The Peace of Christ be yours. We had our 2nd Filipino Saint, Pedro Calungsod canonized in Rome on October 21, 2012 by Pope Benedict XVI yet many Filipinos still do not know St.Pedro and his life and works. Pedro Calungsod, a Cebuano, was merely thirteen years old when he traveled with Padre Diego Luis de San Vitores S.J. to the Marianas islands (now Guam)as a catechist. He was martyred at the age of seventeen defending the life of Padre Diego and defending the faith. The National Commission on the Canonization of Blessed Pedro Calungsod commissioned 29AD Musicionaries headed by Bob Serrano to come up with a musical that will make young Filipinos aware of a youthful martyr’s sacrifice of his whole life for his faith. The musical presents St Pedro Calungsod as a role model for our youth. We believe they will find inspiration in his life and death that could be life changing for them. The musical entitled “Teen Saint Pedro” is a refreshed version of Msgr. Rudy Villanueva’s “Scenes from a Martyrdom” staged in Cebu honoring Pedro Calungsod in the 1990’s. Teen Saint Pedro has been staged in the University of Sto Tomas Albertus Magnus Theater (September 28) and at the Meralco Theater (October 16-17). Makisig Morales, an ABS CBN talent and a Youth For Christ member will take the lead role as Pedro Calungsod. The rest of the cast and crew are all from Couples for Christ community including Singles(SFC), Youth(YFC), Kids for Christ(KFC) and Handmaids of the Lord. The entire team performed pro bono. Teen Saint Pedro, the Musical, will leave a song in the hearts of all Filipinos to ensure that St Pedro Calungsod’s life and works will be remembered, honored and imitated. Celebrate with us God’s great gift to the Filipino
