mother Mary, in Jesus’ name
we implore You to ask
for His blessing and protection
for the millions of overseas workers
across the entire world
who are suffering from oppression
exploitation, and suppression of faith
especially those who are in danger
by expressing their faith
-
dear Jesus, give them the strength
grace, and courage to persevere in You
and to proclaim Your majesty
across the four corners of the world, amen

THE ANGELUS

the angel of the Lord declared unto Mary
and she conceived by the Holy Spirit
Hail Mary ———-
-
behold the handmaid of the Lord
be it done unto me according to Thy Word
Hail Mary ———-
-
and the Word was made flesh
and dwelt among us
Hail Mary ———–
-
pray for us oh holy Mother of God
that we may be made worthy
of the promises of Christ
-
let us pray –
pour forth we beseech Thee, o Lord
Thy grace into our hearts
that we, to whom the incarnation of Christ,
was made known by the message of an angel
may by his passion and cross
be brought to the glory of His resurrection
thru the same Christ our Lord. amen

Email from an Iraqi Catholic –
“I need help. I am Chaldean. We are Catholics from IRAQ who are persecuted for our faith”. As you may have heard, the Muslim extremists bombed a Church in Baghdad, killing 2 priests and 58 believers. “Is there anyway we can set up a rosary rally for Chaldeans? So all can join in? We need help. Please, I am begging you. I am begging you.”
-
The prayer campaign wrote, “Please remember: the Rosary saved Austria from Russian Communists. It can save Catholics in Iraq too. There used to be 1.5 million Catholics in Iraq but only 400,000 remain. They urgently need our prayers!” The Rosary also saved the Philippines from the Marcos dictatorship during the EDSA Revolt.”

Thank you very much for sending all those beautiful pictures from space. The magnitude of God’s creation is truly incomprehensible!! Unfortunately many so-called scientists tried to play GOD but never succeeded! Let us pray for all Catholics in the Middle East (Filipinos and non-Filipinos). They are killed or imprisoned in the Middle East for practicing their faith! I am very desperate for prayers for my nephew Alan . Please pray that he may find peace in his mind. Many times, he tried to find someone to love but maybe he makes wrong decisions. All of his relationships are heartbreaking. He ends up alone, lonely. I just pray he will not harm himself. This happened when his wife left him 10 years ago when she went abroad and had another partner. His wife abandoned him and her daughter K. who never experienced the love of her mother. K suffers from epilepsy and loneliness too. Pls. pray for both of them. It is so hearty-rending to hear her as a child of 6, asking what this happened to her? She said maybe it is better she was not born. Now her father also went abroad to find a good job in the Phil. He ended up in misery too. Also asking for prayers to resolve our land problem which we bought from a very big and reputable who made us believe it has a right of way. We found out there is none. The front lot has enclosed our gate (no exit/entrance. I just cannot believe this corruption in the Phil. until I become a victim. I will lose all the earnings I made the past 10 years suffering the cold and loneliness abroad . Pls. pray that I find a good lawyer !!! This gives me also a lot of sleepless nights. Thank you all Brothers and Sisters of the Prayer Warriors, also Sister Raquel é Bro. Bernie. I know Jesus and Mary will not fail us.

Good day Sister Raquel :
May I request for some healing oil – to be used by my Father, Jaime who is sick and weak for the past month now. He is 86 years old. For my Mother, Ligaya, who is also sick with hypertension and having a heart condition. She is 89 years old. And for the use of other family members, myself – so that we may physically, mentally and spiritually “carry on” the task of taking good care of them, deciding for the good of all concerned. Plus, requests for prayers for financial rescue and spiritual healing – for myself and my siblings, and for those who are directly now helping the family – like our caregiver, Lovely; household help, Jun and Weng, my friend, Girl. Thank you Lord ! Thank you Sir Raquel ! and Thank you Prayer Warriors ! Keeping the faith alive :-)

Clay K. was forced into retirement after a life long career as a police officer & marshall, because of back problems ( degenerative back where it is basically bone on nerves combined with lots of arthritis)that continually worsened and are crippling him to the point that there is no relief from the pain, and he doesn’t want to get hooked on the pain meds so he really uses those very sparingly. But the pain gets so bad with no relief that he’ll wake up at all hours of the night. He is 61 years and a devout Catholic he is asking for prayer.

We are so worried, especially her youngest 4th yr high school male sibling is not yet prepared for what may be the outcome of my sister health condition. Her youngest son, Rolando is not yet prepared to encounter that his mother may die any moment. Her son is quite rebelious due to always ?quarreling scene” of his parents.

Father Lord, I thank thee for the wonderful works and unconditional Love you shower to me. You remain faithful despite my unfaithfulness.  Lord I come to you just as I am; with my sins, failures and petitions. Look at me Lord, see my problems, pity me, have mercy on me, forgive me my sins and answer my prayers. I pray Lord that you remove every obstacle in my life that is preventing me from moving forward. I pray for an open door and open favor. Deliver me Lord from powers of darkness surrounding me. Please Lord, grant that my heart desire (to get into a medical residency training program and practice my profession here in United States as  a medical doctor) be amply fulfilled; Let my wishes (to know you, love you, serve you and use my time, talent and treasure to serve those in need) be satisfied even this day for the sake of Thy Great Mighty and Praise Worthy Name Amen. Lord, show me Grace, Favor, and Mercy in the eyes of those that will make the final decision (program chairmen, program directors, faculty members, and program coordinators) so that they will grant my petition in Jesus Name Amen!

