The program of the visit will be made public by the Holy See later in the year,” Tagle said at a press briefing. “My wish is that the Pope’s visit will be a spiritual typhoon,” said Papal Nuncio to the Philippines Archbishop Guiseppe Pinto, who officially released the news. The Vatican has confirmed the dates for Pope Francis’ second trip to Asia. Visit to Sri Lanka --Francis had already announced his intention to visit Sri Lanka and later meet with victims of Super Typhoon Yolanda, which killed some 6,300 people, left another 1,060 missing and devastated parts of the Visayas last year. The Vatican press office said on Tuesday that Francis would visit Sri Lanka on Jan. 12-15, and spend the remainder of the trip in the Philippines. The full program will be released later.

Francis will become the first Pope in nearly two decades to visit the Far East when he travels to South Korea on Aug. 14-18. He has said he wanted to visit Asia since Pope Benedict XVI never got there.Papal visit committees

Tagle neither confirmed nor denied reports that the Pope would visit the University of Santo Tomas (UST) on España Boulevard in Manila for a youth rally. “But UST always figured in previous [papal] visits to the Philippines.

(ALSO) Palace: Pope Francis visit will be ‘moment of joy’ for PH  

News that Pope Francis will be visiting the Philippines next year was a pleasant surprise, to say the least. “This is a moment of joy,” Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda told reporters on Wednesday. “It’s always a time of joy whenever the pope comes to the Philippines,” he added, recalling the Filipinos’ “exuberance” when the late Pope John Paul II visited the country back in 1981 and 1995. Lacierda said the visit would be something to look forward to, especially for a country like the Philippines. “We are a country [where] majority of the population are Catholics. This would be an opportunity for us to welcome His Holiness Pope Francis,” he said. The spokesperson said they have yet to discuss the preparations for the much anticipated event. Reports said Pope Francis would visit areas devastated by Super Typhoon “Yolanda” (international name: Haiyan).THIS IS THE FULL REPORT

Last Tuesday, Manila and the Vatican jointly announced Pope Francis is visiting the Philippines from Jan. 15 to 19, after visiting Sri Lanka Jan. 12 to 15.

MANILA, AUGUST 4, 2014 (INQUIRER) By Tina G. Santos –Pope Francis will visit the Philippines in January next year, an event that Church officials hope will usher in a “typhoon”—not the destructive variety but a “spiritual” and uplifting one.

Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle on Tuesday announced that Pope Francis would be in the country from Jan. 15 to Jan. 19, 2015.

“Accepting the invitation of the civil authority and the bishops, His Holiness Pope Francis will make an apostolic visit to Sri Lanka from Jan. 12 to 15 and to the Philippines from Jan. 15 to 19, 2015. The program of the visit will be made public by the Holy See later in the year,” Tagle said at a press briefing.

“My wish is that the Pope’s visit will be a spiritual typhoon,” said Papal Nuncio to the Philippines Archbishop Guiseppe Pinto, who officially released the news.

The Vatican has confirmed the dates for Pope Francis’ second trip to Asia.

Visit to Sri Lanka

Francis had already announced his intention to visit Sri Lanka and later meet with victims of Super Typhoon Yolanda, which killed some 6,300 people, left another 1,060 missing and devastated parts of the Visayas last year.

The Vatican press office said on Tuesday that Francis would visit Sri Lanka on Jan. 12-15, and spend the remainder of the trip in the Philippines. The full program will be released later.

Francis will become the first Pope in nearly two decades to visit the Far East when he travels to South Korea on Aug. 14-18. He has said he wanted to visit Asia since Pope Benedict XVI never got there.

Papal visit committees

Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma, who was also at the press briefing, said President Aquino was calling all concerned government agencies and the Filipino people to work closely with the papal visit committees in ensuring the success of the papal visit.

“Filipinos will most certainly accord the Pope the warmth of their hospitality and manifest the fervor of their faith as they welcome the first Pontiff from South America,” Coloma said.

Tagle neither confirmed nor denied reports that the Pope would visit the University of Santo Tomas (UST) on España Boulevard in Manila for a youth rally.

“But UST always figured in previous [papal] visits to the Philippines. We’re coming from that historical datum. Whether or not that will happen, we hope for confirmation at the end of the year,” Tagle told reporters.

