When I posted the photo above in my facebook account, Archbishop Socrates Villegas have very good words for Bishop Morelos:
“He (Bishop Carmelo Morelos) was a zealous and prudent bishop. His sense of humor and his practical wisdom endeared him to so many bishops, priests, nuns and laity. Having been a former CBCP President, he led the bishops with his exceptional intelligence and unique insights. We have a new saint in heaven.”