5   HEALING PRAYER AND REBIRTH
By Sister Raquel Reodica, RVM
At 8:00 a.m. every morning, find a quiet place. Attune your spirit to Jesus through His blessed Mother Mary. Read slowly with your heart this prayer. Express silently your deep desire for complete healing. This is your one-on-one prayer with Jesus.
Our Father in heaven, Creator of my body,
wherein I (state your name) dwell and through which I live,
make me realize in the name of JESUS
that my present bodily ailment is a result of my own sins,
my wrong doings, my wrong thinking,
my transgressions against Your laws.
I ask forgiveness, Jesus, for these wrong doings,
and promise to change my ways.
Make me realize, in the name of JESUS,
that Your creative power, which fashioned my body,
is still in me, in my consciousness, in my mind,
ready to serve me at any time of need.
Make me realize that I, in my free will,
now have control over this creative power within me
which I can direct to act for my own well being,
but only if my thoughts and feelings are attuned to You.
In full realization of this,
I NOW CALL UPON YOUR CREATIVE POWER within me,
O Lord God, in Jesus’ name,
to correct and eliminate any and all my bodily imperfections
and diseases and discomforts.
I KNOW AND EXPECT THAT MY REBIRTH
IS NOW ACTIVELY TAKING PLACE WITHIN ME
because of Your creative love and mercy,
and Your healing grace in my every cell
and nerve and gland and tissue and fiber and organ,
especially my: (state any or all sicknesses).
In accordance with my vision
and my active FAITH IN YOU, MY ALMIGHTY GOD,
CREATOR AND LORD, IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST,
THE SON OF MOTHER MARY,
through the intercessions of MOTHER IGNACIA DEL ESPIRITU SANTO
and all Your saints, I am healed. Amen. Amen. Amen
After praying, remain in silence for 15 to 20 minutes in the presence of the Lord, and in meditation of receiving His healing.

Dear Sister Raquel,
I’m here again to ask for prayers. Yesterday, I did something bad that made my boss be mad at me. I lost her trust and eventually I feel that I’m gonna lose the promotion that’s in store for me next year. It is in this light that I would like to seek help in praying for emotional healing. Healing for both us. I may not be able to regain her full trust again but I pray that we may be able to work in a professional level. I also pray that she will not do anything that may harm me in my work, that is, prevent me from working for other group/team in the future. I pray for God’s will as well if the job I’m in right now is still the right job for me. I’m terribly devastated and confused. I did something bad and now, I’m feeling the remorse. I’m afraid of the consequences. I pray for guidance and understanding. I pray for God’s many second chances. Thank you and Merry Christmas! God Bless,

Dear Sister Raquel and Prayer Warriors,
Once again I am requesting for prayers for my mother Raymunda.  She is still at the ICU with pneumonia (and she has stage 4 brain tumor).  This thursday will be her third week in the ICU.  The doctors have been telling us that they need to make a hole at her throat so that it would be easier to suction her phlegm.  Moreover, her being attached to a ventilator may also be a cause of infection.  Please pray for the complete healing of my mothers sickness especially the immediate need for her lungs to be cleared of pneumonia.  Our Lord is our only doctor.  He is the greatest doctor.  We are praying for His help for my mother’s case.  Thank you. By the we tried to go last saturday at the Mother Ignacia Healing Ministry, we would like to request for distant healing, but we were stuck in traffick.  By 6 pm we were only in Fairview.  I hope by next week we will be able to arrive at the healing center smoothly. Thank you,

-
JOSEPHINE
Wala naman. Naisip ko lang, yung matrikula mo for next year. Graduating ka na, di ba? Iniisip ko lang kung saan ko kukunin ang ganoong kalaking kwarta.
-
JESSICA
Ma, pwede ba, wag mong alalahanin yon. Di ba ikaw na ang nagsabing Diyos ang bahala sa atin. Magdasal lang tayo. At saka, pwede namang di muna ako mag-aral ng isang taon hanggang maka-ipon tayo, di ba?
-
JOSEPHINE
Jessica, graduating ka na. Hindi pwedeng i-postpone ang pag-aral mo. Mag-bo-board exam ka pa. Next year, nurse ka na. Nag-alok ang uncle mong bayaran ang pasahe mo papuntang California?
-
JESSICA
Ma, walang kwenta ang California. Anong gagawin ko sa limpak limpak na dollars. Hindi ko kayo kayang iwan mag-isa. Dito na lang ako magtratrabaho. Di ba, yon ang usapan natin? Tayong dalawa laban sa buong mundo. Sinabi mo yon nung maliit pa ako, nung namatay si daddy. Di ba, sabi mo, lahat ng problema kaya natin basta magkasama tayo? Di ba, ma?
-
JOSEPHINE
(Niyakap ang anak nang naluluha) Naisip ko lang. May sarili kang buhay. Magtratrabaho. Mag-aasawa. Magkakaroon ng mga tsikiting, na iyong inaasam-asam. Hindi ka pwedeng matali sa akin. Kaya kong mag-isa.
-
JESSICA
(Lumuluha na rin.) Kaya kong gawin lahat yon pero hindi ko kayang iwan ka. Okay, compromise. Gagawin ko lahat yon, pero magkasama pa rin tayo. Kondisyon yon sa magiging asawa ko. Kung ayaw niya sa iyo, mag-solo siya, period. Deal? (Niyakap ang ina.)
-
JOSEPHINE
Para ka namang si Cris Aquino. E kung sabihin kong no deal?

JESSICA
(Nang matapos ang dasal.) Eto yung manggang hilaw na gusto mo. Pero after dinner yan para di ka ma-ulcer. Lalabas lang ako sandali, bibili ng dinner natin. Wag ka nang magluto at alam kong pagod ka. Okay?
-
JOSEPHINE
Eto ang pera. (Binuksan ang handbag.)
-
JESSICA
Okay lang ma, may natira ako sa baon. Kasi panay ang blow out ni Joey.
-
JOSEPHINE
Sagutin mo na. Kawawa naman yung tao. Ang tagal nang lumiligaw, tapos wala pa rin.
-
JESSICA
Magdusa siya. Pag hindi nagdusa ang lumiligaw, hindi tunay ang pagmamahal. Easy come easy go yan, ma. Maghintay pa siya nang mga isang buwan, tapos okay na. Nasaan na ba yung payong ko.
-

