MANILA, Philippines – The crucified Christ was the central figure during the Good Friday service led by Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle at the Manila Cathedral on March 30.
During the ceremony, formally known as the Celebration of the Lord's Passion, Tagle asked Catholics to consider a crucial question being put before them as in the time of Jesus: condemn Christ to death in favor of other kings, or save him?
Such a question, he said, is relevant to many decisions people are made to face in their daily lives even now. (READ: TRANSCRIPT: Cardinal Tagle's homily on Good Friday 2018)
