Nuncio Papal: BBM is eager to collaborate with the Catholic Church

MANILA, Philippines — The Vatican’s ambassador in Manila said on Monday that President-elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. had pledged to work with the Catholic church.

“We had a very fruitful, encouraging, and good talk, and the President-elect assured me of his intention to collaborate, engage closely with the church and the Holy See,” said Archbishop Charles John Brown, Papal Nuncio to the Philippines.

Brown was one of five foreign dignitaries who paid a visit to the incoming President on June 10 at the BBM headquarters in Mandaluyong City.

Previously, the Catholic church guaranteed that interactions with the government were maintained for the benefit of all citizens.

Kidapawan Bishop Jose Colin Bagaforo, national director of Caritas Philippines, said they will engage with the next administration on a program that will address people’s rights and dignity, as well as promote truth and honest governance.

The church is also praying for Marcos’ administration to be of true service, based on fairness and respect for the people’s dignity.

Marcos was elected as the 17th President of the Philippines, receiving nearly 31 million votes in the May 9 elections.

On June 30th, he will begin his six-year term.
