Bishop Mylo performs rite of supplication for Tahanan ng Mabuting Pastol
by Conrad Alvez
His Most Reverend Mylo Hubert C. Vergara performed the Rite of Supplication for God’s blessing on the first pouring of concrete in the construction site of the Tahanan ng Mabuting Pastol last May 23, 2016 at the vicinity of Sta.Clara de Montefalco Parish, Caniogan, Pasig City.
The highlight of this activity were the Rite of Blessing, the Word of God and Bishop Mylo’s exhortation about last August 2015- Feast of Sta. Clara de Montefalco, when the whole diocese gathered to bury a time capsule, marking the start of the whole project. And then, after that, is the event of actual concrete pouring of cement that took place which symbolizes that all is set and nothing can stop the pursuit of this project.
Bishop Mylo thanked God and the whole diocese because this event marked the start of dreams of the diocese to have offices, Bahay Pari (retirement house for priests), and a diocesan formation center.
At the end of the rite was the blessing of St. Benedict’s medal.
“Kasi usually kapag me mga blessing di ba mga coins yung inihahagis natin. Ito naman ay naglagay tayo ng mga St. Benedict’s medal sa buong ground nung building bago buhusan ng concrete cement para asking for God’s protection and blessing through the intercession of St. Benedict,” explains Fr. Daniel Estacio, Director for Liturgical Affairs and Exorcism Ministry of the diocese. (When there is a blessing we usually throw coins. This time we placed St. Benedict’s medal on the whole ground of the building before pouring concrete cement asking for God’s protection and blessing through the intercession of St. Benedict).
Clergy, religious and laity of the diocese was in full attendance to witness the event.
