Master of the Order of Preachers and UST Chancellor Fr. Bruno Cadore, O.P. has called on Thomasians to value human life and exercise compassion amid extrajudicial killings in the country.
The Dominicans’ chief hound dog expressed deep concern over the spate of killings in the bloody drug war of the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte, as well as the recent death of a UST law freshman after alleged hazing rites.
“No human being can decide that human life is not promised to sanctity. Obviously, we don’t understand all lives but we can understand that we are called once again to receive the wonderful news that human life has been given to us,” Cadore said in a meeting with student leaders at the Civil Law auditorium on Tuesday.
Cadore reminded Thomasians that learning in the University has to go hand in hand with being human.
“To learn professional competence, to be able to work in this world and serve at the same time the conviction of [the youth], to share the ability of intelligence, cannot be disconnected with the ability to be a human being. And to be a human being is to be compassionate,” he said. With reports from Jacob Marvin D. Urmenita
