Catholics in Manila are urged to attend a "Solidarity Mass for the Moral Choice" on April 6.
The event will take place at the National Shrine of the Mother of Perpetual Help (Baclaran Church) at 9:30 in the morning.
It is organized in view of the national and local elections to be held on May 9.
Jose F. Cardinal Advincula, Manila Archbishop, will lead the Mass while Kalookan Bishop and Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) President Pablo Virgilio David will be the homilist.
In the latest pastoral letter (March 27, 2022), Bishops said, “Be concerned about the welfare of others.”
Philippine bishops urged Catholics to “continue praying, doing good to our neighbor, offering sacrifices and begging God for the grace of a credible, peaceful and successful election for our common good.”
It is in this spirit that CBCP invites all to be part of a “Solidarity Mass for the Moral Choice, said Father Isidro Marinay, chancellor of Mania Archdiocese.
Bishops also encourage “participating and expressing ourselves in a just, respectful and peaceful manner. Let us fight indifference. Let us especially be concerned for the welfare of our people and country.”
Radio Veritas Asia (RVA), a media platform of the Catholic Church, aims to share Christ. RVA started in 1969 as a continental Catholic radio station to serve Asian countries in their respective local language, thus earning the tag “the Voice of Asian Christianity.” Responding to the emerging context, RVA embraced media platforms to connect with the global Asian audience via its 21 language websites and various social media platforms.
