  1. This picture got me| I think it is good that Duterte can also have emotions :P Seriously, I am no Catholic and I didn’ t consider yesterday a day to remember my lolo’ s death: I think I should pay respect for my lolo’ s death on His Death Anniversary–> What I mean is| Digong ain’ t a practicing Catholic but at least He has the boldness to show the world that He pays Remembrance to his dead parents, on a Catholic Holiday. That act is a humble one| I take notice of it :)

    I hold not to follow the All Souls Day Tradition| I am against mass celebrations, especially if its on the sad core + I feel like there is darkness in this said day: I think remembering one’ s death are all only during its anniversaries :P

  2. Kissing the tomb is unsanitary and not neccearily a sign of idolizations or love of his departed parent. It looks only Duterte is only for the show and media consumption. All he needs to do is make a silent prayer for the departed.m. Duterte is indeed an abnormal,being full,of enigmatic actions! Jn
