Torn Between Two Leaders

                               Philippines' President              The Catholic Archbishop

My heart goes for both of these leaders for my dear country. And its hurting to see that these two leaders are in contradiction right now, both aiming for the good of the Filipinos.

I feel that the Church itself have failed these victims of killings also.  I including, being a part of the
Church.  Yes, we have failed to seek the lost.  We have failed to exert effort and really go out after 
them. In our circle of friends, in our neighborhood, we have one or two we know have something to do with drugs and yet what did we do?  We were all contented with the overused line 'Let us pray for these souls', 'I will pray for him/her'.  But do we?  Really?  Its easier to isolate ourselves and play safe, right?  Its more convenient to be with our own chosen assuring friends than to mingle and try to spend time even just to ask 'what's going on with you? how are you?', maybe even scared to even get close with them. So many alibis, so many justifications why we didn't seek the losts in our own circles.

Now, its too late.  The souls that have been suffered by these lost ones are now being avenged for.
The victims of drug addicts who have been raped, have been abused, have been killed, those 
children and family broken by the pushers and all other sorts of victims caused by these drugs made
possible by these lost ones, all these are now being avenged by our President.

I just wish each one of us take time to reflect how we have contributed to the breakdown of our society and be humble enough to admit it instead of pointing fingers on others and directing our angers to our President who is now just cleaning the mess we have done in our country.

God is allowing all these to happen for a reason.  We need to seek Jesus' DIVINE MERCY because that is THE ONLY WAY now to save all these criminals who have brought so much injustices to the innocents.
