Launched in 1980, Gospel Komiks has been synonymous with Catholic education, teaching and explaining to Filipinos the challenges of the weekly Sunday Gospels through the easily understandable medium of comics. Today, Gospel Komiks will reach new heights in having inspired a new TV show entitled, “Gospel Komiks TV: Mga Kwento ni Ate G”
“Ate G” with the Kids
Gospel Komiks TV: Mga Kwento ni Ate G is a 30-minute children’s show centering on values derived from Gospel stories, using storytelling and art as main tools for interpretation. The show stars Ate G (played by Carla Lizardo), who tells stories to children from a ‘GK book’, a book inherited by her family from a travelling missionary. From it, Ate G reads stories that children can learn lessons from. The GK book takes its stories from the Bible.
The first season of Mga Kwento ni Ate G will soon air on TV Maria. The exact dates and time of their showing will be posted soon.
In union with the Church in celebration of the coming 51st International Eucharistic Congress, the Communication Foundation for Asia has published “The Eucharist and You: A Visual Guide to the Heart of Our Catholic Faith.” This Gospel Komiks special edition aims at giving readers a better understanding and appreciation of the Blessed Sacrament.
The magazine focuses on the most essential aspects of the Eucharist by explaining the real presence of Christ using miracle stories. It inspires every Christian to make the Eucharist part of his or her life by living for Jesus and expressing love to one’s neighbors.

Back in the August-September 2014 issue of Gospel Komiks and Gospel K Magazine, we challenged our readers to make a poem about their love for Jesus. A poem made by a grade 9 student from Saint Michael Academy of Catarman, Northern Samar caught the eye of our writers and editors. Written by Regine Valerie Arcebuche Arninio, the poem is an honest and open expression of her love and relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ.
My Best Friend Jesus
I know He’s always there for me, even though I couldn’t see.
I know that He’s inside my heart
and no one can be able to break us apart.
When I am lonely and depressed,
He’ll comfort me and make me feel blessed.
And when I cry due to my fears,
He’d make me stop and wipe my tears
He comforts me when I’m sad,
He’s also there when I am glad.
He calms me down when I am angry
and teaches me how to say sorry.
I’m so lucky He’s my best friend.
I know His love for me will never end.
And I also want to let you know,
my best friend Jesus is your best friend, too.
Stay tuned for more contest from CFA Magazines!
