Reply To: THE UNSEEN, UNWARRANTED RISK POPE FRANCIS HAD TO FACE

Sadly, with the good Pope visiting our predominantly Catholic nation, I just could not comprehend how we as Filipinos can be the most uncaring people. We see and experience poverty on a regular and daily basis and yet, for as long as it does not affect us directly, most do not care. We still continue to support corruption as a way of life and make it look like its okay. We pray regularly but do not seem to see that hunger is all around us. While some of us are okay, most Filipinos are below the acceptable poverty level. Religious persecution exists and there is always vying for dominance. For as long as we as a people allow these, how can we even be deserving of a Papal visit if our Catholicism is only for show? Perhaps we need to look inside each of us and question our own spirituality and perhaps improve, even just a little so that in the eyes of God, we can be worth His blessings! After all, being a Christian indeed involves being Christian! God bless the Philippines!!
