LUCIA RIZAL: Partaker of the Hero's Sufferings

 
Lucia Rizal (1857–1919) is the fifth child in the Rizal family. She married Mariano Herbosa of Calamba, Laguna. Charged of inciting the Calamba townsfolk not to pay land rent and causing unrest, the couple was once ordered to be deported along with some Rizal family members.
 
Lucia’s husband Mariano died during the cholera epidemic in May 1889. He was refused a Catholic burial for not going to confession since his marriage to Lucia. In Jose’s article in La Solidaridad entitled Una profanacion(‘A Profanation’), he scornfully attacked the friars for declining to bury in ‘sacred ground’ a ‘good Christian’ simply because he was the “brother-in-law of Rizal”.
 
In December 1891, the then widowed Lucia was among Rizal’s siblings who were present in their so-called ‘family reunion’ in Hong Kong. She also accompanied Jose when he returned to Manila in June the following year. From July 6 to 15, 1892, Jose however was regrettably imprisoned in Fort Santiago and later deported to Dapitan on a made-up charge that anti-friar pamphlets were found in Lucia’s luggage on board Don Juan.
 
Lucia and Mariano’s children were Delfina, Concepcion, Patrocinio, Teodosio, Estanislao, Paz, Victoria, and Jose. Delfina (1879 –1900) became renowned for being one of the three women (along with Marcela Agoncillo and her daughter Lorenza) who seamed together the Philippine flag. She became the first wife of Gen. Salvador Natividad of the Philippine Revolution. Teodosio (Osio) and Estanislao (Tan) became pupils of their uncle Jose in the school he established in Dapitan.  (© 2013 by Jensen DG. Mañebog)

Lucia Rizal

This is my answer to Ruby Roses' question.

I could say that the Spaniards were so Unfair and so cruel to Rizal Family for treating innocent people like Mariano just like that. 'Di nila dapat na pinaparusahan ang mga taong wala namang gnawa sa kanila.

Lucia Rizal

This is my answer to Ruby Rose Question.

Hindi makatarungan ang ginawa nila kay Mariano because first and foremost, Wala naman gnawang masama sa kanila ang tao. Hndi namn porke't asawa sya ng kapatid ni Rizal na si Lucia eh may kinalaman na siya eh tina trato sya ng gnun. May karapatan namn syang ilibing ng maayos.

This is my answer to Ruby Rose Gohetias' question.

That was very immoral. The Spaniards just showed how rude they are to the Filipinos especially to the family of our dear national hero. We should be grateful not only to Jose Rizal but to his family also because they suffered a lot just for the sake of our country.

This is my answer to Ruby Rose question.

Ang masasabe ko lng eh dapat dn nten pasalamatan ang pamilya ni Rizal lalo na yung mga nadamay at nagsakripisyo. Tinanggap nila ng buong buo ang mga pagmamaltrato at pang aabuso ng mga Spaniards para kay Rizal. They deserved our respect at saludo ako sa pamilyang Rizal.

Question:
Sa tingin mo, tama ba na hindi bigyan ng isang maayos na libing si Mariano Herbosa dahil siya ay bayaw ni Jose Rizal? Bakit?

RIZAL

Ito ay sagot ko sa tanong ni Jerwin.
Sa tingin ko mali yung ginawa nila dahil lahat naman tayo ay may karapatang ilibing ng maayos.

RIZAL

Ito ay sagot ko sa tanong ni Jerwin.
Sa tingin ko maling mali yung ginawa nila na hindi bigyan ng maayos na libing yung bayaw ni Jose Rizal kasi ordinaryong tao lamang naman siya na may karapatang ilibing ng maayos kapag pumanaw na.

RIZAL

Ito ay sagot ko sa tanong ni Jerwin.

Hindi tama yung ginawa nila kasi dapat hindi nila dinadamay yung mga taong malapit kay Rizal kasi kay Jose Rizal lang naman sila may galit.
