Bishop to voters: Choose a servant, not a boss

Bishop Pablo Virgilio David of Kalookan on Thursday warned those in power to act responsibly or it will destroy them.

Speaking during the Mass of the Lord’s last supper, he lamented those who “act like gods” when they get into a position of power.

“It’s dangerous to be in a position of power, man can get drunk with it and even go crazy,” David said in homily at the Kalookan Cathedral.

“They are the type that the devil can play with. They become a new kind of slave, enthralled by power,” he said.
