Repay evil with kindness.

Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle made this call on Sunday as millions of Filipino Catholics flocked to churches to mark Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week.

In his homily at San Fernando de Dilao parish in Paco, Manila, the cardinal urged the faithful to put an end to the “cycle of sin and injustice” in society by repaying evil works with acts of kindness.

“Evil will spread if we answer it with another devilish action. To put an end to evil, we must be like Jesus. Repay it with kindness and avoid acts that will harm others,” Tagle said.

“Let us accompany Jesus in his journey to Jerusalem. Let us accompany him in our daily lives by doing acts of kindness and helping others,” he added.

Like other priests in Catholic parishes across the country, Tagle also blessed the palm fronds that the faithful took with them to Mass.

Catholics bring along palm fronds to church during Palm Sunday to commemorate the Bible story of Jesus’ triumphal entry to Jerusalem.

According to the Gospels, people laid their garments in the path of Jesus and waived palm fronds as he entered the holy city riding a donkey.

“They were welcoming him because they thought he was going to be a military or political messiah who will bring out them out of Roman bondage,” said Church historian Fr. Emil Quilatan, OAR, noting that the Jews were at the time under Roman rule.

“But when they realized that he was carrying a spiritual message, they mocked him and had him crucified,” Quilatan added.

Learn from Jesus

In the Philippines, many Catholics believe that the palm fronds blessed during Palm Sunday are effective in warding off evil, fires and even lightning. The faithful place them on or above the main door of their houses or in their altars to keep their homes and family safe.

Keeping to his Lenten theme of “journeying with Jesus,” Tagle urged Catholics to learn by Jesus’ example.

“Let us not join him by just taking home our palm fronds. More than anything, to remember Jesus is to embrace him in his fullness, including his death,” Tagle said.

“You know what, someone even wrote to me asking for prayers so that her husband would meet with an accident. She was trying to make me an accomplice in asking God so that her husband would have an accident,” he said.

“Maybe her husband did something evil but if that is repaid with evil, how will it end?” Tagle added.

Surrender to God

Tagle said society bore the marks of many evil deeds, noting that even during Holy Week, vacationers are reminded to lock their homes when leaving to prevent burglaries.

“What do we hear on the radio during Holy Week? We are reminded to keep our homes safe if we go to Mass or if we go out of town. Imagine that, it’s Holy Week and we are warned against burglaries,” he said.

Tagle also noted that Catholics were celebrating Holy Week this year while the universal Church was marking the “Year of Faith” proclaimed by former Pope Benedict XVI.

He said this should remind the faithful to “surrender their lives” to God, like what Jesus did before he died on the cross.

“We want to control our lives but even when Jesus was still young and until his last breath, (He was saying), ‘Father, in your hands I commend my spirit.’ We need that,” Tagle said.

“If we leave in the hands of God our lives and do his will, maybe a new life will spring forth from us. As we begin Holy Week, let us be like Jesus. Let us praise him and follow his example,” the cardinal said.

    REPAY EVIL WITH KINDNESS???? IS this the reason why the Marcoses are still getting elected by the Filipinos ( Ilokanos)??? No wonder this country is falling apart.

    • xrisp

      Brother, let man’s law handle its own but most importantly let God’s laws handle our hearts. Jesus taught this theme of kindness so many times so believe and trust it. We are not meant for this world but for our real destiny waiting for us in eternity. So let’s all be good that God may be merciful on us all.

      • JV Salud

        But the billions they stole are still being enjoyed by the living Marcoses. We shouldn’t get that money back because of the esoteric idea of an afterlife?

      • xrisp

        If man’s law ever would fail, there is the final justice waiting for us all.

      • Luthmar

        How would we know that those who did evil things get punished after death?

        Look at the Marcoses, they continue to live like they did nothing wrong to the Filipino people. The family totally raped the government coffers. Imelda Marcos should be languishing in jail but she still continues to live like a queen. When is she due for her “final judgement”?

      • xrisp

        Our God is both love/mercy and justice. While we are still alive it will be very prudent to avail of the love/mercy of God by always acknowledging our sinfulness before Him and asking for His forgiveness because when we die it is no longer the love/mercy that one shall face but the justice of God.
        The evildoers are only fooling themselves if they could get away with their evils while here on earth because of the power of their money. They should be able to realize that it is better to suffer here for a while than to languish in condemnation in eternity.

