The Priest's Sermon

Yesterday I learned a very good lesson.

We were at our regular Sunday schedule when I "unexpectedly" saw Dela Vega.

Aside from that unexpected meeting, the Antipolo Cathedral Priest also paid a visit to our wonderful church. He was doing some promotion to spread and invite youngsters to go and serve God.

Father Santos, the priest, has a very interesting homily that day. He began by sharing what happened during their lunch at the Cathedral. Another priest told a story of his childhood through a can of liver spread. He told the others how he enjoyed playing different Filipino games and how it filled his childhood memories with a smile. And father Santos wondered why today's youth don't find those things interesting anymore. That PsPs and Nintendo Wiis make up for the word F-U-N. He was asking himself if he was just dreaming or is he really facing reality. Are PsPs worth 20,000 pesos really enough?

We can say that change is inevitable. But are we changing for the good or it's just the other way around? One of the hottest controversies is regarding the reproductive health bill by the government. The priest pointed out his opinion and was kind of unsweetened on the comments they received after opposing the said bill. He asked if the use of condoms to prevent the birth of a child was good, and if premarital sex was considered a "good thing" already.

The priest honestly told us that he would rather stay on the old-fashioned way than being hip and modern at the same time destroying his morality.

Lastly, he asked if God's Ten Commandments also innovated during modernization and that catholic authorities should just throw old one and make a less conservative commandment.
