Tags: Brother Romy Abulad SVD, Cebu, Fr. Dino Ariola SVD
Gusto ko kayong ipakilala sa dalawang mga respected SVD missionaries namin. Ang nakaputi ay si Fr. Dino Ariola, SVD, isang formator sa Divine Word Formation Center of Davao. Last August, pagdating niya sa University of San Carlos, Cebu City for our gathering, ang ibibigay sanang kwarto sa kanya ay ang kwarto ng guard ay ang kwarto ni Bishop Arturo Bastes. Lol. Akala ng guard si Fr. Dino at si Bishop Bastes ay one and the same.
Ang nakapula ay si Brother Romy Abulad, SVD — a brilliant professor, my favorite Philosophy Professor noong nasa Christ the King Seminary pa ako sa Quezon City. He was my professor in the course Postmodernism. Di ko makakalimutan yun. Binigyan niya ako ng grade 98 (thank you Bro!).
Sa aming SVD congregation mayroong SVD Priests, mayroon ding SVD Brothers…
What are the similarities?
Both are religious. Meaning we take the vows of chastity, poverty and obedience. Both are missionaries. Ang isang SVD priest o ang SVD brother ay pwede ring ipadala sa mission lands, o sa ibang cultures for missionary work. Both possess the desire to serve God’s people.
What are the differences?
SVD priests spread the Word of God primarily through preaching and the administration of the 7 sacraments (Baptism, Holy Eucharist, Reconciliation, Confirmation, Matrimony, Holy Orders and Anointing of the Sick).
SVD Brothers do their mission work through their profession or skills (example, as a brother teacher, brother nurse, brother architect, brother scientist, brother lawyer).
Ang SVD priest ay nag-aaral ng Philosophy at Theology. More flexible ang educational attainment ng SVD Brothers kasi free sila pumili ng kanilang profession at skill training.
Now, back to the picture: Kung makakapagbigay kayo ng caption sa picture, ano kaya ang aming conversation? Ano kaya ang nasa isip ni Fr. Dino? Ano kaya ang sinasabi ko? Ano din kaya ang iniisip ni Brother Romy?
P.S. NEXT POST WILL BE OCTOBER 26, MONDAY.
