MANILA, Philippines — The Duterte family seems to be destined to lead the people. Like Moses. Digong, Sara, Paolo, Baste.
And like Moses, the Dutertes were chosen by God.
This was recently confirmed by the Davao City Mayor when she said that God has spoken to her and has chosen her to run for the Presidency in 2022 when her father ends his 6-year term.
The Adobo Chrinicles caught up with Sara on a plane from Manila to Davao and we asked her if her God was a Christian God.
Her reply: “I believe so. His name is Pastor Apollo Quiboloy.”
Quiboloy is an international evangelist and founder of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ church —the same Quiboloy who said God gave the Presidency to Rodrigo Duterte.
On a silver platter, or on a tablet of stone?
BAGUI0 CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Baguio Bureau) – Forget about the KAPA Ministry investment scheme, or the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Manila’s rich portfolios in the stock market. The Archdiocese of Baguio has found a better strategy to raise the money needed for its evangelization program.
Concerned that the Sunday basket collection seems to be on a steep decline, the Baguio Archdiocese has come up with a novel idea to boost its fundraising efforts —sell and deliver Holy Water to the city’s devout Catholics.
Is the Summer Capital of the Philippines about to become the Catholic Capital? Not just for the sprinkling of Holy Water, but bathing in it.
God bless, as Filipinos like to say.
DAGUPAN CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Dagupan Bureau) – Former Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) President Socrates Villegas has vehemently denied involvement in any plot to overthrow the government of President Rodrigo Duterte.
In a signed statement, Villegas denied being at a meeting on December 12, 2018 with the plotters, saying he was delivering a homily at the first mass of a newly-ordained priest friend.
”I have no capacity to be in two places at the same time,” he declared.
But a teaching by the Catholic Church could incriminate Villegas and dispute his claim.
The teaching: “God is everywhere.”
Not just in two places at the same time. Everywhere.
