2. CBCP’S POST ELECTION STATEMENT

No. 880            Diocese of Marbel, Philippines                     28 May 2016

Title: “Get up, Let us Go” (Mt. 26: 46)

“To those who have been voted to office, we assure them of our prayers, principally for Wisdom, that they may discern God’s will for his people and courageously do as he bids.

“…God calls you to service and to care for the weakest and the most distressed in our midst. Children need care that cannot be postponed.  And many women still find themselves in situations of exploitation.  Indigenous people remain marginalized and the vaunted growth in the economy still has to mean something significant for Filipinos living outside urban areas.”

“To those who did not succeed, you, as persons, as sons and daughters of God, are infinitely so much more than the positions after which you aspired.  Rather than becoming despondent and discouraged, you should challenge yourselves by asking how it is that the Risen Lord sends you ‘to make disciples of all nations.’”

“The greatest promise the Church can offer any government is vigilant collaboration and that offer, we make now.” (Archbishop S. Villegas, 9 May 2016)
