Simbang Gabi 2007 Homilies

For some time (from 2002-2004) , it was the practice of professors of Divine Word Seminary to publish their homilies for the masses of Simbang Gabi. Through the encouragement of Fr. Jerome Marquez, SVD, our Canon Law professor, once again, we would like to present to you our commentaries of the Simbang Gabi readings as service to preachers as well as to those who would like to meditate on the "Christmas" readings.

I would like to thank personally the following writers and guest writers:
Divine Word Seminary: Carlito Reyes, Ronnie Crisostomo, Alex Muana, and Antolin Uy
St. Jude Catholic School: Jerome Marquez, Linus Nicasio, and Ferdinand Alfante
Christ the King Seminary: Raymun Festin
St. Paul Seminary (Silang, Cavite): Joe Aripio
San Carlos University (Cebu): Roderick Salazar
Rome: Antonio Pernia
Belgium: Anthony Ynzon

Thanks also to Nielo Cantilado (our provincial) for linking this blog to the new official website of SVD Philippine Central Province; to Logos Publications for allowing some articles from the The Word in Other Words (the SVD Bible Diary) to be reprinted here; and to Ms. Bing Kasilag of CTS for proofreading the texts.
