San Carlos City, NEGROS OCCIDENTAL–Two books on St. Ezekiel Diaz Moreno were launched at the Sto. Tomas de Villanueva-Recoletos Chapel last September 8, 2019.
Prof. Emmanuel Luis A. Romanillos and Prof. Dennis Madrigal, both co-authors of “St. Ezekiel Moreno: Studies on His Missionary Activity in the Philippines” and “St. Ezekiel Moreno: Recollect Icon of Holiness in the Mission,” graced the occasion.
Prof. Romanillos, who has authored at least 17 books about the Recollects in the Philippines, mentioned the timeliness of the book launch that coincided with the birthday of Mother Mary. He added that St. Ezekiel was a true Marian.
Prof. Madrigal, during his speech, mentioned a few of the challenges that he and Prof. Romanillos had to go through during the writing, gathering and editing phases of the two books.
Rev. Fr. Angel Martinez Cuesta and Rev. Fr. Pablo G. Panedas, OAR were also among the contributing writers of the books.
The book launch was the first of its kind in Recoletos de San Carlos Community.