* If Pope Francis visits UST, it will be the fourth time for a Pope to visit the university, which was founded by Dominicans in 1611 and declared a “Pontifical University” by the Holy See in 1902 even ahead of European institutions.

The UST was visited by Pope Paul VI in 1970 and by Pope John Paul II in 1981 and 1995.

On Jan. 28, 2011, Pope Benedict XVI sent his representative to Manila and delivered a special message through satellite video to congratulate the UST on its 400th anniversary.

“And we are all aware that he has expressed his desire to visit the victims of Typhoon Yolanda,” Tagle said, referring to Pope Francis.

Central theme

The central theme of the papal visit is mercy and compassion, according to the cardinal.

“That has been the recurring theme of teaching, homilies, actions of the Holy Father. We could prepare best for the coming of the Pope by having our own spiritual renewal. Through spiritual renewal, returning to the word of God, frequenting the Eucharist, returning to God through the sacrament of reconciliation and confession … these are some of the ways we can prepare spiritually for the papal visit,” Tagle said.

“We can also engage in special actions of mercy, corporal acts of mercy, like visiting those in prison, giving spiritual counseling,” he added.

“Accordingly, it is not the logistics, security and infrastructure that best prepare us for the papal visit. Let us be like Pope Francis in his humility and his compassion. Let us make his apostolic journey of mercy to be ours even before he arrives,” Tagle said in a previous interview.

Prepare spiritually

In the pastoral letter issued earlier, the Church hierarchy advised the faithful to prepare spiritually for the coming of the Pope by becoming a “people rich in mercy.”

“Usually, our first reaction to the news of a papal visit is understandably one of euphoria and thanksgiving. The excitement of seeing Pope Francis in the Philippines is rising as the year 2015 gets nearer,” Tagle said.

“However, we must prepare the nation to receive the Holy Father by setting our minds and hearts in communion with our dear Pope Francis, the messenger of peace, love and the apostle of the poor,” he added.–With a report from AP

* Calamities

Tagle added super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) may have changed the nature of Pope Francis' Philippine visit.

He said they initially thought of 2014 being dedicated to the laity as the theme of his visit.

But when Yolanda hit, he said the visit now acquired a new importance - to show Pope Francis' solidarity with the victims.

"Then the typhoon came. The visit now acquired a new configuration. It’s not just a general or generic visit, but especially to show the Holy Father’s solidarity with the victims and survivors and to pray with these people," he said.

"And I also hope that he will be inspired by the resilience tenacity and deep faith of the people who have gone through horrible times,” he said. — Joel Locsin/ELR, GMA News

The prelate added world leaders should remind religious fanatics to respect people's rights to worship, without harassment.

Aquino orders gov’t agencies to ensure success of papal visit By ANDREO CALONZO, GMA NewsJuly 29, 2014 6:50pm 20 0 0 94 Tags: Benigno Aquino III (Updated 8:07 a.m., July 30)

President Benigno Aquino III is tapping the entire bureaucracy to make sure Pope Francis' scheduled visit to the country pushes through in January without any hitch, Malacañang said Tuesday.

"President Aquino is calling on all concerned government offices and the citizenry to work closely with the papal visit committee in ensuring the success of Pope Francis’ Apostolic Visit," Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said in a statement.

Coloma, co-chairperson of the information and media committe for the Papal visit, added that the President had designated Executive Secretary Paquito N. Ochoa, Jr. as the government’s point person for the event.

"Filipinos will most certainly accord to Pope Francis the warmth of their hospitality and manifest the fervor of their faith as they welcome the first Pontiff from South America," Coloma said.

Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle earlier announced that Pope Francis is going to visit the Philippines, a predominantly Roman Catholic country, from January 15 to 19 next year.

The Pope's visit will coincide with the 20th anniversary of the World Youth Day celebration held in the Philippines in 1995 led by the late Pope John Paul II, who was declared a saint this year by Pope Francis.

Tagle said the program of the Pope's visit is "to be made public by the Holy See later in the year."

* However, he revealed the Pope will visit areas affected by super typhoon Yolanda in the Visayas as well as some places in Manila.

Tagle added the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines has encouraged the Filipino people to start observing acts of “mercy and compassion” as early as now in preparation for the Pope's visit.

Asia visit

The 77-year-old Argentinian will visit Sri Lanka from January 12 to 15, before heading to the Philippines—Asia's largest Catholic country, Agence France-Presse reported.

