    BARKADA NI PEDRO CALUNGSOD FAN PAGE

     
    After a month from its launching, ''pray-ers’’ from the online prayer network ‘Barkada ni Pedro’, in honor of the soon to be Saint Pedro Calungsod, increased to almost 2,000.
    This facebook page named ‘Barkada ni Pedro’ (BNP) was launched last August 6 and was created by the Cebu Archdiocesan Youth Commission to provide a meeting place where people who need someone to pray for them can meet people who want to pray for other’s intentions.
    “If cyberspace is connecting people, prayer is also connecting ourselves to everyone and to God. If Pedro Calungsod were alive today, he could have been a facebook user too,” said Msgr. Arthur Navales, the commission chairman.
    To join this online community, simply go to www.facebook.com/barkadanipedro and click “like”. There are two activities a pray-er can do on BNP: to pray & to be prayed for. One can post a prayer intention in the field 'Write Something…' which is transformed into a 'pray box.’ Example is “PRAY BOX: My mama is not feeling well, please pray for her.” While, if you want to commit to pray for the person’s intention, click the 'like' button of the posted intention.
    The prayer intentions posted in BNP will be offered during the 6:00 p.m. Mass every Friday at the Archdiocesan Youth Center on P. Gomez Street beside the Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral.
    Pedro Calungsod, a young missionary worker who was killed in Guam in 1672, will be canonized by Pope Benedict XVI in Rome on Oct. 21 this year.
