Hear Mass in Quiapo Online!

Quiapo Church picture from Wikipedia
Now, devotees and parishioners from all over the world need not come to the Philippines just to hear Mass in Quiapo Church, home of the centuries-old image of the Black Nazarene.

Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene in Quiapo, Manila, introduced the online streaming of its regular Masses, it was announced last Sunday by its rector, Msgr. Jose Clemente Ignacio.

The live streaming service was initiated following numerous requests from overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), mostly devotees, who wanted to hear Mass but could not do so because of their circumstances.

The live streaming of the hourly Masses—through the church’s website 

Schedule on Fridays begins from 
4 a.m. to 12:15 p.m

and resumes at 

4 p.m. to 8 p.m. 

The Holy Hour or the Eucharistic adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, every Friday can also be viewed live. scheduled at 3 p.m.

All of the Sunday Masses from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. are also broadcast online.

Children’s Mass or the Misa Pro Populo @ 3 p.m.
Talks being held at Quiapo Church can also be accessed live through the Internet.

WARNING: Attending Masses through live streaming should not be a substitute for attending Mass in person. “Catholics still have to go to Mass in their churches,” said Ignacio.  They are just offering this for those who can’t go to Mass due to their condition.

PNP has just served arrest warrant to former Pres. Arroyo

Southern Police District under the leadership of Senior Superintendent James Bucayo and acting upon the order of National Capital Region Police Office Director Alan Purisima, has just served an arrest warrant for former Pres. Arroyo at her hospital room @ the St. Luke's Medical Center @ the Fort. The arrest warrant was issued and signed by Judge Jesus Mupas of Branch 112 of the Pasay Regional Trial Court.
PNP's Senior Superintendent James Bucayo said Arroyo's husband Mike Arroyo, son Rep. Dato, former members of GMA cabinet, ex DILG Ronnie Puno, ex Solicitor General Devena and CGMA lawyer Atty. Jose Flaminiano were present during the serving of arrest warrant.

Warrant was issued at around 4:30 p.m. and was served at around 6:30 p.m. according to PNP. Police said Arroyo showed no reaction while warrant was being served, her lawyers promised to cooperate. She didn't talk. She just nod.

Senior Superintendent James Bucayo said CGMA lawyer Atty. Jose Flamiano stopped Senior Superintendent Coronel from reading her the Miranda doctrine. Atty Jose Flamiano waived her client's right to be read her Miranda rights because she might be unduly stressed. No pictures was allowed, they want dignity for GMA. 

PNP said there are security personnel now guarding outside GMA's room. She is under police custody but CGMA is being allowed to stay in the hospital due to her health condition.  

Mug shots and finger printing to be done tomorrow. PNP said Arroyo camp may just provide a photo for the mugshot. And as a courtesy to the former president the PNP allowed CGMA to remain in the hospital until she gets stronger.

Senior Superintendent James Bucayo said they wanted to ask Arroyo's doctors for updates to check if she can be transferred to detention facility or not but they were nowhere to be found. So they will be back tomorrow to ask the doctors of CGMA to determine if and when they can take GMA out of the hospital and put her in SPD detention facility in Taguig.

Meanwhile, NCR CIDG also arrested Former Maguindanao election supervisor Atty. Lintang Bedol and was taken to the Philippine National Police Custodial Center in Camp Crame, according to Chief Superintendent Agrimero Cruz Jr.  He said that the arrest warrant for Bedol was served at around 6:15 p.m. Friday. He also faces charges of election sabotage.

The CIDG has also served in Bicutan the arrest warrant against Andal Ampatuan Sr., another respondent in the electoral sabotage case.

RTC has exclusive original jurisdiction over cases of electoral sabotage under RA 9369, Art. 268.Travel & Leisure - Top Blogs Philippines

A November 18, 2011 press release from the Department of Transportation and Communications

The Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) has thrown its full support behind the “11.20.2011 Run for the Pasig River” on Sunday, November 20, by offering free rides to all participants of the event at the MRT-3 and LRT, from 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. the same day.

Participants just need to present their race bibs to avail of the MRT-3 free rides along the stretch of Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (Edsa). The event will kick off at the Cultural Center of the Philippines, located near the Vito Cruz station of LRT line 1.

Last year, the DOTC also offered free LRT rides to participants of the “10.10.10 Run for the Pasig River,” which broke the world record for the most number of participants in a racing event with 116,086 runners.

“The annual ‘Run for the Pasig River’ is a worthy cause for saving and protecting our environment,” DOTC Secretary Mar Roxas said. “DOTC also strongly supports the use of green technology in certain sectors of the public transport sector, and the antipollution campaign in our roadways.”

DOTC attached agencies such as the Land Transportation Office and Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board are currently implementing aggressive programs that encourage Filipino commuters to convert their car engines to compressed natural gas, a more environment-friendly solution that reduces carbon dioxide emission.

“This is in line with the PNoy government’s objective of providing the riding public, our bosses, a convenient and reliable transport system,” Roxas added.

The “Run for Pasig River” is an advocacy of ABS-CBN Foundation Inc. The Foundation, with the support of DOTC, is attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the most number of participants in a foot race generating public awareness in the importance of cleaning up the Pasig River.

The “11.20.2011 Run for the Pasig River” has 3K, 5K, and 10K categories.
Registration fees are P300 for 3K and 5K, and P450 for the 10K

Students need only to pay P150 for their registration fees for the 3K and 5K by presenting valid identification cards.

Registration has been extended until Saturday (November 19) at the SM Mall of Asia, SM Megamall, SM North Edsa, Athlete’s Foot, Glorietta 3, and R.O.X.
