The Fourth Queen (How I Played Poker with God)


By: Carlos Tan Fiel

(Carlos Tan Fiel wrote the following story in Toronto, Canada shortly after he learned that he had inoperable cancer of the lungs. He received this life-shaking news on November 4, 1995, his birthday. Published with permission from her sister, Sr. Teresita Tan Fiel, RGS)

My doctor didn’t even mention the word, but I knew what he meant. “It’s the kind that spreads rapidly.”

For several nights, I couldn’t sleep. Kept tossing in my bed with tears in my eyes. “How could you do this to me, Lord?”

Kept thinking hard where I could go for help. Thought of my three sisters who are nuns. “Bombard heaven, bring in the heavenly artillery,” I asked them. I also asked help from my saintly Mama who went to heaven thirty-three years ago.

But somehow, I felt everything would be useless.

Then, the unexpected happened. An angel (he wasn’t dressed like one but I knew he was) appeared to me and said, “Come, He wants to see you.”

“Jesus Christ,” I could not help but exclaim, for indeed it was Him.

He was seated in a simple chair. There was a bare table. He bade me sit down across Him. He looked at me gently, but there was no smile in his face. Then He spoke.

“I see your time is up.” I said yes almost inaudibly.

“Your relatives, both living and dead, are pestering me to give you another chance.” Then He said something about me having so many relatives while He only had John the Baptist.

“I don’t have to listen to them,” He said. “However,” and this time I could detect a twinkle in his eyes, “just to silence them, I’ll give you a chance.”

“Thank you, thank you, Lord,” I uttered as I prepared to rise. But it was not easy as that.

“Let’s see. What have you been doing aside from a lot of sinning and a little praying?” My answer was to look at the floor.

“I see you play poker?”

“Just a penny-ante, Lord, and only with close friends.”

“All right, let’s play poker. If you beat me, I might give you another chance. But if I beat you, nothing else can help you, not even your relatives.”

“Oh no, not poker,” I protested. I wanted to tell Him I was a born loser in that games. Oh well, He probably knew it, that’s why He chose the game.

“Bring me a deck of cards,” He motioned to an angel. I noticed the cards were out of the usual earthly cards of the Bicycle or the Vee brand, but only with a plain letter “C.” I thought maybe the “C” stood for Carlos, my name. Or maybe, for “Christ.” Then, a morbid thought, “Hope its not “C” for “Cancer.”

“Let’s play the Lord’s deal.”

The Lord’s deal? What kind of a deal is that? I know the Lord’s prayer, but I never played the Lord’s deal.

“We will not play for money, because there is no need for money in heaven,” and, after a short pause, “if you get there.” That’s when I realized we were not in heaven. I was probably in a way station and after judgment, I’d know where to go. As if to remind me, He said, “Money is taboo in heaven since that man Iscariot ran away with thirty pieces of silver.”

He explained the deal. Every card would represent a wish. Its value would be weighed by the cards gotten. Two of a kind will increase the possibility of the wish being granted, and more with three or four of a kind. “But,” He said, “we’ll borrow one of your rules. A higher card beats a lower card. So, Ace is the highest, the King is next, followed by the Queen.”

He dealt each one of the five cards. In the meantime, a crowd was gathering and I saw a beautiful lady in blue coming out of a room. She glanced in our direction but continued on her way.

I looked at my first card. It was a queen. The second was also a queen. The third was a deuce, the fourth an ace. But presto, the fifth card was a queen. Three queens! My spirit soared.

“Okay, you declare,” He said.

I showed the first queen. “This queen represents my sister, Sister Anne, a Good Shepherd nun who will celebrate 50 years of service to you this year.”

Then the second queen. “This one represents my sister, Sister Milagros, a nun of the Holy Spirit. She is also celebrating her golden jubilee in your service this year.”

“And the third queen,” I said somewhat triumphantly, “stand for my sister, Sister Celina, also of the Good Shepherd, who has been there for 42 years.”

While I was talking, He opened four of his cards and I saw two aces. But I was not alarmed because I had one of his aces and the chances of his last card being an ace was about one in forty.

So, I readied for the kill. “Look, Lord,” I said, “My three sister nuns have served you for an aggregate of 142 years. And they are pleading for me. I’m only 67 which is less than half of their faithful service to you.”

