OFFICIAL STATEMENT OF THE ARCHDIOCESE OF DAVAO
on the President-Elect Rodrigo Roa Duterte
“The Archdiocese of Davao respects and listens with humility to the views and statements of our Incoming President Rodrigo Roa Duterte about the Church, including those that may be difficult to accept and things that may be contrary to our teachings.
Even during the pre-election period, we have always maintained a peaceful relationship with him and our doors are always open to him.
We are one with the people of Davao in acknowledging all the good things that he has done especially to the poor and the marginalized.
We join him in prayer asking for divine wisdom and enlightenment as he begins his journey as the new leader of this land.”
Msgr Paul A. Cuison, JCD
