NVizcaya bishop calls on change in Christian values

by Ben Moses Ebreo

Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya (March 29) -- Bishop Ramon Villena of the diocese here and in Quirino province yesterday has called on all Christians in the country to initiate change among themselves for the good of the country.

Speaking with his homily during the Palm Sunday mass at the St. Dominic Cathedral in this town, Villena expressed sadness on the resurgence of what he called ?split christians? in the country.

He said split Christians refer to those who act, behave and harbor attitudes beyond the teachings of Christianity.

"It is very very sad and shameful to note and know that our country who has 70 percent of Christian population is also highlighted as one of the corrupt countries in the world," he stressed.

Villena also accused several politicians for projecting the image of the country as such due to their unfulfilled promises to the people.

The bishop also called on the catholic faithful to help in cleansing the image of Christianity and the country as a whole by starting change among themselves. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
