A light for the Nations
‘I will make you light for the nations…’ (Is 49:6) is the theme that has accompanied the first batch of the Missionary Married Couples in the Philippines for the last nine (9) years of their formation as Missionary Couples. Indeed, they have carried this out in their missionary vocation being married couples, parents both biological and spiritual, in all their frailties and weaknesses trying to be faithful to the call of the Lord to love with their all.
Last Saturday November 7, 2020 (11/7) was like Seven-Eleven (7/11) that is open to serve everyone, as three (3) couples from the Missionary Married Couples Branch in the Philippines renewed their temporal bonds for another two years of service to God and the Verbum Dei Missionary Fraternity. The couples who renewed their bonds were Regner & Mae Paguia, Yoyoy & Lucy Rama and Bimbo & Cookie Abrio. It was a very simple and heartfelt celebration officiated by Fr. Jeff Singzon, a Calabrian priest, attended by the couples’ children and family, and together through Zoom with the ever supportive Misionero, Misionera and Married Couple missionaries and other members of the Verbum Dei family.
The bonds of the couples was received virtually by the General Responsible of the Missionary Married Couples branch, Poncho and Adriana Martinez, who gave a tearful and hopeful message to the couples. The ceremony was formally closed by a message of gratitude delivered by Yoyoy and Lucy Rama recognizing how God has been working and forming each couple to be faithful and grateful, also recognized were the concrete supports received from their respective families, communities and friends. Praying for more fruitful years ahead as the couples continue collaborating and partaking in the work that God has entrusted to them.
