Parilympics 2018 promotes unity among clergy and religious


The recently concluded 2018 Parilympics have brought together the clergy and religious of the Archdiocese of Manila and other dioceses.

“Ang mas mahalagang trophy na dapat na pagsikapang makuha ng bawat Pari at ng bawat Religious ay ang mga kaluluwa na mas maganda pa sa paningin ng Panginoon na dapat mas maganda pa sa ating paningin kaysa sa anumang tropeyong ginto, pilak o anumang medalya sapagkat yan ang talagang treasure ng Panginoon at dyan ang kalaban natin sabi ko nga hindi ang kapwa pari kundi ang demonyo, ang kamunduhan at ang mga masasamang hilig, mga makasalanang hilig ng ating sarili,” Novaliches Bishop Emeritus Teodoro Bacani Jr. said in an interview by Radio Veritas during the closing ceremony of 2018 Parilympics.
