Beinte Singko-Festival of memories: Sr. Mariani Dimaranan, sfic

Sr_Mariani_smallOn September 21, 1972, President Ferdinand Marcos declared Martial Law. It was his way of quelling the rising tide of protest against the inequitable economic policy of his administration: “The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.”

Faced by this worsening threat to the life and existence of the multitude of Filipinos, the Biblical passage- “You cannot serve two masters at one and the same time… God and Money…”- must have plucked a main chord in the heart of Sr. Mariani Dimaranan, a religious Sister of the Franciscans of the Immaculate Conception (SFIC).

Her zeal for the Creator who created all peoples – men and women – in their Creator’s image knew no bounds. And mindful of the danger of her own life, she rose to defend and uphold the rights of all peoples.

Logo2_copy_smallChallenged by the galloping spread of human rights violations, the Association of Major Religious Superiors in the Philippines (AMRSP) established the Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP). Acknowledging Sr. Mariani’s evangelical option for the poor, the AMRSP fittingly recognized her as the TFDP Chairperson from April, 1974 to September, 1996.

Rising to her leadership role in the TFDP, Sr. Mariani very soon became identified synonymously with TFDP and a symbol of the collective courage of people who bravely stood for human rights and resisted state terrorism.

[Excerpts from the Foreword of Bishop Julio X. Labayen, O.C.D., D.D., Chairperson of TFDP Board of Trustees, in the book “Mariani, a woman of a kind” Published by TFDP in December 2002]