      • magiting78

        If the law of man fails to bring Marcoses into justice, but the law of God surely will not fail..

    • Magsasaka

      evil politicians get elected because of ignorance, there are too many ignorant voters and pinoys.

      What’s keeping us in the state of ignorance?it is the dogma of RCC the keeps us ignorant, the more that we know nothing, the more that they have influence over us.

      • cowan2325

        it’s the evil politicians who make laws, not the RCC…and the law they make allows erap to run as mayor, allow gma to run as representative..allow anybody who has pending cases to run for elective office..they don’t want to pass any form of the anti-dynasty…etc…it’s not the RCC who takes advantage of the ignorant amongst us…it’s the evil politicians…and i think RCC even help the people identify who the evil politicians are…right?

      • AlexanderAmproz

        Do the RCC is helping thank’s fat envelops and Pajero’s ?

        In case you are enjoying to be fools, it’s not the case of the others.

      • cowan2325

        maybe…maybe not…

      • Magsasaka

        it is the RCC that wants us ignorant

        papaano mo nasabing dogma ng rcc ang kaya maraming ignorante , ei halos wla na nga may alam sa dogma ng catholic church, kunti nalang nagsisimba , saraling kakagawan ng mga tao kaya siya nagiging ignorante tulad mo

      • Magsasaka

        ano masasabi mo sa aral ng RCC na “poverty is a blessing”?, sabi ko naman sa iyo bago ka sumabat mag isip isip ka muna dahil nagmumukha ka talagang mangmang

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Shirley-Emz/100002942795402 Shirley Emz

        blame the other religion for endorsing corrupt politician, do not blame the RCC for being ignorant ,

      • Magsasaka

        i blame you for being ignorant hehehe

    • boldyak

      for now, as what the Cardinal said, I have to pay your evil acts with kindness, MAY YOU REST IN PEACE..sooner the better…

    • lucidlynx

      oo nga. tama ka jr18496. repay evil with kindness? what kind of a dimwit of an archbishop tagle is? everyone should answer and pay for their sins. you can’t erase sin just by doing something good. there has to be punishment. kaya nga may penance.

    • virgoyap

      They are taking Jesus’ message literally. Kindness and forgiveness without justice is sham and hypocrisy. Genuine kindness must also make the culprit answerable for their wrongdoings.

  • TinimbangNgunitKulang

    Following the Cardinal’s words, let us forgive and forget the evils of the Marcoses, the Arroyos, the Ampatuans, Corona, Enrile, the Estradas, at lahat ng nagkasala sa bayan. How does it feel? Masaya na ba kayo?

    • xrisp

      Of course not brother, because we should not rejoice over evil things happening around us. Without forgetting justice, we should also concern ourselves for things we could do to glorify God.

      • Magsasaka

        then start getting justice by prosecuting those rapist priest not by relocating and reassigning them

      • xrisp

        Even if erring priests escape man’s justice, they have to face, just as each one of us when we die, heavenly justice and there, there is no escape!

      • Magsasaka

        natatakasan nila ang batas dahil kinukupkop sila ng mga damaso, isa pang mangmang on the loose

      • juanpedro de jose

        hindi namin kaylangan ang justice nang god mo! magpakamatay kana para mabawasan na ang mga tanga sa mundo!..

      • xrisp

        We have the same God, isn’t it brother?

    • boldyak

      forgiveness, doesn’t mean forget the violations against the law, forgive the sin and prosecute the crime….isn’t it clear to you?….you are confused or just don’t have the idea…why don’t you consult your pastor to guide you, it is his responsibility to enlight you, what is the use of giving your ten percent income every month if he is not guiding you?…

    • farmerpo

      Give to Caezar what is Caezar’s, and give to God what is God’s. God’s forgiveness and kindness to the marcoses etc…Caezar’s justice to the same. The sad thing is that Caezar is not acting or plain forgetful. Ang pangalan ni Caezar sa Pinas ay Juan.

  • edpoeto

    Mr. Tagle is dreaming and hallucinating. Get real. Its better that the church share it’s wealth directly to those in need. No more lip service.

