Reflection: Height of Indecency, Foolishness – – BY FR. JERRY SABADO, O.Carm
Height of Indecency, Foolishness by Fr. Jerry Sabado, O.Carm
The process to seek the truth is arduous. The hearing at the House of Representatives (HOR) Committee on Justice is frustrating. The numbers power prevailed over the strength of truth and morality.
Congressman Pablo Garcia of Kampi likened Gloria to Jesus. But, only to distort the gospel truth in his effort to dampen the pieces of evidence presented at the impeachment hearing against his patron- Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. We, of the Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation- Order of Carmelites expressed disgust at the sacrilege.
To compare Jesus to Gloria is the height of indecency and foolishness.
Congressman Garcia must review the life of Jesus Christ in order to see his own blunder.
Jesus popularity grew daily (Jn 7:31). He was becoming more and more outspoken and daring (Lk 11:45-52) When he called them hypocrites or blind leaders, he stood his ground. “You know , he told the people, that among the nations, rulers lord it over the people and use tyrannical power, and still consider themselves to be benefactors ( Mt. 20:25, Lk 22: 25).
What we know is that, Jesus proclaimed the truth. However, Gloria never tells the truth. She is using the executive privilege to hide the truth, she used the lapse in judgment as an alibi when it was discovered they have connivance with Garci [Former Commission on Elections officer Virgilio Garcillano]. She praised [Jovito] Palparan, the butcher of activist as a hero.
Jesus’ sphere of influence was among the simple and poor people (Jn 7:49). This was why, he spoke so often of the poor and poverty, saying that his kingdom was for them (Mt 5:3). He discredited the authority of King Herod, to the extent of calling him a “fox”. On the other hand, Arroyo’s influence is among the rich. Instead of helping the poor, she chose to burden the poor with the EVAT [expanded value added tax], eroding further their purchasing power. The people who satisfied her whims and caprices are all satisfied while denying the poor with basic services.
Jesus was persecuted because of his compassion for the poor, deprived and exploited while Arroyo persecuted political activists and human rights defenders including church people.
Jesus is dead. But he was raised from the dead, thereby confirming the prophetic witness that he had given of the Reign of God. The impeachment is dead. This kind of death signifies doom. Doom for the truth. After Jesus died, the Jews and those against him went back to their homes satisfied and at peace. When Arroyo’s allies killed the impeachment, the corrupt president is satisfied: Job well done!
