Detained for over a year due to alleged drug charges, former Justice Secretary Leila De Lima persuades Catholic Church to finally take a stand on recent, sudden incidents of k*ll*ngs involving Priests within a six (6) – month period.
Alluding to a possible ‘political persecution’, De Lima questions Manila Archbishop Luis Cardinal Tagle’s decision to fall silent amid the crisis affecting the Catholic church when three (3) priests have recently been sl*yed on isolated incidents by unidentified gunmen.        

According to De Lima, Church Leaders should immediately act upon obtaining justice for the sl*in priests and the welfare of the remaining clergymen and women.

“Where are the words of wisdom from the highest ranking official (Tagle) of the Roman Catholic Church in the Philippines?” De Lima said.

She also added that the Church “could not have chosen the worst time to become silent and passive.”

De Lima continued, “Why is the Church so silent that it seems they have turned their backs, not just [on]their mission, their people, but also [on]their own—the priests who have died protecting and guiding their flock?”

“For a predominantly Catholic country, there seems to be a growing sentiment among the people I have spoken to that the Roman Catholic Church is slowly allowing itself to fall into irrelevancy,” De Lima pointed out.

“Save for a few bishops, priests and nuns, where are the Church leaders who ought to be the first to stand [up]and give an answer?” she said.

“Why are they silent in the face of those who speak maliciously of God, and the call for good behavior?” she added.

To recall, Fr. Mark Ventura was shot d*ad by a motorcycle – riding assailant on April 28, 2018, followed by Fr. Richmond Nilo on June 10,2018, both followed Fr. Marcelito Paez’s untimely death on December 4th of 2017. Fr. Rey Urmenta however, was badly wounded but survived an amb*sh on June 6 in Calamba, Laguna.

De Lima also pointed out that, “Our people are dy*ng. Priests who defend the people are dy*ng. The President, instead of promising to bring justice to those who are sl*ughtering his people, is vilifying the victims.”

“Words that defend those who defend the faith and its people. Words that are not just meant to guide the Filipino people toward a stronger faith, and away from morally ruinous mentalities and actions, but to condemn recent events that seem to make religious leaders fair game for k*lling sprees,” she added.

Meanwhile, Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle have earlier issued a statement condemning the relentless k*llings of priests and said in a statement, "Huwad ang kalayaan kapag pinaglalaruan ang katarungan. Inuulit po natin: taliwas sa kalooban ng Diyos ang pagyurak sa buhay."
