I recently visited Rome, Italy and met one of my radio listeners, Fr. Gaspar Sigaya, OP, the first Filipino archivist at the Basilica Santa Sabina. (Ka-tense, may listener akong pari ha!)

Fr. Gaspar Sigaya, OP, with the author

He started listening to my show when he was still assigned at the Sto. Domingo Church in Quezon City.

He may be listening to my show religiously (religiously talaga ha?!), but he is, more than anything, an Aldub (Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza) loyalist. (Wala akong laban sa Aldub!)

Fr. Gaps was already in Rome when the Aldub phenomenon started.

“Nasimulan ko ’yan. ’Yung unang pabebe wave nina Alden at Maine sa isa’t-isa,” he said. “Sa simula palang ay nagustuhan ko na sila.” (Sana si Alden magustuhan din ako!)

Since he is busy managing documents for the Catholic Church, he now simply relies on “Eat Bulaga!’s” YouTube uploads to get the latest about Aldub. (Kakaiba ang trip ni father – from holy documents to Aldub! )

“Araw–araw ’yan, sinusubaybayan ko ’yan, basta may oras. Tapos minsan napagkukuwentuhan pa namin ’yan ng ilang kaibigang pari at kapwa Pilipino rito,” Fr. Gaspar shared. (Sana pag usapan n’yo rin po ako. Chos!)

He admires Alden and Maine for espousing wholesome attitude. “Natutuwa ako sa values na ipinapakita nilang dalawa. ’Yung konsepto ng tamang panahon ay maganda, dahil totoong walang short cut pagdating sa isang relasyon.” (Ay, ako madalas short cut!)

The Dominican priest also has good words for their individual traits. (Sa akin po, may good po ba?)

“Gusto ko ’yung pagiging down to earth na ipinapakita ni Maine, kahit alam nating galing s’ya sa may kayang pamilya. Si Alden naman, ’yung wagas na pagmamahal sa kanyang ina. Magandang halimbawa ang mga ’yan sa manunuod,” Fr. Gaspar said.

He has this prayer for the phenomenal tandem: “Tulad ng ‘Guy And Pip’ noon, may saturation point ’yan. Maaaring may mga gawin silang proyekto na ’di na sila magkasama pero ’pag magkasama sila, nandu’n pa rin ’yung kilig at nandu’n pa rin ’yung values na nasimulan nila maipakita sa mga Pinoy.” (Penge rin po prayer father, birthday ko po today, June 8. ’Di ba ’yan po date nu’ng mag-decide kayo maging pari? Push!)
