Go beyond ‘artificial’ devotion to Sto. Niño



Show your devotion to the Child Jesus not only by joining processions.

An official of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines on Saturday issued this call to Sto. Niño devotees converging in Tondo, Manila, for a feast today.

“It becomes artificial when you are only praying fervently during the feast day and then the rest of the year you are not. A real devotee should also be a real Christian every day,” said Fr. Edu Gariguez, executive secretary of the CBCP’s National Secretariat for Social Action.

“Worship and life should not be separate,” said Gariguez, who served for three years at Sto. Niño de Tondo Parish. Tina G. Santos