JOSEPHINE
Dapat malaman mo na. Masaya ako dahil hindi ko binigo ang Panginoon.
-
JESSICA
Hindi ko maintindihan.
-
JOSEPHINE
Anak, yung mga Hapon sa bidding sa trabaho ko, binigyan ako ng envelope na may lamang kalahating milyung piso. Hindi ko tinanggap pero muntik na muntik na kasi gusto kong maging nurse ka na at magkaroon ng sarili mong buhay. Pero hindi kaya ng konsyensya ko. Kung matapos ka ng karera sa masamang pera, baka ikaw pa ang ma-karma.
-
JESSICA
Hay, naku, ang nanay kong martir. Di ba sinabi kong pwede naman next year na ako mag-aral. Ano ba naman yung isang taon. Tama yung ginawa mo mommy. Mahirap ngang gawin pero tama. Bilib ako sayo. Bihira ang nanay na ganyan.
-
JOSEPHINE
Alam mo, anak. Nang sinoli ko na yung envelope, may naramdaman akong napakagandang hindi ko mapaliwanag. Para bang magaan ang loob ko. Parang lumulutang ako sa ulap. Para bang wag mag-alala at darating ang kwarta. Para bang Kapayapaan with a capital K. Peace of mind, alam mo. Para bang kalma pagtapos ng bagyo, o tinik na isang taong nasa lalamunan biglang naalis. Never kong naramdaman ang ganoong klaseng biyaya ng kaluluwa.
-
JESSICA
Hindi nabibili ang peace of mind, mommy. Regalo yan ng Lord. Yun ang gantimpala mo dahil hindi mo siya binigo. Inner peace. Mahirap matamo yon ngayon sa ating magulong buhay.
-

-
JESSICA
Bad news ba mommy?
-
JOSEPHINE
Hindi. Good news. Kaya ako napapaluha. Yung scholarship mo approve. Kasama ang libro, allowance, matrikula, dorm. Halagang two hundred thousand. Salamat Panginoon.
-
JESSICA
Kita mo na. Sinubukan ka nang matindi. Hindi mo Siya binigo. Nagdasal tayo. Humiling. Binigay Niya. Sinuklian tayo ng doble. Dinaan ka Niya sa kadiliman, tapos bingyan ka nang matinding Ilaw.
-
JOSEPHINE
Sabi nga sa Bibliya. Kahit mawala ka, kahit maligaw ka, hahabulin ka ng Panginoon. Lahat ng daan patungo sa Panginoon. Lord, salamat sa kabutihan mo.

ENGLISH SUMMARY
-
josephine works at the
department of public works and highways
as a member of the council
that evaluates public bids for big energy projects
that run into millions of dollars
-
a japanese executive from a big multinational
came up to her and gave her a thick envelope
and told her to open it later when she was alone
-
when she got home she opened the envelope
and immediately tears flowed
for she found half a million pesos
money she needed so desperately
for her daughter’s college tuition
she asked for strength from the Lord
the whole night she was in agony not knowing what to do
until she fell asleep, her tears un-dried in her cheeks
-
in the morning her daughter woke her up
and asked what was the matter
josephine looked hard at her
the youth and beauty of her only child
and embraced her tighter than ever before
-
she was in a hurry to return the envelope
to the secretary of the japanese
and left immediately because she knew
she could easily change her mind
going back to work she felt a sense of peace
she had never felt before
a sense of well being very rare
in her life of tension and endless tasks
-
it was a gift from the Lord
-
after a week, the japanese
suddenly appeared in her office
he smiled and gave a very low curtsy
all the way to the waist
in japanese culture the lower the bow
the greater the respect
it was a bow for an empress, a bow of deep respect
except for josephine asking the japanese
not to embarrass her with her low curtsies
no word was spoken and the two smiled at each other
the japanese left and it is almost the end of the story
-
two months later out of the blue
the ‘money’ josephine wanted so desperately
fell on her lap almost like an accident
a full scholarship for her daughter
she knew it was not an accident
it was not half a million, much smaller
but it was enough and her daughter went to college
-
it was a gift from the Lord
she asked only for strength
and the Lord gave her a small fortune
in her moment of despair
a tiny streak of light in the total darkness
He also gave her peace and well being
nothing the half a million could buy
in our darkest moments He is there
if only we grope for Him
in our despair and want He is there
if only we want Him to be
-
even if we are weak
the strength comes from Him
if only we had faith
it is not easy to get lost because
-
ALL ROADS LEAD TO HIM
WHO IS EVERYWHERE
FOR EVERYONE
EVERYTIME WE ASK

-
JOANNA
Kelangang kelangan, Rene. After what you did last night, kelangang kelangan. That was the last straw.

JENNIFER

MONICA
Tama, kuya. Iwan mo na kami para manahimik kami. Hindi na namin kaya. Ganoon ba talaga ang addict. Walang pakiramdam? Walang puso? Walang isip?

