‘Be transformed
from glory to glory'
Bishop of Bacolod

These most sacred days of the year are celebrations of remembering and beholding. St. Paul in his letter to the Ephesians bids us to be “rooted and grounded in love…that we may have strength to comprehend with all the holy ones, what is the breadth and length and height and depth of the Love of Christ.” (cf. Eph. 3:18-19)

As LOVE takes center stage, I exhort everyone to a brand of observance that brings us to an intense experience of being eternally loved. Our manner of celebration thus, should not merely be ceremonial, ritualistic and formalistic but with increasing devotion, we yearn deeply to be captivated by a LOVE that never fails to surprise us.

Finally, let us not lose sight of the truth that Lent and Holy Week is a joyful season. As it were, we are to celebrate the feast with “the joy of minds made pure” (cf. LENT Preface 1). This is a resounding invitation to rejoice, for indeed, “with the Lord there is mercy and fullness of redemption” (cf. Ps. 130:7). moremoremore
