Arch. Tirona: Yes to karate, no to guns


Archbishop Rolando Tria Tirona
MANILA (Bicol Standard) -- Learning martial arts like karate may be an alternative to toting guns for priests to protect themselves.

This is the statement of Caceres Archbishop Rolando Tria Tirona today here as he celebrated mass for the third anniversary of Pope Francis’ Encyclical Laudato Si.

"Priests cannot be like Superman or Spiderman," he said. "They should be able to protect themselves if the need arises."

This came after the murder of three priests in the Philippines in the last six months.