    • xrisp

      Brother, you may have time to coordinate with the various Catholic Churches and know of their various apostolate services available for all of us to share our resources to help the needy and the poor. They will be most glad to accept any of your assistance or help in any manner.

      • edpoeto

        Why is there a need for coordination? Is it not automatically shared with the people, after all those tithes solicited came from the people voluntarily, I think the church should llikewise do the same without urging, such act becomes a farce if not done without the church concious effort to really help the hungry. Such benevolence should be done regularly or the Church survival will be counted as more and more people now realized the negative importance of the Church and it’s teachings with the spread of communication at every fingertips which are contratry to the travails of the poor people of this country, wake up or will there will comes a time for your numbers to dwindle as more peopole are disenchanted with the church teachings.

      • xrisp

        Just open your eyes brother. The Church is doing everything to alleviate the condition of the poor in the best way it can. Just like here in our parish, our family is helping feeding the malnourished kids in our place. You could do the same brother. Try a visit to the Church and you could offer your assistance.
        For what you said about dwindling numbers of Church members: A Catholic faithful is very much aware that the attacks of the prince of Darkness and Lies will even intensify to the point that many apostates will leave the Church and you could even think of much worse things happening in the Church because of the Devil’s attacks but one thing is for sure, even if there will be a handful of fatihful left, the Church will stand until the end of time. And even to death, with God’s grace, I will never leave this Church.

      • edpoeto

        The devil you mentioned is a mere creation of your mind. I can be good in all the things I do but still you can picture me as someone not doing the right thing because your frame of mind have it created to suit your preference for something good. Such biases is understandably the way we think because of our expereinces that shape how we think and act are likely the effect of cultural influences accumulated from our ancestors. I can think GOD as someone like a hunk with a macho image girls will surely like. A boldstar for that purpose. I can also create the devils image as someone like Jesus with the horns of course. You see if you open the eyes, you will understand the whole picture. The eyes is just part of a bigger organ, THE BRAIN to understand the whole travestry this faith that you spread.

      • cowan2325

        it takes more than just your eyes and your brain to frame even just a piece of the what exists and what is true….so if you will only use your eyes and your brain, your frame is limited…anything outside of the limited frame is easily a travesty…understandable…

      • Crazy_horse101010

        i live among the poor and the church does nothing to help these people period of course i live along ways from any city they call it out of sight out of mind. a friend of mine from america tried to give the local priest money for the poor and he wouldnt take it because he said we dont help the . i was surpriised not about helping but he didnt take the money anyway. the local priest has car and 2 25000 purebreed maltese but im tjhe one who takes my neighbors to the hospital 50 kilometers away. as for the people leaving the church i come from a country that millions have left the reason was children being raped by the thousands and the yatican aiding and abetting the scum. they are the ones who shot themselves in the foot. anyway there is no charities here just a lot of hungry uneducated kids. .

      • Crazy_horse101010

        ps now attack me i dont care i live here and you dont. and ive spent a lot of money helping the poor which is more than any church here has done.

      • xrisp

        God sees the goodness in your heart. The noblest reason for doing something good for our brothers and sisters is doing it for the love of God.

      • edpoeto

        Shirley, if you open the records of the Church account held by BPI and other Banks malulula ka sa laki ng pera ng Simbahan. I mean it runs in BILLIONS in Pesos (these accounts were shown to us by a CPA in one seminar.)Ang sabi ng simbahan in one interview, e eto daw po ay naipon ng ilang dekada simula panahon ng kastila. Do you believe that. I mean there are some truth to that but the point is bakit hindi maipamahagi ang perang eto sa mga nangangailangan lalo na yung mdaming nagugutom, because simply that is the Church mission and nothing else. LAWAY lang ang puhunan nila bakit hindi pa ipamigay ng hindi hinihingi.

        juan yung katulad mong demonyo na puro kalaswaan ang pagiisip ay sana mapatawad nang Diyos. Yan ang ibig sabihin ni Cardinal. Ang kahirapan dito sa Manila ay dulot nang katamaran at puro panloloko at kasamaan at makaisa sa kapwa ang iniisip.

    • litobetita

      Para kang yung nagpakita kay Jesus sa garden ng Getsemane after the last supper kung magsalita ah. Or di kaya yung nasa left side ni Jesus nung nakapako sya sa Krus?