-
JOANNA
Merry Christmas, Sister Raquel. Salamat at binigyan mo kami ng konting oras mo.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Merry chirstmas din sa inyo. Kanina pa nga kita hinihintay, Joanna.
-
JOANNA
Eto po ang tatlong anak ko, si Jennifer (nagmano kay Sister), si Monica (nagmano kay Sister), at si Rene (hindi nagmano). Si Jennifer at Monica po nag-aaral sa La Salle. Si Rene naman po ay Atenista.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Kayo ba’y mga honor student naman?
-
JOANNA
Si Monica at Jennifer, sister, mga honor student yan. Si Rene po dati, first honor at top of the class, pero mula nang mapabarkada, wala na.
-
NAPAHIYA SI RENE. TUMALIKOD. TUMINGIN SA MALAYO. NAGNGINGITNGIT SA GALIT. LUMAPIT SI SISTER SA KANYA. HINIGPITAN NI RENE ANG SINTURON DAHIL NAHUHULOG NA ANG KANYANG PANTALON.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
(Nakatingin kay Rene, kamay sa balikat niya) Oops. Sorry ha. Mali ata ang tanong ko. Alam mo, sa totoo, hindi naman ganoon ka importante ang honors. Utak lang yon. Mas importante ang puso. Hindi ako naniniwalang wala kang puso. Wala ka bang puso, Rene?
-
RENE
Meron po, sister.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Pala naman. Halika kayo, dito tayo sa loob ng kubo mag-usap.
-
JOANNA
(Kay Rene) Doon ka muna kaya (sabay turo sa isa pang kubo).
-
RENE
Bakit, hindi ba ako kasama sa pamilya?
-
JENNIFER
Hindi sa ganoon. Doon ka muna sabi ni mommy. Mamaya ka na.
-
MONICA
Oo nga naman, kuya. Pagbigyan mo muna kami.
-
RENE
(Galit) Sige, pagtutulungan niyo ako, uli. Sister, uuwi na ako.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Teka. Teka. Ako ang kakampi mo rito kung kalaban mo lahat. Sige, Rene. Wag kang mag-alala. Makapag-uusap tayo nang masinsinan. Pero sa ngayon, baka naman mas mabuting ipaliwanag ng mommy mo ang problema at ibigay ang panig niya bago tayo naman ang mag-usap sa panig mo. Sa tingin mo okay yon?
-
RENE
(Matagal bago sumagot, sabay hila sa sinturon) Okay naman po, sister.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
O siya, doon ka muna sa kabilang kubo. O baka gusto mo maupo sa loob ng adoration chapel. Tatawagin kita mayamaya. Ilabas mo ang puso mo kay Hesus. Kausapin mo Siya.
-
RENE
Doon na po ako sa chapel, sister. Basta tatawagin niyo po ako.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Oo naman.
-
LUMAYO SI RENE AT ANG LAHAT AY PUMASOK SA ISANG KUBONG MAY UPUANG PALIGID AT MESA SA GITNA.
-
JOANNA
Pasyensya ka na sister. Kailangan lang mapaliwanag namin ang problem ni Rene.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Okay lang. Sige, umpisahan natin.
-
JOANNA
Si Rene po ay matagal nang shabu addict. Tatlong taon na. Nahihirapan na kaming makibagay sa kanya. Naisip naming baka ma-heal mo siya, sister. E kung kaya niyong magpagaling ng terminal cancer, simple lang siguro yan.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Hindi ako ang healer, Joanna. Si Hesus ang healer. Ginagamit niya lang ako bilang isang tulay. Hindi ako ang nagdidisisyon kung sino ang gagaling. Siya. At kailangan kayo ay may pananampalataya. Hindi ako duktor. Siya ang Duktor.
-
JOANNA
Opo sister. Naiintindihan namin.
-
MONICA
Minsan po hindi yan natutulog ng dalawa’t kalahating araw kapag high sa shabu. Tapos ang gulo gulo. Hindi kami makatulog. At hindi kumakain buong araw.
-
JENNIFER
Tapos, pag nag-crash siya, pag nawala ang bisa ng shabu, matutulog yan ng dalawang araw, walang hinto. Tapos, paggising, iinom ng isang litrong tubig at saka palang kakain. Kaya, tingnan niyo, ang payat payat. Yung pantalon niya ang luwag luwag sa baywang at ang higpit higpit ang sinturon para hindi bumagsak. Tapos, tingnan niyo, sister, mukha na siyang 30 years old, e eighteen lang po yan.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Ay, ganoon ba ang epekto ng drogang yan?
-
MONICA
Noong umpisa, pag high siya, masayang masaya, madaldal, magulo, paikot-ikot. Pero pagkaran ng ilang buwan, iba na. Masungit. Madaling magalit sa walang dahilan. Sumisigaw.
-
JOANNA
Hindi lang yon, sister. Last week, nawala ang telebisyon naming. Kala namin pinasok kami ng magnanakaw nung lumabas kaming lahat. Yun pala binenta ng ungas at pinambili ng shabu. Nawawala yan ng isang linggo. Hindi naming alam kung saan. Babalik na lang kung wala nang kwarta. Darating na lang nang payat na payat. Parang nagdiet ng matindi. At parang biglang tumanda. Hay naku sister. Nahihirapan na kami (hindi na mapigil at nag-umpisang umiyak). Hindi naming alam kung anong gagawin.
-
NILAGAY NI SISTER ANG KAMAY SA BALIKAT NI JOANNA.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Hindi makukuha yan sa galit o sermon. May pagkukulang ang kanyang kalooban, kaya siya nagdrodroga. Kailangan malumanay kayong makipag-usap sa kanya. Bigyan niyo siya ng espasyo. At kailangan malaman natin ang dahilan kung bakit siya nagdrodroga.
-
JENNIEFER
Barkada.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Hindi lang yon. May mas malalim pa.
