Thought of Saint Augustine
Whoever seeks joy in himself will be sad, but whoever seeks joy in God will always be joyful because God is forever.
(In Io. Ev. XIV, 2)
I realize what I am and praise you for it. Come to my aid, that I may not stray from the way of salvation.
(Sermo 67, 9)
We dwell in the Lord when we are his body and he dwells in us when we are his temple.

Augustinian Province of Cebu celebrated 450 Kaplag Closing


The Province of Cebu through the 450 Kaplag Executive Committee celebrated the closing activities of the 450th anniversaries of the rediscovery (kaplag) of the image of the Child Jesus in Cebu and the presence of the Augustinian Order in the Philippines and the 50th year of the Santo Niño Church as a minor basilica. These events were held from April 17 to 30, 2016.

The triduum masses, on April 25-28, at the Santo Niño Pilgrim Center every 5:30pm were presided by Bishop Emilio Bataclan, emeritus auxiliary bishop of Cebu (April 25), Bishop Pablo Virgilio David, chair of the CBCP-Permanent Committee for the Cultural Heritage of the Church (April 26), and Bishop Julito Cortes, bishop of the Diocese of Dumaguete (April 27).

On the feast day, April 28, Fr. Alejandro Moral, O.S.A., Prior General of the Order of Saint Augustine, Rome, Italy, celebrated the Mass and delivered his homily. Augustinian priests from the different parts of the country, Diocesan clergy from the Archdiocese of Cebu and other religious priests concelebrated in the triduum masses and the Kaplag Fiesta Mass.

The Philippine festivals in honor of Santo Niño de Cebu highlighted the celebrations after the 5:30 pm feast day mass on April 28.

Also, the unveiling of the commemorative marker and the time capsule was done on April 28, 10am, at the Basilica del Santo Niño de Cebu grounds. The time capsule is suggested to be opened on the year 2065 during the celebration of the 500th Anniversary of Kaplag and the Augustinian Presence in the Philippines, and the 100th Anniversary of the Santo Niño Church as Basilica Minore.
