We laud the gallantry of our soldiers
Once more, CBCP is the hapless victim of fake news. Going viral on social media is a “report” that the CBCP regrets the killing of Messrs. Hapilon and Maute.
The CBCP never made such a statement.
On the contrary we laud the gallantry of our soldiers and their heroic efforts to free Marawi. We will gladly join government in rebuilding the city in the measure we are able.
We pray for all the dead, and for lasting peace in Mindanao.
