Feast For The Faithful

For those who are not devotees, it may be difficult to understand the Feast of the Black Nazarene, where hundreds of thousands of faithful swarm around the image of the Nazareno trying to get a hold of the rope that pulls the andas or carriage through the streets of Manila; throwing their towels up to have them blessed; and ultimately trampling over each other to climb up and caress the Black Nazarene’s face......»»

Tagle to Catholic faithful: Know how to love and learn meaning of suffering

    "People who love but are afraid of suffering do not know how to love." This was the statement of Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle as he led the Feast Day Mass of the Blessed Justo Takayama Ukon, who was exiled from Nagasaki to Manila in 1614 amid persecution of Christians in Japan. Ukon, who was a Japanese Roman Catholic feudal lord as well as a samurai, faced hostility against his faith in his homeland after a warlord ordered the expulsion of all Christian missionaries and ordered all others to renounce their faith. However, Ukon was defiant as he refused to give in to anti-religious sentiments, saying that he would rather give up everything...Keep on reading: Tagle to Catholic faithful: Know how to love and learn meaning of suffering.....»»

A feast of him

"Do you really like eating this? Gusto mo ba talaga 'yung lasa?" I asked while I dipped the sizzling beef slice into the cheese sauce. "Hmmm, sakto lang," he said. "I just go here because I like seeing you happy." It has been like this for eight years. Over that course, I often have the final say in everything -- what we would eat, what you would buy, where we would go, when we would meet. Almost all the whys and hows of our relationship are based on him waiting for me to decide on things. I sometimes give him answers but most of the time, I keep him guessing. And I never even heard him complain, not once, never. I have spent about one-third of my life with him yet my intere...Keep on reading: A feast of him.....»»

Trump congratulates Clemson for its perfect season with fast food

By Laurie Kellman, Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump paid tribute to college football champion Clemson for winning the national championship at a White House ceremony Monday evening. Trump said he even paid for their meal of "American fast food" because of the partial government shutdown. He did not disclose the tab. "We went off and we ordered American fast food, paid for by me. Lots of hamburgers, lots of pizza," Trump said after returning to the White House from a trip to New Orleans. "I think they'd like it better than anything we could give." "We have some very large people that like eating, so I think we're going to have a little fun," said the president, a fast food-lover himself. Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said much of the staff that works in the White House residence has been furloughed due to the shutdown, "so the president is personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone's favorite fast foods." An impressive — and highly unusual for the White House — smorgasbord greeted the players in the East Room. Silver trays held stacks of wrapped burgers from Wendy's and boxed burgers from McDonald's, including Big Macs. White House paper cups bearing the presidential seal held the fries. He was serious. pic.twitter.com/fD3oPmZ0kg— Taylor Mason (@taylomason) January 14, 2019 Better pics of the feast 🕯🍔 🍟 pic.twitter.com/mKiFZ7xUjz— Taylor Mason (@taylomason) January 14, 2019 Pizzas, some topped with olives and tomatoes, also were on the menu. Silver bowls held the condiments and stacks of white china plates sat nearby. The Clemson team's visit is its second since Trump took office. The Tigers last visited in June 2017 after their championship run the previous season. Clemson coach Dabo Swinney has nominated this season's undefeated Tigers as the best college team ever. Trump calls them a "great team, an unbelievable team." Trump has routinely sparred with professional athletes during his two years in office. College football has managed to avoid such political controversies, with last year's champion Alabama also visiting the White House......»»
