Buod ng Piyesta

Ni Rudy A. Arizala
Ika 25 ng Abril 2014

Sa ikadalwampo’t lima
Araw, buwang itinakda
Kapistahan ng Infanta
Maraming nababahala
Ang piyesta hindi na gaya
Nang sila’y mga bata pa
May komedya, magpeperya
Beto-beto, karerang daga
May gulaman at lemonada
Pamatid-uhaw ng balana
At taong mamimiyesta
Sana ay may prosesyon pa
Sa buong bayan ng Infanta
Alay kay San Markos na misa
Patron ng bayang Infanta
Sana ay meron pang nasimba
Dumadalangin sa kanya
Papasalamat sa biyaya
Sa mga aning masagana
Bukirin, dagat at aplaya
Ito ang buod ng piyesta
Pasalamat sa Lumikha
At di lamang pagsasaya
Ngunit lubos na pagsamba
Pagtitiwala kay Bathala!
Wakas

Mulling Pagkabuhay

Ni Rudy A. Arizala
20 April 2014

Kristong sa krus ay nabayubay
Tinakasan na ng kanyang buhay
Nang mag-iikatlong araw
At ang kanyang libing dinalaw
Mga naulilang alagad
Ay walang bankay na natanaw
Si Magdalenang tumatangis
Ay nagtanong at naghahanap:
“Ang maestro, dinala saan?”
“Maria!”, narinig na tinig.
“Rabboni!”, kay Mariang bigkas.
Kay Hesukristong kasagutan;
“Bago ako umakyat-langit
Ako ay huwag mong salangin,
Ngunit ibalita sa tanan
Aking muling pagkabuhay,”
Ibinalita nga kaagad
Ni Magdalena ang tagubilin
Sa kanyang mga kasamahan
Kay Kristong muling pagkabuhay.
Lahat tayo dapat magdiwang!

Ode to Gabriel Garcia Marquez

by Rudy A. Arizala
18 April 2014

Gabriel G. Marquez rest now in peace
Author “Cien Anos de Soledad”
Biography of Macondo village
Remembrance of a fictional past
In the annals of colonial rule
Entrapped by own legends, tradition
Liberate hopefully by vision
Macondo’s city glass of mirrors
A fiction of enslaved nation
Really lived by the Buendia clan
Quixotec dream of earth paradise
Under imperial rule and belief
Ends in a tragic forgetfulness

April 16, 2014

Pagninilay

Ni Rudy A. Arizala
18 Abril 2014

Anak ng Diyos nabayubay
Sa matigas krus na kahoy
“Ama, bakit binayaan?”
Ang Kanyang daing at taghoy.
Langit at lupa nagdilim
Lumindol, biglang naglag-im
Bago takasan ng buhay
Sa mundo ay inialay
Tubusin sa kasalanan
Ang buong sangkatauhan.
Dahil sa Diyos pagmamahal
Tanging anak ibinigay
Sa Krus ng kamatayan
Upang magmuling mabuhay
Sa piling Niya sa langit
Buhay na walang hanggan!
Wakas

Polillians raising funds for St. Joseph Church Bell Tower

By Mila Glodava

A number of my former students at Mt. Carmel High School in Polillo, Quezon, have taken the lead in raising funds for the repair of the Bell Tower of St. Joseph Church, which was built by the Carmelite Fathers more than 60 years ago.
image.jpg

Below are some details for the project.

Project Title: Construction of the Bell Tower of St. Joseph Church in Polillo, Quezon
Projected Amount of Construction: $30,000 or 1.3 million pesos
Projected schedule of completion of construction: September 2014
Project Rationale: St. Joseph Church was built more than six decades ago, and has suffered exposure to heat, typhoons, and seawater splashes during that time. Noticeable cracks have become a concern for parish leaders and parishioners. In addition, they are concerned of the unusual vibration on the bell tower every time the bell was hit. More importantly, the tower could collapse and hurt people.

Given the age of the structure and its existing problems, LD Llacuna Engineering and Supply recommended solutions to repair said tower, which would also conform with current building codes.

Fund campaign to date: 284,680 pesos or $6,470 in pledges and paid donations have been raised in the Philippines.
Lilibeth Encina 10,000 pesos
Yolanda Pamintuan 5,000 pesos
Rosella Tena Borlongan 15,000 pesos
Rosadiasanta Flores 10,000 pesos
Alan Salvoza 10,000
Elma Teodora Bonjan 10,000 pesos
Ofelia Santos 5,000 pesos
Marissa Monte 10,000 pesos
Anonymous 25,0000 pesos
Randy Rutaquio 25,000 pesos
Alger Mopera 25,000 pesos
Mr. & Mrs. Mario Espiritu Jr. 25,000 pesos
Mr. & Mrs. Erwin Barnes 10,000 pesos
Mary Ellorin 5,280 pesos

Mr. & Mrs. Bayani Baylon 3,000 pesos
Lucille Encina 4,400 pesos

Kevin Eddrian Magistrado Carino 10,000 pesos
Eleanor Lat 5,000 pesos
Shirley Diasanta Rosas 5,000 pesos
Sheila Marei Armada Quilla 2,000 pesos

If interested in a tax-deductible donation to this cause, please send your donation to: Metro Infanta Foundation, 7350 Braun Way, Arvada, CO 80005. Of course, those who wish to send their donation directly to the Philippines, you may do so, but keep in mind that you cannot take your donation as a tax deduction. Please check with your tax lawyer or accountant regarding tax deductions.
