MANILA, Philippines—Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle on Tuesday urged the Catholic faithful to pray and attend an overnight vigil in Makati for the defeat of the reproductive health bill.

Tagle urged the faithful to gather at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Makati starting at 6 p.m. Tuesday as Congress convenes Wednesday to vote on the RH bill.

“Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle has called for a Prayer Vigil starting with a Mass at 6:30 p.m., December 11, the eve of the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe,” said a statement from the archdiocese of Manila.

“The overnight vigil continues (Wednesday), with Masses at 6 a.m., 8 a.m., 12 noon, 5 p.m., 6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. Cardinal Tagle will celebrate the Mass at the Shrine at 12 noon. He personally invites everyone to go to the Shrine for the vigil and/or the Masses,” it added.

Catholics opposed to the RH bill are invoking the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the patroness of the Catholic pro-life movement.

Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma, president of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines, also invoked her protection in “these difficult and trying days” for the Church.

“As you resume your deliberations on the Reproductive Health Bill, I pray that through the gracious intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe, whose feast day we celebrate today, you may be bountifully guided by the Holy Spirit,” Palma said in a letter to lawmakers.

“Recalling Our Lady’s words when she first spoke to the Indian peasant St. Juan Diego on that cold December day on Tepeyac hill in Mexico 481 years ago, I am confident she will grant us the fruit of her affection and protection if we ask for it. In these difficult and trying days, we humbly ask for it,” he added.

Palma noted that Pope Benedict XVI had stated that “it is not the law of the strongest that must prevail” and that the public would revolt against an unjust law.

“This makes it vital for every society to remove everything that could cast suspicion on the law and its ordinances, because it is only in this way that arbitrary conduct on the part of the state can be eliminated and freedom can be experienced as something genuinely shared by all,” Palma said.

“The law will come under suspicion, and people will revolt against the law, whenever it is perceived, no longer as the expression of a justice that is at the service of all, but rather as a product of despotism, of an arrogance that is clothed in the garments of a law by those who have the power to do so,” he added.

Palma urged lawmakers to dump the RH bill, adding that the Philippines needed a law “to unite rather than divide.”

“We need law to affirm and protect the truth about the dignity of the human person, who has been created in the very image of God; the sanctity of the family, the basic social unit which even our Constitution recognizes as the foundation of the nation; and the inviolability of the social institution of marriage, which the Constitution likewise recognizes as the foundation of the family,” Palma said.

“As politics allows free men and women to participate in the divine governance of the universe, governments must enact laws whose reason and justice emanate from God,” he added.

Palma urged lawmakers to respect the “right to life, the right of married couples to found a family according to their religious beliefs and moral convictions, and to be the primary educators of their children.”

“Here as elsewhere, the truth must be the basis of the law, rather than the result of legislation,” Palma said.

“Amidst the many voices trying to influence the outcome of your deliberations, I call upon you in the words our Lord first said to Abraham, `Do not be afraid!’ Listen to what God is saying; `obey God rather than men’ (cf Ac 5:29). For `unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain’ (Ps 127), and the Lord Himself has assured us, `I am with you always, until the end of the age’ (Mt 28:20),” he added.

        So it is a good thing that China has an RH law that limits the number that a family  can reproduce.IF not,the Chinese could very well be living in the Spratly Islands and Scarborough, deflating our food resources in the West Philippine Sea.

      it’s not the place. it’s the noble cause they are fighting for. bakit meron bang makikinig doon sa Tondo? the voiceless people there are coming to Makati…let us be judgmental, it is a projection of our own struggle deep inside.

    Bishop Palma is quoted as saying “governments must enact laws whose justice and reason emanates from God”.
    What?
    Did he really said that? I do not think he could say that in a lot of countries where the majority of the people are also Catholics.
    He must have missed a lot of trains.
    And I guess he is the guy to tell the government what laws have justice and reason emanated from God?

    • scphlma

      do you know what is good from what is evil? it is everyone’s right to know it and live by it. that is freedom. this is a democratic country…do you believe there are fundamental truths and one of these is the right to life? God is there when there is a fight for what is right, what is just, for the fundamental truth. may we have respect to those who believe that being pro-poor is by being concerned with the total person, not solely with the half of the person or poor by simply providing with contraceptives…the poor will become poorer, morally more so economically,,,damn to those who will approve these killing contraceptives!

    • Ganymede

    Population growth and climate change are being used as scare-tactics by the foreign-funded RH bill special interest groups to advance their racist population control and eugenics agenda. An aging population will lead to decline in economic growth and higher healthcare costs. The foreign-funded pro-RH special interest groups are the modern-day profiteers and false prophets of DOOM and GLOOM.

        Conscience can err. Its judgment is not absolute. Therefore it “must be informed and moral judgment enlightened. A well-formed conscience is upright and truthful. It formulates its judgments according to reason, in conformity with the true good willed by the wisdom of the Creator. The education of conscience is indispensable for human beings who are subjected to negative influences and tempted by sin to prefer their own judgment and to reject authoritative teachings.” -CCC #1783.

    “attend an overnight vigil in Makati for the defeat of the reproductive health bill” Cardinal Tagle

    WHY HAVE A VIGIL IN MAKATI?
    people in Makati don’t need RHbill – because they can afford the most expensive contraceptives and they all have health/medical insurance and they can afford the best medical assistance.

