MANILA, Philippines — Manila Auxiliary Bishop Broderick Pabillo is now free of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

This was announced by Fr. Fr. Carmelo Jek Arada, as he read Pabillo’s written homily during Mass held at the Our Lady of Peñafrancia Parish Church on Sunday.


Pabillo said he tested negative for the coronavirus based on the results of his second swab test.

“Nagpapasalamat ako sa inyo sa inyong patuloy na dasal para sa akin, damang dama ko ang iyong mga dasal,” Arada read Pabillo’s homily. “Wala naman ako nararamdaman ng sintomas. at sa awa ng Diyos, ngayon ay COVID-free na ako ayon sa second swab test ko this week.”


(I am very thankful for your prayers for me. I do not feel any symptoms. And by the mercy of God, I am now COVID-19 free according to the second swab test taken this week.)

Pabillo announced on July 23 that he tested positive for COVID-19.