      • xrisp

        It is really hard for some people to appreciate the goodness of their brethren but it is so easy to throw hurting words. Are people not aware that the very words that come from their mouths shall judge them in the final hour?

      • litobetita

        Hindi naman si Tagle inahahaluntulad ko kay Jesus eh. Yung nag comment ang inihahalintulad ko sa kausap ni Jesus. ikaw ang mag-isip, simpleng sentence mali pa analysis mo. Patawa ka ha? Ang linaw ng comment ko eh.

      • Magsasaka

        ang labo ng isip mo inihalintulad mo ang nagkumento patungkol kay jesus kaya kanino mo inihalintulad si tagle?

      • litobetita

        Simple question lang yan ng subject at predicate. Kung hindi mo maintindihan, ibig sabihin absent ka ng tinuro sa inyo ng teacher mo sa english or filipino 101. Hindi ko inihalintulad si cardinal tagle kung kanino man, yung 1st person which is the speaker ang inihalintulad ko sa kausap ni Jesus. Wag ka na nga sumagot at baka mahawa ako sa kabobohan mo.

      • Magsasaka

        ah ganon ba, may nagkumento kay tagle at yaong nagkumento kay tagle ay inihalintulad mo sa mga makasalanang nakasalamuha ni kristo, ngayon pinalalabas mong mali ako hehehe, hindi ako mangmang na katulad mo, mga tangang katulad mo lang ang maililigaw mo

      • litobetita

        ano na naman yang sinasabi mo? wala naman akong sinabing nag kwento kay Tagle ah? may nabasa ka bang ganun kanina? Hoy gumising ka nga…sumasabat ka pala sa usapan na di mo alam ang puno’t dulo. So let me enlighten you….sabi nung isang blogger “kung banal daw si Cardinal Tagle talaga eh pumunta sya sa squater area at pakainin, arugain, bigyan ng pera yung mga batang mahihirap dun” . Yun ang bingyan ko ng comment kaya sabi ko “para kang yung kausap ni jesus as garden of getsemane pag nagsalita…..” so ang subject dun eh hindi si cardinal tagle kundi yung blogger. Hindi ko kinumpara si Tagle kay Jesus gaya ng insinuation mo. Next time unawain mo ng mabuti bago ka mag comment para di ka mabaon sa putik…

    The non-catholics and political animals will surely find a good opportunity to use Cardinal Tagle’s homily in attacking the church and/or using it for their political ends despite its substance being an example of the heart of Christrian doctrine which Randy David calls “redemptive passion.”

    • litobetita

      oo tama ka. tingnan mo nga mga comments nila. Walang pwedeng sabihin ang cardinal na wala silang maipupula……kawawa naman mga taong ito. Akala mo naman mga banal sila….sabi eh wag pagsamahin ang curch at politics pero yung mga sinasabi nila is about politics naman na iniuugnay sa simbahan. Pati mga responsibility ng government gustong ipaako sa catholics. eh bakit yung sect kaya nila, may naitulong sa mahirap? Anyway, sabi nga ni Cardinal eh “wag suklian ang kasalanan ng isa pang kasalanan”.

    THE CAUSE OF CORRUPTION IN CATHOLIC COUNTRIES
    It is a fact that religion has played an important role in the formation of a country. This is absolutely true in Catholic countries; undeniably, the common denominator of all corrupt and impoverished countries is religion [in general] and Catholicism [in particular].
    Is there really a relationship between corruption and the Catholic Church? The answer is YES, actual situation speaks for itself.
    Before the decree on separation of church and state, the colonies dominated by Spain [which was the Pope’s sattelite] were controlled by the Catholic Church. During these historical time, the colonies were managed in accordance with the Catholic systems.
    Now, what are these Catholic systems which are still prevailing until this modern time?
    1. Briberies and all forms of corruptions that could be traced back to the giving of something to the church in the guise of donation for purposes of facilitating the givers’ request to the saints.
    2. The giving of donations in exchange for a divine intervention or any favor; this is a form of bribery clothe with another terminology. This is a clear pattern of corruption.
    3. The pardons for sale and indulgences which still occur in another form until these days.
    4. The hypocrisy and shrewdness which could be traced back to the time of bishops and priests covering their evil acts behind the curtains of secrecy.
    The holy appearance with a divine posture is their only hiding wall from the real self – this hypocrisy is still an effective tool of corruption to evade from public suspicion. This instance is still prevailing until now may it be in religion or politics, the main point is that it was inherited from the Catholic system.
    Please no SUV or others this time.

