Marasigan The last homily ARNOLD ALAMON THE death of well-loved priest Fr. Tito Paez of the Rural Missionaries of the Philippines from the bullets of brutal assassins in Nueva Ecija obviously sprung into action by Duterte’s declaration of war versus the left after the failure of the peace talks should not be forgotten nor ignored. I believe that when a new generation of Filipinos will look back on the notorious but brief rule of the man from the South many years into the future, they will look at the martyrdom of Fr. Tito as a watershed of sorts. They will have the benefit of hindsight decades onwards and they will see that the popular but brutal regime of the folkish dictator began to slowly unravel and lose legitimacy when his madness for order and absolute power eventually victimized a man of the cloth who have taken sides with the poor and oppressed. Last December 4, 2017, Fr. Tito responded to a request of a political detainee just released from prison for assistance. The family feared that he could be in danger once he stepped out behind bars given the climate of impunity prevailing in the country. It was a well-founded fear as motorcycle riding men were seen tailing Fr. Tito’s vehicle when the priest picked them up. Thinking of the safety of everyone, online accounts reveal that the priest arranged for the transfer of the released political prisoner and his family to another vehicle in the parking lot of a parish. The plan was to use his vehicle as a decoy in order for the political prisoner and his family to lose the threat. His fears were proven true when the same motorcycle riding men again followed Fr. Tito’s vehicle and on an appointed portion of the street overtook and then fired nine bullets at the passenger side. The attack was meant to kill the just released political prisoner if he was still riding the tinted vehicle. However, two of these bullets mortally wounded the priest. Witnesses report that Fr. Tito was able to shout to his ass 762( Đ&W7B( 'WBFW7Ff&VBFV 6G2vࠐF6RvW&RFR7@v&G2bFR( 'G.