JOANNA
Hay naku sister. Kung alam mo lang gaanong pasyensya namin. Tapos eto na ang pinakagrabe. Kaya kami nagdisisyon pumunta sa inyo sister, a week ago, humingi yan ng kwarta. Siyempre hindi ko binigyan. Ipambibili lang niya yan ng shabu. Nagmakaawa. Umiyak. Lumuhod at nagdrama. Hindi ko pinansin. Alam niyo ba ang ginawa, sister? Kumuha ng kutsilyo at papatayin raw ako kung hindi ko siya bigyan ng kwarta. Hay, por Diyos por Santo. Napilitan akong bigyan siya. Kumaripas ng alis at nawala hanggang kahapon. Pagdating, umiiyak. Lalo namang sinermonan ng dalawang ito, dahil ako, ayaw ko na siyang harapin. Gustong papulis ni Jennifer sa takot. Pinigilan ko lang.
-
JENNIFER
Yun, pala, tangay rin ang jewelry ko, sister, kahit binigyan na siya ng kwarta. Mabuti nga ho sister, pumayag yang sumama rito.
-
MONICA
E pano. Sabi namin, kung di siya sasama, kaming lahat ang lalayas. Tutuloy kami ng Baguio nang isang buwan. Nagmakaawa ang ungas. Hindi niya raw po kayang mag-isa.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Okay, okay, naiintindihan ko na ang problema. May idagdag pa ba kayo.
-
TAHIMIK LAHAT.
-
JOANNA
Wala na po siguro, sister, sa ngayon.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Okay, dito muna kayo. Ako’y pupunta sa chapel. Wala namang tao doon. Mag wa wan on wan kami ni Rene.
-
JOANNA
Hay salamat sister. Bahala na kayo ha. Warning lang sister. Mahirap kausapin yan. Makulit. Kung minsan hindi sumasagot.
-
PUMUNTA SI SISTER KAY RENE NA NAKAUPO. TUMABI SI SISTER SA KANYA.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Tayo naman ang magkuwentuhan, Rene.
-
RENE
Opo.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Pwede bang umipasahan ko?
-
RENE
Opo sister.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Kanina pa, kabababa pa lang ninyo ng sasakyan, alam ko na ang problema. Naramramdaman ko na ang problema. Sabihin mo sa akin kung tama. Napilitan kang mag-shabu dahil inis ka sa pamilya mo.
-
RENE
Tama po. Hindi nila ako pinapansin. Hindi nila ako kinakausap. Wala akong nararamdamang pagmamahal. (Lumuluha na si Rene.) Parang wala akong pamilya.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Wala ka nang dapat sabihin pa. Alam ko na ang istorya. Tena na, tapos na tayong mag-usap. Balik na tayo sa kubo.
-
RENE
Tapos na po tayo? Ang bilis naman.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
O sige. Meron ka pa bang sasabihin? (Matagal nag-isip si Rene.) Nasabi mo nang lahat, di ba?
-
RENE
Opo sister, maliban sa … hirap na hirap na po ako, sister. (sabay hagulgol).
-
SISTER RAQUEL
O siya. Upo tayo uli.
-
NAUPO ANG DALAWA. NILAGAY NI SISTER ANG KAMAY SA BALIKAT NI RENE.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Magdasal tayo, ha. Naryan si Hesus, nakatingin sa iyo. Alam niya ang problema mo. Lulutasin Niya yan kung hihilingin mo. Naiintindihan mo ba? Hilingin mo lamang.
-
RENE
Opo sister.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Sundan mo ang dasal ko. Panginoong Hesus (sunod si Rene sa salita, habang umiiyak), tulungan mo po si Rene na mabitawan na ang droga. (Humagulgol si Rene) Tulungan mo po ang kanyang ina at mga kapatid na bigyan siya nang pagmamahal. Sa ngalan ni Mama Mary, St. Joseph, Mother Ignacia, tulungan Mo po Hesus ang pamilya ni Rene.
-
MATAGAL ANG KAMAY NI SISTER SA BALIKAT NI RENE. UNTING UNTI NAHINTO ANG IYAK NI RENE. KUMALMA. NAGDASAL SILA NANG TAHIMIK. TUMAYO SI SISTER.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Ganito ang gawin natin, Rene. Mauna ako sa iyo. Bigyan mo ako nang sandaling kausapin ko sila. Sesenyasan kitang sumunod. Okay ba yon?
-
RENE
Kayo po, sister.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Kapag kakampi mo si Hesus, kahit kalaban mo ang buong mundo, okay ka. Huwag kang maingay ha. Sesermonan ko ang nanay at mga kapatid mo (sabay tawa, tawa rin si Rene).
-
BUMALIK SI SISTER SA KUBO KUNG SAAN NAGHIHINTAY ANG TATLONG BABAE.
-
JOANNA
O ano sister. Nakita naming umiiyak siya habang pray over kayo sa kanya. Tumalab din ata ang healing niyo.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Huwag kayong magagalit ha. Kayo atang tatlo ang kailangan ng healing.
-
JOANNA
(Gulat) Ha. Sister, anong ibig niyong sabihin?
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Mahirap bang maintindihan na kayo ang dahilan kaya nag-shabu si Rene? Naramdaman niya na hindi niyo siya mahal. Masakit yon. Nag-shabu siya upang mapamanhid niya ang sugat na, sa kanya, ay napakalalim. Napakahapdi. Naisip niyo ba ang pakiramdam ng isang walang pamilya? Nag-iisa sa mundo? Rejected?
-
JOANNA
Pero, sister …
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Tapos, nang nag-shabu na siya, lalo niyo pang binalikan siya, pinalalim lalo ang sugat. Naging vicious circle na. Galit kayo sa pag-shabu niya, at ang tingin niya lalo niyo siyang hindi mahal. (Tahimik ang tatlo. Nakayuko. Umiyak si Monica. Sumunod si Jennifer at Joanna.) Isipin niyong mabuti ang nakaraan. Bago siya ng-shabu. May nagawa ba kayong …