        mexico drug cartels in order to launder their money have opened false churches with false priests when the church was asked did the accept it the answer was a false church is better than no church. . great reasoning. in america and italy you can find out where the mafia dons live by looking at the churches they are all rebuilt and the priests drive expensive cars. mngsr. dagle in cebu drives a bmw.they did a tv show in america called the millionaire priests. priests had condos on the ocean 2 or 3 cars mistressess and took trips all over the globe. . .

      • cowan2325

        drug cartels? they are basically all businessmen, right? used to violence? hard to tell…maybe what the no church means is that the true chuch had received threats of reprisal from the cartel…and they have the means, even the support of non-catholics, to easily eradicate the true church from the place…possible scenario you think?

      • litobetita

        Bakit, wala bang action dyan? If there is a crime, he should be brought to justice at let the law find out if he is guilty or not. Kung kailangan talaga aresuhin yan, aarestuhin yan…..wala naman ganun kalakas na pwersa ang bishop para pigilan ang mga pulis. Kung ang armed rebels nga nabibigyan ng arrest warrant eh. Kung hindi man sya maaresto at may arrest warrant naman, failure ng government yun at di ng simbahan. It’s either na walang arrest warrant or hindi naman seryoso ang mga pulis sa pagdakip. Wala naman diplomatic immunity ang mga pari sa pagkaka-alam ko. Baka naman sabihin mo na ma-impluwensya ang simabahan sa gobyerno? Eh kabaligtaran yan sa sinsabi ng gobyerno.

      • Magsasaka

        napaghahalatang wala kang alam kung hindi man pinagtatakpan mo ito, noong aarestuhin na si cabonce alam mo ba ang sinabi ni damaso de dios pueblos?na sa santo papa lang mananagot si cabonce the rapist priest, hindi mo rin alam siguro na pinagbantaan ni cabonce ang kanyang biktima na papatayin ang mga magulang nito kapag ito ay nagsumbong sa owtoridad

      • litobetita

        Talaga? Di ko alam yun ah? Ikaw ba naniniwala ka dun na sa Santo Papa lang sya managot at di sa batas natin? Di naman siguro ganun kabobo yun para sabihin yun at lalong di ka naman siguro tanga para maniwala dun di ba? Lahat ng kriminal ay maaring mang intimidate para maisakatuparan yung gusto nilang gawin, maging pari man ito o hindi kaya wala naman dapat ipagtaka kung may threat na involved. Ang dapat lang eh mapatunayan ito sa Husgado, maparusahan bago tayo magsalita nang kung anu-ano laban sa tao. Wala pa naman yatang conviction eh., so paano tayo nakakasiguro na totoo yun? Kung talagang alam mo ang nangyari, bakit di ka mag volunter na witness para naman matulungan mo ang “biktima” total naman sa pananalita mo eh mukhang malalim ang alam mo sa nangyari…baka na witness mo ito? Pag wala ka kasi dun sa actual na pangyayari, hindi acceptable yan sa court….”hearsay” o tsismis ang tawag nila dyan.

        o di ba, hindi ka pa nga nagsaliksik tumatakip ka na, at gusto mo pa palang palabasin na kasalanan ng mga pulis na nagtangkang umaresto, kasalanan nila dahil itinaboy sila ni damaso de dios pueblos?naiintindihan mo ba ang binabasa mo?papaano madadala ito sa korte kung sinasalag na kaagad ng mga kapwa mo damaso, kung gusto nilang manaig ang katotohanan bakit hindi isuko si cabonce at paharapin sa husgado, huwag mo akong tanungin kung naniniwala ako na sa santo papa lang mananagot si cabonce dahil hindi ako tanga at bopols na katulad mo, ang pinaguusapan natin dito ay mga pari na dapat ay huwaran ng kabutihang loob, obispo na dapat nagbibigay proteksyon sa kaluluwa ng tao hindi yaong lalong nagbabaon sa kumunoy ng impyerno, mukha bang malalim ang alam ko eh napanood ko lang sa tv ang interview sa biktima at naere din ito sa radio, kami lang ang nakabalita nito?o narinig mo ito pero ipinagpalagay mo na kaagad na hindi totoo?ano tawag sa katulad mong tagapagtangol ng mga damaso at mga manyakis na priest hindi ba DEMONYO.

