Seven cathedrals of Manila have been destroyed, but the eighth remains strong like the Philippines’ people, Cardinal Luis Tagle of Manila said in an invigorating speech to Pope Francis Friday.
“This cathedral has been razed to the ground many times, but it refuses to vanish,” the 57-year-old cardinal said at the close of a Mass with Pope Francis Jan. 16. “It boldly rises from the ruins – just like the Filipino people.”
