TRINIDAD RIZAL: The Custodian of the Hero's Greatest Poem

 
Trinidad Rizal (1868-1951) or ‘Trining’ was the tenth child and the custodian of Rizal’s last and greatest poem.
 
In March 1886, Jose wrote to Trining describing how the German women were serious in studying. He thus advised her: “now that you are still young and you have time to learn, it is necessary that you study by reading and reading attentively.” Perhaps sensing that studying is not Trinidad’s thing, Jose continued, “It is a pity that you allow yourself to be dominated by laziness when it takes so little effort to shake it off. It is enough to form only the habit of study and later everything goes by itself.” Four years later, Trining surprised Jose by writing him, “Dearest Brother: I left the College two years, one month and a half ago.”
 
In August 1893, Trinidad, along with their mother, joined Rizal in Dapitan and resided with him in his casa cuadrada (square house). It is said that Trinidad had once planned Rizal’s escape from his exile. In January 1896, Jose invited Trinidad to return to Dapitan. Jose though had one hesitation: “The difficulty is, whom are you going to marry here? The town is lonely still, for there is almost no one.”
Trining once wrote to Jose: “I have read your letter to our brother Paciano in which you asked how I'm getting along with Señora Panggoy. Thank God we are getting along well and we live together peacefully.” Never married, Trinidadand Josefa lived together until their deaths.
 
Right before Jose’s execution, Trinidad and their mother visited him in the Fort Santiago prison cell. As they were leaving, Jose handed over to Trining an alcohol cooking stove, a gift from the Pardo de Taveras, whispering to her in a language which the guards could not understand, “There is something in it.” That ‘something’ was Rizal’s elegy now known as “Mi Ultimo Adios.”Like Josefa and two nieces, Trinidad joined the Katipunan after Rizal’s death.
In 1883, Trining was in bed for five months, from April to August, being sick with intermittent fever—that kind which rises and falls and then returns, occurring in diseases such as malaria. Astonishingly however, she was the last of the family to die.( © 2013 by Jensen DG. Mañebog)

TRINIDAD RIZAL: The Custodian of the Hero's Greatest Poem

Here is an additional information about Trinidad Rizal.
Before Jose Rizal's imprisonment he told to Trining an enigmatic phrases,""I know that if I fall into their hands, they will kill me. But even if they do that, I will not die." This phrases of Jose Rizal proves true as we keep him to our memory and hearts.

My question about this article, it states here that Jose wrote Trining about her studies then 4 years later she replied stating she stopped from studying, if you were Jose how will you react and what will you say to her?

Additional Information:

ust 17, 1935, almost three months after Rizal's retraction document was discovered, Miss Trinidad Rizal, in an interview granted to the author of Dr. Jose Rizal Beyond The Grave, still repeated, (so they say), what was said in 1913. The old story of the Jesuits' unfulfilled promise… And as a conclusion, when she was asked: "What can you say now about the retraction?", she replied (so it is reported): That the retraction discovered has no truth, in my opinion (yahoo.com).

Question:

Do you think the advice of Dr. Jose Rizal helped Trinidad in his studies? Why or why not?

I got it from http://ufreytag.michel-media.de, the third letter of Rizal from Heidelberg to Trinidad saying, "Since I left our country, I have received only four or five lines written by your hand, one or two insignificant news about you and nothing more."

Why do you think Trinidad often write to Rizal?

ang aking tanong , sa tingin mo ano ang naramdaman ni Rizal sa pagtigil ni Trinidad sa kabila ng pagpapaala-ala niya dito ?

TRINIDAD RIZAL

ito ang sagot ko sa tanong ni Lyssa Teng, Naniniwala si Rizal na kailangan ang pag-aaral sa buhay ng lahat ng tao kaya sa tingin ko ay naging malungkot si rizal para sa kanyang kapatid

TRINIDAD RIZAL

ito ang sagot ko sa tanong ni Lyssa Teng , kahit sino namang kapatid kapag sinuway ka (tumigil sa pag-aaral) ay magagalit ka . tulad nalang ang pagtigil ni trinidad sa pag-aaral malamang pinagalitan siya ng kanyang kuya na si Jose dahil sa katamaran nitong mag-aral

TRINIDAD RIZAL

ito ang sagot ko sa tanong ni Lyssa Teng , kung ako si rizal malulungkot ako sa ginawa ni Trinidad dahil pinagbilinan nito na wag itong tamarin sa pag-aaral dahil sa ikabubuti nya rin ito

TRINIDAD RIZAL

ito ang sagot ko sa tanong ni Lyssa teng , bawat kuya or kapatid gusto lang ang ikabubuti ng kapatid katulad ng kanilang mga magulang so sa tingin ko sumama ang loob, nalungkot at nagalit si rizal kay trinadad dahil pinayuhan niya itong magbasa at huwag tamararin sa pag-aaral tapos malalaman niyang tumigil ito sa pag-aaral.

