THE Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has called on the faithful to do acts of charity during the Holy Week.
CBCP president and Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates Villegas on Tuesday said that doing acts of charity, in addition to praying and offering sacrifices, is one of the meaningful activities that Catholics could offer.
“If you want to truly make a good Holy Week love much. Love more,” Villegas said “Give to the poor. Visit the jail. Visit hospital wards.”
“This pilgrimage to the poor will add to the holiness of our times,” he added..
Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle also called on the faithful to learn from Jesus in facing their enemies and challenges.
“Let us emulate what Jesus did in having faith. Let us put our faith in God and we will have the peace of mind and we will learn to love our enemies,” said Tagle.
