Another SVD priest (he asked not to be named) remembered his Tagalog language blooper with delight. He wanted to have some Tagalog sentences in his homily. So, one time, he presided a burial mass at the cathedral and thought that it might be the perfect timing to have some Tagalog sentences in his homily.

And so he started, “Problems are part of our life….”

Then, he made a short pause and told himself that perhaps he could also say it in Tagalog.

So, he translated his opening salvo to the surprise of the people: “Ang problema ay kayo!” (Meaning, You are the problem!)
