North Cotabato celebrates National Bible Week

“I was surprised seeing the active participation of every parishioner in various parishes in every activity in relation to the importance of the Holy Bible in Christian lives. It really touched me seeing children bringing Bible during masses,” said Kidapawan Diocese’s vicar general and diocesan administrator Fr. Armando Angeles, DCK.

Angeles visited various parishes during the Bible week celebration.

During the thanksgiving mass here, he stressed on the need for families to read the Bible.

“Reading the Scriptures would surely help our young children in their understanding the messages of God that He wanted us to treasure in our hearts and as basis in our day to day life.”

He also urged the parents to keep a Bible in every corner of their home to remind their children and other household members that God is present everywhere.

“The presence of the Holy Bible in our homes is very important. This would be our trademark that we are believers of God and real Christians who fully understand the wonders of the Lord stated in the Bible,” he said.

In a related development, businessmen selling Bible and other religious articles in Kidapawan City are unfazed with the presence of internet cafes that affect their sells of religious items, especially the Bible.

According to the management of the Philippine Christian Bible Bookstore here, from five to maximum of 10 Bibles are being sold each week here.
