“Rising with the Risen Christ”

Prison Chaplain
Philippine Jesuit Prison Service, Muntinlupa City

Born and raised in General Santos City, this Ateneo de Manila graduate entered the novitiate about 12 years ago, and was ordained as a Jesuit priest just last year. He also packs quite a punch like his famous “kababayan,” but more in the spiritual sense. Presently assigned to Bilibid to minister to the inmates, Fr. Oliver prays that they may also encounter salvation from Christ in spite of their incarceration. By sharing his thoughts on “Rising with the Risen Christ”, may we also learn to acknowledge the Resurrected Lord in our lives, regardless of whatever difficulties cross our path.

    Just read the reflection for this weekend at of Fr. Francis, I had to read it over and over, wasn’t that story on a confession:”Just last week, I heard the confession of a former drug addict who is now involved in helping those recovering from alcoholism and other addictions…” the details are just so revealing, isn’t this breaking of the seal of confession, or to the say the least, makes people wonder why priests are telling the sins confessed with allusion to a real person that can easily be identifiable?

    • Raymond,

      As long as no names are mentioned and the details are not explicit enough for the person to be identified, there is no breaking of the seal of the confessional–but that is only my opinion. You may like to read more here:

      Here is what the Catechism says:

      1467 Given the delicacy and greatness of this ministry and the respect due to persons, the Church declares that every priest who hears confessions is bound under very severe penalties to keep absolute secrecy regarding the sins that his penitents have confessed to him. He can make no use of knowledge that confession gives him about penitents’ lives.72 This secret, which admits of no exceptions, is called the “sacramental seal,” because what the penitent has made known to the priest remains “sealed” by the sacrament.

      –Dr. Quirino Sugon Jr.
