MANILA Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle has declared May 20 to 31 as days of prayer, fasting and action “for the truth and common good.”

Tagle sent a letter to all of Manila’s parishes where he lamented that the country needed a “renewed outpouring of the Holy Spirit,” according to CBCP News, the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines’ news service.

During this period, Tagle urged parishes, convents and schools to organize “feasts of truth and love,” which include charities as well as forums on the Constitution, Charter change, and federalism.

Tagle also ordered the ringing of church bells at 3 p.m. to commemorate Jesus Christ’s death and the praying of the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy in parish churches, chapels, convents, schools, homes, and offices.

“We accompany our prayer with fasting,” Tagle said. “Through fasting we redirect our focus from ourselves and our groups to the community.”
