A man of the cloth and his family got the shock of their lives Monday morning after finding a four-month-old fetus hidden in a basket of fruits.
Monsignor Gerry Santos had just celebrated Mass at the Quiapo Church in Manila around 9 a.m. when he received a basket of fruits from an unknown donor.
“After the mass, pinauwi sa akin ng mother butler. I brought the fruits to my parents’ home because it was our regular lunch and my parents’ house helper showed it to me. It was inside a bottle of Cheez Wiz. Maybe it’s four months old,” Santos said in an interview Monday over the Church-run radio station, Radyo Veritas.
Santos said the aborted baby’s hand and feet were already formed. He said a rosary was also placed inside the cheese spread bottle, which was hidden in a pile of apple and bananas.
He said his family wasn’t able to continue eating lunch after the shocking discovery. His parents were “very disturbed” and “traumatized” by the experience.
After recovering from the trauma, the prelate said his family immediately brought back the fetus to Quiapo Church, “and then I blessed the aborted fetus.” – abs
