Hindi 'for sale' ang mga sakramento, ayon sa Santo Papa
Ang mga sakramento ay regalo ng Panginoon sa atin. Ito ay libre at hindi dapat magiging "source" ng kita ng Simbahan.
"Sometimes, I have seen — not here in Rome, but in another area — I saw a list of prices," sabi ni Pope Francis.
Aniya, kung may gustong magbigay ng "offering," dapat ilagay ito sa box "secretly, so that no one can see how much they have given."
"This calls for our attention and makes us think about how we treat our temples, our churches; if it is a house of God, a house of prayer, of encounter with the Lord ... if it resembles a marketplace," ayon sa Santo Papa.
"Let us think about the celebrations of some sacrament where you go, and you do not know if it is a place of worship, the house of God, or if it is a social hall," aniya.
"It is true that celebrations must be beautiful, but not worldly, because worldliness derives from the god of money. It is also an idolatry."
