April 4, 2015, 11:49 a.m. - THE ORDER of the Preachers again led Filipinos in reflecting on the “Seven Last Words” of Jesus Christ on Good Friday at Santo Domingo Church in Quezon City.

Reflecting on the first of Jesus’ last words, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do”, Fr. Gallardo Bombase, O.P., a parish priest in Albay, said God’s forgiveness is the most effective cure to the sickness brought by sin. “Ang kapatawaran ng Diyos ay libre. Ang kailangan lang ay pagsisihan ng taimtim. Kahit hindi ka handa, palaging handang magpatawad ang Diyos,” Bombase said.
