Cardinal Tagle Reminds Filipinos Not To Abuse Freedom


Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle of Manila reminded Filipino Catholics not to abuse “God’s gift of human freedom” by making decisions that are against God’s teachings.

Speaking during the celebration of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception in Manila on Dec. 8, the prelate expressed sadness over how people use their freedom to turn away from God.

He said people keep making mistakes because of arrogance. “Instead of admitting mistakes with humility, we look for someone to blame,” said Cardinal Tagle.

In his homily, the Archbishop of Manila said in despite of man’s imperfection, God’s responded with love.

“For love will conquer sin. Love will conquer pride. Love will embrace even sin. God never surrenders,” he said.

Cardinal Tagle urged Filipino Catholics to follow the example of the Virgin Mary who “spread success, love and light” in a world of hate and evil.

“Let go those spreading evil and darkness. Let us learn from Mary,” said the cardinal.
