The Vatican persuading Filipinos to hang banners and streamers of the images of Jesus rather images of Pope Francis in his visit this country.
Yet this was neglected and hard-headed politicians go against this proposal.
Looking around Manila, roads are full of huge tarpaulin with Pope’s image with names of politicians engraved on it.
Netizens cannot help but to feel politicians are struggling every opportunity they can use to promote themselves.
Billboard sounds like a heartfelt welcome though smells 2016! Photos are widely spreading online.
This is another tarpaulin from Congressman Ferdinand Martin.
Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said the visit is about Pope Francis and must not be under the convenience of politicians’ showboat.
“Mainam po na sa pagdalaw ng Santo Papa ang pangunahing pokus, ang sentral na atensyon ay matutuon mismo sa Mahal na Santo Papa at ‘yung ibang mga naghahangad na maging prominente din ang pagkakilala sa kanila, mas mainam siguro na pumili na lang sila ng ibang okasyon,” he said.
