Last Sunday we observed the Feast of the Epiphany, the Manifestation of the Lord, first to the shepherds watching their flocks in the fields, then to the Magi, the Three Wise Men of the East, the Magi earlier referred to as the Three Kings. A feast that traditionally ended the Christmas season, and the season [...]
Whether or not it gains support from the Cebu City Council, the semi-privatization of the Cebu City Medical Center is worth a serious look.

“AM I still on earth or am I in a movie set?” Tess thought to herself as she surveyed the surreal ground before her – a wide expanse of broken trees, twisted metals, splintered houses and dark debris, against the backdrop of a bruised brown earth. Destruction and the stench of death was everywhere. Several ships had been driven inland perched on unlikely ground. A drive down the road from Tacloban to Palo now offered an unobstructed view of the sea, something unheard of before as densely-packed houses had blocked the view.

The recent pronouncement by Cebu City Vice-Mayor Edgar Labella to pass an ordinance to pedestrianize the section of Juan Luna street hugging the epistle side of the Basilica Minore del Sto. Niño is something that should be supported and seriously looked into.
The Fiesta Señor, Cebu’s annual feast in honor of the Holy Child Jesus, begins at dawn tomorrow with a “Walk With Jesus” procession from the Fuente Osmeña Circle to the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño.

How beautiful they looked!
It’s barely a week into 2014 and already the Aquino administration which prides itself on its campaign against corruption is faced with a new controversy about alleged overpricing and substandard construction of shelters for supertyphoon Yolanda victims. The Inquirer report detailed many specifications set by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) that were [...]

Ning panahon ni Rihanna ug Katy Perry, daw makatawa kita nga na-ban kining kanta nga “Wake-up, little Susie” sa radio niadto. Kabahin ra gud kini sa duha ka batan-ong manag uyab nga nakatulog sulod sa sinehan. Dihang nakamata na ang lalake iyang gipukaw ang babaye nga si Susie. Iyang gipangutana si Susie kun unsay [...]

Mad is he?” King George II once snarled about one of his aides. “Then, I hope he’ll bite some of my generals.” It would also be daft if any official here tried to confiscate Korans from Filipino Muslims. Both law and practice buttress liberty of faith. The exact opposite unreels in Malaysia. The Islamic Religious [...]

Recently four universities decided to work for the transfer of the opening of classes to September. These are Ateneo de Manila University, University of the Philippines, De La Salle University and the University of Santo Tomas.

The recent Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey revealed that 94 percent of Filipinos welcome the New Year with enormous hope rather than fear, and if I may add, amid the challenges we face (http://www.sws.org.ph/pr20131230.htm). This confirms what we know—that we are basically an optimistic lot. It is interesting to observe that in comparison to the [...]
Cebu Gov. Hilario Davide III is correct in saying that repair of the Cebu International Convention Center (CICC) needs to be done posthaste. The center will be used in the meeting of world leaders in the 2015 Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) summit and of Catholic delegates to the 2016 International Eucharistic Congress (IEC) The [...]
