Most Rev. Broderick S. Pabillo, DD, Auxiliary Bishop of Manila was the featured speaker during the second installment of the “Church of the Poor in PCP II” lecture series, which was held on June 17, 2015 at the CFA Lagerwey Hall.

Bishop Pabillo presented statistics on the poor in the country who compromise 70% of the Philippines’ population and are found mostly in Samar and Mindanao.

He said that when a person is economically poor, everything else follows: an individual becomes “food” poor—he has nothing to buy food and becomes “health” poor; then, he is also “spiritually” poor because he is unable to attend Mass regularly since he and his family live far away and cannot afford to take public transportation to church.

He also discussed how Jesus Christ treated the poor two millenniums ago, how He listened and spoke to them, and how he worked and cared for them.

The Bishop also emphasized that, as a follower of Christ, one should also have a preferential love for the poor, because it is the kind of love Jesus has for the poor.
