with Section 4 (1)…. because if he was not appointed, there is still would not be any compliance issue….

    Simply put…. the majority of the members of the SC who voted for corona’s appointment did in fact “A CULPABLE VIOLATION OF THE CONSTITUTION”…

    6. BATTER UP!!

    • Concur_Dissent

      The SC said that section 4(1) article VIII was more relevant and so they complied with this provision… I say, judgement should be generally in harmony with the constitution and not make a judgement that uplifts the left hand but in so doing it cripples the right hand!!

    • Cerise David

      The Supreme Court also took into consideration the fact that it was election time and a Chief Justice needs to chair the Presidential Electoral Tribunal.

      Had the incumbent CJ retired some time other than that very inauspicious period,  nobody would have been able to fit it into a masterful grand conspiracy scheme and paint it with such vibrant political colors.

    • unknown_ni_most

      Art VIII Section 4(1) states that vacancy shall be filled within (not by) 90 days from the occurrence.  Therefore the president can appoint anytime between May 17 to Aug 15.  The constitution should be applied to any event not on specific event.  If we analyze the constitution, the prohibition in Art VII section 15 will start March 10 (2 months before election) to June 13 (president’s end of term) which is more than 90 days.  What if the vacancy happens on or before March 10?  Is the president not allowed to fill up the vacancy?  If he will not appoint the replacement, is he not violating Art VIII section 4(1)? If you Look at the next election (2016), The prohibition will start in March 9.  The number of days is increasing.  Again, if the vacancy happens on or before March 9, can he not appoint a replacement?

      • Concur_Dissent

        1.  did you notice that I had the article “or” in the construction of my sentence?  August 15th happened to be the 90th day from the vacancy occurence…I indicated the date so people can see when those 90 days are up… had the 90 days ended in aug 20th, I would have said the 20th…

        2.  The end of the president’s term is June 30th not the 13th.. therefore, from the date of vacancy May 17 to June 30th is not more than 90 days (the more so if we were to use your June 13 date)!  What are you talking about?  Surely, the vacancy did not occur from March 10 but only occured in May 17th the CJ Puno’s retirement date…analyze that again…

        3. Any appointment for vacancies between March 10 and the March 29th (or more than 90 days before the next president’s term but within the 2 month prohibition…), could be the “debatable issue” in as much as this may turn out as exceeding 90 days that the vacancy should be filled up……but any appointment after March 29th to June 29 is “totally illegal” and not even “debatable”

        4.  Granting that there existed a vacancy within the two months prior to the date of elections but more than 90 days before the new president’s term, Section 15 of Article VII provided for exception for “temporary appointments to executive positions when continued vacancies therein will prejudice public service or endanger public safety”.  At the very most, the outgoing president can only appoint “temporary” postions…..

        5.  In the above situation wherein the vacancy occured within the prohibition period but more than 90 days before the new presidents term begins, the ideal action of GMA was to temporarily appoint a new associate justice from the ranks of the short list submitted by the Judicial and Bar Council to complete the 15 members of the SC and appoint an acting chief justice among one of them until a permanent CJ is appointed by the incoming president… In this way, no provisions of the constitution is violated and this impeachment case would not have transpired…

        7.  Since the vacancy happened within 90 days of the incoming presidents term to start, and within the period prohibiting presidential appointments, GMA had no right to appoint anyone to a government position and the SC had no power to disobey and violate the provisions of the constitution…

      • unknown_ni_most

        I stand corrected on the date.  But my point is that it is more than 90 days.

        I was not talking about the specific vacancy created by the retirement of the chief justice.  I was asking what if the vacancy happened on or before March 10?

        You admitted that the appointment from March 10 to March 29 is debatable.  The SC debated and decided that the prohibition does not apply to the judiciary and the appointment is legal.  There is no provision in the constitution that allows the president to appoint temporary associate justice or acting chief justice. The constitution is very clear that any vacancy shall be filled within 90 days. Nobody said that the SC has the power to disobey the constitution.  But only the SC has the power to interpret the constitution, not you and not me.  That’s what the SC did in this case.  Why continue to bring up this issue?  You are like a broken record.

