PARA SA IKA-100 NA TAON KAN CABUGAO BILANG PAROKYA

ii

AMA, danay ka niamong sinasamba. Samong kaligtasan na ika pamurawayon sa gibo asin tataramon. Papagkanigoang magtalubo kami sa pagtubod; na maglingkod saimo sa kapakumbabaan. Warasan an kapatawaran sa gabos niamong kasalan. Booton mo, na giraray makisumaro kami saimo. Palaada an pagkamoot sa samuyang puso na ini danay na magkalayo sa paglingkod sa kapwa. Antabayan mo kami sa maogmang paglaom sa magaya-gayang pagcelebrar kan centenario kan Cabugao bilang Parroquia. Magi lugod ining bagong Pentecostes tanganing maiharubay mi an Marahay na Bareta sa gabos na tawo. Pakabanala an mga familia. Giboha kaming paraataman kan kapalibutan. Kamurawayan sa Dios huli ki JesuCristo, kaiba kan Espiritu Santo, sa pangataman ni Inang Maria asin pamibi ni San Antonio de Padua asin Seor San Roque. AMEN.Composed by: Nestor T. Taroy, Jr.

--- In the Church calendar, Pentecost marks the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles in the form of tongues of fire, fifty days after the Lords resurrection. --- The day saw the birth of the Church with the Apostles, inflamed by the power of the Holy Spirit, proclaiming the Good News to the nations. --- The centennial anniversary commemorates with gratitude the birth of Cabugao as a parish in 1911. After a hundred years, it aims to go back to its roots, to reflect on its being a parish, to recall its vision, and to rekindle its commitment to its mission. The occasion is, therefore, a moment of rebirth, a year of grace, a new Pentecost. --- By a blessed coincidence, one of the symbols of St. Anthony of Padua, patron of Cabugao, is a flame of fire. It signifies his deep love of God and loving concern for others. It stands for the flames of fire of the Pentecost which, when received by the Apostles, gave them the power to speak in tongues understandable to everyone. This is the language of love. --- On its 100th year of foundation, Cabugao envisions a community united in love, strong in faith, and fortified by a living hope in the Lord who promises to be with the Church till the end of times.

SCRIPTA MANENT. What is written remains. Much has been said about time, all pointing to the truism of an almost worn-out adage: TIME IS GOLD. Like gold, its worth goes beyond the shining luster that captures the naked eye. Its value goes back to the back-breaking work of excavating the ground, to the oftentimes perilous operation of getting into the mining pit, to the intricate process of extracting the valuable substance pure and spotless from the ore. We all wonder at the beauty of everything made of gold, but more wonderful still is the industry and the prodigy of its artisans, which are not easily visible to the sight. That CABUGAO PARISH is now aged a hundred years may not interest any ordinary observer, after all, everything goes by the tide of time and anybody can erect milestones along the road of life. However, those who have a keen eye on history will surely wonder how a tiny conglomerate of 4 barangays, now inhabited by a total of a little more than 5,000 souls, could pass the canonical requirements of becoming a parish. And yet, no less than a hundred years ago, Cabugao was born as one. This book, therefore, recalls and celebrates the past hundred years of Cabugao with a view of providing its new and rising generations a seasoned vista of how greatness comes even to the materially-impoverished, excellence even to those with dormant talents, success even to those considered hopeless by society. Far, then, from engaging the reader into a useless debate on the haves and have nots of this humble enterprise, this opus simply wishes to pay tribute to the legendary hardworking spirit of the Cabugaonon, to its simple yet strong faith in God though at times still within the bounds of natural religiosity, to its fond devotion to San Antonio, and most importantly to the people who best exemplified them to the full. Ganyan dito sa Cabugao. Aog ninto ang Cabugaonon. Throughout this book, one sees the image of the FIRE OF THE PENTECOST dominating its pages. This is the same fire that ignites the heart of the miner and the stove at the atelier; the fire that moved the soul of Bishop MacGinley in 1911 to found the parish of Cabugao; the fire that lifts the spirit of the pastor to invoke Gods benediction upon the faithful, and the parishioners to bring their love offerings to the altar in return; the fire that kindled the heart of San Antonio and the Apostles to proclaim the Good News. This is the FIRE OF GODS LOVE, THE HOLY SPIRIT. Humbly grateful for this unmerited experience of Gods love, we set our hands to chronicle the past hundred -year journey of the Cabugao Parish on the golden canvas of TIME. For given the limitations of our faculties we easily forget even the most precious of our memories. We, therefore, subscribe to the wisdom of the Latin proverb: SCRIPTA MANENT. What is written remains. And after having gone through its pages, may the words of this book BE WRITTEN IN OUR HEARTS as well. UT IN OMNIBUS GLORIFICETUR DEUS. That in everything God may be glorified.- The PARISH PRIEST

Pilay, lopog, caguiching, gabos mong pinaomayan, An linalgan nin Diablo: patin man an linalangcas inaagao mong olian, can daan na caguinhauahan.

Ipamibi mo sa Dios an maga paracasala.
