Cardinal Advincula encourages faithful to collaborate to achieve fullness of life

“Ang PCNE X ay bunga ng pagkakaisa ng pagkilos, tinig, at puso ng maraming tao.”

This was the homily of Manila Archbishop Jose F. Cardinal Advincula as he presided over the Thanksgiving Mass last February 9 for the recently concluded Philippine Conference on New Evangelization (PCNE X).

Cardinal Advincula pointed out that Jesus Nazareno calls the faithful to restrain individualism in order to achieve the fullness of life.

“Ang Mahal na Poong Hesus Nazareno mismo ang tumatawag sa atin para tumawid at magbago. Tinatawag niya tayo upang tawirin ang mga hidwaan natin, at lagpasan ang pagkakanya-kanya natin, ang ganid natin, ang pagkamakasarili natin. Tumawid patungo sa kabanalan at kaganapan ng buhay,” he said.

In his message for the PCNE X Volunteers, the Cardinal hopes that the collaboration manifested to one another in the conference may lead them to be drawn closer to Jesus, which enables them to move forward in their journey.

“Sana ang pagtutulong-tulong ng mga kumilos sa PCNE ay naging karanasan ng pagsalya at pagtawid kapag sumasalya ang mga deboto sa Traslacion, lalo silang nagdidikit-dikit, at lalo silang nadidikit kay Hesus,” he said.

“Ang pagsalya ay kilos ng pagkakaisa, pagdadamayan, pagbubukluran. Si Hesus ang tumitipon sa atin upang makausad sa Traslacion, at makasulong sa buhay,” he added.

The Philippine Conference on New Evangelization (PCNE X) was held last January 19-21 at the UST Quadricentennial Pavilion, España, Manila with the theme ‘Salya: Let us cross to the other side (Mark 4:35). (By Hazel Boquiren/RCAM-AOC | Photo by Mio Angelo Hermoso/RCAM-AOC | Photogallery)
