His Eminence Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, Archbishop of Manila, during a Mass to open a concert to “celebrate family through Music”, conveyed that the heart that experiences love will love and when it loves, it enters into a covenant. “A Love to Last: Families are forever’ concert was organized by Commission on Family and Life of the Archdiocese of Manila and was attended by the members of the various Catholic communities and organizations.
As reported by en.radiovaticana.va, His Lordship Cardinal Tagle remarked that “You don’t need to mandate love, you don’t need to teach that. ‘step 1, step 2..’, because a person has a covenant with someone, he will fulfill all the commandments even if no one tells him to.” Further, His Eminence added, “‘You are mine and I am yours’ and when the covenant becomes life, because you are mine, you are no different from me and because I am no different from you and because in my heart you are always there and I am in your heart, I will not cheat your. I will not betray you…I will not kill you.”
The concert was attended by various Catholic communities and organizations like Familia, Couples for Christ, Light of Jesus, Marriage Encounter Foundation of the Philippines, Brotherhood of Christian Businessman and Professionals and Ligaya ng Panginoon (CBCP).
