PAGING DR. RIZAL IN BARCELONA


Fellow Knights all over the globe,

I wish I have the time and resources of Sir Lucien patiently tracking down Dr. Rizal' whereabouts in Europe that one author aptly described Rizal, "the wandering Jew".

The attachment that is ready to download is an attempt and hopefully there is something to gain for your weekend reading.

PAGING DR. RIZAL IN BARCELONA

Sir Fran Pulumbarit, KGOR, took this picture below when we were in Barcelona, Spain. The book on display is Leon Ma. Guerrero's award winning biography of Dr Rizal, "THE FIRST FILIPINO". I brought the book along when I joined a pilgrimage tour that includes Spain.

Incidentally, It was in Barcelona where Rizal wrote his first literary work in Spain, titled "Amor Patrio" meaning "love of country". It appeared in "DIARONG TAGALOG", Manila's daily using a pseudonym, "Laon Laan". When he moved to Madrid and joined the Freemasons, Rizal chose "DIMAS ALANG as his AKA name. His other alias he used writing articles for La Solidaridad is the pen name, "MAY PAGASA".
