Breakfast Meeting with the Cardinal for World Interfaith Harmony Week

by Tonette de Jesus
On its 8th year, the theme of the Breakfast Meeting with the Cardinal was celebrating truth, sincerity, and forgiveness. Attended by the diplomatic corps, institutions from many religious denominations, and other institutions, the meeting began with a Welcome Address from the Minister of Ecumenical and Inter-Faith Affairs of the Archdiocese of Manila, Rev. Fr. Carlos V. Reyes.

The highlight of the event was the Message from His Eminence Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle, D.D., the Archbishop of Manila. A highlight of his message centered on the importance of forgiveness being a choice freely given and how being unable to forgive can be a prison in itself. Nevertheless, while forgiveness can be offerred, justice cannot be forgotten. The meeting concluded with a fellowship breakfast and a photo opportunity.
