Chapter 31:

The Sermon

(The Summary of “Noli Me Tangere”)

In his sermon, Padre Damaso reprimands some natives who, after receiving education in Manila and in Europe, are now contented in not kissing the hands of a friar and not offering him the honor due his rank.  Padre Damaso declares that these individuals would get what they deserve and that God would punish them for their wicked acts.  At the end of the sermon, Elias approaches Ibarra, and warns him that his life is in danger.