“Very good speech,” He said. “But before making any decision, let’s take a look at my fifth card.” Slowly, He turned the card.

It was an ace.

“I got three aces. They beat your three queens and your wishes are of no value.”

He said it was time to proceed with the judgment and called St. Peter, asking for my record. St. Peter gave him two sheets of paper. One was very long and the other very short. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw that the long paper carried the heading “Sins.” I supposed the other piece carried a list of the good things I did in life. It was no contest. I didn’t have to be told of the verdict.

“Well,” Christ said, “I’m sorry but…”and there was an interruption.

“I am the fourth Queen.” The interruption came from the lady in blue who was suddenly at my side.

Christ was dumbfounded at the unexpected turn of events. His own mother was on the opposite side. He was speechless.

Finally, He was able to say, “But Mother, I am your son.”

The lady in blue nodded. Then, resting her right arm upon my shoulder, she told Him, “Son, he is also my son.”

There was a moment of silence. Finally, Christ said He wanted to go to another room to study the matter. He gave Peter the two sheets of paper. Then they went away, leaving me alone with the Lady in Blue.

Left alone, I asked her what I did to deserve her help. She smiled and said, “Your rosaries.” I felt guilty since although I had been praying the rosary, I would pray them as if by rote, so mechanically.

But as they left, something shocking happened before my very eyes. As Peter put the two sheets of paper in his back pocket, the Lady in blue so deftly picked up the long sheet. I could never imagine that she would be capable of doing that, even if it was meant for my benefit. The Blessed Mother stealing? As a matter of fact, I could not help myself and blurted out, “You stole my sins. You broke the seventh commandment.”

With the sweetest smile I have ever seen. She reassured me in a conspiratorial tone, “Son, sins can be stolen…if you pray the rosary.” All I could utter was “Blessed art thou among women.”

It’s been some time now and Christ hasn’t come out yet with His decision. But I’m no longer worried and I don’t care. Because standing beside me is the Blessed Mother, with the crumpled list of my sins in her left hand and her right hand resting on my shoulder.

And oh, yes, in my right hand is the rosary!

(On June 11, 1996 in Toronto, Carlos went gently into the good night. He died peacefully, surrounded by his sister, wife, nieces and nephews who were praying the rosary).


Carlos Tan Fiel is the son of Agaton Fiel.

Agaton Fiel, the first lawyer of Ormoc, is the son of Simplicio Fiel.

Simplicio Fiel is the first mayor of Ormoc.

Sibonga, Cebu and the Fiel Clan

Sibonga is a 3rd class municipality in the province of Cebu, Philippines. According to the 2007 census, it has a population of 40,765 people.

Many of us may find our Fiel roots back in this small municipality. The Fiel families scattered around Mindanao descended from the Fiel family of Sibonga.

Before the World War II, many Fiel families left Sibonga. The reason is primarily agricultural. Guimbangco-an, the barangay where most Fiels lived, is a rocky land. Gagmay kaayo ang tubo sa mga mais didto! they looked for greener pastures, and mindanao proved to be the most fitting ground.

Elias Fiel, who was married to Felomina Surposa had 10 children.

These ten children are: Donato Fiel, Aniceto Fiel, Felipe Fiel, Julian Fiel, Nicolasa Fiel, Cristina Fiel, Bonifacio Fiel, Rosa Fiel, Teodoro Fiel and Santiago Fiel.

TEODORO SURPOSA FIEL and one of his brothers, according to oral tradition, courted one woman. The woman did not chose Teodoro. So, when it was decided that they go to Mindanao, Teodoro opted to stay in Sibonga and eventually went to Leyte.

The Joy of Finding Your Roots

CEBU, Philippines - Martin “Sonny” L. Tinio Jr., author of the book Philippine Ancestral Houses, is one of those who are hooked on genealogy. He started tracing the Tinio family tree in 1972. “It was Martial Law and I got bored so I did the family tree,” he said.

