Don’t turn your back on your neighbors this Holy Week — Roman

Apr 7, 2020 @ 7:51

“Tayo po ba sa panahon ng kagipitan ay tinatalikuran ang ating kapwa?”

That was the question posed by Bataan Rep. Geraldine Roman as she reflected on how to observe Holy Week in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic.

She said this was not the time to turn one’s backs on people in need, especially those who had no one to turn to during the coronavirus crisis.

“Sa matagumpay na pagpasok ni Kristo sa Jerusalem, maraming sumalubong sa kanya at marami siyang kaibigan. Matapos ang ilang araw ay tinalikuran na siya halos ng lahat ng mga sumalubong sa kanya,” Roman said.

She added: “Tayo po ba sa panahon ng kagipitan ay tinatalikuran ang ating kapwa?”

In her Facebook post on Palm Sunday, Roman said, “Usually, mayroong blessing ng mga palaspas sa umaga ngunit dahil sa Covid-19 outbreak ay bawal na ang mga mass gatherings na tulad nito.”

“Gayunpaman, alam kong hindi hadlang ang Covid-19 para isabuhay natin ang diwa ng mahal na araw,” she said.
