Father Joel Jason, a former dean of San Carlos Seminary in Manila, said the "belief" that attending the Misa de gallo without fail makes wishes come true is embedded in Filipino tradition.
It is a devotion "not a doctrinal teaching," he
"When we do something [good], God will reward us," said Father Jason
But devotion "does not guarantee the endowment of desires."
said being motivated by wishes transforms worship into a mechanical practice instead of a spiritual one.
"More than the number, I would rather focus on the dedication in the heart," the priest said.
"We want to complete our attendance in the Misa de gallo as an expression of our devotion.
Whether God grants our wishes or not ... is just a bonus," Father Jason
It continues to be a reminder for people "to anticipate the grace of God at the first moments of our day and offer our first work of the day," Father Jason
"The figure of Santa Claus is not doctrinally endorsed, but we do promote devotion to St. Nicholas to inspire us to become charitable," said Father Jason

"They (supporters of the bill) respect the Pope but our concern is that they are acting upon a misconception," said Father Joel Jason, director of the Commission on Family and Life of the Archdiocese of Manila.
"We are hoping that they listen to corrections. [...] We tend to take things out of context … before they make a conclusion they should first get the whole context of what the Holy Father really said."
clarified the Pope's statement, explaining that the Holy Father simply suggested that a male prostitute's use of a condom could be a possible sign of a growing sense that it is not right to engage in sexual activity with no regard for the consequences.
This does not change, the priest said, Benedict XVI's affirmation that the only real solution to AIDS is the humanization of sexuality.
continued, the Pope also stressed how sex should not be treated as a pleasure-inducing drug, to be taken at will, regardless of the consequences.
The Church is still firm in its position, Father Jason
AIDS must be fought effectively.
"Let's not take the minimal option but the maximum option.
Let's not take the condom as a solution," he
said, recommending instead fidelity and abstinence.