    WHY NOT HAVE VIGIL in areas like PAYATAS, TONDO, OR ANY SLUM AREAS lalo na iyong puro squater living along the water ways, ilalim ng tulay, sa minahan ng basura.
    Mga tao dito kailangan ang RHbill- let see their reaction lalo’t pag naglabasan sila na karay-karay ang mga gutum, payat, malmourished, at kaawa-awang mga bata pati na ang nanay.

    Palagay ko itong mga bishops na ito ni minsan hindi pa tumapak sa mga lugar na ganito kaya gusto makati-SOSYAL nga naman walang namamantot na basura at naglipanang “ebak”.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EDXEVEFHW2ZT5VWHDWBNM6XGE4 RyanE

    RC church sounds very overacting and full of… ignorance! RH law will be non-compulsory.. it’s up to the couples to choose whether they will use natural, artificial, combination thereof, or whatever method they think is suited for them. The state will not impose or force contraceptives or condoms to couples or to anyone.

    RH law will educate couples and give them choices. The law will mandate government hospitals and clinics to assist and give proper reproductive health services to women, especially the poor.

    RH law is against abortion and prohibits abortifacient pills. So why the heck are these bishops still opposed to the bill? The answer is they want to continue their dictate and control over the populace for the glory of Vatican. These priests and bishops should be declared as traitors for collecting money from Filipinos and remitting same to Vatican which is a foreign nation.

    PASS THE RH BILL and end RC church’s hypocrisy in the country!

      Do not only think of “Freedom FOR” but also “Freedom TO”.

        BTW – by definition every organized religion is a “cult”, including the corrupt Catholic Church of the Philippines.

    Trabaho rin ng Catholic Church na mag-salita about the Absolute Truth , just like the Trabaho ng Governo mag-bigay budget para sa Condom, Pill at bagong dept at trabaho para mag-service or dispense ng mga ito.  Ok maraming Priest na problematic…. pareho din sa Governo ah! worst is that they can still hold office…… tamakbo nga or naging fugitive…. nahuli at hindi na maka-trabaho….. so what’s the big deal – Beer_leader? Puro may flaws… but who is the worst… these stupid no priest  that broke the law and eventually be incarcerated or the politician that stole and destroyed millions of lives thru corruption and back door deal like these RH bill or shall i say – new business development and got away with it and can still go to work or even ran from of a gov’t position while in jail?

      Iba ang trabaho sa pakikialam.  Iba ang pagpigil bago may buhay at iba naman ang may buhay na tapos pipigilin.

      “Absolute Truth”…, my foot.
      And it is NOT the Catholic Church speaking.
      These are men, in robes, speaking…, trying to protect their “Pride” not the Church.

    What if INC’s Manalo calls the Ministers to show force to pass the RH Bill ?

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/MJFXCRSCXRWPLL42QQKSINC3AQ Mamerto

      The INC moves &/or “show of force” usually…
      when it is already a “sure thing”.

    The timing of the appointment of Tagle as cardinal and the canonization of a Filipino saint was a strategic move by the Vatican. The Vatican knows that the RC church is losing its grip on the people. If the RH bill get enacted, that would be the end of their centuries old domination on PH, but that’s not what this bill is all about for us. It has to pass for us to move forward because this spiraling population growth is not sustainable. WE NEED TO PASS THE RH BILL NOW!!!

      The Catholic Church had lost its gripe on the Ph Populace decades ago.
      It just showed its influence for a short while during EDSA-1 and 
      the framing of our ’87-Constitution

    Cardinal Tagle…, I LIKE You., but…,
    I do not think GOD will answer your Prayers about RH.
    I think HE has found something better. ( which is to approve the RH.)

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/R5KCOM7LDWVP3VCKEGK6N5CWGQ Krister

      who are you to know the mind of God? and who are you to think that he has found something better.. God is all knowing, God possesses great wisdom, a wisdom different from ours… You know what, what kind of god will he be if he contradicts himself as a god of love…

    “We need law to affirm and protect the truth about the dignity of the human person, who has been created in the very image of God; the sanctity of the family, the basic social unit which even our Constitution recognizes as the foundation of the nation; and the inviolability of the social institution of marriage, which the Constitution likewise recognizes as the foundation of the family,” Palma said.

    I’m a devote catholic but I also believe God wants us to use our heads first ex. passing the RH bill rather than increase the neglected poor. Now is the time the Church practices what they preach- roll up your sleeves and run to the typhoon ravaged areas to comfort and help the poor people who survived and the deceased to rest in peace ASAP!

    • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.psanjuan Jonathan P. San Juan

      Passing the RH will set a death culture for us. Not now but years and years, no more people in this world. Imagine, we are the only nation who have people who will consume products, who may dream to buy houses etc. Kaya ang economy ng US at Europe bumababa coz they no longer have people to buy. They now see us as opportunities for market, the only problem, they want to sell us the manufactured condoms which are no longer bought in their countries dahil wala na ngang tao.

      • Javi Brias Arrastia

        I think you should study some more before making unfounded comments. The US and European economies are not down because there are no more people to buys goods, they are down because people have bought too much and can’t pay their loans. “…condoms are no longer bought in their countries dahil wala na ngang tao.” Unbelievable.
