    Our main celebrant is His Eminence Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle, Archbishop of Manila.

    “Be the face of God and be the hope of others.” 

    “If others, cannot see the face of God, be the face of God. If others cannot hear the voice of God, be the voice of God. And if others cannot feel the saving power of God, be their arms and help them to stand again,”  This is what Luis Antonio Gokim Tagle said during one of his prayer service in Manila.  He is one of the youngest cardinal in the College of Cardinals and the archbishop of Manila.
    He was a seminarian at the San Jose Major Seminary and went on to study theology at the Loyola School of Theology, completing his licentiate and doctorate at the Catholic University of America in Washington DC.

    He was ordained to the priesthood at the age of 24.  In 1997 Blessed Pope John Paul II appointed Fr Tagle as a member of the International Theological Commission, where he became a close collaborator of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI , who was president of the commission at the time.

    The Holy See appointed Tagle as the 32nd Archbishop of Manila on October 13, 2011 and a year later on October 2012, Archbishop Tagle was appointed into the College of Cardinals.  Recently, Pope Francis named Cardinal Tagle as member of the Council for the Laity.
