We strongly condemn the murder of Mr. Mario Contaoi, an educator, radio commentator and environmental advocate. We grieve with his family, friends and colleagues. We are appalled that despite the promise of change by this administration, murder with impunity remains to be a trend. While the assailant’s motive(s) remains unclear, the authorities must not discount his previous stint as radio commentator and his sharp commentaries on environmental issues as possible reasons for his murder.
January 9 is the Feast of the Black Nazarene, although liturgically speaking the image of the Christ carrying the cross is more fitted for the Holy Week rather than the Season of Epiphany. Msgr. Sabino A. Vengco, Jr. of the Loyola School of Theology explained that January 9 is actually the day when the image was transferred from the earthquake-destroyed church of the Recollects in Intramuros to the Minor Basilica in Quiapo, Manila. In fact, Fr. Vengco is suggesting that the religious festival should be transferred to the Lenten Season so that it would be in keeping with the Liturgical Calendar.
