Priest: ‘Aldub’ offers lessons on true love
Love without measure.
That is one lesson that Filipinos can learn from the current hit “Aldub” love story, according to Rev. Fr. Joel Jason, new parish of Mary Mirror of Justice parish in Makati City.
“Whatever Lola Nidora’s challenge may be, even if it’s seems like a death wish, Alden (Richards) does it for Yaya Dub. When you love, you don’t measure. The true measure of love is love without measure,” said Jason as quoted in an article at CBCP News written by Nirva’ana Ella Delacruz.
“You don’t ask, ‘How far can I hurt my spouse until she leaves me?’ or ‘How far can I cheat you?’”, the priest recently told participants of the Young Couples Assembly of the Couples for Christ or CFC.
“We should be maximalistic. The motto (of CFC) ‘Love More’ is good. It shouldn’t be ‘less’. The question should be, how can I add to the love I give?” the CBCP article further quoted the former dean of theology of the San Carlos Seminary.
Aldub is the TV romance of televition celebrity Alden and Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza of YouTube’s dubsmash fame) who are forbidden from meeting by Lola Nidora (played by Wally Bayola). Despite the challenges and the odds, however, Alden and Yaya Dub persist.
The semi-scripted “Kalyeserye” airs Monday to Friday as a segment on noontime show “Eat Bulaga.” CB
