Gushing over Chopin in the key of C-ecile Licad

Your mantra for the week: "When I hear music, it is God speaking to me." A few years back, I made a comparison of the two versions of the Lord's Prayer---one directly translated from Aramaic to English and began with "O cosmic Birther of all radiance and vibration"; and the other a well-known version often referred to as "Our Father," translated from Aramaic to Greek to Latin to English and, in the process, ending up lost in translation. In IAMISM, the difference between a Cosmic Birther (CB) and a Father is that the word "father" gives the impression that God is likened to a human being with the supreme power and sits in judgment over humanity, deciding who will be saved or wh...Keep on reading: Gushing over Chopin in the key of C-ecile Licad.....»»

Pope relieves accused Indian bishop of duty: church officials

NEW DELHI, India--- Pope Francis has relieved from duty an Indian bishop accused by a nun of raping her, local church officials said Thursday, in a high-profile abuse case that sparked protests by clergy angry at police inaction. Bishop Franco Mulakkal, who has rejected the accusations, had written to the pope requesting he be temporarily relieved of his duties while an investigation was underway. "Having considered all circumstances the Holy Father has accepted the request of Bishop Mulakkal," the Catholic Bishops Conference of India said in a statement Thursday. Another bishop has been appointed temporarily in his stead, the statement read. The nun first accused Mulakkal in...Keep on reading: Pope relieves accused Indian bishop of duty: church officials.....»»

Feeling peckish about chicken

  Before anything else, I would like to greet Mommy and Daddy Tagle---the parents of Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle---a very happy anniversary as they celebrate 62 years of wedded bliss. I had the honor of visiting them last week for My Pope magazine, a glossy inspired by Pope Francis featuring all things Christian and promoting family values (available at 7-11 outlets - that's where I buy my copies). I shared with them a lovely meal of beef bourguignon and pasta by chef Jessie Sincioco. During the meal, I couldn't help but notice the concern of Cardinal Tagle's father for our driver's food. I guess compassion and concern for others really runs in the Tagle ...Keep on reading: Feeling peckish about chicken.....»»

What Filipino bishops can learn from the Pennsylvania abuse report

The Catholic Church, the Church I dearly love, once again found herself in an awfully big and serious trouble after the release of a grand jury report in Pennsylvania.   The 900-page report was stomach-turning chronicle of evil inflicted upon a thousand innocent people by some 300 priests. Not unlike a tsunami wiping out the Church's credibility,"the Holy Father understands well how much these crimes can shake the faith and the spirit of believers"('Shame and sorrow' -- Holy See responds to Pennsylvania report,CBCP News, August 17, 2018).   Truth hurts, really hurts. In 2010, Pope Benedict XVI acknowledged that"the greatest persecution of the Church doesn't come fro...Keep on reading: What Filipino bishops can learn from the Pennsylvania abuse report.....»»

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, 91: On a ‘pilgrimage toward Home’

"I do not know what awaits me. But I do know that... His light is stronger than all darkness; that the goodness of God is stronger than every evil in this world" (Benedict XVI, April 16, 2012).   I just finished reading a book titledJoseph and Chico: A Cat Recounts the Life of Pope Benedict XVI(2007), a story of the Bavarian pope from the point of view of feline Chico. The Holy Father was fond of cats and, as Archbishop of Munich (1977-1981), he was known to look afterstray cats in the neighborhood.   He was more than a bookworm and a scholar. His Holiness was also known as "the pope of aesthetics" for having reintroduced the papal garments used since the Roman ...Keep on reading: Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, 91: On a ‘pilgrimage toward Home’.....»»

Youth-oriented flick shines light on millennials

  Ace filmmaker Jose Javier Reyes is one of my fave interviewees because he never gives "show bizzy" answers. He tells it like it is, and I totally enjoy our off-the-record chats. If only we could write a book about the explosive stuff that both of us are privy to. Direk Joey is at the helm of Regal Entertainment's "Walwal," which opens on June 27. It is topbilled by heartthrobs Elmo Magalona, Jerome Ponce, Kiko Estrada and Donny Pangilinan. Walwal is a slang term derived from the phrase "walangpakialam" and its English translation is "to get wasted," from drinking too much booze. It reminds me of one of my fave quotes by Charles Baudelaire, which goes, "One should alwa...Keep on reading: Youth-oriented flick shines light on millennials.....»»

