This week in Ateneo Physics News:
I do not think I am the best person to speak about Fr. Vic for the Manila
Observatory—but in the spirit of obedience, I will attempt to do so. I
would also like to take this opportunity then to speak on behalf of the
Physics Department, as well.
I think it may be appropriate to speak about Fr. Vic from the experiences
of the persons he worked in the Observatory. I have Genie Lorenzo (RA of
ITD) and Pope Sugon (present head of UAD) to thank for gathering the
thoughts of many whom I will try to incorporate in this sharing. As a
framework for this, allow me to use a guideline from a contemporary of Fr.
Vic, Mr. Onofre Pagsanghan—“a something to do, a someone to love, and a
Feast of Simon and Jude, Apostles and Saints.
We are told that we know almost nothing of Simon and Jude, except that they
were apostles- those chosen and sent by Christ- to proclaim the Good News.
It is fitting that this last wake Mass of Fr. Victor be held on their feast
day. Very little is known of him , for most of us. When I put the notice of
his death on the bulletin board of our Jesuit residence in Davao , I was
usually asked : “Who is he?”.
