The new coffee table book, “Manila Cathedral: Restoring a Monument of Faith, Architecture and History” was personally handed by Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle to Pope Francis with Rev. Fr. Reginald Malicdem, rector of The Manila Cathedral during their Visita Ad Limina Apostolorum in Rome. 

Cardinal Tagle and Fr. Malicdem were with other Filipino bishops to report to the Pope the status of their dioceses. 

Also during the Ad Limina Visit, Pope Francis received a small replica of “La Virgen Milagrosa de Badoc” as a gift from Bishop Renato Mayugba of Laoag, according to CBCPNews.

Bishop Mayugba personally thanked the pope for the two privileges he granted recently his diocese: the pontifical coronation of “La Virgen Milagrosa de Badoc” and the elevation of the church into a Minor Basilica. (Jheng M. Prado / RCAM-AOC)