Pero wag kang mag-alala at nakita ko yan sa internet kanina ng banggitin mo kaya alam ko na. Pero ibig bang sabihin kahit may arrest warrant pag di sinuko ng obispo eh di na pwede hulihin ng Pulis? Di ko alam na ganyan pala ka powerful ang mga pari…..siguro naman alam mo kung ano sarcasm ano?

    Priest who had sex with boys now tells how to smuggle ivory

    National Geographic‘s new issue exposes the ivory business, which has been hiding in plain sight since a worldwide trade ban was enacted in 1989. And a major player in the magazine’s story is a priest in the Philippines whom I wrote about in 2005 when investigating another global-trafficking phenomenon — the Catholic Church’s movement of sexual abuse suspects across international borders to escape justice.

    The priest, Monsignor Cristobal Garcia, is now quoted as explaining how to smuggle ivory into the United States:

    “Wrap it in old, stinky underwear and pour ketchup on it.” And if an icon won’t fit in a suitcase? Here’s how

    National Geographic‘s Bryan Christy summarizes Garcia’s advice: “I might get a certificate from the National Museum of the Philippines declaring my image to be antique, or I could get a carver to issue a paper declaring it

    to be imitation or alter the carving date to before the ivory ban.”Garcia also made provocative comments when I interviewed him about why he fled the U.S. in 1985. He admitted having sex with altar boys and supplying them with drugs

    The Catholic sex abuse cases are a series of convictions, trials and investigations into allegations of child sexual abuse Crimes committed by Catholic priests and members of Roman Catholic orders against children as young as 3 years old with the majority between the ages of 11 and 14.

    The concept of unqualified and abstract “Christian forbearance” is not necessarily good for man. It can stifle man’s quest for justice and the right, and may actually just breed hypocrisy. William Blake wrote a poem about it. Allow me to post it here, for anyone interested to read.
    – – – –
    A Poison Tree (by William Blake)

    I was angry with my friend:
    I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
    I was angry with my foe:
    I told it not, my wrath did grow.

    And I watered it in fears,
    Night and morning with my tears;
    And I sunned it with smiles,
    And with soft deceitful wiles.

    And it grew both day and night,
    Till it bore an apple bright.
    And my foe beheld it shine.
    And he knew that it was mine,

    And into my garden stole
    When the night had veiled the pole;
    In the morning glad I see
    My foe outstretched beneath the tree.

    The legion of anti-Christ bloggers has been writing nasty comments in this forum during the Holy Week! They write like there is no tomorrow and with such impunity to abuse their freedom of expression and without fear of what our Lord Jesus Christ shall judge them of. Even if the article is about the Palm Sunday message of Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle, the jackals, wolves, and hyenas are busy spreading venom in this forum. But, there is no need to fear or be anxious about. The enemies of the Church shall be sent down to the ground like the serpent whose head is crushed under the heels of the Blessed Mother.

    The Catholic Church has been besieged with scandals and shameful acts by some of her clergy. These comments appearing herein are not new as these sins and errors in judgment by some priests and bishops are already known to the world. There is nothing to hide and yet the intention of these bloggers is merely to contradict the Palm Sunday message from Cardinal Tagle “embrace Jesus in his fullness, including his death.” Thus, it is obvious that the motive of these writers is to destroy the faith of the Catholics towards their God and that of their shepherds, the clergy.

    It is sad that damaging comments are being spread by these imbeciles who think that they can separate Catholics from their God and divide the Church with the desire to demolish the foundation of faith. Bad news for you, guys, the Church shall remain steadfast and strong as she always did for the more than two millenniums. Catholics who remain faithful and obey the teachings of Jesus shall have God on their side. With these words from the Divine Master “If you abide in my commands, I shall abide in you.”, these are very reassuring. God be with us!

    There’s no way evil can be defeated without doing penance. Repent first and undo the evil that was done by serving justice to the victims. There has to be reconciliation and that involves being answerable to one’s sins. Then we can talk about kindness.
