Manila archdiocese tells public to pray, fast on June 1 as pandemic lingers

MANILA – The Archdiocese of Manila on Tuesday urged the public to join them in prayer and fasting on June 1 as the COVID-19 pandemic drags on.

Apostolic Administrator of Manila Bishop Broderick Pabillo underscored the importance of the activity in his pastoral instruction titled “We Humble Ourselves”, reminding Filipinos to beg for God’s mercy and forgiveness during the difficult time.

“We are nearly 15 months into the COVID-19 pandemic. While we are grateful for the scientific and medical progress being done to stop this pestilence, as a community of faith, we unceasingly use the resources of our faith to call upon us heavenly help,” said Pabillo.
