The move to approve the RH Bill in the Philippines is one of the most recent of the moral hot potatoes. The Church urges the Filipino Catholics to be firm in opposing the approval of the said bill because it will destroy Catholic Christian morality. The Church stands firm in its protest. Avoid immorality and away from moral sin. The Filipino people are divided when it comes to this issue even among the Filipino Catholics. The said Bill will promote the death of both the body and the soul because people will be prone to unchastely acts like premarital sex, extramarital sex and the worst the abortion of the unborn.
“Life is what you make it” is what a common adage would say. Indeed, we make our own life. We mold our own destiny. We color our own life. We decide for what we think is good for us and for others. However, we cannot ignore that certain factors influence our way of life and affect the way we decide.
In line with this year’s formation thrust, focused more on “community life”, there have been lengthy and in—depth discussions made. We tried to understand community living through concepts and ideas, and seeing their applications in our community. We also tried evaluating life in the community, and discover its meaning and relevance. Still there is much work to be done.