-
JOANNA
(Humahagulgol). Kasalanan ko po, sister. Lahat ng atensyon na sa mga babae. E kasi babae sila.
-
JENNIFER
(Lumuluha). Kahit ang lalaki nangangailangan din ng pagmamahal, sister, di ba? Hindi namin naisip yon. Kasalanan rin namin dahil ang mundo namin sa aming tatlo lang. Hindi namin siya naisip.
-
TUMAYO SI MONICA. TUMAKBO PAPUNTA KAY RENE.
-
MONICA
(Pasigaw) Kuya, kuya … (niyakap niya si Rene) Patawad, kuya. Patawad.
-
TAKBO NA RIN SI JENNIFER AT JOANNA AT ANG APAT AY NAGYAKAPAN NANG AKALA MO AY HINDI NAGKITA NG ILANG TAON. PARANG NIAGARA FALLS ANG MGA LUHA. LUMAPIT SI SISTER. TUMINGIN SILANG LAHAT KAY SISTER.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Pagmamahal ang gamot sa sugat ng pabaya. Tandaan ninyo yan, ha.
-
SAGOT NG OPO, OPO ANG TATLONG BABAE.
-
RENE
(Nagmano kay sister) Salamat po sister at ibinalik ninyo ang buhay ko. Ito na ang pinakamaligayang pasko. Salamat sa Christmas gift niyo, sister. Akala ko patay na ako talaga. Papasok ako sa rehab, kahit isang taon, pangako si inyo at sa mama. Aalisin ko itong lason sa aking mga ugat. Pagdasal mo ako sister, kasi, napakahirap noon.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Ano ba yung rehab?
-
RENE
Rehabilitation center po. Doon dinadala ang mga addict upang mabitawan ang addiction. Parang preso po doon. Di latigo ang mga rehab counselors. Ang tingin nila sa iyo kriminal, basura, kaya malupit sila. Inaabot ng taon bago bumisa ang rehab, sister.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
E paano kang gagaling kung latigo ang kaharap mo? Isa lamang ang lutas sa addict, Rene, pagmamahal.
-
RENE
Yun nga po. Kung minsan, meron ding mabait, parang kapatid, parang nanay. Pero bihira. Karamihan sa kanila, trabaho lang yon. Wala ang puso nila doon. Sa totoo, galit sila dahil napakahirap ng trabahong makipag-ugnayan sa mga addict. Mga weirdo kami. Me sayad. Lumulutang sa hangin. Yung mga hardliners kamukha ko, ganoon talaga kami.
-
MONICA
Pero, kaya mo yan, kuya, di ba?
-
RENE
Sa tingin niyo, sister?
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Walang imposible kung hiniling mo sa Panginoon.
-
RENE
Tatlong kaibigan ko, nag rehab. Yung una, si Ruben, pagkaraan ng isang taon, gumaling na siya. Lumabas na. Success model siya para sa ibang gustong umalis sa shabu. Bumalik sa trabaho sa ad agency. Ayos na ang lahat. Normal na siya. Six months pagkalabas niya, may shooting ng TV commercial sa Baguio. Naisipang purbahan uli. Baguio. Malamig. Masarap mag-high. Hindi niya alam over dose na pala siya.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Bakit, hindi ba niya alam ang limit niya?
-
RENE
Ganito yon, sister. Pag nag-shabu ka, sa umpisa saksakan ng sarap. Tanggal ang depression mo. Masaya ka. Kaya nakaka-addict. Pag na feel kong pinagtutulungan ako sa bahay, shabu ang panlutas. Tanggal lahat ng sugat ng loob mo. Tatawa ka dahil walang kang pakialam, wala nang depression. So, tuwing may depression, shabu.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Pshychological addiction.
-
JENNIFER
At, vicious circle na ang kasunod, di ba Rene? Shabu causes depression pag nag crash ka na. So take ka uli para mawala ang depression. Nag research ako diyan sa Internet. Alam ko.
-
RENE
At alam mo, ate …
-
MONICA
Uy, ngayon mo lang tinawag siya nang ate.
-
RENE
(Hindi pinansin ang sinabi ni Monica) … may tolerance ka na pagkaraan ng mga six months.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Ano yung tolerance?
-
JENNIFER
Ganito yon, sister. Nag-research din ako diyan.
-
RENE
Ako ang magpapaliwanag, ate.
-
MONICA
Uy, may ate na siya bigla.
-
RENE
Tahimik, little sister. Ganito yon, sister. Kung sa umpisa, high ka na nang dalawang araw sa isang gramong shabu, kung mag-take ka araw araw, pagkaraan ng isang buwan, kailangan mo nang doble, dalawang gramo, para sa high ng isang araw, mas maiksing panahon. Dahil may ‘tolerance’ na ang katawan mo. Mas kumukonti ang epekto dahil nasasanay na ang katawan mo. Pagkaraan ng isang taon, kelangan mo nang limang gramo para sa high ng kalahating araw. Hanggang, hindi mo alam, overdose ka na pala. Si Ruben, pagkaraan ng higit sa isang taong walang shabu, nawala na ang kanyang tolerance, pero hindi niya alam yon. Ang huli niyang take siguro mga limang gramo. Overdose na yon kung wala kang tolerance. Dapat nag-umpisa siya sa one gram uli. Pero, sister, walang dapat dapat sa droga.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
So, anong nangyari kay Ruben?
-
RENE
Ayon, nagwala sa Baguio. Sinigawan niya yung cliente, yung presidente ng kumpanyang biggest client ng ad agency niya. Tanggal sa trabaho, siyempre. Eventually, nasiraan ng bait at nagpakamatay. Imbis na singhutin yong rubgy, hinalo sa tubig, ininom, kumisay, patay. Dalawa ang kaibigan kong nagpakamatay after rehab. Tatlo and in and out. Isa lang ang alam kong talagang gumaling, si Jackie, ex-girl pren ko. Pero, hindi ako sure. Five years na siyang okay. Pero, sister, walang garantiyang hindi babalik ang ex-addict sa dating gawi. Kaya sister, takot ako sa rehab. Pagdasal niyo po ako, sister, na kayanin ko ito nang walang rehab.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Kaya mo yan. Di ba sabi ko, paghiniling mo, bibigay Niya. Love conquers hate. Your love for each other will destroy all the deep anger inside you. Magdasal tayong lahat.
