Archdiocese of Lipa
After years of waiting and uncertainty, this season of Advent, the season of waiting, is yielding us an early Christmas gift—the return of the Bells of Balangiga. God has shown great favor to our Local Church and, by extension, to our country.

Fatherly Message to the Youth and Children of the Archdiocese of Lingayen Dagupan
Will no one relieve me of this meddlesome priest? (King Henry II) Message to the People of God by the Clergy of the Archdiocese of Lingayen Dagupan on June 12, 2018
They are killing our flock. They are killing us the shepherds. They are killing our faith. They are cursing our Church. They are killing God again as they did in Calvary.
No priest, and no human being for that matter, deserves to be killed with utter brutality, disrespect and impunity.
