Feeling Pari nanaman

Taken at ST. MARY'S ACADEMY of GUIUAN in Eastern Samar during the blessing of pedicabs given to families affected by supertyphoon "Yolanda". 
Susme, si Sister naglaro ng pari-parian at nag bless ng pedicabs. Kahit buhusan ng timba-timbang holy water yan hindi yan blessed.

  1. This post is correct in pointing out that nuns do not have the sacramental capacity (i.e. Holy Orders) to bless these pedicabs, but perhaps future posts could contextualize the picture. Why did the nuns do this in the first place? Is this an issue of the "clericalization of the laity" or does this exhibit the larger problem of the lack of priests? Was the local parish priest "too busy" to go out and bless these pedicabs? If we want to help our Church, perhaps it is better to point out what the larger issues are and what can be done about them, than to post the perceived errors alone.
