Reflection: “I completed priestly training at Central Seminary of the University of Santo Tomas in Manila and earned philosophy and theology degrees at the Ecclesiastical Faculties of the University of Santo Tomas in Manila. I also have a doctorate in education. Ordained a priest on April 24, 1990, I have served in the ministry of forming candidates to the priesthood in my home diocese in the Philippines. About 65 percent of the priests at present in our diocese were once my students in the seminary.”
