MAKATI CIty, July 31, 2015—Fr. Luciano Ariel Felloni, the Argentine priest who gives many Filipinos a run for their money with his excellent command of their own language, is set to give a talk about the Blessed Virgin and her maternal role, on the First Saturday of August, August 1.
Mother of the poor
Entitled “Mary, Mother of the Poor,” the free seminar is open to the public, and is organized by Pueblo Amante María Mariological Marian Society of the Philippines (PAMMSPhil) in line with the ongoing celebration of the Year of the Poor.
As its name suggests, the First Saturday Marian Conference is scheduled on a day dedicated to Mary, August 1, 2015, 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the San Carlos Seminary Auditorium, Epifanio de los Santos Ave., Guadalupe Viejo, Makati City.
Speaking Filipino like a native, Felloni almost became a household name before and during the pastoral visit of his famous compatriot—the Holy Father—with his frequent guestings on Philippine television, in order to share with the public his encounter with the former Buenos Aires Archbishop Jorge Mario Bergoglio.
Participants are also requested to attend the Holy Mass scheduled right after the talk proper.
The schedule and the topics of forthcoming First Saturday Marian seminars are as follows:
- October 3, 2015
“Mary and the Poor of Asia”
Msgr. Sabino Vengco
- November 7, 2015
“Mary’s Magnificat: Lifting Up the Lowly”
Fr. Anton Pascual
All the events are open to the public. (Raymond A. Sebastián/CBCP News)
