:: the confession loop ::
Last Wednesday, I thought someone dropped a bomb at the Greenmeadows area, with this simple inquiry.
“Ano po yung confession?”
I find it really ludicrous for someone who is getting married in 5 days time; I think they are getting married tomorrow, congratulations! Last time I checked, before you get the other basic sacraments for the Catholic faith, much of it lies on the absolving experience of confession.
The kicker was, her soon to be husband had the same dumbfounded expression. Much to think that they thought it was probably another step that they have to pay at the counter.
Sorry. As a Catholic, it does not take a genius to understand what a Catholic is. You do not need the highest educational attainment.
Sadly, are they even sure of their religion?
And with that, getting married is a serious matter especially if you are planning to do it in front of the altar, in front of the Lord. It creates a lot of responsibilities not just for you, as a couple, but for the up and coming growth of your family. Meaning, you have to, at least, change a few things about your lifestyle. Much more with your religious upbringing of your children.
You might not believe all these things that I am saying but having a great backbone for a kid’s faith would create a better person in him / her.
Apologies for the religious post. I know, I know. It ain’t moi.

500 Film Challenge update:
28. Upside Down (2012) [dir. Juan Diego Solanas]
Breathtaking visuals and extra-smart sci-fi logic introduced. Story-wise, it was quite lacking. The plot seems oversimplified sometimes and, well, it just did not work for me. It feels like it would probably fall along the lines of The Adjustment Bureau. Nonetheless, it was pure eye-candy for this casual viewer.
29. Hit And Run (2012) [dir. David Palmer, Dax Shepard]
Simply put: whut? The best part in this film is the Filipino reference. Aside from an upfront comment, I would like to add that there is a viewing pleasure in this movie somehow. I just can’t put my tongue into it.
