The Secret Behind Valentine's Day

12:57:00 AM


While most of the people in love today are celebrating or will be celebrating the so-called Love Day, others actually don't. Why? For the reason that they know the secret behind the celebration of Valentine's Day.

So, what is this all about saying that Valentine's Day isn't actually the true meaning of its day of celebration? Well, for sure, you've googled it already and you have found the answer to this secret that is in reality not a secret anymore. According to History or written records about the early flourish of Christianity, February 13 to 15 are the days of celebrating the pagan festivity that is called Lupercalla. If you know the story of Romulus and Remus, then you'd probably know who kept these twins, the mythical she-wolf who lives in a cave called the Lupercal. So, the festival is about it and also to honor the Roman god of shepherds called Lupercus. Basically, it is a fertility festival.

Since it is a pagan practice, and the Roman Christians wanted to Christianized the pagans, the church replaced this celebration to honor one of the saints, St. Valentine. Though, there is a rumor that there were three (3) martyrs who were given the name Valentine or Valentinus. It was around 496 AD when Pope Gelasius delegated February 14 as the day to honor St. Valentine as the patron saint of lovers. Later on, it was removed by Pope Paul VI from the church's calendar of saints. Even though it was removed it was still celebrated until now but not as the official celebration of saints.

Today it is considered a worldwide celebration not just of a saint but of different lovers in the world. Now, will you consider knowing that Valentine's Day is actually the Fertility Festival?

Perhaps we can just simply get the fact from the bible that "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16). I remember reading an article's title "God Did Not Say 'Be My Valentine!'

So, I think it doesn't have to have a date to say that you love that person. It should be every minute of your life. "So love not just for the reason but love because you love."

Jake and Ria In a Love Against All Odds Story In MMK's First Special Offering for the Love Month

11:39:00 PM


This weekend, two of today's great actors, Jake Cuenca and Ria Atayde will play the role of Eddie and Janice, a couple determined to prove their love against all odds, even including doubts from their own family in MMK's first special offering for the month of love. Watch the story this Saturday (February 6). 

Janice is admired by many for her beauty and sense of humor but has no time for love as she has been more focused on managing her own eatery. Things suddenly change when a customer, Eddie, pursues her relentlessly. Their bliss as a couple would not be for long when Eddie’s own mother, Corsing (Malou de Guzman) enters the picture. 


Corsing will disapprove of the two’s relationship because she does not see Janice to be conservative enough to stay faithful to her favorite son. To Corsing, Janice is just a reminder of her own painful past.

Corsing’s doubts will continue even after the two get married and would be the cause of many of their fights. But Janice will do everything she can to prove her worth and love for Eddie. When Corsing’s husband falls ill, it would be Janice who would be by their side.

Will Corsing ever be convinced of the purity of Janice’s heart?

Members of the Dumagat Tribe Made Their "I dos" at the New Love Destination in San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan - The Rising HeARt

11:31:00 PM

Members of the Dumagat Tribes, Twenty-five (25) pairs to be exact, exchange their vows at the newly unveiled love destination of the future in San Jose Del Monte (SJDM), Bulacan. The Dumagat Tribes are one of the many Indigenous People in the Southern Luzon area, and some of them are settled in this part of Bulacan, The Rising City.

Under the leadership of Mayor Arthur Robes and his partner on and off Public Service, Congresswoman Florida "Rida" Robes, the first-ever Kasalang Bayan happened at The Rising HeARt marker, which is part of the bid to be recognized as one of UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN). It is meant to be a perpetual reminder to all of us that the world, despite the chaos, will always be governed by peace, love, and compassion towards one another. It is accompanied by a heart-shaped structure that serves as a love lock repository just like the ones that you see in Paris and Korea.

The Mass Wedding or the "Kasalang Bayan" is the initiative of Team Robes in bringing the sanctity of marriage to their fellow San Josenos, especially the ones who cannot find the means to spend money for such union. Just like what their Tribe Leader, Mr. Benjamin San Jose said in an interview, "ito po yong hiling ko sa ating Congressman at atin pong Mayor na mabigyan po kami ng pagkakataon na magkaroon po ng kasalang tribu po sa amin. Dahil sa nakikita ko po nung aking panunungkulan... yong kanilang pamumuhay hindi nila maisakatuparan ang pagpapagawa ng kasal. Kaya sa pamamagitan po nito... dahil sakop sa kanilang pamumuhay ay hindi nila maisakatuparan yan dahil kinakapos sila sa pang-araw-araw... kaya ito po ang aking ginawa na tanging pamamaraan upang mabigay ko na tulong sa kanila..." According to Mr. San Jose this is his way of helping his tribesmen by asking the good Mayor Arthur Robes and Congresswoman Florida "Rida" Robes for a mass wedding, which was granted and made extra significant because it was held in a special place few days before Valentine's Day.

"This is just one of the many ways for us to embrace the indigenous peoples who are part of our community," said Mayor Robes. "They can continue with their traditions but, at the same time, they can be part of the bigger community. They're one of us. Officiating a wedding ceremony for them is a great honor. I thank them for letting me become a part of their special day."

The couples, who wore their tribal ensembles, exchanged their "I dos" and Mayor Robes made their unions official.

Mayor Robes stated, "The Rising HeARt marker is really living up to its name. The mass wedding happened at the perfect time, as Valentine's Day is already very near. There's no better way to celebrate it."

Christian and Karylle, who exhibited undeniable chemistry in the musical West Side Story and international series The Kitchen Musical, is set to bring their magic in the concert stage.

They will dish out memorable love songs of different themes in the show- from falling in love to heartbreak to reconciliation and moving on.

An elaborate The Kitchen Musical medley was also prepared for the show. “Christian and I are so alike in so many ways,” admits Karylle. “We have always been good friends and I am excited to do this show with him and the other talented artists who will join us.”
