  20. 20. <ul><li>Security guards </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Social class – lower brackets of income </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Profession requires a lot of time, patience and loyalty </li></ul></ul><ul><li>From these, we can draw interpretations of Christ as seen from the following groups of questions </li></ul>
  21. 21. Questions 2 and 3 <ul><li>Security guards: ‘Deals with visual images of Christ’ </li></ul><ul><li>They see the humble Christ – the suffering Hesus Nazareno, and the obedient Lamb of God. </li></ul><ul><li>We find this consistent with the traditional notion of Jesus to the Filipinos –humble and accepting towards suffering, the same way we are as a nation, especially with the Spanish evangelization </li></ul><ul><li>Consistent also with their profession, which demands humility in the form of patient, selfless service. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Questions 1, 4 and 6 <ul><li>Deal with notions regarding the word ‘Christ’ </li></ul><ul><li>Answers revolve around the idea of Jesus as a Saviour or Redeemer </li></ul><ul><li>Humility – they recognize themselves in a state of hardship and/or poverty </li></ul><ul><li>The interior of Christ, the connotations of the name and not the image, is that of a Saviour of hope. </li></ul><ul><li>Christ is, then, a God-send Redeemer with the exterior of a relatable human. </li></ul>
  23. 23. Questions 7- 8 and 15 - 16 <ul><li>Delineates the idea of Christ being the Human Christ, differentiated from God the Father </li></ul><ul><li>For security guards, there is a distinct difference between the two – the Father is the authoritative Lord and Master, where the son is the Image of God the Father, more specifically the human image, which they can identify with. </li></ul>
  24. 24. Questions 9 -12 <ul><li>Branch out into the origins of the knowledge of Christ </li></ul><ul><li>Most knowledge of Christ for them come through Church services </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mass </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Bible (through the mass where the Bible is read) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Priests (celebrants of mass, homily) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Religious knowledge are not attained through classroom-based methods, nor modern methods such as media </li></ul><ul><li>Because of their time-consuming profession, the only source of information for them is the Sunday mass </li></ul><ul><li>In a traditional sense, the Church is then held to particularly high regard. </li></ul>
  25. 25. Questions 13 - 14 <ul><li>Reinforce the conclusion of traditionalism through practical references </li></ul><ul><li>They are most drawn to the Holy Mass, Fasting and Abstinence. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Most traditional – obligatory and endorsed by the Church </li></ul></ul>
  26. 26. Who do security guards say Jesus is? <ul><li>To them, Jesus is part of their everyday lives </li></ul><ul><li>Every day, they struggle through their profession and making a living. </li></ul><ul><li>Every day, they live in hope of Christ, their Redeemer – the Redeemer who works by example, teaching them to live in patience and humility. Because they live in hope, they embrace the Church, its tradition, and Jesus himself. </li></ul>
