CITY OF MALOLOS-“Sa kabila ng mga trahedyang dinaranas ng lalawigan, walang ibang makasasagip sa atin kundi ang pagdarasal at sana mapalaganap natin ang kapangyarihan nito sa buong lalawigan.”

This was the statement of Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado during the visit of the Jubilee Cross where the history of the Diocese was engraved, currently making its rounds in different designated places in the province which symbolizes and marks the forthcoming celebration of the 50th founding anniversary of the Diocese of Malolos on March, 10 2012 under the tutelage of Bishop Jose F. Oliveros, D.D.

According to Fr. Rj Brion, chaplain of the Capitol in Bulacan, the said event will be celebrated throughout the year with its theme “Limangpung taon ng biyayang nagpapanibago at pananampalatayang di-magmamaliw”.

“Biyaya ng Diyos ang dahilan kung bakit nananatiling matatag at nagkakaisa ang sambayanan, ngunit bukod dito ay ang pagsalubong ng mga tao ng kanilang pananampalataya. Ang relasyon ng Diyos sa tao, at ang relasyon ng tao sa kapwa tao ang nagpapanatiling matatag sa ating pananampalataya,” said Fr. Brion.

Fr. Brion also explained what Jubilee is all about.

“Ang salitang jubilee ay nagmula sa salitang hebreo na yobel, ibig sabihin ay sungay ng lalaking tupa, at ang yobel ay hinihipan upang ipahayag sa mga tao ang isang malaking pagdiriwang ng pag-aalaala at naghuhudyat ng isang malaking kasayahan,” the chaplain said.

According to records, the jubilee year is celebrated every 25 years, 50 years, and 75 years upon the approval of Pope Clement VI so that more people during their time can celebrate the said event.

The one hundred days countdown of the celebration began last November 25 until March 11, 2012.

Employees of the Provincial Government of Bulacan participated in the vigil on the Jubilee Cross which stayed at the capitol from 8:00 in the morning until 4:00 in the afternoon yesterday.

“Sana magamit natin ang pagkakataong ito upang payabungin pa ang ating pananampalataya. Sa pamamagitan ng Krus na ito na nagpapaalala sa atin ng kasaysayan hindi lang ng simbahan, sapagkat ang kasaysayan ng simbahan ay kasaysayan ng ating lalawigan at tayo ay bahagi ng kasaysayan,” said Alvarado.

In the end, Fr. Brion said that the said activity is a proof that the church and the government are united and are partners in the implementation of activities for the common good. ###
