Ayaw ni Bishop ang magselfie kayo... Pati ba naman yan pakikialaman? Looool!!

"Selfies" may be all the rage among tech-savvy youth these days, but a Filipino Catholic bishop warned that too much of this may be a sign of selfishness.

Ironically, the statement comes just weeks after no less than Pope Francis himself posed for a selfie with youths in the Vatican.

Former Manila auxiliary bishop Teodoro Bacani Jr. said the selfie—a photo a user takes using a smartphone's front-facing camera—shows unnatural self-centeredness.
“We are selfish, this is what we need to do away with. [It's all about] I, me, myself [like] those who keep on taking selfie photos,” he said in a homily, excerpts of which were posted on the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines Tuesday.

He said the selfie phenomenon reveals a culture that needs God more than ever before.

“What God wants to say is, ‘Leave your selfishness.’ This is what you need to leave and live in God instead because in God is true peace,” he said.

Bacani called for a return to God or repentance, which he said is part of the message Our Lady gave to three children in Fatima, Portugal in 1917.

He said penance means returning to God and does not necessarily mean extreme physical mortifications or self-inflicted pain.

Bacani pointed out prayer and penance form a formula for lasting peace. — TJD, GMA News
