Circular on the APOSTOLIC ADMINISTRATOR OF THE ARCHDIOCESE OF MANILA


Circular 2020 – 10
10 February 2020

 
TO: ALL THE CLERGY, RELIGIOUS MEN AND WOMEN, AND LAY FAITHFUL IN THE ARCHDIOCESE OF MANILA 

RE: APOSTOLIC ADMINISTRATOR OF THE ARCHDIOCESE OF MANILA



Dear Brother-Priests, Brothers, and Sisters in the Lord,

Now that His Eminence Cardinal Luis Antonio G. Tagle, Archbishop-Emeritus of Manila, has left for Rome to assume his new assignment as Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, the See of Manila has been rendered vacant (sede vacante).

As a sign of his paternal solicitude, the Holy Father Pope Francis announced today, February 10, 2020, the appointment of His Excellency Most Reverend Broderick S. Pabillo, Auxiliary Bishop of Manila, as Apostolic Administrator of the Archdiocese of Manila until a new Archbishop is installed.

Following this announcement, please take note of the following:

1. In all Masses in the Archdiocese of Manila we will no longer mention the name of Cardinal Tagle in the Eucharistic Prayer but the name of Bishop Pabillo as administrator. Hence we will say: Remember, Lord, your Church spread throughout the world, and bring her to the fullness of charity, together with Francis, our Pope, and Broderick our Administrator, and all the clergy (Eucharistic Prayer II). In Tagalog: si Broderick na aming tagapangasiwa.

2. The “Prayer for a New Archbishop” is to be prayed in our Masses, after the Post-Communion Prayer. Attached is a copy of the prayer in English and Tagalog.

3. The Oratio Imperata for the 2019 Novel Coronavirus may be prayed before the Mass.

Let us thank the Lord for Cardinal Chito who served as Archbishop of Manila for 8 years. Let us pray for him as he embarks on his new mission. Let us also thank the Lord for Bishop Broderick who will guide us during this period in our life as a local Church. And let us beg the Lord to give us a new shepherd molded after His own heart.

Thank you very much.

 

Sincerely yours in the Lord,


(Signed)
FR. REGINALD R. MALICDEM
Chancellor


 

PRAYER FOR A NEW ARCHBISHOP

Heavenly Father, 
you have blessed our Archdiocese time and again 
with good, holy, learned, and wise shepherds 
who have led us ever closer to you.  
Aware of your profound love for us, 
we ask you to bless us once again.  
Send us a good, holy, learned, and wise man 
to become our next archbishop.  
Inspire us, the clergy, religious, and laity
to work generously with him 
so that we might grow together in your love 
and continue the good work you have begun in us 
for the sake of all people.  
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, 
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.
Amen.
