MANILA--Catholic Church leaders once again called on lawmakers Friday to ditch plans to amend the country’s constitution. Cebu Archbishop Ricardo Cardinal Vidal said there’s time for Charter change and it should not be done with haste.

Picture this: you, in your toga, walking along the long aisle, waiting for your name to be called, excited to get hold of that diploma, or medal (if you are an honor student), until that final moment came when you could release a sigh of relief because you’re done with college.

An accident occurred in a nuclear power plant and all employees died during the incident. Minutes later, employees found themselves in a queue; thinking as they are about to face the biggest question in their lives from someone they never knew.“

IT'S GRADUATION WEEK FOR MANY schools. I have the joy of graduating again on Saturday under the MBA program for priests at the Ateneo de Naga University. Doña Chito Madrigal of happy memory offered a scholarship for priests of Bikol through the Madrigal Foundation, to take up an MBA program on Socio-Pastoral Entrepreneurship in order to equip priests with necessary know-how for revitalizing the evangelization programs of parishes through an integral development plan. Seventeen priests from Bikol (2 from Virac, 1 from Masbate and 11 from Caceres-Naga) have finished the graduate program. Thank you Doña Chito. Congratulations Fathers!

My dear niece, Dana, graduates from Ateneo de Naga University on March 28, making me privy to the long rehearsals and tedious preparation that went into the ceremony. When at last I saw the invite to the ceremony, I realized this was not the small school – or college – I recall with fondness. The number of graduating students the past years by my standard is big. My next question to my niece was: what time will the ceremony be over. We had varied estimates: one at 11pm and another at 9pm. Dana was so busy the whole week and even days before that I did not have time to share with her my memory of a fun graduation with people numbering some hundreds. The ceremony was simple and sweet.

She used to be a warrior against CO2-killers, a queen of world climate, a chancellor with a mission. It was not long ago that Angela Merkel seemed to have no other more important topic than climate. But today we are suffering from the severest financial crisis in 80 years and it obviously puts things, even the world climate, into perspective. Lars Seefeldt, reporter for ZDF, a German TV program under public law, recently hunted down the issue, and it is his interviews I am here referring to.

Last week, I brought out the unauthorized P2,085,000.00 election-timed loan that was released to an NGO (SPUKOI) on February 17, 1998, in aid of Cho Roco’s election as Robredo’s interim successor. And to this date, it remains unpaid. Thus, I called for an Ombudsman investigation for graft and corruption of all responsible officials for this loan. As well, the Sanggunian and the Naga City People’s Council should investigate this loan posthaste, acting not by blind loyalty to Robredo, but by their solemn OATH to our People.
