Philippiniana Sacra welcomes you to its new website.

Technology and the internet are tools you cannot ignore at this time if you wish to have wider reach to people around the world. Just as the journal is serious with its mission so is its engagement with researchers and knowledge-seekers in the ecclesiastical disciplines such as philosophy, sacred theology and canon law. The website features its online submission form, and its platform that allows contributors to track the status of their submissions and researchers to search for back issues. The website also posts updates and announcement, and it also provides information about the people behind the journal.

Philippiniana Sacra would like to thank Santo Tomas e-Service Providers (STePS) of the University of Santo Tomas, Manila for their valuable assistance. We invite our visitors to have an exciting journey with us in their pursuit of Veritas. After all, as Thomas Aquinas would tell us, our mind is naturally inclined to the truth.
