The First Bishop of Occ Mindoro is Gone..

On August 18, 2007, the Most Rev. Vicente C. Manuel, SVD, DD took his place in the Kingdom of God.
He was more or less 70 years old -- 24 years of which he was a bishop -- when he expired.
According to him, he lived a long life. Yes, if one considers the impact that his episcopate had in Occidental Mindoro. He built the seminary. He had the AM radio station. He served the farmers.
He's such a man of passion..
As his remains goes home on Friday, August 24, 2007, I will be happy to see him home..
I knew the man... that is why...
