The new leader of the Catholic bishops in the Philippines said Monday they will continue to fight for their church beliefs, including their reasons for opposing the Reproductive Health law.
He said it is the Church’s duty to fight for its stand on various issues.
On Tuesday, the anti-RH law lawyers and petitioners are to attend a Mass at the Archdiocesan Shrine of Nuestra Señora de Guia in Ermita, Manila at 9 a.m.
“Our first support for the SC process will be a Mass and a prayer vigil because that is our first priority. Our first contribution is to show to the world that prayer has power to change the world,” said Villegas.
He added there will be a prayer vigil and a Mass “because we believe in the Church that the Mass can change and enter cosmos.”
Villegas said their second act is to encourage lay people who will be doing the oral arguments and to bless them.
For his part, Antipolo Bishop Gabriel Reyes, chairman of the CBCP’s Commission on Family and Life, said some will be at the SC “to observe the oral arguments.” — ELR, GMA News
