I join the BUKAS LOOB sa DIYOS in gratefully celebrating the 35th Anniversary of BLD Global foundation and of the foundation of BLD Manila.

The years, 1985-2020, have been years of blessings, individually received and gratefully shared. True enough, you have been “United in love… and bearing fruit in Christ.” True enough, Christ can say to you, “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Remain in my love,” (Jn 15/9).

Continue and remain united to one another in faith, hope and love.

In FAITH – through your faithful declaration and witnessing of your belief in the doctrine of the Church,

In HOPE – through your trust and confidence in the providence of God and in the intercession of our Blessed Mother and the Saints,

In LOVE – through your care and concern for one another, manifested in the sharing of goods and blessings.

BUKAS LOOB sa DIYOS has become almost worldwide in presence, trying to be faithful to the command of Jesus Christ, “Go into the whole word and preach the Gospel.” Planting the seed of your presence is likewise planting the seed of Christ’s Presence. Wherever you will be there also will be Christ, in response to your prayer “Your presence, O Lord, I seek,” (Ps. 27/8).

Through your zeal and effort, the celebration of BLD’s 35th Anniversary will likewise be the beginning of the next 35th Anniversary. As we celebrate it now, so will they celebrate it then.
Sincerely Yours,

Archbishop-Emeritus of Jaro
BLD Community Spiritual Director-Emeritus
