Political mode muna mga kapatid!
I have mentioned in one of my posts that the most-read entry in this blog is the “Grain of Desert Sand” and I’m happy that it is for a cluster of reasons. First, it is a Spirit-guided creative, personal reflection. Second, it is Scriptural. Third, it is both religious and political. Lastly, it caps what this blog is all about, again, to convey the irrelevance at times, the humble admission of the shortness of human efforts or institutions before God who always summons us to “go deep and lower our nets.” Last night, while watching the evening news, I was all the more elated how this post resounded with the Chief Justice Puno’s call for a moral force in this country. Then this morning, The Daily Tribune had this headline of a prelate’s admission on how the Church has failed in her moral mission. The admission came from the most politically involved prelate of the Hierarchy – Bishop Deogracias Iniguez. To quote him:
“It seems our evangelization of the faithful is not that deep enough, especially in terms of their role to the country and the society,’’
Meanwhile, UNICEF continues to report that 11 Filipino women die of childbirth each day. I believe a “deeper look” at the current policies and their “shortness” will help us appreciate and mainstream interventions known to be effective and applied successfully in other countries.
Fare forward, yutang batoon (rocky land) matud pa sa mga Boholano!
