Papal nuncio to Manila calls for 'culture of mercy'

Archbishop Giuseppe Pinto makes call at installation of Archbishop Martin Jumoad of Ozamiz

December 2, 2016
Archbishop Giuseppe Pinto, the papal Nuncio to the Philippines, has called on Filipino Catholics to promote a "culture of mercy."

"[The] culture of mercy will open our eyes to the sufferings of our brothers and sisters," said the prelate at the installation of Archbishop Martin Jumoad of Ozamiz on Nov. 30.

Archbishop Pinto said that even as the Holy Door in the Vatican closes, "the true door of mercy, which is the heart of Christ, always remains wide open."

He said St. Paul’s letters to Timothy and Titus are both considered pastoral letters as it contained instructions about the role of shepherds of the church. 

Archbishop Pinto noted St. Paul’s particular encouragement to Timothy to have patience and gentleness in carrying out his mission.

The prelate extended Pope Francis’ "love and prayers" for Archbishop Jumoad as he takes on his new mission as bishops of the Archdiocese of Ozamiz.
