Father Mark Sagrado of Our Lady of Fatima Parish celebrated the mass at the Conference Room of the office. One of the very striking messages he shared during his homily was to know when is the right time to decide for work, for a particular action, or for personal decisions, etc… He said to use the formula RTC as our guide to decide. “RTC means right, true and correct. If these three elements are present, then decide. If it is right and true but it is not correct, then don’t decide. If it is true and correct but not right, then don’t decide. If it is right and correct but it is not the truth, then don’t decide,” said Fr. Sagrado.
