All roads lead to Lipa cathedral on Dec. 8

Posted By: admin On:

MANILA, Dec. 7, 2012— Thousands of people are expected to converge at the San Sebastian Cathedral in Lipa City for the formal launching of the “Total Consecration Movement” on Saturday.

Organizers said the event, coinciding with the feast of the Immaculate Conception, will be highlighted with a Mass to be presided by Lipa Archbishop Ramon Arguelles at 5pm.

TCM is a multisectoral organization backed by many bishops, which calls for the total consecration of the “Filipino nation to Jesus through Mary.”

Led by Marie Borromeo Cancio, the TCM, according to her, is a response to God’s call for the lay faithful to pray as one nation.

“The TCM hopes to reenergize the Christian faith especially among baptized Catholics who have drifted away and or are no longer practicing their faith as a response to address the social ills of the country that is currently hemmed in by poverty, corruption, violence, calamities and vendetta,” Cancio said.

Besides Arguelles, the TCM which was started in the 18th century by St. Louis Marie de Monfort is also supported by Cebu Archbishop Emeritus Ricardo Cardinal Vidal, CBCP President and Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma and former Jaro Archbishop Angel Lagdameo. (CBCPNews)
