Ilocos Norte Representative Rudy Farinas had the “selfie of his life” with Pope Francis, but how he managed to have the rare opportunity to photo shoot the pontiff drew mixed reactions from netizens.
This senior prelate has jumped on the “selfie” bandwagon too.
For some of the Philippines’ most powerful clergymen, stepping off the pulpit and into cyberspace felt impossibly daunting until they took their first “selfies” and posted them on Facebook.
Pope Francis says the Internet is a “gift from God” that facilitates communication, but warns that the obsessive desire to stay connected can actually isolate people from their friends and family.
Filipinos abroad may still have a meaningful memorial for their departed loved ones back home by just going online.
