Showing Compassion, Most Potent way of Evangelization


What is the best way to Evangelize? This was the question Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle was asked amidst the many modern means of communication for evangelization.

“Meron sigurong mga tools na hindi magiging obsolete at kailangang gamitin pero mayroon ding mga bago na kailangang hanapin para ma-address yung nagbabagong pananaw, nagbabagong kaisipan.”

But the most effective means to Evangelize, the Cardinal said, one that will never be obsolete, is showing compassion to the poor, to the sick especially those who are in the hospital and even to those who are grieving.

The Cardinal also pointed out that in this changing world, there are also methods or means of communication that we need to adopt.

“Pero meron ding mga naging methods na parang akma sa isang kultura o sa isang mind set na tanggapin natin na nag-iiba rin. Kaya pati yung lenguahe, tool ang language. O kaya yung mga kanta, yung mga programs paano mo i-package yung approach sa Word of God. Yun ay kailangan ire-review,” Cardinal Tagle told the Archdiocesan Office of Communications.

In addition, he cited how parents continuously find ways to show their love and affection to their children.

“Katulad din siguro yan ng magulang. Yung mga anak mo nung sanggol yan, ganito yung approach mo tapos pag nag-teen-ager, yun din naman mamahalin mo din pero naghahanap ka ng ibang pamamaraan paano mo makausap, paano mo maipadama yung pagmamahal mo,” he said.

“Noong bata yan laging kapit sa iyo yan eh, pag teen-ager parang ayaw na, na kasama mo. Hahanap ka naman ng ibang way. Pag yan ay nag-asawa na, yan ay may mga sarili ng mga anak, meron ka ring ibang style. Parang ganun yung nakikita ko,” he added. (Jheng M. Prado/RCAM-AOC)
