Leila Lopes Puts Angola to the World Map as the first Angolan to win the title of Miss Universe after she was crowned Miss Universe 2011 at Sao Paolo Brazil on 12-August-2011! Miss Venezuela
Vanessa Goncalves failed to regain her title the way Estefania Fernandez also of Venezuela and Ximena Navarette of Mexico did a successful regaining of their titles. Miss Goncalves first runner-up in the original pageant, Catalina Robayo of Colombia also failed to regain her post. Estefania Fernandez, who previously won her slot in 1998, successfully regained her title in 2009 while Ximena(Juliana) Navarette, who previously won her slot in 1995, regained her title last year(2010).Navarette's first runner-up Yendi Philips of Jamaica was on stronghold position as first runner-up both on the original pageant(1995) and the re-pageant(2010). :-)

From George Palaganas:
Shamcey Supsup of Philippines, who was only a semi-finalist in the original pageant made it as one of the top five finalists in the 2011 re-Pageant winning the third runner-up slot,a slot higher than the fourth runner-up for Ma.Venus Raj last year. Raj slipped down to that slot from the Third Runner-Up Finish by Joyce Ann Pengree,Philippines bet in the 1995 original pageant.

From George Palaganas: Observers believed that Vanessa Goncalves failed on her re-title bid for this year's Miss Universe pageant because no one remembers the "Nicaragua brouhaha" in the mid and late 80's anymore! They are even more keen on Miss Catalina Robayo's "kita-puki mo Miss" outfit! :-)

SAO PAULO — Newly crowned Miss Universe Leila Lopes hopes her victory will allow her to assist her native Angola further escape its history of war and impoverishment and said she plans to focus on combatting HIV around the globe.

Lopes, 25, laughed and smiled as she hugged runner-up Miss Ukraine Olesia Stefanko, then felt a crown placed carefully on her head after dazzling a panel of judges with her beauty and impressing them with her brain.

Speaking in a timid voice early Tuesday shortly after taking the crown in South America's largest city, the 25-year-old Lopes said that "as Miss Angola I've already done a lot to help my people."

"I've worked with various social causes. I work with poor kids, I work in the fight against HIV. I work to protect the elderly and I have to do everything that my country needs," she said. "I think now as Miss Universe I will be able to do much more."

George Palaganas Tagle appointed Manila archbishop
October 13, 2011, 6:32pm

MANILA, Philippines — The Vatican has appointed a staunch defender of the Catholic faith as the new patriarch of the Archdiocese of Manila, replacing retired Cardinal Gaudencio Rosales.

Rome picked Imus (Cavite) Bishop Luis Antonio Tagle to head the richest, as well as the most influential archdiocese in the Philippines, making him the 32nd archbishop of Manila.

Tagle’s selection comes at a most crucial time with the Philippine Congress deliberating on a contentious bill on reproductive health which the Catholic Church is opposing.

The appointment was officially announced in Rome at 12 noon Thursday (6 p.m. Manila time).

The Apostolic Nunciature in Manila relayed the information to the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) in a letter.

“I write to inform you that the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI has appointed His Excellency Most Reverend Luis Antonio Tagle, until now Bishop of Imus, as Archbishop of Manila,” said Monsignor Gabor Pinter, charge d’ affaires.

The outgoing Manila Cardinal Rosales was already up for retirement four years ago, when he turned 75, the mandatory age of retirement for priests and bishops.

However, the Holy See deferred Rosales’s retirement while Rome scouted for his replacement.

Rosales turned 79 last August 10 and has served as Manila Archbishop for seven years. He replaced the late Manila archbishop Jaime Cardinal Sin.

With his retirement, Cardinal Rosales said he is looking forward to going home to his home province of Batangas.

“I’m going to Batangas…other people really thought I’m from the Visayas because I speak their language,” said Rosales chuckling.

Asked of his greatest achievement, Rosales cited his encounters with various people, particularly the poor.

“I think it’s having been given the opportunity to get to know the poor more, the good-hearted people, the generous people who continuously help the Church. I thank all of them,” he said.

As the new Manila archbishop, Tagle takes over a powerful post in an archdiocese that, historically, has weighed in on national political issues.

By virtue of its ecclesiastical position, the archdiocese is arguably the most influential local church in the Philippines.

As the new head of Manila’s Roman Catholic Church, he is also likely to be named as the country’s next cardinal, just like his predecessors.

Church observers said the next Manila archbishop faces a crucial role on various socio-political issues, including the controversial Reproductive Health (RH) bill.

Sin played this role to the hilt, leading the bloodless People Power events that toppled the governments of then Presidents Ferdinand Marcos and Joseph Estrada.

But under Rosales, the influence of the Manila archdiocese was tempered, although not necessarily less belligerent.

Rosales has led public protests against the RH bill, although he has achieved minor successes in galvanizing public support, compared with Sin.

Church observers say that under Tagle, Church and State relations may improve a bit, owing to Tagle’s close ties with the Cojuangcos, President Benigno Aquino III’s relatives.

Pope names Tagle as new Manila archbishop
Posted at 10/13/2011 6:27 PM | Updated as of 10/14/2011 7:54 AM

MANILA, Philippines - Pope Benedict XVI has appointed Imus Bishop Luis Antonio Tagle, a known theologian, as the new archbishop of Manila, a CBCPNews report said Thursday.

Tagle, 54, will succeed Manila Archbishop Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales, who served the influential post for eight years.

Archbishop-elect Tagle’s appointment was officially announced in Rome on October 13 at 12 noon (6 p.m. Manila time).

The information was officially received by the Media Office of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) Thursday in a communiqué from the Apostolic Nunciature in Manila.

“I write to inform you that the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI has appointed His Excellency Most Reverend Luis Antonio Tagle, until now Bishop of Imus, as Archbishop of Manila,” said Monsignor Gabor Pinter, Charge D’ Affaires.

Rosales, who turned 79 last August 16, earlier said that the Vatican had already accepted his resignation early this year, and that he was just waiting for his successor to be named.

Born in Manila on June 21, 1957, Tagle took his Philosophy and Theology at the Ateneo De Manila University’s San Jose Major Seminary.

He was ordained to the priesthood on February 27, 1982, at the age of 25.

From 1985 to 1992, he was sent for further studies at the Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. where he earned his Doctorate in Sacred Theology.

Since 1997, Tagle has been a member of the International Theological Commission of the Vatican. In 1998, he was an expert at the Special Assembly of the Synod of Bishops for Asia that took place in Rome.

On December 12, 2001, he was ordained Bishop of Imus. Since then, he has been engaged in many activities. He travels throughout the country in answer to many invitations as a speaker.

At the Synod of Bishops held in Rome in 2005, he was elected member of the post-synodal Council and assistant to Cardinal Angelo Scola, general reporter of this Synod.

Tagle is currently the chairman of the Commission on Doctrine of the Faith of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP).

No date yet has been set for the ordination and installation of the new Manila archbishop.
