As I was trying to keep my time occupied while on my 9 hour flight on board Gulf Air Flight GF-155, I asked the flight steward a newspaper to read rather than to scroll movies on the screen. The Philippines Star newspaper was given, then, under the headline, Undas online for overseas Filipinos
As the Whole islands of the Philippines observed the All Saint’s Day and the all Soul’s Day, overseas Filipinos had no time to get involved in the said observance. Overseas Filipinos include seafarers are those who don’t have the chance to visit the graveyard of their departed loved ones.
In connection with this, the Catholic Bishop Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) launched just yesterday a website for undas celebration. This website is intended for overseas Filipinos to send request for prayers and mass for their loved ones.
Overseas Filipinos may visit http://www.undasonline.com/ by listing the names of their dead and send it online. For the intention of the dead, masses will be said on Nov. 1 to 8 at the CBCP chapel.
The website also provides facts on the observance of the All Soul’s Day and All Saint’s Day. Non-Catholics can also raise question and send it online.
This website is a good tool for overseas Filipinos who wish that prayers and masses will be said for their dead loved ones.
