MANILA, Philippines – Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle called on the participants of the “Million People March” to be “guided by their conscience.”

“In our character, family and friends, in the markets, sidewalks and banks, in our schools, offices and businesses, on television, radio and the movies, in our text messages, Internet and the Web, in our prisons, camps and courts, in or places of worship, mosques and churches, in our Congress, Senate and Executive, in our rivers, seas, and air, in the mountains, fields, and plains, in our country and the world, let us prove that the Filipino is honorable,” Tagle said in Tagalog during the rally at the Luneta Park in Manila Monday.

Tagle said he prayed that people would “fear God, value others, love country, take care of the environment and be honorable above all else. Systems and laws should pave the way for heroism”.

After Tagle’s short talk, the cardinal, who was driven to tears following the expose on the P10 billion pork barrel scam, led the crowd in singing “Pananagutan”.
