The Radiance of Filipino cuisine: Pansit

Our regions are known for their radiant cuisine, and the Philippines are no exception. With more than 100 ethno-linguistic groups scattered throughout the nation, the country’s cuisine reflects the rich diversity of its residents. 

Noodles are a common ingredient in Filippino cooking, and pansit is no exception. This stir-fried noodle dish is made with fresh cabbage, sliced chicken, and a helping of soy sauce. It’s the ultimate comforting meal. Bonus points for not needing to turn on the oven, so it’ll keep you cool in the summer. 

This dish has also become popular in the island of Guam, one of the Mariana islands in what is known as Micronesia. Residents of the Philippines have a history of migration to Guam, and today, pansit is often eaten on birthdays and New Year’s Eve.

Trapped in the Floods in Germany

José Santos, a Cooperator of Opus Dei, works in a hospital in Niederwenigern, a small borough of the city of Hattingen in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. His dramatic story, similar to that of so many people in Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium during the recent floods, appeared in various Portuguese media sites. He tells it for us in the first person below:

On June 15 at 3 am, loud knocking at my bedroom door awakens me with a jolt. It’s the firefighters from Hattingen.

Frightened, I ask what’s going on. The Ruhr River, they tell me, is overflowing its banks and flooding our residential area.

Praise the Lord
