All in the family: Weak family ties helping spread of illegal drugs, CBCP exec says
Weak family ties may be one factor helping the spread of illegal drugs, a Catholic Church official lamented.
Because of this, San Fernando (Pampanga) Archbishop Emeritus Paciano Aniceto said said communities must find ways to strengthen family ties.
“Pumapasok yung mga iba’t ibang aspeto na solusyon na dapat ibigay. Di pwede yung mga bilis bilisan, kung ano yung naisip natin lamang. This is a total societal concept kaya kailangan ang pamilya dyan nanggagaling ang buhay at ang pamilya sabi ng constitution ng Pilipinas, ‘the family is the foundation of society it has the invariable right,’ na dapat itong pamilyang ito igalang ang kasagraduhan ng pamilya,” Aniceto, former head of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines’ Episcopal Commission on Family and Life, said on Church-run Radyo Veritas.
He said the right approach to the problem is to have government, the Church and communities work together to strengthen family ties.
The government in particular should strengthen the “judicial structure,” he added.
“At dapat ay ipagtanggol ng gobyerno ang pamilya kaya yung ating sistema sa CBCP ay ‘the Filipino family are missionary disciples of the Eucharist,’” he said.
