Bicolano cleric installed as parish priest in Rome


MANILA -- The new parish priest in the Vatican City is a Filipino--Father Bonifacio “Ted” Lopez, born and raised in Ligao City, Albay in the Bicol region.

Known by his colleagues and friends as a bubbly and humble servant, Father Ted is the first Bicolano Gregorian priest and the third Filipino to become a parish priest inside the Vatican City in Rome.

The installation of Father Ted was held at the Saints Elizabeth and Zachary Parish of Vatican City on Friday (October 27, 2017).

“I know that this new calling comes with deeper sense of commitment to the Lord. I believe that this is His plan for me and I whole-heartedly accept it. To God be the Glory,” said Fr. Ted.

After completing his high school studies at St. Gregory the Great Seminary, Fr. Ted went to Rome to finish a college degree and fulfill his childhood dream of becoming a priest.

In December 1994, he was officially ordained to priesthood. Lopez has been living in Italy for 30 years and serving the Roman Catholic Church for 22 years. He recently served the Parrocchia Nostra Signora di Lourdes (Our Lady of Lourdes), Diocese of Rome.

In January 2015, Lopez was part of Pope Francis’ delegation during his visit in the Philippines where they went to Tacloban for spiritual support to the victims of Typhoon Yolanda.
“He cracks jokes every once in a while and it always gathers a good laugh for a solid minute or two,” one of Fr. Lopez’s seminarian classmate said.

It’s clear that his sense of humor doesn’t go unnoticed, that is why his fellow seminarian classmates think he is going to be a great parish priest.

Fr. Lopez remembered a Latin adage: “When parish priests are outside Rome, they are considered as bishops. Because inside Rome, the Pope himself serves as Bishop."

Fr. Lopez is thankful for the trust that was given to him by their Bishop, none other than Pope Francis himself. He said that this has a greater meaning, which is to guide a part of his flock.

“It is a privilege for me as a Filipino to serve as parish priest in Rome. Historically, it was the Europeans who introduced the Catholic faith to Filipinos. Now, it is the Filipinos who will spread the faith in Europe,” Fr. Ted said.
Fr. Ted is following the footsteps of his fellow Bicolano, the late Bishop Jose Barlin -- the first Filipino Bishop in the Catholic Church who was anointed as the 28th Bishop of Nueva Caceres by the Vatican on Dec. 14, 1905. Barlin's episcopal consecration was held on June 29, 1906 in Manila. (PR)

More cops to be deployed for 'Oplan Kaluluwa' in Bicol


By Mar Serrano Arguelles

LEGAZPI CITY -- Hundreds of policemen would be deployed to beef up existing police forces across the six provinces of Bicol as security measures for the upcoming All Saints' Day on Wednesday next week, the Philippine National Police (PNP) in Bicol said Wednesday.

Police Senior Inspector Malu Calubaquib, PNP Bicol spokesperson, said police checkpoints and assistance centers would be set up in cemeteries, major highways, airports, seaports and bus terminals as security measures on All Saints' Day, a religious tradition observed throughout the country.

Calubaquib said security preparations were in place for “Oplan Kaluluwa,” where additional policemen would be deployed to support various police assistance centers set up in cemeteries, terminals, ports, and highways.

She said PNP in Bicol would be on full alert status. Policemen would not be allowed to go on leave and those who are on leave would be recalled and be put on duty during the religious observance.

“The measure would ensure the safety of all residents and visitors who would be arriving here to observe All Souls' Day,” Calubaquib said.

The police assistance centers will assist incoming and outgoing passengers in the cities of Naga, Legazpi, and Masbate and in Virac town in Catanduanes.

Calubaquib said checkpoints would be set up to assist motorists and other visitors from other places. Also, security checks would be strictly enforced in bus terminals and major seaports across the region, she added.

Calubaquib said they are closely coordinating with the Department of Transportation and Communications, Department of Public Works and Highways, Philippine Army, Department of Health and civic organizations to implement "Oplan Kaluluwa" in the six provinces of Bicol. (PNA)

Wheelchairs found in PhilPost await delivery: DOH

MANILA -- The Department of Health (DOH) has clarified a news report on “dozens of wheelchairs (that) were found dumped” by the department at the Philippine Postal Corp. (PhilPost) office in Quezon City.

In a press statement, the DOH said the wheelchairs at the PhilPost warehouse were the remaining units that would be delivered to health facilities in the provinces of Catanduanes and Masbate in the Bicol region.

“The DOH is due to deliver these wheelchairs -- 88 units for Virac, Catanduanes and 312 units for Masbate," the DOH said.

“Their Provincial Health Offices cited their limited storage space and requested for temporary holding at the Post office, thus delaying the delivery of the courier service providers hired by the DOH,” it added.

In an online report released last Sunday, a “concerned citizen” saw the wheelchairs “moldering in the PhilPost” office along NIA Road.

The concerned citizen said that according to a guard, the wheelchairs were brought to PhilPost by the DOH as it lacked space in its office.

In its statement, the department cited a PhilPost report that the supposedly damaged wheelchairs were not actually damaged but were removed from their boxes “when they were soaked due to leakage from their ceiling”.

