*The Second Plenary Council of the Philippines: Quo Vadis?*
edited by Eric Marcelo O. Genilo, Agnes M. Brazal, and Daniel Franklin 
E. Pilario

The metaphor of “burning hearts” on Pentecost day was used by Archbishop 
Legaspi during the Eucharistic Celebration at the closing ceremonies of 
the PCP II at the Manila Cathedral on 17 February 1991. He said that the 
PCP II experience was our “new Pentecost.” Hearts were burning among the 
participants and it felt like Jesus was talking to them on the road, in 
that journey called PCP II.  But they also knew that is was incomplete.  
Something was missing in that experience: the rest of the Christian 
community who could not be in the San Carlos Seminary Complex during 
those grace-filled days.  There was a realization that “only after the 
proposals of the Council have taken root in the life of far-flung 
communities like Tayum in Abra, Jordan in Guimaras, Banay-Banay in Davao 
will our land be blessed by a New Pentecost.”

In the same spirit of a Philippines “Pentecost-in-the-making,” St. 
Vincent School of Theology (SVST)-Adamson University, in commemoration 
of PCP II’s twentieth anniversary, organized a nationwide conference in 
2011, to revisit and reflect on its impact among our people and chart 
recognizable directions for the future. This anthology of essays written 
by bishops and theologians—in search for the ever dynamic movement of 
the Spirit in our midst—is the fruit of this conference.  It is also the 
second publication in the SVST Interdisciplinary Studies Series.
