It’s Palm Sunday and Holy Week is upon us.

Sadly. this year, we have not been able to produce what has become an annual tradition for us: the Historic Philippines Visita Iglesias.

Therefore, we are providing links to the 2015 versions of the devotions in Pilipino/Tagalog, Ilonggo/Hiligaynon and English. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we enjoyed producing them.

We’ve been absent a great deal over the past months…BUT…

Fergus March 2016 Yes, we have been absent more than not in the past several months due to a series of illnesses that have taken their toll on many family members, including myself. We, especially me, are well on the road to recovery and we are planning more interesting and thought provoking stories for the months to come, or as soon as the Docs give us to “GO Signal”.

That will not be before the National Election of May 9th here in Philippines. That’s when we expect to be off and running. Our first stories in the new series will appear starting at the beginning of June with reports on our annual trip back home to Canada and others we are currently researching…We here all hope to see you very soon!

Shamefully disobedient & defiant priest mocks his Archbishop

Absolutely correct! There’s a disobedient and defiant priest in Capiz Province, a Monseigneur, no less, who openly and shamefully defies instructions given him by  his Archbishop.

It all has to do with a the construction of a new Chapel on the actual site of the ancient ruins of the Old Augustinian Town of Aranguel which dates to the early 1700s.

The main problems are that Human Remains and other archaeologically significant materials were unearthed during the excavations for the foundations of the new Chapel in 2014.
