2nd Night: Pasig Diocese Clergy holds 8pm Mass for BFSD
Vicar General Orly Cantillon likened Bishop Francisco’s life to the public life of Jesus and his passion.
In the Holy Mass which he celebrated last Aug. 27, 2015, he described the active ministry of the bishop in Apostolic Vicariate of Palawan and Dioceses of San Pablo and Pasig. The passion of Jesus is present in the bishop’s last days.
On August 21, on the occasion of the 12th anniversary of the Diocese of Pasig, he surprised everyone by concelebrating in the thanksgiving mass even though he was suffering.
“Nais kong magpasalamat sa suporta at pagtulong ninyo sa akin. Ipagpatuloy natin ang ating sinimulan (para sa ating Diyosesis),” said the bishop. It was the last public mass that he concelebrated in the diocese.
Msgr. Manny Gabriel, past parish priest of the Immaculate Conception Cathedral also took part in the blessing of the remains together with the priests of the Diocese of Pasig.