But the work was not easy, he said, since he had to go through old records from churches and other government institutions to find information about his ancestors. “The records were so dusty. I think nobody ever opened those books. I was sneezing and even had hay fever. Mainit pa kasi walang aircon,” he recalled. Sonny decided to stop going through old records and do the family tree by interviewing family members. But this method was not also easy breezy! He had to go to the province and interview a long line of people, asking them who their relatives are! Sonny later found out that oral tradition is not reliable. “It was all jumbled up! I realized this when I did the biography of my grandfather, Gen. Manuel Tinio,” he said.

Deciding that church and government records were the most reliable, Sonny and his family hired a historian to research about their family tree. He narrated that the woman they hired had to go to different areas in Nueva Ecija and go through church records in every place. “There was no Family History Center then so the best way to get reliable information is to really go through church records,” he added.

To date, Sonny has 33,000 names in the Tinio family tree and the number is increasing thanks to the LDS Family History Center, which he visited everyday for three years! “I add a hundred names to the list everyday, thanks to the Family History Center, where it is so convenient and so clean. The staff are very accommodating pa,” Sonny said.

Maricel Claudia Alabastro of the Mayo Clan of Lipa, Batangas, is also one of the many who found her ancestors through the Family History Center. “It was February 2006 and Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales, a relative, was installed as Cardinal. We have scheduled a reunion in April and we wanted it to be really grand since it was the biggest reunion of the Mayo Clan. So I decided to research on our ancestors. The Mayo Clan already had a family tree but it was not extensive. So I came to the Family History Center to research. I started with the name of the Cardinal,” Maricel said.

Since the LDS has microfilms of government and church records from all over the country, as well as records from other countries, Maricel came to know that her ancestor was a British soldier, Antony Mayo, from the aristocracy of Great Britain and Ireland, who arrived in Lipa, Batangas together with the British forces during the British Expedition to Manila in 1762-1764. Maricel found that Antony Mayo chose to stay in Lipa, fell in love with Dona Feliciana Casilag and had a child, Don Sebastian Mayo, who became the Gobernadorcillo of Lipa in 1797.

Aside from finding out that she had British descent, Maricel also found out that her ancestors were responsible for the coffee boom in Lipa, Batangas.

But the search for her family was not easy, despite the convenience offered by the Family History Center. “You also have to have common sense. You really have to use your brain and know a little history because there were times when our ancestors had to change their family names. I had to read all the microfilms from Lipa,” she said.

Why look for your ancestors? Family pride is one of the reasons why one traces his roots, aside from setting family records straight. But Sonny said that tracing your roots can also be informative in so many ways. “Family traits, vices and mannerisms stay in the family so you will know what to expect,” he said.

Sister Caroline Fitzgerald, one of the persons in charge of the Family History Center in Manila, said that it is really a golden age for genealogy, “The Filipinos are starting to remember their families.” So far, there are 80,000 microfilms from the Philippines that contain church and government records. There is still a lot to do, she said, when it comes to preserving the records of the world but the volunteers of the LDS are patiently microfilming these records so that these will be shared to all.

One of the more recent records that the LDS in the Philippines has microfilmed were the records at the Manila City Hall, said Ms. Pilobello. “Before World War II, all vital records – birth, death, marriage – were transmitted to Manila. The LDS was able to microfilm the records. We were in the process of digitizing the records when Ondoy hit. It flooded the Manila City Hall and destroyed many of the original records. Good thing na naka microfilm na sila! After Ondoy, marami nang lumapit sa amin, asking us to help them put records on microfilm. But still there are also people, organizations, and even countries that do not allow the LDS to microfilm. But the Church hopes that we will be able to microfilm all records in the world. We are not doing this for the LDS, we are doing this for us all,” she concluded.

Prudencio Fiel gave an interesting anecdote about this picture,

"That picture was taken quite late in the evening and it was almost tme for m/v Ormoc to leave for Cebu. Pabling and Inday were supposed to sail that night for Cebu and they were both anxious to get to the pier. I look so serious beca...use I was uncomfortable in my americana, LMAO. BTW, Dodong was always very scarce with his smile for some reason or another, LOL. Anter was the best looking and very relaxed as always. Loloy also very demure and comfortable. What can I say, my 3 sisters were/are about the best looking family trio in the history of the world, LOL. Papa too very handsome, wasn't he? Last but not least, Mama.... what a beauty!!!
