fullsizeoutput_aa

The National Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady of Fatima will visit Holy Trinity Church on Thursday, July 13, 2017, and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be celebrated at 6:30pm by Fr Sebastian Vettickal, C.M.I. For those who are not from this parish, the exact address is 1292 W. Santa Cruz Street, San Pedro, CA 90732. Tel 310-648-6535.

After the Mass, there will be a Rosary Procession in the church grounds, and when the Pilgrim statue returns to the altar, there will be an Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Veneration of Relics of the newly canonized saints, Sts. Jacinta and Francisco Marto, the two children of Fatima.

There will also be an Investiture of the Brown Scapular for devotees who have not gone through the Investiture before. The Brown Scapular is a powerful sacramental and wearing it is a form of consecration to the Blessed Mother. The Scapular has been referred to as the Lady’s Mantle and a great protection during these trying and stressful times.

For the 100th Anniversary of the Apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima, Pope Francis had announced that a plenary indulgence will be granted throughout the entire anniversary year, from November 27, 2016 to November 26, 2017. To avail of the indulgence, please visit this site:

July 13, 2017 is the Third Apparition of our Lady to the three children of Fatima and this is significant because it is during this Apparition when our Lady affirmed to the world the reality of the existence of hell by showing visions of it to the young children.The other dates of the Apparitions, from May 13 to October 13 are also marked in different parishes around Southern California

Third Apparition of Our Lady: On July 13 1917 they recited the rosary with the crowd, they saw the usual reflex of light and then the Lady on the holmoak. Lucy asked: “What do you want from me?” She answered: “That you come the 13th of the next month, that you continue to recite the Rosary every day to our Lady of the Rosary to obtain peace in the world and the end of the war, because only She will be able to aid you.” Lucy said ” I want to ask you to tell us who you are, and to make a miracle for the crowd to believe that you appear.” She Answered: “you continue to come here. In october I will tell you who I am, that which I want, and I will do a miracle that all can see and believe. Sacrifice yourselves for sinners, and say often this prayer, especially during any sacrifice: “O my Jesus, I offer this for love of Thee, for the conversion of poor sinners, and in reparation for all the sins commited against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”. As she spoke these words, Our lady stretched out her hands, and bright rays came forth which seemed to penetrate into the earth. All at once the ground vanished, and the children saw Hell, frightened they lifted their eyes to the Lady who told them:”You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save future souls God wishes to establish in the world the devotion to My Immaculate Heart. If people do what I tell you, many souls will be saved.” Then She said:” If my requests are granted, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not, she will scatter her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecution of the Church. The good will be martyed, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be destroyed…But in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, Russia will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world”. “Do you want to learn a prayer?” the vision asked, “Yes we do!” the children responded. “When you recite the Rosary, say at the end of each decade: Oh My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the

fires of hell, and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Your Mercy.” For more info regarding the other Apparitions, visit: http://www.theholyrosary.org/

New Art Gallery Set to Open Featuring Contemporary Philippine and Filipino American Art and Artists
There will be a Grand Opening and Reception on June 24, 2017
To feature compelling art done by Filipino American artists in the greater LA region, Linda Nietes-Little has decided to open an art gallery adjacent to her Philippine Expressions Bookshop which is located on Suite 105 of the beautiful vintage building called “The Arcade.” Philippine-born and raised artist, and celebrated muralist Eliseo Art Silva will be the featured artist for this grand opening of the art gallery.
For the inaugural exhibition, titled: “DISRUPTIONS: The Art of Eliseo Art Silva”, 20 art works included embraces sparring ideas and intentionally disrupts the expected to bring attention to new ideas or to begin conversations. As an artist of over 100 public works under his name from the US east coast and west coast; and, in his own studio practice, the artist strives to bring the audience to situations to rethink and disrupt in order to energize. His signature work is the 150 ft.-long and 30 ft.- high Filipinotown Mural of LA (1994) which was recently recognized as one of the “20 Iconic Murals of Los Angeles” by LA Weekly. The new paintings, mixed media pieces and drawings featured in the show is an extension of his practice in public art which reconciles the history of his lineage with the history of painting. He attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine, received a BFA at Otis College of Art and Design and an MFA at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) under the auspices of the pioneering great abstract expressionist Grace Hartigan and resident MICA art critic Dominique Nahas.
This new space for contemporary Filipino art in Southern California was named after the PINTADOS (the painted people)- the name designated by early Spanish colonizers to the early inhabitants of the Philippines. The early Filipinos “painted” their bodies all over with elaborate tattoos and exquisite gold ornaments, thus the play of words also brings attention to the largely unknown and unchartered yet highly developed and advanced Philippine civilization; which was also known as: the 600 years of Indianized Kingdoms in the Philippines (900 AD-1565).
PINTA (paint) and DOS (second or two) also references the two walls allotted for art in the new gallery; and the fact that the new space also functions as a twin or annex of the Philippine Expressions Bookshop.
About Philippine Expressions Bookshop:
Established in 1984, Philippine Expressions Bookshop blazed the trail in the US in promoting Philippine books written in English and Pilipino for all ages. Filipiniana specialist and founder Linda Nietes-Little dedicated the bookshop to Americans of Filipino heritage who are searching for their roots. 2017 marks thirty-three years of service to the community. This new San Pedro bookshop was Blessed on on October 1, 2016 and formally inaugurated on October 14, 2016.

