Happy Centennial Celebration to #INC from a Catholic
At 9pm today, I attended the last mass at St. Peter’s Basilica along Commonwealth Avenue. The priest before he ended the mass and before he gave his blessing announced about Catholics converting to Iglesia ni Cristo, because the former don’t have enough knowledge of their faith, among others.
In short, he was discouraging the people at mass to convert to INC. How timely, now that the INC is celebrating its centenary.
Why can’t such priests be like Pope Francis? Huffington Post reported, “Pope Francis has made another gesture to Catholics who have fallen away from their faith, saying he respects them but that God is waiting for them” (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/01/06/pope-francis-fallen-catholics_n_4548647.html) - No condemnation, no judgment. Let us be inclusive and NOT exclusive.
To that priest at St. Peter’s, was that appropriate? Besides arguing the constitutional right to freedom of religion, it isn’t you (priest) who will say what is best for a person when it comes to his faith. If he converts to Buddhism, Muslim, INC or Born Again, let him be. Siya lang makakapagsabi kung ano ang mas nakakabuti sa sarili niya. Let us respect other religions please. #kainis #MWMO My Wall My Opinion.
#TVKFinals Just my opinion. Since it says in the photo caption that “children especially the child artist are sensitive to competition and losing” they did not show the percentage breakdown of votes. If that is the case, they shouldn’t have shown the “ranking”. “Ranking” and “percentage of votes” have no difference, as both insinuate competition and can affect the child artist emotionally. The ranking can also influence the viewers when they vote (may pre-judgement na).
This is my picture with my supervising lawyer, Atty. Reginald Wan, a Government Corporate Counsel of OGCC. He gave me the difficult task to argue in a legal opinion why HSBC employees must be given benefits after being involuntarily separated despite being contractual. I made the legal opinion in May. Yesterday, July 18, 2014, he greeted me with the good news that the HSBC employees will now be given benefits by COA (Commission on Audit), though not P2.5M we are asking for but atleast amounting to P1.5M.
This is my first success where my legal work became fruitful. Though I wasn’t paid a single cent, the sense of fulfillment and happiness outweigh everything else. Thank you Lord for your Wisdom! #OGCC #Law #UPLaw
