The Solemn Festivity in honor of the Queen of the Most Holy Rosary- Our Lady of Pacita is our parish community’s way of thanking the Omnipotent God for all the blessings He showered us throughout the years. Likewise, it is our vibrant and colorful gesture of gratefulness and of love for Our Blessed Lady for her constant intercession and maternal care. Aside from our religious merriment, we Filipinos found it too as an avenue for hospitality, generosity and team work – truly a very unique and splendid trait!
This year’s celebration is focused on the theme “Mary, Model of Great Faith”- a very timely subject for us Catholic Christians to reflect on. Many people nowadays stay away from the Church and have become lukewarm in their faith. These realities call for our collaborated efforts to bring them back to the fold and to keep the fire of faith burning in them. That is our mission – our pastoral commitment.
As we continue our journey of faith, let us always look on Mary as our complete example. May we be constantly united in faith as the beads of her Holy Rosary despite our diversity in origin, thoughts and voices.
Together with Rev. Fr. Mario P. Rivera, the Sto. Rosario Parish Pastoral Council and the 2012 Hermano and Hermana Mayor, I wish to convey to the devotees of Our Great Queen and to the selfless and benevolent people of Pacita my great commendations and cordial fiesta greetings.
Mabuhay ang Birhen! Mabuhay ang Sto. Rosario!
