Cardinal Tagle receives a warm welcome in Amman

Amman-en.abouna.org

President of Caritas Internationalis Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle of Manila, Philippines arrived in Amman on Friday, July 14.

Upon arrival he was warmly received by Caritas Jordan Director Wael Suleiman and several Caritas members of staff.

Cardinal Tagle was elected as the new president of Caritas Internationalis at the confederation’s 20th General Assembly in Rome. He is the first Caritas Internationalis president to be elected from Asia.

He was ordained to the priesthood at the age of 24 and was appointed pastor at St Augustine parish in Mendez, Cavite, where he stayed for three years. He taught theology at three different seminaries, one in Cavite and two in Metro Manila.

In 1997 Blessed Pope John Paul II appointed Fr Tagle as a member of the International Theological Commission, where he became a close collaborator of Pope Benedict XVI, who was president at the time. Assisting the Holy See and the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Tagle played a key role in examining and addressing doctrinal questions. Fr Tagle developed ties with the progressive theological School of Bologna, contributing to the school’s controversial history of the Second Vatican Council project, which interprets Vatican II as a “new beginning” for the Church.