Gay rights advocates assail bishop’s ‘discriminatory’ comments vs LGBT community  

Gay rights advocates assailed on Saturday a Novaliches prelate after he reportedly discriminated against members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community when he said that they are committing sin every time they "give in to the temptation" of having sex with their partners and should seek the guidance of "spiritual directors." Ang Ladlad counsel and former vice chair Germaine Leonin said Novaliches Bishop Antonio Tobias' position shows that the kind of "spiritual guidance" he espouses is one of "intolerance and hate." In his Radio Veritas program "Hello Father 911," Tobias said that LGBT couples who are in a union are "immoral" and are therefore "barred from r...Keep on reading: Gay rights advocates assail bishop’s ‘discriminatory’ comments vs LGBT community  .....»»

Kevin Durant leads undermanned Warriors past Lakers 117-106

By Janie McCauley, Associated Press OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Kevin Durant scored 26 points and the injury-plagued Golden State Warriors pulled away in the fourth quarter to beat the Los Angeles Lakers 117-106 on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL tiem) while missing Stephen Curry on his 30th birthday and their two other All-Stars. Zaza Pachulia returned to the starting lineup for the first time since the All-Star break and had 10 points, 12 rebounds and five assists for the banged-up defending champions, who already had clinched a sixth straight playoff berth this week without playing. Coach Steve Kerr's non-traditional, late-season starting lineup of Durant, Quinn Cook, Nick Young, Kevon Looney and Pachulia worked as the Warriors won their eighth straight home game. Durant, who had averaged 38.7 points over his previous three games, shot 10-for-19 but missed six of his seven three-point tries. He added six assists and five rebounds. Looney matched his career-high with 11 points for Golden State, which had lost a rare two in a row. Julius Randle had 22 points and 10 rebounds before fouling out late as the Lakers were without starting forward Kyle Kuzma because of a sprained right ankle. Los Angeles had won two straight and 3-of-4. Isaiah Thomas added 20 points with five three-pointers and seven assists, while Lonzo Ball dished out 11 assists. Curry sat for a third straight game after re-injuring his troublesome right ankle early in a March 8 (Mar. 9, PHL time) win over the Spurs. He and Splash Brother Klay Thompson are both out for at least a four-game stretch and scheduled to be re-evaluated next week. Thompson has a fractured right thumb that will sideline him until March 22 (Mar. 23, PHL time). Ball's follow shot at the halftime buzzer off an off-balance missed three by Kentavious Caldwell-Pope sent the game into intermission tied at 55. Golden State then opened the third on a 21-7 run and made seven of its first eight shots without any points from Durant. The Warriors earned a seventh straight victory against the Lakers — Golden State's longest unbeaten run in the series — and 11th in a row in the series at Oracle Arena. TIP-INS Lakers: Kuzma tried to get ready for the game. "He came over earlier and tried to push through it a little bit, and he couldn't," coach Luke Walton said. "It isn't really worth it. He'll be out tonight and get treatment tomorrow. We'll take it day-by-day." ... Walton's Hall of Fame father, Bill, was on hand and son said: "Big Bill's here. He's always been a great support." ... Los Angeles hasn't won in Oakland since an OT victory Dec. 22, 2012. ... The Lakers shot 12-for-37 from deep. Warriors: On the bench, Curry was shown on the big screen late in the second quarter and wished a Happy Birthday. ... Thompson had played in 530 of a possible 543 regular-season games. ... Pachulia made his first start since the All-Star break after JaVale McGee had been playing in his place. ... The Warriors also reached the playoffs in six straight years from 1946-47 through 1951-52 while in Philadelphia. W'S INJURIES MOUNT Draymond Green was also out Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time) with soreness in his right shoulder. Backup center David West was sidelined for a fifth consecutive game with a cyst in his right arm but could return as soon as Friday (Saturday, PHL time). Rookie Chris Boucher was up from the G League Warriors and made his NBA debut with 1:19 left. With so many down, Kerr wanted his healthy players to be loose and let it fly. "With Klay and Steph out, what's that, about 75 shots that are not going to be available on most nights that are suddenly there?" he said. UP NEXT Lakers: Host Miami on Friday (Saturday, PHL time). Warriors: Host Kings on Friday (Saturday, PHL time)......»»