HOW HISPANIC ARE THE FILIPINOS
OF TODAY?
by Dr. John (Jody) Blanco

He will share common colonial roots of Philippine
and Mexican Culture. His research interests concern
the colonial roots of globalization between the
16th-19th centuries. The contexts that inspire this
investigation range from the Spanish empire in the
Americas and the Philippines, to the spread of
Christianity in the modern period, to the philosophy
of modernity and Eurocentrism, comparative forms
of imperialism and anti-colonial struggles, and the
legal, religious, and racial dilemmas and
contradictions of post-colonial societies and states.
Jody’s courses at UC – San Diego engage with these
themes in and through the study of Philippine, Latin
American, Caribbean, and US minority literatures
and cultures (religious, political, and artistic). Jody
received his BA (with honors) from Arts and Ideas in
the Residential College at University of Michigan,
Ann Arbor; and his MA and Ph.D. from the
Department of Comparative Literature at UCBerkeley.
He is the author of “Frontier Constitutions:
Christianity and Colonial Empire in the Nineteenth
Century Philippines” (UC Press 2009; University of
the Philippines Press 2010); and the translator of
Julio Ramos’s “Divergent Modernities in Latin
America: Culture and Politics in the Nineteenth
Century.”

LOVE, DEATH & DANCE HALLS
In Depression Era California
by Marivi Soliven

A talk on anti-micegenation laws, Filipino migrant
farmworkers and taxi dance halls in 1930’s California.
Racism, immigrant rights and marriage equality were as
hotly debated back in the 1930, as they are these days. The
award winning author of THE MANGO BRIDE will also
read excerpts from her second novel, THE RIZAL
DANCE HALL MURDER and discuss the archival
research of what went into writing the novel, which is
loosely based on an actual San Diego murder that took
place in 1935. “Rhumba at the Rizal”, a short play based
on scenes from “The Rizal Dance Hall Murder,” was
performed recently onstage at the Lyceum Theater in
downtown San Diego as part of the Halo-Halo suite of play
produced by Asian Story Theater. After gaining awards for
two children’s books in 1991 and 1992, Marivi’s debut
novel In the “Service of Secrets” won the 2011 Grand
Prize for the Novel, all three prizes conferred by the
Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for Literature, the
Philippine counterpart of the Pulitzer Prize. That novel,
retitled The Mango Bride was published by Penguin Books
in April, 2013. The San Diego Book Awards later named
“The Mango Bride” Best Contemporary Fiction of 2014.
The novel’s Spanish edition, “Hace Una Eternidad en
Manila” (Grupo Planeta, 2014) was released in October,
2014. National Book Store released the Filipino edition in
August 2015.

You can order autographed copies of the authors’ books.

Explore a T’nalak forest and enjoy 50 of the highest quality handwoven tapestries by the T’boli people of Lake Sebu, Cotabato, Mindanao Island; the documentary Weaving T’nalak; a touch-and-feel experience of the raw materials from the abaca tree; t’nalak looms; and rolls of finished products.

Curator Fides Enriquez is an independent ethnographer, film documentarian, photographer, produce,r and explorer.

