Fr. Antonio Ma. Rosales, OFM, former parish priest of Santuario de San Antonio, Forbes Park, has two new books:
“Baptism in the New Evangelization” and “Laughter without Borders.”
The first book reexamines the Sacrament of Baptism, its implications and consequences in living the values of discipleship, affecting all the areas of Christian life. Foreword is by Davao Archbishop Romulo G. Valles, new president of Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines.
“Laughter without Borders” is a collection of short stories, biographical sketches, pastoral notes and jokes.
The books can be found at the Catholic Book Center on the CBCP compound and the Arzobispado Bookstore in Intramuros and other places where Focolare has outlets; Forbes Park Parish bookshop, Makati; St. Pauls Bookstore in SM Mabolo; San Vicente Ferrer Parish Urgello in Cebu City; Christ the King College, Calbayog City, Samar; Carmelite Monastery; SFIC Retreat House, Catalonan Grande; Franciscan House, Lanang in Davao City. Proceeds will go to the Franciscan seminarians’ fund in Davao.
The San Lorenzo Ruiz Global Ministry on the 30th anniversary of the canonization of the first Filipino Saint made a pilgrimage to Nagasaki, Japan, where San Lorenzo was persecuted defending his faith. The group visited the 26 Martyrs Museum, where the statue of the Philippine martyr could be found, and Nakamachi church, which is dedicated to San Lorenzo.