-
NAGHAWAKAN NG KAMAY ANG PAMILYA AT SI SISTER. NAGDASAL. PALAYO ANG KAMERA. UNTI UNTING NAWAWALA ANG MGA BOSES NILA HABANG NAGDARASAL AT MARIRINIG ANG MGA AWIT PASKO. UMATRAS ANG KAMERA PATAAS. MAKIKITA ANG BUONG HEALING CENTER AT PARANG MGA LANGGAM ANG LIMANG NAGDARASAL.
-
-
EKSENA 3.
-
ISANG LINGGO NA ANG DUMAAN. HAPON. NASA CHAPEL SI SISTER MAG-ISA, NAGDADASAL. NAG-RING ANG CELLPHONE NIYA.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Hello.
-
RENE
Hello, sister. Si Rene ito.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Oy, Rene, kumusta na. Ano na ang nangyari sa iyo.
-
RENE
May himalang nangyari sa akin, sister, salamat sa iyo.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Sa akin o kay Hesus?
-
RENE
Sa inyong dalawa.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Uy. Magaling ka na. Bilis naman. Kumusta ang rehab mo? Kala ko ba mga isang taon ang rehab.
-
RENE
Yon na nga po ang gusto kong ibalita sa inyo, sister. Hindi ko kailangan ng rehab. Nawala na lang bigla ang addiction ko. Basta, nawala. Ayaw ko na. Cold turkey. Hindi ako nagkaroon nang pagnanasang bumalik sa shabu buhat nung nag pray kami kasama ka. Ewan ko bakit, sister. Instant talaga ang paggaling ko.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Yan ang grasya ni Lord. Hindi kaya bigla kang bumalik gaya ni Ruben?
-
RENE
No way, sister. Matatag na ito. Dahil ang rehab doctor ay kaka-iba, the best Doctor in town.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
At sinabi ko sa iyo …
-
RENE
Opo, sister, alam ko, walang imposible sa Panginoon. Gusto ko ring ibalita na buong buo na ngayon ang pamilya. Hindi na kami nag-aaway. Si Jennifer nagtratrabaho sa bangko. Si Monica first year college na. Sa La Salle pa rin. Ako naman, sister, graduating na sa Ateneo at babalik ako sa number one, pangako ko sa Mommy.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Aba, tingnan mo nga naman. Akala ko cum papasa ka lang, yon pala cum laude na (sabay tawa). Gamitin mo ang galing mo para sa iba, hindi para sa sarili, ha. Kaya ka pinagaling ni Hesus, kailangan ka Niyang. May kailangan kang gawin para sa Kanya. Pagsilbihan mo Siya.
-
RENE
Salamat sister. Ikaw ang dahilan, gumaling ako kaagad.
-
SISTER RAQUEL
Oops. Mali, mali na naman. Hindi ako, sabi e. Si Hesus ang nag-pagaling sa iyo. Ako, Quezon bridge lang. Siya ang rehab Counselor mo, di ba? Siya ang Doktor mo. Siya ang bosing, at walang imposible sa Kanya.
-
RENE
Opo sister.
-
-
ENGLISH SUMMARY
-
Rene, an Ateneo honor student, somehow became a hard-line shabu addict. He had reached a point where he would steal appliances in the house to sell for shabu money. Like Jessie, he would scream at his mother Joanne when he had no money for drugs, and would hit his younger sisters Monica and Jennifer. It reached a point where Rene was capable of destroying the entire family.
In despair, a few days before Christmas, Joanne went to Sister Raquel, the healer, together with her three children, in the hope that one who could heal stage 4 cancer could also heal stage 4 shabu addiction. It was the last resort.
Joanne told Rene to stay away while Joanne, Monica and Jennifer explained the ‘problem’ to Sister Raquel. They were half way through their story when Sister Raquel suddenly interrupted them. She could discern the ‘problem’. She said she perhaps knew why Rene turned to drugs. The three women froze, stunned by Sister’s fortune-teller style move.
Sister asked, could it be perhaps Rene turned to drugs because he never felt love from his family? Sister was actually guessing, but she hit a tender chord. The three women looked at each other, blushed, and bowed their heads without saying a word. Joanne started to cry. Instantly, they knew the ‘problem’. The problem was them, not Rene. They forced him to turn to drugs by alienating him. The family became a ‘women’s circle’. And they knew it as plain as daylight.
Sister Raquel called Rene over and her mother embraced him right away, followed by the two sisters. No words were spoken. Tears speak better than words. As easy as the problem was discerned, it was solved. Mother and daughters began pouring their love on Rene. It was the best Christmas gift he ever had.
After a week, Rene called Sister Raquel and told her he has never taken shabu since they visited her. He was instantly healed of drug addiction, not so much by Sister but by his family. Like Jessie, it was instant cold-turkey stuff. Strangely again, the spiritual gift of Love conquers hate, hate for one’s family, hate for one’s self.

