Bishop sees ray of hope
in suspension of RH law

Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra called the Supreme Court suspension yesterday of the Reproductive Health Law for 120 days a ray of hope in the Diocese of Bacolod’s fight against it through its “Team Patay, Team Buhay” tarpaulins.

“We thank God and all those who have been praying with us,” Navarra said.

The bishop yesterday led the Diocese of Bacolod’s team at a more than 4-hour SC en banc hearing on their petition to permanently halt the Commission on Elections from removing what it calls the oversized “Team Patay Team Buhay” tarpaulin in front of the San Sebastian Cathedral in Bacolod City.moremoremore

Hontiveros fights back

Team PNoy senatorial bet Risa Hontiveros yesterday said the Reproductive Health Law gives life and this is what they have been fighting for.

“If the Diocese (of Bacolod) has brought the fight to the Supreme Court, we will sustain the fight against anti-RH in Bacolod City,” she said.

Hontiveros launched in Bacolod City yesterday, Team RH, the pro-RH campaign that aims to counter the “voter’s miseducation” initiative of anti-RH bishops through their Team Patay tarps, on the same day the Supreme Court issued a temporary restraining order against the implementation of the RH Law.moremoremore

Pope embraces
‘poorest, weakest’

VATICAN CITY – Pope Francis knelt at the tomb of St Peter and donned the symbols of papal power at a sumptuous inauguration yesterday, vowing to embrace the "poorest, the weakest" of humanity.

Nearly 200,000 pilgrims cheered Latin America's first pontiff in St Peter's Square, waving flags from around the world as the newly-elected pope promised that his would be a "lowly, concrete and faithful" papacy.

In Bacolod City, Bishop Vicente Navarra called on the faithful to offer prayers for the Pope to be guided always by the Holy Spirit.moremoremore
