LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness…” (1 John 1:9, the Holy Bible).
SUE THE POWER MANIPULATORS! If he has the evidence, Trade Union Congress Rep. Democrito Mendoza should now file economic sabotage cases against government officials and private power producers whom he says are conniving to create an artificial shortage of power in Mindanao, and thereby enable themselves to charge higher electric rates.
If what he is saying is true, Mendoza owes it not only to his position, and to the people that elected his party, to charge those conspiring to milk our people with higher power rates, but even to God. Fact is, Jesus, our God and Savior, already warned greedy businessmen with eternal damnation if they will not “moderate their greed”.
In Matthew 26:16 of the Bible, Jesus said: “What would profit a man to gain the whole world and yet forfeit his soul? What could a man give in exchange for his soul?”
DISCRIMINATION VS. PNPA? Did the media goof on the 2012 graduation ceremonies for the Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA)? I mean, there seems to be no report at all that President Aquino attended the PNPA rites last Sunday, March 25, 2012. All the reports that came out dealt only with the female valedictorian of the graduating class.
Perhaps, the President was not really there, even as he was very visible at the graduation exercises for the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) just a week ago. What is this---discrimination against the PNPA? Are we seeing the evidence that PMA remains the favored institution?
SEC. ALCALA MUST DO A KING SOLOMON: Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala must do a King Solomon on the issue of increasing the price by which the National Food Authority (NFA) must buy palay from farmers which, at present, stands at P17 per kilo.
If he does not agree to increase NFA’s buying price, on the ground that it could trigger a chain reaction of higher prices in other commodities, Alcala must somehow help farmers lower the cost of producing palay, so they will remain happy with the P17 per kilo price. How can we do this, Mr. Secretary?
7TH CABUSTAM YOUTH CONGRESS: I salute the organizers of the “7 CaBuSTaM Youth Congress” which will gather thousands of young people from Cagayan De Oro City, Butuan, Surigao, Tandag and Malaybalay for a triennial conference in Butuan City on April 11-15, 2012.
Indeed, all efforts to deepen our children’s education on spirituality must be lauded and thoroughly assisted, for this in accordance with Proverbs 22:6 and Ephesians 6:4 of the Bible. But then, why is this kind of a conference being held only once every three years? This should be done more often, Fr. Remel Mag-usara, SSVJ. Surely, the Roman Catholic Church has the funds for these kinds of endeavors?