Prayer56 – OF SELF-EXCOMMUNICATIONS AND THE RH BILL

Prayer56 – OF SELF-EXCOMMUNICATIONS AND THE RH BILL
-
This is a reply to the stinging attacks of Mr. John Silva, an admitted gay, against the Catholic Church. Let me begin by quoting his entire letter, so you can discern why he is really so angry, some of which is based on wrong media information. John and I were friends in New York. I had dinner at his place on occasions. I even took a trip to Connecticut with him and his boyfriend. They are nice fellows, very sharp and sensitive. I have no problem with gays. I accept them even if some Church elements condemn them. Let us begin with John’s letter. A few of my comments are inserted in GREEN ALL CAPS.
-
OPEN LETTER TO THE PHILIPPINE CATHOLIC BISHOPS –
EXCOMMUNICATE ME.
-
Dear Bishops,
-
I would like you to excommunicate me. I’ve had enough of your antics, the latest having jailed my RH activist friend Carlos Celdran and threatening to excommunicate our President. (FALSE STATEMENT, LATER CLARIFIED BY THE BISHOP MISQUOTED BY THE MEDIA). So let‘s dissolve this relationship once and for all. I am doing this with a sound mind and have since age 12, not participated in any Catholic practices from going to church, receiving communion and donating to your cause. I’d like to end this relationship with the Church for many reasons but the most blatant are the following:
-
1. The Church is anti-women. It deprives them of information on how to be healthy and to decide how many, if any children they will have. Because of that deprivation, close to 500,000 married Filipina women commit abortions each year. Ironically, your deprivation of their right to know promotes abortion. Many women have died because of this situation so I also accuse the Church of wholesale murder.
-
NOT MALICIOUSLY ‘DEPRIVING WOMEN OF INFORMATION’, THERE ARE ONGOING CHURCH FAMILY PLANNING EDUCATION PROGRAMS, THEY JUST DON’T CARRY YOUR LINE OF THOUGHT, JOHN.
-
2. You condemn homosexuals. I’m one so let’s not pussyfoot on this issue. You think I sin and I think your sin blaming is a lot of malarkey and hypocritical. By keeping quiet, you have allowed priests to have sex with boys. Yet you don’t want me to have sex with my male lover. The Church has a consistency problem. (SO ITS SEEMS YOUR ANGER IS MORE AGAINST THE ANTI-GAYS THAN THE RH BILL PER SE.)
-
3. You now threaten to excommunicate President Benigno Aquino for his stand on providing contraceptives to the poor. (AGAIN, FALSE STATEMENT, LATER CLARIFIED BY THE BISHOP MISQUOTED BY THE MEDIA). Your threat is arrogant and anti-Filipino. You seem to have forgotten that the struggle for Philippine independence was very much anti-clerical. You know what? Spare the President and let him do his job in this area. If you need a culprit just excommunicate me instead since I’m fine with it. You can still fulfill your quota of errant souls.
-
THE CHURCH INDEED PARTICIPATED IN COLONIZATION AND OPPRESSION OF FILIPINOS, TRUE, AND I ALSO CONDEMN THAT, BUT NOT ENOUGH TO MAKE ME LEAVE THE CHURCH.
-
4. You are anti-poor. See No. 3. I’d like to be excommunicated because I want to join the ranks of distinguished individuals like Martin Luther and Galileo who got axed but were later vindicated. I sense I will be vindicated as well but may not see it in my lifetime, so I’d rather have the excommunication done now. I know for sure you will eat crow later. Please inform me when you’ll have the excommunication ceremony so I can attend it and have it on video. I’d like to put it on my blog and on FB. I guess the attire is formal but do let me know if the ceremony will be inside an aircon dungeon or outside near a burning stake. Before you go on with the ceremony, I’d like a few minutes of airtime. I’m going to make fun of your ermine gowns and make mincemeat on your silly ideas of infallibility. For sound bites, I’ll out a couple of your queer priests.
-
I GUESS SARCASM IS GOOD TO DRIVE HOME A POINT, JOHN, BUT IN THIS CASE IT MAY DILUTE RATHER THAN STRENGTHEN YOUR POINT.
-
GALILEO WAS CONDEMNED AS A ‘HERETIC’ BY AN IGNORANT CHURCH FOR SAYING THE EARTH REVOLVED AROUND THE SUN IN THE 17TH CENTURY. AFTER ALMOST 4 CENTURIES, THE VATICAN ACCEPTED HIS THEORY IN 1993 WITHOUT REMORSE FOR THE IGNORANCE OF ITS PREDECESSORS. BEFORE THAT, THE CHURCH CONDEMNED COPERNICUS FOR SAYING THE SUN AND PLANETS REVOLVED AROUND THE EARTH BECAUSE IT WAS IN ‘CONFLICT WITH THE SCRIPTURES’, WHICH NAIVELY SAID THE EARTH WAS FLAT WITH AN ‘ABYSS’ AT THE EDGE.
-
THE CHURCH DID THE SAME WITH DARWIN, CONDEMNED FOR THE NOW-ACCEPTED THEORY OF EVOLUTION. THE IGNORANT CHURCH THOUGHT THAT EVOLUTION WAS IN CONFLICT WITH THE THEOLOGY OF CREATION. THEY DID THE SAME WITH PIERRE TEILHARD DE CHARDIN FOR HIS THEORY OF EVOLUTION OF CONSCIOUSNESS. THE CHURCH EXCOMMUNICATED HIM AND LATER EXTOLLED HIM TO THE HIGH HEAVENS FOR HIS REVOLUTIONARY THEOLOGICAL INSIGHTS THAT MAN’S CONSCIOUSNESS WAS ‘CHRISTO-CENTRIC’. THE CHURCH HAS BEEN DOING IT FOR TWO MILLENNIA, JOHN.
-
I CANNOT CONDEMN THE CHURCH FOR IGNORANCE. I WOULD JUST HELP ENLIGHTEN IT IF I CAN. JOHN, YOU MUST REALIZE THERE IS IGNORANCE IN HIGH PLACES IN ANY INSTITUTION, INCLUDING YOUR WHITE HOUSE AND CONGRESS. NOT ALL IN THE CHURCH ARE GENIUSES LIKE US (OOPS). MY MISSION IS TO ENLIGHTEN THE IGNORANT, EVEN IF THEY ARE CARDINALS OR GENERALS.
-
BY THE WAY, CHURCH IGNORANCE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH INFALLIBILITY WHICH IS THE POPE’S PREROGATIVE BUT ONLY IF HE OPTS TO EXERCISE IT. OTHER TIMES, THE POPE CAN BE PERFECTLY WRONG.
-
And I’d like to tell you all to your faces that you’ve ceased long ago to become the force for good for our country and for the world. Please do not attempt to further pray for my soul or hope for a reconciliation or that I will ever reverse my feelings on the matter. I have long decided to do good for others, to love who I please, and to help in some small way to protect the earth which your Church has been remiss in all these areas. I categorically do not want the slightest association with some man-made contrivance that espouses hate and condemnation and so diametrically different with what I do. You may think you have the ultimate carrot “the Salvation Card” dangling over me when I die. Well Bishops, go eat your carrots. It’s good for your eyesight. You certainly need it since you can’t seem to see the poor around you. Let me call you next week to remind you. I so love pageantry, especially those quaint and ridiculous. Your former Catholic,
-
John L. Silva
-
Dear John,
-
My turn. I received your stinging rebuke of the Church. It was quite emotional and full of anger. I have no problem with people wanting to excommunicate themselves out of sheer anger. My anger is different. It is against the hegemony of the superpower, which I will explain below.
-
There are two ways to react when you are a member of an institution or community which makes deep blunders – condemn or destroy or leave the organization or pray, stay and fight for reforms. You opted for the former. I opt for the latter. We have conflicting prerogatives. Your tirade actually makes me all the more wanting to be a reformist.
-
All organizations are human and subject to errors. The Church is as much human as it is divine, as much ignorant as it is enlightened. Self-excommunications have happened since the Reformation. I have found so many scandalous things within the Church, such as pedophilia being kept secret by the Vatican, or condemnations of great men who were correct. I agree that the Church can be amiss. And I am just as angry as you are, John.
-
However, my attitude is different. Beyond my anger, scandals strengthen rather than weaken my faith. My reaction is prayers and reforms, rather than condemnation. The natural reflex is to bolt the Church in anger, to commit self-excommunication. Your reaction is like Martin Luther’s who started the Reformation during the dark age of the Church. My reaction is like the Jesuits’ who started the Counter-Reformation, putting the Church back on its feet, bringing back the Light, containing the darkness.
-
GEOPOLITICS OF THE RH BILL
-
It may be important to be aware of certain geopolitical factors behind the REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH (RH) BILL. Over and above the moral issue is the geopolitical. The US has been successfully funding abortion bills in Third World countries. The US pours millions of dollars to have abortion legalized in African countries.
-
The US works thru the USAID and the World Bank ADB consortium, and has poured billions in the last decade, trying to legalize abortion to stem runaway population. Some are in the guise of family planning programs. They dilute their arguments to elude Church condemnation. During the Bush era, the US funded abortion clinics across continental America. America wants to legalize abortion worldwide.
-
The US has a sinister motive. It believes that population explosion in Third World nations will result in rapid depletion of resources they want and need. They are not doing it as a favor to us but to themselves.
-
Please read two books. First is EXCESSIVE FORCE – POWER, POLITICS AND POPULATION CONTROL, published by Information Project for Africa, Inc. 1995, PO Box 43345, Washington DC 20010, USA. “An Essay on the Benevolent Superpower, sustainable development, and other other Contemporary Myths” Second is – ROGUE STATE, by Richard Blum, banned in the US, printed in the UK. This book tells all the clandestine operations of the US on a global scale, including Project Echelon, which reads every electronic signal on the planet, your cellphone texts and emails included. These are crunched by computers occupying an entire town in the UK. That is how deep the geopolitical factor is.
-
In the Philippines, they have under their thumbs, thru the release of funds, solons, government agencies, pseudo-NGOs/POs, pseudo-Christian organizations, scientists, professors, and media, to mention a few. They even helped to author the RH bill. They are omnipresent because they have the money. It seems a lot of people who talk and write about the RH bill issue do not know this geopolitical factor and that they are being used by these powerful forces.