The trip will come six months after Pope Francis' first visit to Asia—an upcoming visit to South Korea scheduled for August 14 to 18 this year.

Asia had been repeatedly been tipped as a destination for possible papal trips as Pope Francis' predecessor Benedict XVI did not travel there during his eight-year pontificate. The continent is considered rich with potential for the Church. The Vatican has said evangelization is a big priority in Asia, AFP said.

Catholics make up just 3.2 percent of the population in Asia, but the number of believers is growing steadily.

Francis will be traveling to Sri Lanka—where some 7 percent of the population is Catholic—in a period of difficulty for the local church.

He is expected to use his visit to encourage the church to push for reconciliation between Sinhalese and Tamils, bitter enemies since the 1983 to 2009 civil war whose animosity is threatening to tear the local Catholic community apart.

The Philippine trip will be held on a very different note: There are around 90 million Catholics in the country—83 percent of the population—and the pontiff will hold masses with the faithful before likely visits to areas devastated by the Yolanda typhoon in 2013.

Third pope to visit PHL

Pope Francis will be the third pope to come to the Philippines after Pope Paul VI in 1970 and Pope John Paul II in 1981 and 1995.

Like Pope John Paul II, Pope Francis is known to veer away from tight schedules set by his officials to pause to greet people along the road.

In Italy where he went on a pastoral visit last June, Pope Francis was reported to have stopped the car that was transporting him from an official event when he saw a sign that read: "Please come and bless little Roberta."

Roberta is a disabled young woman and the pope blessed and kissed her from her stretcher, Catholic News Agency reported.

The CNA said when the pope stopped to greet Roberta, he had come from Cassano allo Jonio where he spoke out against the mafia. —With reports from Agence France-Presse and Veronica Pulumbarit/NB/KG, GMA News

Twenty-eight complainants from several multi-sectoral groups show copies of the impeachment complaint they filed against President Benigno Aquino III before the House of Representatives on Monday, July 21.

Aquino is being accused of culpable violation of the Constitution and betrayal of public trust arising from his implementation of the Disbursement Acceleration Program. GMA News

The Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines on Monday distanced itself from an impeachment complaint lodged against President Benigno Aquino III by activist groups, after learning a senior bishop was among the signatories.

CBCP president and Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates Villegas said Archbishop emeritus Oscar Cruz signed the complaint in his personal capacity and does not represent the CBCP.

"I have no doubt that the good Archbishop himself will like it clarified that his decision to be one of the complainants is his alone, in the exercise of his discretion and as a result of his personal discernment. As in the past, Archbishop Cruz has exhibited a lively interest in the events of our day, as should all Catholics," Villegas said in a statement.

But he stressed the position that any bishop takes on any particular issue "is not necessarily that of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines."

* He added the CBCP, as the highest assembly of Catholic bishops in the Philippines, "neither supports the filing of any impeachment complaint against the President."

Still, he said the CBCP "will neither begrudge anyone, member of the clergy, or laity, the exercise of constitutionally and statutorily recognized rights."

Earlier Monday, Cruz joined critics of the Aquino administration in signing an impeachment complaint that was filed at the House of Representatives.

The impeachment complaint was based on issues including the Supreme Court's declaration of parts of the Disbursement Acceleration Program as unconstitutional.

Popular not always right

Villegas, noting these are "difficult and often confusing times," reiterated the CBCP's call for all to submit to the Constitution, adding there is "a very important distinction between what is popular–or appear to be so–and what is right."

"I pray that all our officials ever be cognizant of this important difference so that all may resist the temptation of pursuing a course of action only because it seems to be popular. We urge respect for the breadth and the limits of constitutionally allocated powers between the great branches of government," he added.

Meanwhile, Villegas said the CBCP stands for an independent judiciary.

"To insist that ours be a government of laws and not of men is not to subordinate the human person to the law, but to uphold the equality of all before the law so that the powerful may not trample upon the weak and so that all enjoy the freedom of the sons and daughters of God," he said.

"Let the government show the citizenry that the law is at all times to be obeyed, for only under such a regime are rights and liberties safeguarded," he added.

Villegas urged citizens to "keep themselves informed, to be circumspect in their actions and in their statements, and to allow their discernment at all times to be inspired by the Gospel, and governed by the law of love." — Joel Locsin/JDS, GMA News
