Alive to the World Book Series

The Episcopal Commission for Catechesis and Catholic Education (ECCCE) chaired by Archbishop Socrates Villegas of Lingayen-Dagupan, in collaboration with the Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines (CEAP) and Rex Publishing Company, has launched a 12-volume book series for children and youth.

Titled "Alive to the World", the book series was presented during a press conference called by Archbishop Villegas at the Bishop Cesar Maria Guerrero Hall, Archbishop's Residence on Jovellanos Street in Dagupan on Monday.

Centered on 12 books that can be used in or out of elementary and secondary schools over as many years, the course presents an ongoing story about a group of friends who confront typical situations as they grow up.

The program makes young people think about choices and consequences.

At age appropriate levels, they have to consider family, friendship, peer pressure, romance, sex, love, marriage --and implications like loyalty, team work, personal responsibility, and respect for property, to name a few.

Over time, they learn that universal values make sense that they form a coherent system and, most importantly, that they open up a world of possibilities of health, happiness and progress.

This book series on personal, social and health education has been tested successfully in Latin America, the United States and the United Kingdom.

Archbishop Villegas admits that this is a pro active response to the steady deterioration of Catholic values among the youth.

"The Church is not an institution. The Church is a teacher and caretaker of truly positive universal human and Christian values.

The books teach about sex and family in an age appropriate manner and using universal human values. Even non-Christians can benefit from the book series.

The books contain pro-life messages which are quite timely because of the current move to pass the Reproductive Health bill in Congress.

"I encourage all our Catholic universities, colleges and schools to avail of the book series from Rex Publishing Company and start using the series when the school year opens in June," said Archbishop Villegas.

Romans 10:9-10
"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."
