"Ours is a community that constantly seeks renewal. This renewal takes place when we constantly return to our source, the Word of God, the Eucharist, the daily presence of Christ, and the power of His Spirit in our lives. This gives our Church youthfulness."
That was the opening of the homily of Most. Rev. Honesto Ongtioco, DD, during the mass for the celebration of the 16th Anniversary of the Diocese of Cubao last August 28. He further emphasized that, "in order to keep moving forward, we should keep drawing water from the fountain of the Savior." As we are also celebrating the Year of the Youth, he mentioned the importance of the youth to the Church, because "their idealism can be a beacon of light to push us forward along the paths of the Gospel".
