The Mother of Manny Pacquiao
« on: December 06, 2010, 05:10:31 AM »
Editorial: The Bohol Chronicle

December 8 (this Wednesday) is a Holy Day of Obligation for Catholics to commemorate the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.

That date is nine months after September 8, the Blesssed Mother Mary's feast of the Nativity. And as we all scripturally know, the conception of Jesus was an "immaculate" one and that Mary, the Mother of God was "preserved from all stain of original sin."

Marian devotees are in the millions worldwide, fully cognizant of the maternal role of Mary in the birth and growth of the man Jesus and as Mediatrix today, as the Intercessor of God's children with the Father. Such is the recognition that in at least one country Panama - December 8 is also celebrated as Mother's Day.

Filipinos, in particular, have a different attachment to their mothers, sometime far closer than their bonds with their fathers. A certain element of super glue binds children and mothers together. Examples are many.

We have seen Aling Dionisia, mother of Manny Pacquiao, devote all her life to grow her siblings by her lonesome as she was largely a single mother.

This motherly love was not lost on Pacman who tried from a very young age of 12 to help her mother make ends meet by doing various odd jobs.

In an interview with Channel 4, the 8-titled world boxing champ said "unbeknownst to my mother, I was already boxing at a young age in our place." He got P100 for winning and P50 in losing boxing bout. He gave to his mother his earnings.

At age 14, Manny asked permission to supposedly transfer to nearby Digos to work. The truth was he was recruited by a boxing promoter, along with many others, to try their luck in Manila.

While waiting for their bouts, they did odd jobs. Manny did household help and car cleaner of one client who would give him some money for the effort worth say P300.

Manny, the entrepreneur, did not waste this cash which he instead parlayed to make sampaguita garlands and "sold them in many Manila and Bulacan churches during weekends."

When the investment reached P1,000 - the Pacman sent them all to her mother in Mindanao. The next years were not any different.

Mommy Dionisia has been a recipient of the bounty of the billionaire boxer Manny - gifted with houses, cars, jewelries, bags, vacation trips, and fancy clothes - almost anything money can buy.

The grateful child in Manny remembers all the hard work of his industrious mother.
Pacquiao is one of the richest boxers ever. And every Filipino, promoter, boxing fan and bettor want him to go on fighting - for the wonder and the financial rewards of it.

But there is one person - who fainted in his last fight and could not bear watching the boxing bouts of Pacman even on television in General Santos. It is the person who aches and feels the every punch that a son would get. That could only be a mother.

The suffering mother wants her beloved son to retire from boxing. The only human being who genuinely feels so. Only a mother can feel that way for a son.

On December 8, let us all therefore remember not just the Blssed Mother but all the courageous, loving and diligent mothers of our lives.

Where would we all be - without them? Shalom!

"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