May 17: Book Launch, Music, & Martial Arts

Author Lane Wilcken deciphers the fragments of Filipino tradition and reveals the actual life history of an ancient art and a people as we launch his book, The Forgotten Children of Maui: Filipino Myths, Tattoos & Rituals of a Demigod. 2013. Hidden within the ancient mythology, and long-forgotten tattoo designs, and dying rituals of the Philippines, lies the powerful impact of Maui, a man well-known in Polynesia but nearly forgotten in the Philippines. Wilcken is also the author of Filipino Tattoos: Ancient to Modern. 2010.

We will also hear the haunting sounds of chants from ancient Philippines which only Grace Nono, well-known ethnomusicologist could interpret as we launch her latest book, Song of the Babaylan: Living Voices, Medicines, Spiritualities of Philippine Ritualist – Oralist – Healers.(2013). Nono is also the author of The Shared Voice: Chanted and Spoken Narratives from the Philippines (2008).

The sounds of kulintang, the traditional musical instrument of the Muslim people of Southern Philippines, will enchant you as Eleanor Academia of the World Kulintang Institute demonstrates the varied tones that evolve from the brass gongs and speak to your heart. She and her husband, Guro Cass Magda of the Magda Institute (which teaches martial arts philosophy in action) will also demonstrate traditional martial art forms called Kali in the southern islands of the country and Arnis in the lowlands of Visayas and Luzon. They will talk about how the art has evolved from a dance of skills to the art of self-defense.

Hand-weaving whether for cloth or mats and baskets, kulintang music, chants and native dances, martial arts, the art of tattooing and the calligraphy of ancient Filipinos will surprise you. They are the basis of the ancient culture of the people. The Filipino you meet today is the composite of all these traditions, as he evolves from 350 years of Hispanization which has Christianized the core of his being.

MAY 24, 2014  – Reception for Filipino-American Authors

Authors have been part of the Bookshop family all these years. Our anniversary celebration is as much theirs, as it is ours!

He will perform traditional kulintang music and to show his versalility, he will demonstrate how music from an ancient instrument can be blended to create fusion music of the 2lst century.

 MAY 31, 2014   – A Celebration of Filipino Folk dances

Traditional dances from the North to the South will highlight the similarities and the differences among various communities, whether in their musical traditions, costumes and folk ways. Some of the dances to be featured include Sambi sa Malong or Kappa Malong Malong, a Maranao dance that shows the many ways of wearing a malong. Malong is a simple tubular yet highly functional piece of cloth. Another one is the Kalinga Courtship Dance from the Luzon Cordilleras.

Edited by Florina H. Capistrano-Baker
Essays by Florina H. Capistrano-Baker, John Guy and John Miksic

Publisher: Ayala Foundation and National University of Singapore Press (NUS). 2011. 300 pages.

Winner of the 31st Philippine National Book Awards for Design

Philippine Ancestral Gold features more than 1,000 gold objects that were recovered in the Philippines from the 1960s to 1981 and now form part of the collection of the Ayala Museum in Manila. Many of these treasures were found in association with tenth-to-twelfth century Chinese export ceramics, and formal similarities with objects from other Southeast Asian cultures affirm regional affinities and inter-island trade networks that flourished in the region before there was regular contact with the Western world. Adornments of elite individuals and the deities they adorned include a spectacular array of golden sashes, necklaces, pectorals, diadems, earrings, finger rings, and arm and leg ornaments. Over 400 full-color photographs are included in the book which you will enjoy immensely.

This important book provides a great deal of material that is almost unknown generally outside of the Philippines. Scholars working on many other topics will find it invaluable, especially those tracing the various maritime trade networks that operated throughout the greater Indian Ocean system.

-Emma C. Bunker, Asian Art Department, Denver Art Museum.

“The authors are among the world’s most experienced specialists on this subject, and the line of vision from the Philippines and other parts of island Southeast Asia to the mainland is novel and most inspiring.”

-Andreas Reinecke, Commission for Archaeology of Non-European Cultures
of the German Archaeological Institute.

“All collections are valuable in different ways. The monetary worth of this one is incalculable. But its deeper value can be assayed only in consideration of its historical and academic significance and the self-knowledge and pride it gives to Filipinos.”

-Florina H. Capistrano-Baker

“…what distinguishes the Philippines goldworking tradition is that it displays a level sophistication only matched by the kingdoms of Java.”

-John Guy

“The Ayala Museum’s Gold Collection is perhaps the country’s greatest tangible cultural asset and can stand comparison with any other assemblage of gold artifacts in the world.”

-John Miksic
