Police increased security for this year’s religious procession of Manila’s Black Nazarene.
Personnel is always policy in the Eternal City, which makes Pope Francis’s choice Sunday to name the 62-year-old Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle of Manila in the Philippines the new prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples a key move indeed.
Church workers in the Archdiocese of Manilla offered their blood as a gift to Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle of Manila when he celebrated his 62nd birthday June 21.
A new law cementing the rights of the poor in the Philippines has been praised by Caritas Manila, the social arm of the Catholic Church in the capital.
Filipino Catholics processed through the city’s Quiapo district with an image of Our Lady of Mount Carmel to “meet” the image of the Black Nazarene May 4 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of arrival of Mary’s image in their country.
The Archdiocese of Manila will be the custodian of a relic of St. John Paul II: a vial of the late pope’s blood that was to be placed in a reliquary for veneration starting April 7.
