    • PLS PRAY FOR THE REPOSE OF THE SOUL OF FR.FAUSTO TENTORIO,PIME WHO WAS SHOT DEAD THIS MORNING (8:00AM – October 17, 2011) UPON GOING OUT FROM THE CONVENT (GARAGE), ARAKAN, NORTH COTABATO. TO ATTEND PRESBYTERIUM MEETING. DIOCESE OF KIDAPAWAN.

  2. Years ago in the late 70’s, Fr. Fausto (just arrived from Italy) was assigned to me in Kabacan. He spent some time in Liton to learn the Visayan Language. No doubt, Fausto was committed to JUSTICE and HUMAN RIGHTS. He had seen and lived the martyrdom of his companion, Fr. Tulio Favali, PIME. His ministry was devoted to the Indigenous peoples. He was a strong advocate of their ancestral domain, their self-determination and the IP cultures. I mourned his death… a companion, a friend and a co-worker for the rights of the people who are in the margins of Philippine society. JUSTICE for Fr. Fausto!

    • Probabily he will be buried near the tomb of the other our confrer fr.Tullio Favali (also killed in 1985) in Kidapawan. Let us pray for his soul and for his people in Arakan valley

  3. The Promotion of Church People’s Response join the faithful mourning for the brutal murder of Fr. Fausto. We also join the nation in calling our government to conduct a thorough investigation, put the perpetrators inside the bar of justice and end the culture of impunity in our country. Justice for Fr. Fausto! End Impunity! along

  4. I am upset of what had happened to the Indigenous Peoples Rights advocates and defender priest Fr. Fausto whom we used to call Pops or Padre or Tatay as we treat him as our Father and not as a priest. IP become hopeless and lifeless of his loss. Why are they taken those people who’s work is for us the underprivileged, deprived and discriminated be empowered and stand for our rights and developed our capacity economically and politically?

  5. The senseless killing of Fr. Fausto Tentorio, PIME is another sad incident in the history of the Philippine Catholic Church. It is an indicator that the value and sacredness of LIFE is trampled upon by Godless person. Let justice, peace, unity and love prevail upon us. Let Godly people be united to fight all the evils of this time. May the blood of Fr. Tentorio, the martyr be a continuous blessing to the Missionary Catholic Church and to the people who struggle for the realization “New Heaven and New Earth”… Mabuhay ang nakikibakang Simbahan ni Kristo! Mabuhay and Simbahang Katoliko! Mabuhay and PIME. Mabuhay tayong lahat!

  6. so sad, father fausto used to sleep our home in arakan (allab) when he celebrated mass in our chapel (he loved our home for his stay), actually he was the one of the priest closest to my family. my family known father pops for so long until we departed arakan for the same reason..my mother (Leticia “Tessie” Paras) suffered the same faith… GUNNED DOWN! by an unknown man. during our departure, father fausto bid goodbye for us..wishing all the best for us and said GOD will take care of my family especially of what is the desire of our heart…. that is JUSTICE! praying that justice will be served to you father pops!

  7. He had served the people of Arakan valley well, selfless and generous. He had multiplied many indigenous leaders in Cotabato province, capacitating them to what they are now. He had been a PILLAR for the weak and the poor in Arakan Valley,

  8. I will include in my prayers Father Fausto Tentorio and all PIME Martyrs.
    Please Fathers always be safe and careful

  9. There is no man so greatly mourned among indigenous peoples organization and workers,many religious people today than Father Pops. To us he will be the proverbial Pops,so dedicated in servicing his flock,self-sacrificing,hardworking, generous and discerning and of sharp wit. So understanding but urges us to move on. If he could see us now in our deep grief,he would sure prompt us.

    He have been vocal in issues that plague the indigenous and peasant communities in North Cotabato and Central Mindanao,namely expansion of plantations and open-pit mining that will damage not only the livelihood of hundreds and thousands of Mindanaoans but more so create severe damage to the ecological balance in Mindanao.

    Who could have killed such a man?
    Let us urge this present admin of Pnoy to deliver justice for Fr Pops.
    JUSTICE FOR FR. FAUSTO TENTORIO!
    Justice for All PIME Martyrs!
    God Bless PIME for standing for a mission so good that the evil forces try to cut its sons down.May your tribe increase!
