I was still in college that time when the sacristan mayor of Christ the King chapel (now Divine Word Shrine) hastily asked me to be the commentator for the birthday thanksgiving mass of Fr. Gerry Orbos, SVD. I became very excited since it was my first time to see him. When the mass was about to start, I confidently proclaimed in front of the congregation, “Our mass presider is Fr. Oscar Orbos, SVD!”
Suddenly, I realized people were smiling at me. I was really clueless, I turned my back and do some “zipper check.”
But my zipper was closed!
When Fr. Orbos was already in the altar, he smiled and said, “The commentator introduced me as Fr. Oscar Orbos. Brothers and sisters, I am not the one who ran for vice-president.”
Wahaha. Shame on me.
