Discernment mass for Leni focuses on helping VP ‘make difference for most needy’
Robredo says she would work until the 'last day' possible to unite anti-administration forces in the 2022 elections , but did not mention her plans.
The mass, which coincided with the Feast of Our Lady of Peñafrancia was led by Rev. Fr. Bienvenido Nebres SJ, former president of Ateneo de Manila University."We come together for this mass for our 25th Sunday of the year to pray in particular for our Vice President Leni Robredo as she and her team discern for her candidacy . . . How better she can serve our people especially the poor and needy," Nebres said, inviting the public to do their share in supporting Robredo.
"(Jesus) identifies with the least of our brothers and sisters, and we know the least of our brothers and sisters among us continues to suffer and suffer very much. We learn daily of so many affected by COVID . . . We know about the struggle of front liners, we know about hunger and pain of children and so many people.
"I invite you to consider Pope Francis' invitation to begin by looking for concrete people and realities and the margins . . . If we support them, walk with them, it can be also our way of helping Vice President Leni make a difference for the most needy of our country. headtopics.com
