“So, it’s by god’s grace…napatawad ko siya habang pinagbabayaran niya yung kasalanan na ginawa niya. At the end of his life, makakabalik siya sa Diyos natin na buo ang dignity niya, kung paano siya ginawa ng Dyos, isang mabuting tao,” Picache told the Archdiocesan Office of Communications (AOC) during her visit to greet Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle on his 62nd birthday on June 21, at his residence in Intramuros.

The veteran actress who was one of the sharers during PCNE 5’s Heart to Heart Talk with the Cardinal held at the Cuneta Astrodome in Pasay, also invited the Archbishop of Manila to the advance screening of her documentary film titled “Radical Love”. 

During PCNE 5, Picache brought the audience into tears as she narrated the story of how her 75-year-old mother, Zenaida Sison was brutally killed by Michael Flores, helper, who was under the influence of drugs on the time of the murder. Picache’s mother was found dead inside their residence in Quezon City with stab wounds.

The documentary film “Radical Love”, according to Picache, is “a glimpse on the daughter’s journey through processing, deciding, and working on the forgiveness of her mother’s assailant.”

“We should not all come from a place of anger. We should always come from a place of love and compassion. Kaya ko po tinawag na Radical Love yung documentary, kasi ganun ang Panginoon. Yung radical love niya sa atin, na no matter how much we sin, we fail him, we abandon him, yung love and mercy niya nandoon lang,” Picache said.

The actress who already portrayed several roles in the movies and television conveyed a powerful message to all the people especially those who share the same journey as her.

“Ang gusto ko lang po ipaalala sa tao, ang evil hindi pwede labanan ng another evil. Ang evil dapat nilalabanan ng kabutihan. Sabi nga sa Proverbs 12:21, “We shall all overcome evil with goodness and kindness.” 

“Buhayin natin yung value ng pagmamahal sa kapwa, yung compassion sa kapwa, yung malasakit. So, sana ay mabuhay natin ulit yun sa puso at damdamin natin,” Picache said.

The advance screening of Radical Love will be held on July 4, 2019, at the Dolphy Theater at the ABS CBN studio. The national telecast will be aired on July 7, 2019, at ABS CBN Sunday’s big event, at 10:30 p.m. The documentary film was created by the ABS CBN News and Current Affairs. (Jheng M. Prado/RCAM-AOC)
