FAMILY CELEBRATIONS

TRIBUTE TO THE LATE JUDGE EVARISTO L. ORTEGA

We are called to be lamp to others. How can one be a lamp to others?

First, to let man know the purpose why God created Him. We know from our Catechism class, that God created us to know, love and serve Him in this world and finally be with Him in heaven. Second, to bring the Scripture (written word of God) to man.

Today we are very privileged to have with us men and women who through their God-given talents, gifts and good deeds are a lamp to others.

Most Rev. Artemio Rillera, the beloved bishop of La Union. Abbot Santos Rabang, head of the catechetical ministry of the Archdiocese of Nueva Segovia, Ilocos Sur;

Fr. Francis Lucas, president of the Catholic Media Network who anchors daily at 6 a.m. a program bringing news from all CMN radio stations in the Philippines;

Sr. Erlinda So, president of Signis who is very supportive to DZUL Broadcasting; and

Pura Sumangil, of the Concern Citizen of Abra for Good Government.

We twins dream of activities to give praise to God and we have complete trust in Him that such dreams come to reality.

On the feast of St. Therese we went to mass then proceeded to Arliver Export Corporation, in Manila to pick up the statue of St. Teresa of Avila.

The angels carry out God’s Will. With childlike faith we know that God intended us to wait at the Arliver’s showroom full of their angel products to give us company. We had to wait from 7 am to 7 pm. due to the color coding of vehicles.

At one point, Luz and I had a good laugh when Luz started dancing while holding two angels. I captured such grace-filled moments with her cell phone video. I smiled when later I read that one Christmas; St. John of the Cross danced and cradled the little Jesus in his arms saying, “My spirit is like a child dancing in His Father’s arms!

We are happy for your presence this afternoon. We too want to be a lamp to others. DZUL TV Maria would serve two purposes: Education, providing the venue for the Communication Arts students for their practicum and Evangelization for the community. We will be happy for whatever God will give as its fruits, happy with the thought of what Jesus said on the parable of the Lost Sheep_

I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people, who need no repentance. 
May we now have the unveiling of the statue?
