COMMUNICATIONS from the Bishop

No. 911          Diocese of Marbel, Philippines                    20 January 2017

  1. PRAYER GATHERING FOR PEACE AND UNITY

Pres. Duterte has been waging a violent campaign against illegal drugs, corruption, and criminality – with not much success.

These causes disorder and disunity.

We believe human efforts are in vain without God’s blessing. “If Yahweh does not build the house, in vain the masons toil; if Yahweh does not guard the city, in vain the sentries watch”, (Ps. 127: 1).

What to do?  PRAY. St. Paul writes to Timothy: “My advice is that, first of all there should be prayers offered for everyone – and especially for Kings and others in authority, so that we may be able to live religious and reverent lives in peace and quiet.  To do this is right and will please God our Saviour” (1 Tim. 2: 1-2).

Accordingly, Gov. Daisy Avance Fuentes, South Cotabato, called for a prayer gathering for Peace and Unity on 27 January 2017, 4:00 o’clock in the afternoon, South Cotabato Sports Complex Ground.

All believers of Adwata, Allah and Yahweh are called to this very important gathering.

Please answer positively.  Ad maiorem Dei gloriam – For the greater glory of God.