“All of them were already transferred to another location for cleaning before delivery,” the DOH said, assuring that it was doing its best to ensure that “no single centavo of the people’s taxes is wasted". (PNA)

House acts to provide Pinoys comprehensive mental care


With at least one study claiming that one out of every three Filipinos grapples with mental issues, the House of Representatives passed on second reading a measure that would address the growing need for a national mental health system that really works for Filipinos needing psychological care.

Coming just one more step for approval with the formality of a third reading is House Bill 6252 entitled "The Comprehensive Mental Health Act" which intends to deliver an integrated mental health services, while protecting the rights of persons availing psychiatric, neurologic and psychosocial health services.

The bill's principal author, Deputy Speaker Rep. Romero Quimbo cited several studies in the Philippines which called attention to the lack of proper care for mental health patients who are prone to abuses in the health care system.

Mental health refers to a state of well-being in which every individual realizes one’s own potential; is able to cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and make a contribution to the community.

Rep. Angelina Tan (4th District, Quezon), chairperson of the committee on health, and Rep. Chiqui Roa-Puno (1st District, Antipolo City) sponsored the bill on the floor.

Ultimately, the proposed law wants to ensure that Filipinos are able to contribute to the development of the country and are able to attain better quality of life because their mental needs are assured along with their overall physical and health needs.

The bill integrates mental health care in the general health delivery system, especially in the programs of the Department of Health (DOH) and the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG). It also promotes the study of mental health in both elementary and secondary educational systems to prevent depression, obesity, and teenage pregnancy among students of this age group.

The bill strengthens the functions and reconstitutes the composition of the Philippine Council for Mental Health (PCMH) which was created under Executive Order 470 and attached to the DOH to provide a coherent, rational and unified response to mental health problems, concerns, and efforts through the formulation and implementation of the National Mental Health Care Services Delivery System.

Likewise, it provides for the rights of person with mental illnesses or who is being treated for a mental illness such as the right to freedom from social, economic, and political discrimination and stigmatization.

Under the bill, mental health professionals shall have the right to have a safe and supportive health environment; participate in a continuous professional development program; and participate in the planning, development, and management of health services.

Aside from Quimbo, Roa-Puno and Tan, the other authors of the bill are House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, Majority Leader Rodolfo Fariñas, Minority Leader Danilo Suarez, Deputy Speakers Pia Cayetano and Linabelle Ruth Villarica, among others.

BOC warns public against online love scam


The Bureau of Customs (BOC) has cautioned Filipino and foreign netizens against an online scam that lures victims with fake love and promises.

Customs Commissioner Isidro Lapena issued the warning after receiving reports of increasing incidents of the internet scam, citing data from the bureau’s help desk, BOC-CARES.

From January to September 2017, the help desk had received a total of 1,263 reports and inquiries on various online scams. Of the total number, 412 reports were made via phone calls, 159 via email, and 692 via social media.

The numbers, however, reflect both verified scam incidents and those that were merely reported but remained unverified because the caller or the email sender did not provide further details.

"If things are too good to be true, get out, that's a trap," he said in a statement.

Records showed that some of the names often used by the scammers are Danica Mae Chavez, James Henry, John Deck, George, Ben Anthony, Jojit Padilla, Luzviminda, Michael Wilson, Lea Gomez, Edward, Jenalyn, Karren, and Rowena.

Also, the common names used as couriers are SpeedEx Cargo, Speed Cargo, Global Express Cargo, Skyline Delivery Express, Express Cargo, Blue Express, Airtrack Cargo, United Global, Alpha Blink, Sky Express, Quick Cargo, Oceanic Delivery, ABC Cargo, Unifed, Link Up Freight, ECC Cargo, ACC Cargo, and Union Cargo.

Accredited Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) de-consolidators' list shows no record of the couriers commonly used by the scammers.

The Customs chief said the agency recently received a complaint from a scammed resident of Pangasinan by an internet sweetheart who befriended and promised her a package containing signature bags and gadgets.

The victim was duped to pay PHP30,000 to a certain Jenalyn Miranda for the release of the package said to be held by Customs. However, after paying Miranda via money transfer, the suspects asked for an additional PHP80,000 for the release of the package.

According to the Enforcement and Security Service, online scams mostly make use of online dating sites, social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, or through phone calls, text messages, and emails.

The scammer often preys on their victims by befriending them online and promising to send them a package containing gifts along with huge sum of money. Bogus receipts and tracking numbers of packages are also sent to the unsuspecting victims.

Others are victimized via text messages or phone calls claiming they have a package held by Customs, often citing the BOC in Cebu, and the victim has to send money to get the package.

"They would usually use the name of the bureau and pose as BOC employees who are asking money to shoulder the duties and taxes in exchange for the release of the package," Lapena said.

The victims are often asked to deposit money through money transfer service or bank accounts in Cebuana, Western Union, or BDO.

The BOC chief noted that they collect customs duties and taxes through accredited agent banks (AAB) and not through personal bank accounts or other money transfer services.

"If in case a stranger texted or chatted you about an unclaimed package held by BOC, or there is money in the package, you can double check the existence of the package by reaching the BOC Helpdesk at ‎705-6000 or by sending us a message at our Facebook page Bureau of Customs PH," he added.

Likewise, online scam victims are advised to report the incidents to the cybercrime divisions of the Philippine National Police (PNP) or National Bureau of Investigation (NBI). (Ferdinand G. Patinio/PNA)
