Re: Jubilee of Religious Life
My dear brother priests:
In the preparatory year for the golden jubilee of Lingayen Dagupan as a metropolitan archdiocese, the coming month of October has been assigned as the month for the Jubilee of Religious Life. In recognition of the important task that men and women in consecrated life have in the mission of the Church, we have organized and established the Association of Religious Men and Women in the Archdiocese of Lingayen Dagupan or ARMWALD. An Episcopal Vicar for Religious has likewise been appointed and he is Father Francisco Vargas, CM, parish priest of the Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Parish in David, Mangaldan.
To celebrate more fittingly the Jubilee of Religious Life in the month of October, the ad hoc committee proposes the following themes for the Sunday Masses in October in the entire archdiocese:
October 7, 2012:
LET US PRAISE AND THANK THE LORD FOR THE GENEROSITY OF ALD IN GIVING MEN AND WOMEN TO GOD THROUGH THE CONSECRATED LIFE. We can mention during the Mass some religious men and women who were members of the parish community.
October 14, 2012:
LET US PRAISE AND THANK THE LORD OF THE HARVEST FOR MAKING MEN AND WOMEN OF ALD AVAILABLE TO THE SERVICE OF THE PEOPLE OF GOD IN THE PHILIPPINES AND ALL OVER THE WORLD. Here we can also present some Pangasinense religious men and women who are working in foreign missions.
October 21, 2012:
LET US PRAISE AND THANK THE LORD FOR THE GIFT OF SERVANT LEADERSHIP AMONG THE CONGREGATIONS PRESENT IN AND IN COMMUNION WITH THE LOCAL CHURCH OF ALD FOLLOWING THE SPIRIT OF ICTHUS. We can take this opportunity to inform the Catholic faithful about the new parishes being administered by religious men as well as the other religious women in various apostolates.
October 28, 2012:
LET US PRAISE AND THANK THE LORD FOR GIVING YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN OF ALD THE OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE A RADICAL RESPONSE IN FAITH TO FOLLOW JESUS AS HIS DISCIPLES THROUGH CONSECRATED LIFE. The last Sunday may be a vocation campaign Sunday for religious life.
I entrust the Jubilee of Religious Life to your pastoral attention and fraternal prayers.

1 April 2012- Dagupan City. “This jubilee year is a year for remembering and beholding the greatness of the Lord. Indeed, every year, month and day since we were made a diocese is an epiphany of his goodness and bounty. Our thoughts return to the crib where the mother and her child were visited by the wise men: ‘They came into the house and saw the young child with Mary, his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Opening their treasures, they offered to him gifts: gold, frankincense, and myrrh. (Mt.2:11).’” (Archbishop Soc, Golden Year, Golden Offering, 14 February 2012).
The month of April (2012) is the JUBLEE of FREEDOM and MERCY. It is a celebration of God’s saving power and liberating mercy! As we enter Holy Week (1-7 April 2012) and proclaim the glorious resurrection of Jesus during Easter, we celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday, the Sunday after Easter. Nourished by the unfathomable mercy of God through the Sacraments of the Eucharist and Reconciliation, we bring the good news of God’s Mercy to the prisoners and those enslaved by addictions.
Proclaiming Freedom through Works of Mercy
‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ (Mt. 25, 34-40).
Together with the Ministry of Social Action (MISA), the works of mercy are celebrated once again following the parable of the kingdom by our Lord.
The Jubilee Celebration
The Month long Celebration shall have the following:
1. “Kumpisalan ng Bayan”. A celebration of God’s Mercy through the Sacrament of Reconciliation, the Sacrament of Mercy. The individual parishes shall hold communal celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The Vicariate Clergy will help in the hearing of confessions.
2. “Regalo na Panangasi.” A Celebration of Freedom and Mercy through the sharing of our material resources to the prisoners. We encourage our parishioners to share from their own wants what the prisoners need: slippers and shoes, soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste, mats, clothes, rice, etc). It is a celebration of one of the works of mercy (to visit the imprisoned) and a proclamation of our own freedom from selfishness to generosity.
3. Divine Mercy Sunday. Proclaimed by the Blessed Pope John Paul II, the Mercy Pope, as a feast for the universal church, it is celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter. The celebration of the feast has the following components:
· Novena to the Divine Mercy which will start on Good Friday.
· Celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, on or before the Feast of Divine Mercy.
· Celebration of the Eucharist and reception of Holy Communion, a homily on the Divine Mercy.
