MESSAGE FROM THE RECTOR FOR LA NAVAL FIESTA 2013
Mabuhay !

The devotion to Our Lady of the Rosary is one of the most significant and most historical in our country. It is not surprising then that the Shrine welcomes countless pilgrims and devotees from all over the world each year. Some come as tourists but most visit to experience the love of Jesus and Mary through the liturgical services that we celebrate as a community.

The theme for this year's La Naval de Manila celebration is : Maria : Pagninilay at Pagpapahayag ng Magandang Balita. This is in line with the yearly theme of the Dominican Order in preparation for the celebration of its 800th year of foundation in 2016. This theme is taken from Luke 1 :38 : Do unto me according to your Word.

Our celebration this year invites all of us to look up to Mary as the model of contemplation. She listened. She nourished God in her life. She was sent to be the mother of God. This is also our mission : to listen to the voice of God in the midst of all the noise that we encounter everyday, incarnate Jesus in our lives and bring him to others.

I pray that this year's celebration will deepen even more our devotion to Mary, our mother, Our Lady of the Rosary and strengthen our desire to proclaim her Son, Jesus, our Lord in our world today.

May God bless you ! Viva la Virgen !

 
Rev. Fr. Giuseppe Pietro V. Arsciwals, O.P.
Rector
