The issue about a priest humiliating an unwed, single mom became sensational as a video was taken by the grandmother of the baby named Jieve Datol Frias and uploaded it in her Facebook account. The video went viral and gathered support for the 17-year old single mom saying that the priest shouldn’t have done such thing, thus, she should have given an advice to the mother of the baby.
The priest said on a letter: "I am now making a heartfelt apology to the mother of the child and her immediate family. I deeply regret that I have done this. I only realized how cruel my ways to educate and impart lessons for the event. I am deeply sorry and I humbly ask for your forgiveness." And on the side of the unwed mother, it was hard to forgive at the moment.
An internal investigation is now being done to the priest who is not allowed at the moment to hold a mass and other religious activities in the church until the case is not solved. The mother felt humiliated during that time because there were visitors out there.
On the other hand, Frias, the grandmother thanked those who have supported her child by sharing her Facebook video so that many could watch. Reactions flew on the video in Cebuano language. The internal investigation is still ongoing and we will know soon what will happen to the case. We will update you here soon.
