The Need for an Alternative Spirituality. In our Third World, Philippine situation, we should be inspired by Jesus. We have to think, feel, act and see life as Jesus did. Like Jesus, we ought to speak more about social justice. Like Jesus, we must exert more effort in social action apostolate and other works for human development. Like Jesus, our prophetic stance should be translated into works of liberation from all forms of evil in human affairs. How to carry this out in actual life deserves a separate treatment which is beyond this essay’s scope. Be that as it may, it is already a big leap for us to have realized that the mission of the biblical Jesus is more than our common sin-soul-heaven oriented spirituality. We need an alternative spirituality that can address the pain-laden concerns of the poor and oppressed. And this alternative spirituality may happen in us if we listen well to the message of social justice that is voiced out by Luke’s ‘Our Father.’
