Manila’s archbishop is pleading with the faithful once more to attend in-person Masses.
The faithful were urged by the Archdiocese of Manila to visit their local churches once more and take part in holy celebrations, particularly on Sundays.
Moreover, Manila Archbishop Jose Cardinal Advincula advised parishes to emphasize in the catechism the value of physical attendance at Eucharistic celebrations.
In a Friday circular, he stated: “The constant catechesis on the necessity of our faithful going back to our churches for the Sunday Eucharist should be explained in our homilies and in our catechesis.
In order to encourage the faithful to visit the churches, the archbishop also advocated restricting the live broadcasting of Masses, especially on Sundays.
The “Act of Spiritual Communion” prayer is solely for those who participated in the online mass; it is not for the congregation inside the church, Advincula has reminded the church staff.
In order to protect the health and safety of the people, particularly the eucharistic ministers who will receive Holy Communion, the rules also call for establishing a safety policy within the churches.
The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) urged the faithful to physically attend Mass in parishes in October of last year, at the same time that the government loosened its pandemic-related regulations.
In an effort to stop the virus from spreading, churches were kept off-limits to the general public for over three years.
Advincula has additionally let the devout sprinkle holy water on the church’s usable doors.
“After the Easter Vigil, the holy water font, which was emptied during the pandemic, can now be used,” he declared.***
