When I read again your article just past midnight (last night), a thought came to me. Why, the monastery would and could be the perfect place for the First Couple of the Philippines to retire after the President and his/her spouse retire from the office. If there is a constitutional requirement that a President, upon completion of his/her term, would become a nun or a monk, as the case may be, and the spouse would enter too the convent or abbey, then perhaps things would get a lot better for the homeland. In fact, sending the ex-President to the monastery would be a better place that sending him or her to prison (for plunder, as in the case of former President Estrada). Imagine a nun or a monk does not even own the watch worn on his/her wrist. Imagine President Arroyo spending the rest of her life praying (for the sins of mankind and not just of the Filipinos) and singing hymns to the Almighty like ‘Gloria in Excelsis Deo . . .’ And First Gentleman Mike Arroyo, an alumnus of the Ateneo de Manila College of Law, joining the Jesuits and devoting the rest of his life serving people gratis et amore. But I guess that President Arroyo would say, ‘I want nun, oops, none of the above proposals . . .’.” Well, I guess that Mr. Pascual and this writer, and possibly Jesse Jose, had the same Divine inspiration this week. All of us came up with the consensus that it would be better to give up material things, so as to be guaranteed spiritual fulfillment. Lolo Bobby M.
