Is it the Truth?; ii.) Is it fair to all Concerned?; iii.) Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?; and iv.) Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?

"We have to live without regrets, live by the moment, and to give more than just receiving," the mayor underscored borrowing from a priest's homily and further reminded the show of super service challenge to all City Hall employees.

He said, life is unpredictable so must always give our best, citing the sudden death of former City Councilor and Barangay Basak San Nicolas village chief George Rama.

The mayor bared that George's remains will be brought to the Cebu City Hall for public viewing and a Necrological Service tomorrow February 3 Tuesday, adding that the interment is also scheduled tomorrow at the Cebu Memorial Park in Barangay Banilad.

Meanwhile, the Mayor also shared that the city will lobby to the Supreme Court the Commission on Audit’s (COA) issuance of notices of disallowance to Cebu City officials and employees.

Vice Mayor Edgardo Labella enlightened everyone that the distribution of the P20,000 calamity assistance to the city hall employees in December 2013 has a solid legal basis and was done in good faith.

Recently, COA ordered the City Hall officials and employees who received the assistance to reimburse the city’s coffers amounting to P84.4 million.

Furthermore, Mayor Rama has tasked the City Legal Office on the matter and urged the city hall employees to pray and to do their job well. (Cebu City Public Information Office/Greggy Jiggs P. Senados)

(CEBU CITY - Public Information Office) - The Cebu City Government through the Fort San Pedro Management Office and the Office of the Mayor celebrates the 5th commemoration for the Feast of the Our Lady of Fort also known as Virgen de la Cotta y de los Remedios de Cebu, last December 18, 2014, Thursday at the Fort San Pedro.

A con-celebrated English Mass was offered and led by Msgr. Ruben Labajo, the parish priest of the Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral. Right after the Eucharistic celebration, a solemn procession was carried out along the vicinity of the Fort San Pedro and the jogging area around the Plaza Independencia.

Cebu City Mayor Michael L Rama who graced the annual event pointed out in his message the importance of faith and devotion. He likewise urged everyone to continue the devotion every year, and likewise to attend the Misa de Gallo especially in the Carbon Market Area.

Meanwhile, history reveals that the Virgin of the Fort is the oldest Cebuano Marian devotion dating back to 1570 to 1575, when an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary was found in a well inside Fort San Pedro. It was believed that it was the very same image that Magellan gave to Queen Juana of Cebu on April 14, 1521 right after her baptism.

The small image of Mary carrying Child Jesus in her arms was enshrined in a chapel inside the Fort, and became known as the Our Lady of the Fort or Virgin de la Cotta. The water of the well where the image was found was said to have provided cure to various ailments of devotees who prayed to the Virgin and drank the water.

Looking back, Rama led the city government employees, devotees, and respected members from the academe and the media among others in enshrining the Virgin of the Fort to its original location last December 18, 2010, coinciding on her feast which is every 18th day of December.
