Cardinal Orlando Quevedo of Cotabato has condemned as "terrorism" a bomb explosion outside a Catholic church in the town of Esperanza in the southern Philippines.
The prelate said the Nov. 27 bombing was "made worse because of the sacredness of the place, the sacredness of the day, and the sacredness of the event that had just taken place."
The explosion happened as people were leaving the church after attending a morning Mass to mark the first Sunday of Advent.
