About Us

Founded in 2006, the St. Gabriel of Calbasag Foundation provides humanitarian and other assistance to the families of Barangay Calbasag of Julita, Leyte, Philippines.


Rationale:

The St. Gabriel foundation is a non-stock charitable institution duly registered in the United States whose aim and purpose is to extend help to the less fortunate people of Julita Leyte, Philippines. We do so by empowering them to shape their own destiny as good citizens of the world.

Mission:

Moved by the poverty of the people of Julita Leyte, Philippines and our strong belief for the sanctity of the human life and the call for humanitarian charity, the foundation is committed to make a difference in the life of the poor. We do so by providing them potable water to drink, sustainable agriculture, scholarship for the out of school youth and income generating projects that would augment their meager income. The following are the actual proposals to fulfill this dream.

The St. Gabriel of Calbasag Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) non profit organization headquartered in Ohio with a satellite office in Barangay Calbasag.

    Our Beginnings

    " Nanay Ester "

    Ms. Ester C. Ortega, a native of Brgy. Calbasag, Julita, Leyte, Philippines paid a visit to her hometown after years of stay in the United States of America. She went to the US to seek for greener pasture and ensure best family support she could give. God blessed her and she did not fail. Her simple dreams were fulfilled and felt she has nothing more to ask but not until she went back to her hometown. She realized that her responsibility is not just towards her own family but there is a great calling from the community. Her vacation reunited their family. Lot's of gifts/pasalubongs were given to family members that include groceries, clothings, school supplies, and stuffs. She was amazed that in their private family reunion people flocked to their gathering. Non-relatives also came to welcome her with cheerful greeting and asked for pasalubongs too. She was generous enough to give each of them a pack of gift.
    Ester couldn't forget the happy faces of those who came with endless words of thanks as they were handed with the pack of gift. The event developed a strong spiritual and personal connection to the warm people of Calbasag. Thus, this foundation is begun.

    St. Gabriel, the Archangel

    St. Gabriel, the Archangel

    "Patron of Communications Workers"


    The name Gabriel means "man of God," or "God has shown himself mighty." It appears first in the prophesies of Daniel in the Old Testament. The angel announced to Daniel the prophecy of the seventy weeks. His name also occurs in the apocryphal book of Henoch. He was the angel who appeared to Zachariah to announce the birth of St. John the Baptizer. Finally, he announced to Mary that she would bear a Son Who would be conceived of the Holy Spirit, Son of the Most High, and Saviour of the world. St. Gabriel is the patron of communications workers.
    The Jews venerated Gabriel as the angel of judgment, and in both Jewish and Christian tradition he is one of the seven archangels. Gabriel is also known to the Mohammedans, who believe him to be the angel who served as the mouthpiece of God in dictating the Koran to their prophet. Mention of St. Gabriel occurs four times in the Scriptures. He first appears to Daniel in the guise of a man and proceeds to interpret a vision Daniel has had of a ram with two horns, which is overcome by a he-goat. Gabriel explains that the ram is the empire of the Medes and the Persians which will be destroyed by the he-goat, the king of the Greeks (Alexander the Great). This vision came to Daniel in the year 554 B.C., while the Israelites were in captivity in Babylonia. The prophecy was to be fulfilled nearly two hundred years later. The angel Gabriel again appears to Daniel (Daniel ix, 21-27) to fore tell the coming of the Messiah and the destruction of Jerusalem and its sanctuary. The next appearance of Gabriel is recorded in Luke i, 11-20, where he predicts to the priest Zachary as he is burning incense at the altar in the temple that his wife is to bear a son whose name shall be John. The final mention of Gabriel is found a little later in the same chapter of Luke, where he goes to the Blessed Virgin Mary with the tidings that she is to be the Mother of the Messiah. Thus we see that Gabriel comes as the bearer of good tidings and as the comforter and helper of men. In Milton's , book iv, Gabriel is placed at the eastern gate of Paradise as chief of the angelic guards. Christian tradition holds that Gabriel was the unnamed angel who appeared to Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. A fresco of this angel figures prominently in a chapel on the Appian Way, indicating that he was honored very early in the history of the Church. The Hebrew word from which Gabriel is derived means "hero of God."

    Prayers to St. Gabriel, the Archangel

    O Captain and Leader of the armies of heaven, unworthy as we are, we beseech you without cease to surround us with your intercession and cover us beneath the shelter of the glory of your ethereal wings. We bend our kneee and cry out with perservance: "Deliver us from danger, O Prince of the Powers on high!" Amen.


    You Angel of humanity, you trusting messenger of God, open our ears also for the quiet warnings and calls of the most loving Heart of Jesus! Always be in front of our eyes, we beg you, that we understand the Word of God correctly, that we follow, obey and fulfill that which God wants of us! And assist us in staying awake for when the Lord comes to get us so that He does not find us asleep! Amen.


    Saint Gabriel the Archangel, I venerate you as the Angel of the Incarnation, because God specially appointed you to bear the messages concerning the God-Man to Daniel, Zechariah, and the Blessed Virgin Mary. Give me a very tender and devoted love for the Incarnate Word and his Blessed Mother more like your own. I venerate you also as the "Strength from God" because you are the giver of God's strength, consoler and comforter chosen to strengthen God's faithful and teach them important truths. I ask for the grace of a special power of the will to strive for holiness of life.


    Steady my resolutions; renew my courage; comfort and console me in the problems, trials and sufferings of daily living, as you consoled our Savior in his agony and Mary in her sorrows and Joseph in his trials. I put my confidence in you. Saint Gabriel I ask you especially for this favor: (mention your request). Through your earnest love for the Son of God made man and for his Blessed Mother I beg of you, intercede for me that my request may be granted, if it be God's holy will. Pray for us, Saint Gabriel the Archangel, that we may be worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen.

Amen.


    To Saint Gabriel, for Others

    O loving messenger of the Incarnation, descend upon all those for whom I wish peace and happiness. Spread your wings over the cradles of the new-born babes, O thou who didst announce the coming of the Infant Jesus. Give to the young a lily petal from the virginal scepter in your hand. Cause the Ave Maria to re-echo in all hearts that they may find grace and joy through Mary. Finally, recall the sublime words spoken on the day of the Annunciation -- "Nothing is impossible with God," and repeat them in hours of trial -- to all I love -- that their confidence in Our Lord may be reanimated, when all human help fails. Amen