( 2FR4$57FFVVB6FVr2FVF6'&V7Fǒ76W'G2FRFV6&FFBRv2V&W"bFP֖7G'b6&7B2FR76760WW&VB2fV6RvF'VWG0v2vBBvW&gVf7BF6RfBVBF&VPv&G2FR&W7Bv2&RFvfP27B֖ǒBRVfW2W0vFvW&gVW762&WBfFF66W&VBB67&f6RࠐbRǒBFP'GVGFWআ06f7F2&WBFR6V6G2@Ff"FR'VWG2FFRv2ƖfRR֖vB&&&ǒWB@F2v( ŖW2&W7B@fRFWfFVBגƖfRFfrFRfG7FW2b6&7Bf"RF0VBfvr2֖7G'f"FR"BFR&W76VB`6VRvW&RF6RFRf 6VFW"B&FV7FfvpFR676FB6&7B6vV@FW'2vVBF6VW6FFvǐBvFw&VB6f7FWfV`F2VBWGFrגvƖfRFvW"W2&W7BBגfFvN( 2W7FW72B&vFVW6W702F6FFRfV"fRfW"'VWG2BVfrF0'FƖfRfVFǒ&W7@FBV2FBFBfRFPWW'Ff6FR&WGvVVv6P֖7G'6VB6W'fR6&7Bv06V"v6R6FRRv2FR&6Rbf&6W2R7FB07FBBfFR6FR`FR"B&W76VBWfVF6PvfRV&VBFfv@&6( Рg"FF( 27B֖ǐ6VB&R7&Ff"FP&VƖvW2B&VƖvW2F&VvWB26W'f6RFFP"B&VVFR&b0ƖfRFFRf"'&FW"6&V@6ƖF&Gf"W"66W6W0FRG2bW&FW&W27FFPv22f6&7F7Bv'FbW"VVFࠐvR&RB6rf 6VB'WB7&r7G2bW&6Ц2VRg"FF( 2ƖfR@FVF2WfFV6RbF2B2W7@66VrFBF2W&FW&W27FFPVFW"GWFW'FRv2VVBWWrg&FW"bFVFF&vWFpV&W'2bVv&w&W76fP&v旦F2vfRV76w2rv&P&VGF'G"FV6VfW2f"FP6R&vFVW2&V622g"FFFBT44%D%B05DTBb7&F6rFRf666ЦbFRU2&6VBGWFW'FR&VvR6VF66RFvƖvBFP( &G7F'( b6V7G2FP&Vv^( 2F&vWB&WB2W76( 0( F֖r( vWfW"FRw&VFW &&VƖW22R6FVB@7F&6VFW'7FFrbƖw07W6VFǒFRFRR`6V6R6FVCRF@BBV7B7GVGr6V7G0BWfV6R6FV֖27F&0WFW6RFVF2B7FV@6ǒ'&FVBFRU26Bv ƖRFW6R7F&6âRFB@6FRFW6R7W6VB7&W2@W6W76W2FV"&W"7F&66FWG2ࠐf'7BRf2F6GVFRFP7G'VvvW2f"6V6FBR6FW0FR6FWBbVFW&FWfVVBV^( 27VffW&rBv"6V6BR6f2F6GVFRvfW&VG0FW&rF6V6FP6FWBbFR7FFRb6VvR6V@'FRU2BFW"vW7FW&vW'0F&Vvv'2V&&v6&FvR@FW"V7W&W2W&Ɨ7BƖ76V7BvfW&VG22&VfV7FV@'FR&FW"bFVU26V7&WF'b7FFRV'76vW"FvVVFRFV7&F6ǒVV7FVB66Ɨ7@vfW&VBb6fF"VFR6RFRV&ǒs3( RFPV6ג67&V( РWBW2&R6V#FW6P6FWG2FBW7W6RFRFVF0FB67W'&VBVFW"FRR`6V6'WBFW&fFR&WGFW"VFW'7FFrbFW6RFW&PvW&RFVF2FBvW&R6֗GFVB'6V7G2W'&"'WBBvV@&RW'&VW2F&VfRFVF0FR6V7BfVVB@6V7B֖7&V@vfW&VG0g&FV"7F&66FWG2@&W6VBFV2Wf2b6V6ࠐF&B6VFf0F&V6v旦Rr6V7@fVVG2G&WrW762BV&V@g&W'&'26֗GFVBFR7BF@&W7VFVBFRFVFbfW'FbFRV&W"bFVF26W6VB'ƗF6BV6֖277FVЦ2FR7FF&B'v6B6V@&RV7W&VBFV6VF6V@fRW֖VBFRV6Vǒ&PVW&W2Ɩw26֗GFVBFPRb( Ɩ&W&FV7&7( @W&Ɨ6( 2v66VFRF6PvvW&RVB&GF6V7B6v26VFv2&VfW'2FR6VFfW"FR6G&RࠐR6FW2&&W'Bg&60v&6( 