The Archdiocese of Manila, in a statement released last night, confirmed that Cardinal Jose F. Advincula, Archbishop of Manila, tested positive for COVID-19. He is now on quarantine observing strict protocols.

We extend our prayers of fast recovery, complete healing, and good health to Cardinal Advincula. We assure him of our closeness with him with our love, support and prayers.

I also ask my brother bishops to please include in all our daily Mass intentions the full recovery of our dear Cardinal.

We also entreat the faithful to pray for the good Cardinal so that he can resume his important ministry in the Archdiocese of Manila and the universal Church.

We bring all our prayer to the Lord and to our Blessed Mother for an end to this pandemic, for all those who are sick and those who care for them.
