Award-winning author and humanitarian Lourdes Duque Baron is set to reach the shores of the Philippines for her grand book relaunch of ” Scripted in Heaven”. The book launching event will happen at Casino Español de Manila a club that was established in 1893 by Spaniards who are living in the Philippines. It was previously an exclusive venue for recreational and social activities and opened its doors to Filipino members to foster Spanish-Filipino Ties. The historical area for the book event is located at 855 Teodoro M. Kalaw Avenue, Ermita Manila.
Scripted in Heaven follows the journey of Dr. Robinson V. Baron and his physical and metaphysical healing. As a stubborn surgeon, he ignores a cryptic warning from an old lady about a supposedly imminent complication with his health. The struggles that follow take him to a journey of spiritual renewal, which leads him to rediscover his true faith and his true love. He seeks for the divine guidance of Padre Pio da Pietrelcina while trials and tribulations test him and his family.
His devotion grew, even causing him to embark on a punishing pilgrimage to San Giovanni Rotondo in Italy, despite his fragile health. His mystical metamorphosis is a story of courage, sacrifice, and triumph. It inspires the reader to reflect on his own weaknesses and makes him long for purpose and Truth in this mortal life. “Who can assure us that we will be alive tomorrow? Let us listen to the voice of our conscience, to the voice of the royal prophet: ‘I will not enter the gates of Heaven until all my spiritual children are inside!’ Let us not put off for one moment to another what we should do, because the next moment is not yet ours!” Saint Pio da Pietrelcina Somewhere in the process of putting this book together, I had a self-realization: the lost soul that I desired to save belonged to me. And so, while I penned the simple truth of our great trials and tribulations, I found God speaking to me. I found myself in the middle of a transformation.
It was March 16, 2011. I had just finished reading The 33 Doctors of the Church by the Capuchin author Fr. Christopher Rengers, O.F.M. Cap. It was an account of the lives of saints who shaped the hearts and minds of the Catholic Church.
