MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Let’s give it to the Catholic Church in the Philippines. It is being very proactive against the spread of coronavirus in the country.
Today, the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) announced that it has ordered the temporary closure of all churches across the country as a way to curb the possible spread of coronavirus.
Earlier, the CBCP advised Catholics to refrain from kissing the ring of their bishops, holding hands during the recitation of “The Lord’s Prayer” and shakng people’s hands or kissing and hugging them during the the “Peace be with you” portion of the Holy Mass. But it feels these measures were not enough.
”It was a difficult decision for the bishops to order the closure of all churches, realizing the virus could easily be spread in crowded environments like the Sunday masses,” a CBCP spokesperson said.
”We’ll just find other ways to raise funds that would be lost from our Sunday collection baskets,” the spokesperson said.

She then brought out mineral water from Maynilad and Manila Water, and gave each person one cup to drink.
Behold, a miracle did not happen for there was no fish.
But the news media took her photos just the same and her visit to Taal became today’s headlines to tell the whole world that Leni made a miracle when there was none.
THE VATICAN (The Adobo Chronicles, Rome Bureau) – Pope Francis has already publicly apologized for violating a woman at The Vatican a couple of days ago. The incident where the Pope slapped the hand of a woman pilgrim after she grabbed his hand was caught on video and has gone super viral.
But Vatican officials are not stopping at the public apology. They are now searching for the still unidentified woman and would like to bring her back to have a private audience with the Pope.
It wasn’t clear whether Vatican officials would like the woman to receive a personal apology from the Pope or initiate an excommunication process for her.
Regardless, news media organizations around the world are also reportedly looking for the woman and are offering One Million U.S. dollars for an exclusive interview with her.
