Parochial Administrator's Christmas Message
Dear brothers, sisters, parishioners, pilgrims and devotees of St. Peregrine,
“Today our Savior is born; let us rejoice. Sadness should have no place on the birthday of life. And so at the birth of our Lord the angels sing in joy: Glory to God in the highest, and they proclaim peace to his people on earth as they see the heavenly Jerusalem being built from all the nations of the world. When the angels on high are so exultant at this marvelous work of God’s goodness, what joy it is.” (From a sermon by Saint Leo the Great, pope: Sermo 1 in Nativitate Domini, 1-3: PI, 54, 190-193)
Christmas is the celebration about our Lord Jesus Christ, Word-made-flesh. He is the image of the loving and merciful God.
Christmas Season starts today. It is our commemoration of the birth of the Messiah, the Savior of this world, God-made-flesh, Emmanuel, Christ the Lord; it is also a time in which we must welcome Him in glory. Yes! We are in a joyful season, a season of faith, hope, and love.
We as Christians must be rooted in the love of God and be bonded in one heart and one mind as one family. In this Christmas season let us cherish our oneness and hospitality with one another. We must be proud yet humbly accept one another. To be humble is to let God be the very center of our lives. It is a way of life in which love bonds us by encouraging each other and always on the side of truth. From this, we are protecting each other’s reputation and dignity as God’s creation in His image and likeness. As St. Leo the Great beautifully explains our joyful participation and dignity as Catholics in Gods’s saving act in Jesus: “Christian, remember your dignity, and now that you share in God’s own nature, do not return by sin to your former base condition. Bear in mind who is your head and of whose body you are a member. Do not forget that you have been rescued from the power of darkness and brought into the light of God’s kingdom.”
May the holy child, God-made-flesh be with us always and everyday in our lives as we start this Year of the Youth. God bless you all!

BLESSED JAMES DA VILLA, ALMSGIVER
Blessed James was born in Citta’ della Pieve, in central Italy, about 1270. trained in law, he became a defender of the poor and oppressed. At his own expense he restored a church and hospice outside the gate of Vecciano, where he cared for the poor and sick with great love.
When in 1304 James defended the rights of the poor he incurred the hatred of a powerful man who then had him killed. The townspeople gave him the title of “Almsgiver”, and in 1806, Pope Pius VII approved his cult.
January 20, 2019 ~ Jasper Christian Gambito/ St. Peregrine Laziosi Diocesan Shrine. Today, the Philippine Church celebrates the Feast of the Child Jesus, also known as the Sto. Niño. Devotion to the Child Jesus in our country started more than three centuries ago when the Spaniards introduced Christianity to our ancestors. Started by the Augustinian friars in Cebu, devotion to the Sto. Niño spread throughout the Philippine archipelago to a point that in almost all of the diocese in our country, there is a parish named after the Child Jesus.