      • Concur_Dissent

        any appointment before March 10 is obviously legal…

        the SC debated on the May 17 appointment of corona…not on an appointment from march 10 to march 29…as I said before, appointments from march 10 to 29 is debatable but appointments from March 30 to June 29 is not debatable, corona’s appointment came in within this period and therefore is not even debatable and is blatantly illegal…

        Section 15 article VII clearly states “the President shall not make appointments, except temporary appointments to executive positions….” anong no provision? Hindi ba clear na pwede mag appoint pero “temporary” lamang. The constitution did not make any distinction kung judge ba yan o department head o ano pa man! ikaw pala…

      • unknown_ni_most

        You still miss the point. When the constitution was written, the authors never knew that the next CJ will retire on May 17. What if the CJ choose to retire on March 10? Is it illegal to appoint a replacement? As I’ve said the SC debated on it and made a decision.

        Read and understand the constitution carefully before making any assertion.  The judiciary is not part of executive.  They are independent from executive.  Get it?

Whether it is morales or carpio, I don’t care.  What I care is that the rule of law should be observed.  The SC has spoken and must be respected.  The SC is the sole interpreter of the constitution, period.

    Is there a kind of prayer that is powerful than the other? What The bible teaches is that
    “The LORD is far from the wicked. But he hears the prayer of the righteous” Pro 15:29

    The Power of prayer lies on the people praying. No matter what kind, type, style manner or mode of prayer, if the person praying is wicked God will not hear such prayer.

    Per SC manual, the priest is paid P5000 for each mass. Snacks are served too or lunch if “in due time hehehe. Good business for the church huh especially if CJ is acquitted as it will claim that the Octave novena is truly powerful.The SC of Corona just thrashed the time -honored tradition of the separation of the church and the state.
    The words from the street had it that a list of priests is given to other associate justices who are likely to be impeached so they can avail of the octave novena too! hehehe
    I guess the CBCP will not say a word as to the merit of corona testifying. Bad for their business I think. No wonder the church is veering from the traditional faith mass to Octave novena/mass.

      Luke 18:10-13

      “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.

      The Pharisee stood up and prayed about himself: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector.

      ‘I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’

      But
      the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to
      heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’

        Yung mga posters na self righteous ang mga Pharisees.

        Yung mga PNoy appointed SCJ and those praying the novena, for guidance, and support would be the tax collector.

        Those are the characters based in this article.

      • edleon

        Ibig po ba ninyong sabihin ay wala po sa dalawa si Corona?

      • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

        No.

        For that to happen, CJC would be found guilty, and him to ack that he was wrong and is sorry for it.

        Take things one at a time. Let the judges say he’s guilty then we can start revisiting this.

        2ndly, CJC might be the incidental object of this article. 1st person and 2nd person would be, as I compared it on my post previous this.

    The road to perdition is strewn with good intentions and, let me add, hypocritical prayers.

  • bgc4vrbtravels

    God hears the prayers of those who call upon him… in His own time and in accordance with His divine plan.  No one should judge the intentions of those who call upon Him — He makes the rain fall both on the just and the unjust!  If a group prays, let them be without sarcastic or cynical remarks, we should be tolerant of others.  The rule of charity is there whether you aare pro or against the CJ.  “By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”  Despite our differences, we can be friends and pray for what we need.  Praying with some urgency is felt by the friends of CJ Corona: they do not deserve abuse; only God is the judge of all.

    • Guest

      Not all prayers are heard. Read your Bible.
      Proverbs 28:9, He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.
      One of the laws of God is ” Thou shall not bear false witness”.

    Associate Justice Estela Perlas Bernabe organized Wednesday’s Octave mass.
    The Octave Novena, which is believed to be the most powerful novena,

    This goes to show that Chief Justice Corona and Supreme Court Justices are blessed above.
    They are guided by the Divine Providence to apply the Rule of Law and the Law of God to filipinos who are being slowly invaded by the misguided elements.

