Thoughts on the Christ the King Celebration

November 23, 2008, S.A.A., headed by the school director and parish priest Rev. Joel Reynold P. Castillo, joined the Cristo Rey Celebration at Baresbes, Dingras, Ilocos Norte, together with the teachers and students who untiringly devoted themselves to the long and winding road to St. John Bosco, Parish Church at Baresbes, Dingras.

The Cristo Rey celebration was attended not only by students of the different catholic schools of the Diocese of Laoag but by hundreds of devotees and faithful coming from the different parishes. The parish of St. John Bosco in Baresbes, Dingras showed to the pilgrims their hospitality and their greatness of character by preparing well the three barangays comprising the parish. The people of the church help each other so that the celebration is to be done successfully. The many devotees appreciated the preparations made by the people—a showcase of unity and cooperation in faith.

Those who walked the roads for the procession remember that we are a community on a pilgrimage to the Father and we proclaim Jesus as our King. Thus, as subjects to His Kingdom, we ought to live and work for peace, justice, honesty and love so that people on earth may live “as it is in heaven!”
