Presidential candidate Leni Robredo has received more support from lay organizations, this time those from the Archdiocese of Lipa and the apostolic vicariates of Calapan and Taytay.
The Lipa Archdiocesan Council of the Laity said their support for Robredo was made after a “process of discernment” through a series of meetings and dialogues.
“We believe that a good leader must be truthful, honest, just, and be able to serve the people first before his personal desires. Maria Leonor ‘Leni’ Gerona Robredo embodies these characteristics,” they said.
In Oriental Mindoro province, the Council of the Laity of Calapan also endorsed Robredo and running mate Kiko Pangilinan.
They believe that the tandem “can uplift our current situation” amidst “lies, theft, killings, corruption and distortion of history are rampant”.
The organization encouraged the lay faithful to have their own personal discernment process so they could vote wisely.
In Palawan, the Council of the Laity of the Apostolic Vicariate of Taytay also announced their support for Robredo and Pangilinan and 11 senatorial candidates.
The organization believes the candidates “reflect the values and aspirations, dreams and hopes of the people we want to serve”.
“The type of leaders we elect reflects the type of person we are,” it said.
Several lay Catholic organizations have earlier announced their support for Robredo including the Council of the Laity of the Philippines, Couples for Christ, and “Pari Madre Misyonero Para Kay Leni”.
