QUESTIONS COMING FROM ABOUT HOLY WEEK:
tama rin po ba ginagawa mga tao na nagpapako cla sa krus upang matanggal daw or mabawasan ang kanilang mga kasalanan I, hope na masasagot po ang aking katanungan from the Bible po sana manggagaling ang kasagutan sana hindi lng sa opinion ng tao.
HUMBLE ANSWER (ATTY. MIGUEL L. ABAS, SR. -Catholic Faith Defenders National Internal Vice President):
As regards to the question, the Church respects the intentions of those people who nailed themselves on the cross during the Good Friday. But the Church had never commanded or even recommended this type of sacrifices to be offered. The Church believed that Christ crucifixion and death was enough for the salvation of the whole mankind. It is now replaced, from that bloody sacrifice of Christ on the Calvary to an unbloody sacrifice of the Holy Mass offered daily in the whole world from the shining to the setting of the sun (Malachias 1:11). What sacrifices, the Church wished her people to offer is a sacrifice of conversion of one self, a change of heart and a sacrifice for the service to humanity.
