WE DO NOT HAVE A PRODUCT TO SELL BUT A LIFE TO SHARE. - MSGR. BONG LO TO THE CLERGY OF THE DIOCESE OF BACOLOD
During the January 5, 2020, Monthly Clergy Recollection of the Diocese of Bacolod, Msgr. Esteban “Bong”Lo, LRMS, as resource speaker, reminded the clergy of the Diocese of Bacolod to witness to their faith in this year 2021 Missio Ad Gentes. Msgr. Lo said that the faith is not a product that one sell but rather a life that is to be lived according to the life and example of Christ.
Msgr. Lo added that our churches can be likened to restaurants where we are called to offer people the service that they are looking for. We are to serve them with the Word and the Eucharist. As pastors, he reminded priests that it also matters that the ambiance of our Churches is fit for worship. “We have to improve and invest on the sound system. We need to train the choir and to prepare our homiles”, Msgr. Lo said.
According to Rev. Fr. Ruel Jundos, Head of the Commission on Clergy, the January 5 Monthly Clergy Recollection was well-attended with 72 priests present at the gathering.
