I’m no Gloria fan, but just how will Fr. Robert Reyes measure the success of his hunger strike is anybody’s guess. C’mon, I mean will he start eating as soon as Gloria steps down? Or when the rallies from all over the country die down? I know, I know! Maybe it’s when there’s world peace.
Whatever it may be, I’m sure of one thing – it’s life as usual in his Project 4 parish. Since he got that post, he’s almost always somewhere else that they’re now used to not having a parish priest at all. He’s always been running and running for causes (that are, at times, quite conflicting), while the good people of Project 4 are looking for a leader in their pastoral activities. Well, if there’s anything good to this, at least these people learned to bond together and help themselves.