Additional Info

"Indeed, a little after the death of my brother, the Spanish authorities, the Justice, informed me about his abjuration, telling me that my brother had died within the Catholic religion, after having made his Confession and taken Communion." - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/RP-Rizal/message/14745

Sa tingin nyo, bakit sa dinami dami ng kapatid ni Rizal, si Trining pa ang kasama ng kanyang ina para bisitahin si Rizal bago ito mamatay?

Sagot ko sa tanong ni Edward Anthony V. Guerrero

Sa aking palagay kaya si Trinidad lang ang kasama ng kanyang ina sa pagbisita kay Rizal bago ito mamatay dahil ang kanyang mga kapatid ay may kanya kanya ng buhay at pamilya.

Rizal's letters from Heidelberg (II)

addressed to his family in Calamba, Philippines (1886)

Rizal's third letter from Heidelberg:

Germany, Thursday, 11 March 1886

in the bottom of the letter of Jose to his sister Trinidad....

"It is a pity that there in our country the principal adornment of all women almost always consists of clothes and finery rather than of knowledge. In our provinces, women still preserve a virtue that compensates for their little instruction - the virtue of industry and tenderness. In no woman in Europe have I found the latter virtue in such a high degree as among the women there. If these qualities that nature gives to the women there were exalted by intellectual qualities, as it happens in Europe, the Filipino family has nothing to envy the European. For this reason, now that you are still young and you have time to learn, it is necessary that you study by reading and reading attentively. It is a pity that you allow yourself to be dominated by laziness when it takes so little effort to shake it off. It is enough to form only the habit of study and later everything goes by itself.

I hope to receive a letter from you to see whether you are progressing or not; if you can, write me in Spanish."

Your brother

Dona Trining

as an additional information, based on page 134 of Encyclopedia Rizaliana: Student Edition, a wooden doll wearing abaca cloth was carved by Rizal for his sister, Trinidad using palochina (pine) wood.

Question:
In your point of view, what's the reason behind Rizal's letter to Trining describing how German women were serious in studying?

This is my answer to Clarizza's question

This is my answer to Clarizza's question: Perhaps, Rizal wants those German women to be the role model of Trining, because he already sensed that studying is not Trinidad's thing.

This is my answer to Clarizza's question

This is my answer to Clarizza's question: He wrote that simply because he wants to encourage Trinidad to mimick what the German women's attitude in studying because it will help her improve her studying skills.

This is my answer to Clarizza's question

This is my answer to Clarizza's question: Rizal wants to give advice to Trinidad on how to study seriously because he somehow sensed that Trinidad was lazy.

This is my answer to Clarizza's question

This is my answer to Clarizza's question: Jose Rizal probably wants Trinidad to establish a good studying habit while she was young. Like what Rizal's words epitomize he condemned bad studying habit of laziness.

Question:

What do you think Jose Rizal feel knowing that his sister Trining is not interested in her studies?

Ito ay sagot sa tanong ni:

Ito ay sagot sa tanong ni julius brian,

Sa tingin ko tumigil si Trinidad sa kanyang pagaaral dahil siya ay tamad magaral..:)

Trinidad Rizal

According to groups.yahoo.com, there is a reporter who interviewed Trinidad Rizal and she talks about his about his brother Jose Rizal. She speaks - "I had seen always the most playful among all the sisters. I played most with my brother Jose. But never did understand him. My brother, even as a small boy, was very reserved. Later, when he was an adolescent, he became little communicative and too enigmatic. He would come home and go away without saying a word. We could never know what he was doing or thinking. It is true, he had friends, but I do not believe he was more communicative with them than us. Beside, mamma did not allow us to go with anyone......"

Sa iyong palagay, tamad nga bang mag-aral si Trinidad kaya siya tumigil sa pag-aaral?

Trinidad Rizal

Ito ang sagot sa tanong ni Juana, sa aking palagay oo siguro wala siyang interes sa pag-aaral.

TRINIDAD RIZAL

In addition to this article:
It was said that Trinidad was known to be one of the two sister of Rizal who were in conflict with Josephine Bracken. (Encyclopedia Rizaliana)

In your own opinion, What do you think is the reason why she was in conflict with Bracken "the common-law wife of Rizal"?

Sagot sa tanong ni:

Julius Brian,
Sa tingin ko masyado na maraming problema ang kanilang pamilya noong mga panahong iyon lalo na sa kanyang kapatid na si Dr. Jose Rizal kaya naisipan niya na tumigil.

Trinidad Rizal

Ito ang sagot sa tanong ni Juana, for me hindi naman siguro kasi naguguluhan lang siguro si Trinidad sa mga nangyari hindi siya makapag-focus sa kanyang pag-aaral kaya siya tumigil.

Trinidad Rizal

Ito ang sagot sa tanong ni juanabee, para sa akin hindi naman talaga siya tumigil sa pag-aaral dahil tinamad sya kundi nahihirapan lamang siya siguro sa sitwasyon ng kanilang pamilya dahil sa mga kaguluhan na nagaganap noong panahon na yon.

sagot sa tanong ni,

sagot sa tanong ni julius,
Sa tingin ko tamad talaga magaral si Trining at huli na ng mabasa niya ang sulat ni Dr. Jose Rizal kaya huminto na siya sa pagaaral..
