Charice has a knack for timing. The 23rd is Pentecost Sunday in the Roman Catholic Calendar and recognized by all Christians as the birthday of the Universal Church. To choose that day to celebrate her birthday and, at the same time, proclaim the good news to poor children, is reliving the reality of the early church. To be baptized, confirmed, and to receive the Eucharist on that day is a celebration of the abundance of life that was and is promised to those who hope like her. To the children around her that day, she bears the good news.
