Nuncio: Bishop Cortes
The Apostolic Nuncio to the Philippines, Archbishop Giuseppe Pinto, yesterday described the appointment of Rev. Julito Cortes, fourth bishop of the Diocese of Dumaguete, as an “answered prayer”.
Pinto, representing Pope Francis, attended the liturgical reception and canonical installation of Cortes at the packed St. Catherine of Alexandria Cathedral in Dumaguete, and delivered a short message from the Pontiff.
“It is a pleasure to share in your joy as you welcome home His Excellency, Most. Rev. Julito Cortes. He is an answer to your prayers. I am well aware that you have been asking the Lord to give you a shepherd after his own heart,” Pinto said. “He responds by sending to you one of the sons of the church of Dumaguete”.
