Have you visited the CBCP website recently?

Visit the CBCP website and notice how conspicuously it does not mention...



Shows the priorities?

And genuine ecumenism is not one of the?

Along with Benedictine Liturgical Renewal...


  1. Well, at least I'll give them some credit for putting up that KofC banner link on the bottom part of their website ( ;)

  2. Yes, that seems strange. It reminds me of the case of L'Osservatore Romano, the "semi-official" news of the Holy See. Lately, L'OR is a big disappointment. However in the same vein, I wonder if the news writing selection of the online CBCP news is reflective of the priorities of CBCP. I say this because I regularly buy and read the hard copy releases of the CBCP Monitor, which is way more substantive than The latest issue (Vol 13 # 22), includes 4 separate articles devoted on the Anglican issue
    (on pages A4,B1,B2 & B5), plus it devoted its editorial on the matter (on page A4), entitled "The Anglican Experiment". I particularly found Fr. Achacoso's full-page treatise entitled "Towards personal ordinariates for former Anglicans: The question of a married clergy (Part I)", very instructive. I am looking forward to reading Part II. By the way, I just discovered there is an online version here:

    God bless.

  3. Perhaps the Catholic Bishops don't want "ecumenical" trouble with the Episcopal Church in the Philippines (ECP) a church with they have close ecumenical relations. Like any Anglican church, the ECP has low church, broad church, and High Anglo-Catholic persuasions. There is talk that in the Cordillera strongholds of the ECP, there are Anglo-Catholic congregations considering the Ordinariate offer. This prompted the Episcopal and Catholic bishops there to do some ecumenical "damage control"
