"Today, we celebrate the feast of the exaltation of the Cross and at the same time the 39th death anniversary of the father of the Knights of Columbus in the Philippines, Fr. George J. Willmann, SJ. Allow me first to give soe reflections on the feast and in this context let us see the significance of Fr. George Willmann’s life and ministry.

First about the feast, we celebrate a double anniversary. A basilica was built in the year 335 above the empty grace of Jesus and in 614 this was destroyed by the Persians and in 1149, the Crusaders built the present Church of the Holy Sepulcher. We also commemorate the discovery of the Lord’s cross by the empress, St. Helena in the year 320."  read more »
