When asked by a young man if it’s true that he doesn’t watch the television and what he thinks about the internet, the Pope answered appealing to the tv show producers to make shows with content that would help people prepare for their life. He also appealed to the personal responsibility of each one saying: “You must LEARN HOW TO CHOOSE WHAT YOU WATCH. If I see that a program is NOT GOOD FOR ME, HURTS MY VALUES, makes me vulgar or has vulgarity, I HAVE TO CHANGE THE CHANNEL.” As for the use of internet, the Pope said: “IF YOU YOUNG PEOPLE BECOME ATTACHED THE COMPUTER, AND BECOME A SLAVE TO THE COMPUTER, YOU LOSE YOUR FREEDOM. And if you look at dirty content on the computer, you lose your dignity. WATCH TV AND USE THE COMPUTER, BUT FOR THE GOOD THINGS, THE BIG THINGS, THE THINGS THAT MAKE US GROW.” (Pope Francis, Sarajevo, June 6, 2015)

Dear friends, this could be a CONCRETE RESOLUTION as we prepare ourselves for the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Let us be more PRUDENT in the use of television and internet, avoiding anything which might offend the Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ and make us lose our freedom and dignity as children of God. We ask this through the help of the Immaculate Heart of Mary: Mother of Fair Love, Most Pure and Chaste, pray for us!

Saint Bernadette College of Alabang – Talk to Parents on Educating the Children about Sexuality

Last September 7, 2013, Tony and Ching Aunario gave a presentation on educating the children about sexuality to parents at the Saint Bernadette College of Alabang in Muntinlupa City  at the SBCA Basic Education Building.  The talk was arranged by the SBCA’s  Principal, Mrs. Ma. Flordeliza Rabonza de Guzman, for the First Quarterly Parenting Talk.  The school offers education from Nursery to College, with a population of about 500.  Mr. Jun-jun Butaslac, President of SBCA’s Parents Association, actively participated in the lecture-presentation.

Focus was made on the virtues of Holy Purity and Chastity which were discussed at length to highlight their vital importance in the children’s formative years.  The talk referred also to the Reproductive Health (RH) law now pending in the Supreme Court which conducted the Oral Arguments.  The RH law, among others, aggressively promotes the use of free contraceptives that encourages promiscuity, and mandatory sex education in schools to children that should be taught primarily by parents in a loving atmosphere of the family. Moreover, discussion was made about the concern regarding the increasing teen-age pregnancies from 7.1% to 11.7% as reported recently by the National Statistics Office (NSO).  In absolute figures, this translates to millions of unwed young mothers who are unprepared with the responsibility of taking care of the newborn.  A question and answer portion ensued to further elucidate the points taken up in the presentation.

Emphasis was likewise focused on the crucial role in social responsibility of television network operators, film makers, advertisers, fashion setters, media men and women.  They can enhance the content of  TV programs, movies, advertisements, fashion and media works that inspire ennobling ideas, images, messages, signals  and values to portray positive role models for the young who are our hope as future leaders imbued with moral fibre.
