Parishes offer prayers every mass for successful ASEAN summit

Cebu City (3 October) -- Fr. Carmelo Diola, Cebu Archdiocesan liaison officer to the Cebu Organizing Committee (COC) for the 12th Asean Summit bared all parishes in Cebu are offering prayers after every mass dubbed 'Oracho Imperata' for a successful conduct of the summit.

Ricardo Cardinal Vidal mandated every parish in Cebu to offer prayers to raise the consciousness of the public on how significant the summit is as well as for the awakening of spiritual and moral powers.

Diola said he will asked the Department of Foreign Affairs whether there are pamphlets that can be distributed to the different parishes that answers frequently asked questions so the people may have a better understanding of the Asean event.

The Cardinal sees a positive impact of the summit to Cebu and the country in general as he wants the people to cooperate and support the biggest international event in the country, according to Diola.

Diola, during the 888 News Forum this morning at Parklane Hotel, promoted a church-initiated activity called 'Dila-ab,' a heroic Christian fellowship that looks at Asean and beyond where a good Christian is akin to a good citizen.

The Cardinal's concern is integral human development as the Asean is another phase of globalization and that the Asean body should not be looked at in the context of economic and political perspective but must also include the spiritual and humanistic side, according to Diola.

Diola disclosed that before the start of the COC meeting held earlier this week, Catholic and Muslim prayer were offered as an Imam was likewise invited. Diola said they are exploring the possibility of an interfaith dialogue during the summit. (PIA-Cebu/FCR) [top]
