If you are a TikTok user you probably have ran into some great inspirational and religious content from a very charismatic and humble individual, Father Fiel Pareja. A few weeks ago Father Fiel, based in the Philippines, had an idea to also release his own podcast with longer-form content in order to help nourish the faith of all of his Catholic followers (over 1 Million of them!). His new podcast is called may kasAMA ka! (which translates to “Walking with the Father”), is now available on all podcast streaming platforms. This is the first Catholic podcast in Tagalog and specifically aimed at Filipinos all around the world.
You can listen to Father Fiel Pareja’s may kasAMA ka! podcast on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and also on the Tabella Catholic App!
Here is his latest episode:
While we continue to build the social network for Catholic communities, we wanted to release things to the world that continue to help us achieve our mission of bringing the world closer to the Catholic faith and God.
In this busy world we live in, it is sometimes challenging to find time to read the Bible and learn from the Gospel. We believe that listening to the Word of God daily can help all of us in our journeys toward becoming better people, loving him, and serving him. That is why we have made it easy for you to listen to the daily Gospel readings in accordance to the liturgy of the Catholic Church.
You can listen to our Daily Gospel Readings on:
The daily Gospel is also available in Spanish:
We hope you enjoy them and listen daily.
In short, Tabella is a Latin word that means “small board” or “writing tablet” or “picture.”
Now, if you would like to know a bit about how Tabella became the name of our Catholic social network and faith content application, here is a brief history:
I have always been a fan of short and unique names for applications, products, and services. As a teenager and into my twenties, probably like many dreaming entrepreneurial young adults, I would always think of names and buy domains – always hoping to potentially sell them in the future… but till this day I have to admit I have never made a single dollar from what I always thought were brilliant names. Naming products and services was relatively natural to me and I got tons of practice while helping train hundreds of entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley. However, when it came to naming what is now known as Tabella, I became very frustrated with the process as nothing felt right. I thought of dozens of names, ran it by family, friends, and potential users of our religious social network – and even though many of them loved a few of them, it still did not feel right.
Around the same time that I attended my first Latin Mass at Star of the Sea Catholic Church in San Francisco and fell in love with the extraordinary form, I had a realization that the name for what will become the #1 application used by Catholics to stay connected to their Catholic community and grow in their faith, needed to be a Latin word. In a way, to point toward the beauty of the Roman Catholic Church’s origins.
I spent hours looking through a Latin dictionary. I think I must have read a thousand Latin words and their definitions. Some definitions were awesome and inspiring, yet the names had strange pronunciations that would never catch on. By the time I got to the words starting with the letter T, I was starting to get a bit discouraged. And all of a sudden, there it was: Tabella.
Tabella: In gen., a small board, a little table or tabletS. C. de Bacch. Corp. I. R. 196
Given that our application is a social network for Catholics to write and communicate with their parishes and each other, the name seemed perfect. And personally, it means a lot to me that I found the name around the same time that I fell in love with our more traditional Catholic roots.
