The lecture was delivered during an alumni homecoming of the San Carlos Major Seminary in 1998 on the occasion of the formal turning over of the Major Seminary to the Filipino diocesan clergy in Cebu. The year also marked the tercentenary of the Filipino clergy and the centennial year of the Philippine revolution.

It deftly interweaves the three milestones into an interesting story of the life of the Church in the Philippines and the Filipino clergy, with Cebu as its focus and locus. Complete with the individuals who were instrumental to its evolution in the midst of the historical twists and turns, the history of the Church in Cebu is replete with artifacts and lessons for reflection.History often echoes important and still-relevant vibrations for the present times.
