MANILA, Philippines---Nesthy Petecio may be the top women's featherweight boxer in the world's amateur circuit, but she's not about to take her opposition lightly in the coming 2019 Southeast Asian Games. Petecio won the gold medal in her division in the 2019 Aiba Women's World Boxing Championships in October but she is not letting that accomplishment get to her head.

It came when he was asked how much of Spurs' current struggles in the Premier League was a result of the disappointment of the Champions League loss to Liverpool in the final in June? "I don't know," Mourinho flashed back, "because I never l...

Inquirer Breaking News - Fri, 11/22/2019 - 21:58
BANGKOK - Pope Francis ministered to Thailand's tiny Catholic community Friday, urging Thais young and old to practice their faith with joy and with "a Thai face and flesh" in an overwhelmingly Buddhist country.     Thousands of Thais welcomed Francis as he traveled to St. Peter's Parish, a Catholic community outside Bangkok, to pray at the sanctuary of Thailand's first martyred priest.   There, he told a few hundred priests and nuns that he read "with some pain" that for many Thais, Christianity is "a religion for foreigners."   "This should spur us to find ways to talk about the faith in dialect, like a mother who sings lullabies to her chil...
