Ever since the Spanish had introduced the Filipino people of God, he and his symbols have always played a pivotal role in our culture. From past to present, Filipinos value the cross with only great respect for it.

Cather’s effective use of symbols to indirectly indicate the presence of God, both expresses the strength of her own faith, as well as provides tools and inspiration others might use in their personal search.

King Saint Stephen I received many honors during his extensive life span. Stephen was born in 975 AD with the name Vajk, but, in 995 AD he was baptized by the 2nd bishop of Prague and re-named Stephen. The bishop who baptised him was named Saint Adalbert.

Daniel lives out the first of the five Sacred Heart Goals, “A Personal and Active Faith in God.” This goal has a strong focus on recognising the importance of showing love, faith and compassion for Jesus Christ and God through prayer and reflection. Daniel had a “Personal and Active Faith in God” which he demonstrated successfully through his faithfulness towards God, Christianity and most importantly his people.
