    Thank you Fr. Andrew. Your podcast has been my daily companion.Hope you don’t mind a quick question. Currently, I struggle being friends with people I know supported a political candidate in the Philippines whose family is known to have looted and ordered the killing of hundreds of Filipinos during the Martial Law era. Is it right just to avoid these people?

      My friend, your question speaks to the heart of how we live in the midst of conflict and strife. It can only be answered when adequate time and energy is put into two crucial actions. First, bring this to your prayer, asking the Lord for guidance and wisdom! Second, ask yourself: Can I make a difference by being in the lives of these people? Does my presence promote the Kingdom of God and the work of the Lord Jesus? Sometimes we are in situations that we can help make a change, and sometimes we are in situations that are bigger than ourselves and we are powerless. Therefore: pray and reflect on how the Lord is calling you in this moment to live your life to the fullest. You are in my prayers.