    God Bless the Supreme Court and the Justices.

        Your implied and insulted all the Justices of the Supreme Court. Both GMA and PNoy appointed as corrupt.

        “so how do you call those GMA-appointed justices who, like CJ, always favor their decisions to GMA?”

        People who decided a case based on merits.  If you are gonna accuse someone, might as well state your case, point by point. Exactly which case and which point of consideration within the decision you think was erroneous? You have read the case files, right?

        “if other justices are clean, then they won’t react to this message…”

  • noypisiTED

    Come on now, “pakikisama” is a powerful trait among the Filipinos. There even were times one’s sense of pakikisama goes out of bounds – to the point of being “over” (acting) na. And J. Bernabe’s “hosting” a mass or novena for Chief cook errr…justice Corona is no different. Though, modesty aside, as a Catholic myself, I find it increasingly distasteful that Catholic religious rites such as a holy mass are being used to project false piety by scoundrels – usually for show or PR purposes. Such that they lose their transcendental value and turns off a lot of the Christian faithful. All of a sudden you see a felon turning to the high Heavens for succor makes one’s stomach turn. 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E3CE56OQVPC4RPYD2NR4VD3SUE Bert

      then you do not exactly know the virtues that your catholic religion stands for…..it’s not about pakikisama, it’s about not being judgmental. Your religion teaches you about praying for the redemption of others, not just those whom you perceive to be good but most especially those you presume to be sinners.

      and by the way, how did you exactly know that the mass offered by bernabe, an appointee of pnoy, was used to project false piety or was for a show?

      i salute bernabe for the action, it shows that she’s more catholic than many nominal catholics….

  • pipsirho

    What should be publicized and news items are acts demonstrating probity, independence, competence, integrity, patriotism, public trust, honesty, and justice. Matters of prayers, novenas, and masses are more private acts, and better carried out without much fanfare. A person’s action, value system, and behavior stems from his spirituality. A person possesses probity, independence, competence, integrity, patriotism, public trust, honesty, and justice BECAUSE he has OFFERED prayers, novenas, and masses BEFOREHAND THAT HE MAY BE SO! One’s spirituality will provide the MORAL and ETHICAL MOORINGS to guide one’s public life, and NO CHARGES CAN STICK AGAINST SUCH A FOUNDATION. The malice of accusers will be unmasked in no time and the people will know because they see the MORAL and ETHICAL life of the accused. 

  • boshog

    these masses try to show a religious, devout and moral Corona.  Surely this hypocrisy in its highest.  What a fake..you really need divine intervention to cleanse your conscience.  Somehow your show of faith will mitigate the evil impression that majority of the people has of you.  Keep praying maybe this will help you change your evil ways.

  • okabato

    Are we getting a clue here of what the chief justice will say at the witness stand? Based on their novena petition, will Corona use the rule of law as his defense and that forcing him to open his dollar accounts will be against the law that gave him exclusive confidentiality regarding his accounts. But that will haunt him because he had declared publicly that he will open them in due time.

  • el_latigo

    God is just. One can pray all the so-called “powerful prayers or novenas” all he wants but God  will not let Himself be used and consort  with evil men and will always  let truth to prevail in the end. I have a very strong feeling that this guy will resign by Monday instead of letting himself be grilled on Tuesday. Will resignation then be construed as admission of guilt on his part? That my friends is the 10 errr, 12 million dollars pala question.

    I wondered why a Pnoy appointee sponsored an Octave Mass- known as the ” MOST POWERFUL NOVENA” .
    Just thinking could it be a sarcastic move for Corona, because he is in a very deep deep trouble and he needs a Very powerful Novena to somehow will help him. One of the purpose is to protect Corona, do they have a vision na malapit ng bugbugin ng taong bayan si Corona after nyang mag witness dahil kasula-sulasok ang mga testimony nya?
