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.
Last October 10, 2015 the Diocese of Pasig held the 3rd Pasig Catholic Mass Media Awards. Among the winners was Communication Foundation for Asia and Family Matters TV’s special production “Mga Pastol sa Sabsaban (Pagninilay Para Sa Pagdalaw Ni Pope Francis)” under the category Best Long Film.
“Mga Pastol sa Sabsaban” reflects upon the recent visit of Pope Francis. It explores the idea on “What would you tell Pope Francis if you had the chance?” The video special stars two students — Vonn (played by Lance Raymundo) and Dorcie (Jamie Jalandoni) who interviewed ordinary citizens of different social standings about what personal statements they would share with the Pope, were they to have a one-on-one with him. Along the way, Vonn and Dorcie reflect on the answers they get, and how these relate to the teachings of Pope Francis.