2&F7VffW"F6&FW2#2&bFB66V7G2&R6W&FW&W2FRf7BFBFRƖw2F67W76VBFR&vW&R6֗GFVB6g&7FbFRƗRVgN( 2&PFSזV"7F'6w2FBFP6FWBbF6RƖw22'FBࠐv6VFFW0B&W6VBFB6FWC֖ƗF'GfVGW&7BW'&'26֗GFVB'FRVvFVVBvfW&V@FVƖvV6RBGF62BW'&'0FR( 2FƖrbVvV@fG&F'2FRf7BFBFR6@W'&'2fRB&VV&WVFVB2&`FB7V6Ɩw2&RBFVw&FFR&6W2b6V6B06&bFB66V7G267VWFV"WW&V6W26'&V7FǐFW&fRW762g&FW6RB@FF6RW762&7F6RࠐvV6VF62( ėB0FR&&ƖvFbFR7F&খFRƗW2F7V&W@6V6( 2&G7F'( PvG2FB7F'WG&7FVBg&G0vFW"7F&66FWBR&VgW6W0F7GVGBVvvRvFFR&W7@WF2FB6V60FffW"f"G2v7F'7FV@6FVFr6VbvFU26@v"&vFࠐB2FVƖrFB6VF62FB6V6( 26VG&&6R2( g&V666&FrF𦆗2&ƗFW2FV666&FrF0VVG2( F226VG&'WB6V6F'FFR&ƗFb&fFR&W'GआR&WG&22fW&RF7GVG6V6G6Vb( 2f7BG2&60FWBFR6V7BfW7F( 0B2&VƖ6R&VGFR6@v"&vFࠐB2V6FB6VF7V2FW&2b( &&ƖvF( ЧvVFR6RW76R2FP6'W2bFRvfW&VBBFP֖ƗF'FvvrVv&w&W76fP&v旦F00( 6V7@g&G2( FRvfW&VBBFP֖ F'vBƗ7FVF2f@V2f"6V7G>( V&vG2'WBFV"&W&W76fR6v( 2&VGF6'&VBWB'F֖Bf&6W266WG( 2v&VVfBg&2FV旦F`6V7G2BVvVB6V7@g&G2B6VV2FBf"6VF7F&2B6FV֖726fPFR&&ƖvFFVB@FFRvfW&VBBFR֖ƗF'( 0G&fRFB7W&W727W7V7FV@6V7G2ࠐ6VFv27V0vFFR'&v6Rb6VRvF2FBR7FG2f"FV7&7vR2VV֖W2FR6V7G27FBf"F7FF'6RWfV60FR5( F7FF&&v旦F( ХFR7G&7BWVFFB6VFW2&WGvVVFV7&7@Ɩ&W&FV7&7W6W20v&6RvVG'&v6&fW3( Ɩ&W&FV7&7WW&FF0FW&G( 2F֖Bf&2ǐRf&BbFR6&rbƗF6vW"6FVB'FRfVW&&Pw&VVFW&FV27&7'VPbFRVRB6G&7G2vF&7F7&7Ɩv&6G&B6vF6FFb&Vp6旦VB"67WVN( bFRFW&Ц6'&W26RBW&VǒƗF66FBFRVR'VRFV6VfW2FBFRvR&FW"FFR'B FW"2ƗF6ǒ6fW&Vv( vP&RFV7&G2~( b( #ࠐ&P'FFǒ67266WFW2( FV7&7@F7FF'6&RGv6FW2b6( 6Bg&666VV"( VW7Fr'7&FVp'6( %6FƗ7@FV7&6W2FRFV7&7VV@'&r6FƗ7G226VB2F7FF'6v&W'2BFPVRv6RǒFV7&F0'F6F2fFrGW&pVV7F266Ɨ7BFV7&72FPF7FF'6bFR&WF&B6V@FR&r&W&vV6RB66R@2VVB'FR&G&W@&VwV"VV7F2B2FV7&7FB2FVWW"B&R&VࠐFRVB6VF( 0F6V66W&W2vFFP7G&FVw7V&VB'W&6'7Bg&VG&2W6( FP7V'7FGWFbƗF72f"V6֖70v2v2WfRFPVvV27G'VvvRv7B'6Т2FR7V'7FGWFbVW7F0bg&VVFf"F6RbWFF␥( 6'G&^( 27&FVRfVR#खG&GV7F( #( Р7FVBbfvFrF6vRFRWFFfRVWVVW7BBfVB'VƖr77FVF6V7G2ƖR6VFfv@FRfW'6V7G2v&R&6pƖfRBƖ"f"7V66vR( 2W6p6V6( 2( &G7F'( 0&vW&R'&vBVG02W762B66VF7G26VF6VV'&FW2U2fVV6RfW FR6VG'FRƗW>( ( Ɩ&W&FV7&7( BFRVrf7FbFR'VƖr676W2ࠐB2F2&V66R6V6P( 2F6V6FVfVFrFP7FGW2VBGF6rF6RvvBvVVR6vR( 2FBvR66F6V66WfW"&P&W76&RB2v2'&W76&R6&RFR6FV֖72B7F&0FBVFFRBBFV6V&W"#
