Bukas Palad album and Fr.Manoling Francisco book to launch this Sunday

For avid fans of Jesuit Music Ministry’s (JMM) timeless songs and followers of its awe-inspiring publications, Jesuit Communication Foundation (JesCom) has prepared a truly special pre-Easter gathering.

Celebrating the dual launch of the acclaimed Bukas Palad Music Ministry’s newest album “Behold the Risen Lord,” and the esteemed Fr. Manoling Francisco, SJ’s book “To Gaze upon the Lord’s Face”, the faithful are invited to a free prayer-concert on March 24, Sunday, 3:30pm at the Church of the Gesu, Ateneo de Manila University.

With its spirited Easter theme, “Behold the Risen Lord” completes Bukas Palad’s trilogy of recordings for specific liturgical seasons. Among the heartrending songs included in the worship musical group’s newest CD are the praise and thanksgiving single “Sa Iyong Muling Pagkabuhay”, the Communion-inspired “Pakikinabang”, and the Easter Vigil accompaniment “My Soul Longs for You (Psalm 42)”.

Beautifully complementing the messages of “Behold the Risen Lord’s” joyous Easter songs, are the riveting reflection points taken from renowned Jesuit composer Fr.Manoling Francisco’s “To Gaze Upon the Lord’s Face”. JesCom’s latest publication compiles Fr.Manoling’s profound writings and inspiring homilies featured under the Philippine Star column “God’s Word Today”.

Concluding the afternoon’s festive gathering will be a celebration of the Holy Eucharist, officiated by Fr.Manoling himself, capping off a deeply enriching Easter preparation.

Copies of the “Behold the Risen Lord” CD and songbook, and “To Gaze upon the Lord’s Face”, are now available to pre-order. For inquiries, please call 426-5971 or 72 local 113. To pre-order the album, fill out the form here http://bit.ly/BTRLOrderForm
