Philippine election: Bishop orders exposition of Blessed Sacrament in all parishes

Catholic World News - May 10, 2010

As Philippine voters go to the polls on May 10, a bishop has ordered all priests to expose the Blessed Sacrament so that the faithful may pray for a presidential election untainted by corruption.

“People were filled with fear and concern because of reports about sinister plot to effect failure of election due to some glitches in the PCOS (precinct count optical scan) machines,” said Bishop Leo Drona of San Pablo. “There is also the threat of another ‘people power’ and the fear of alleged plans by some sectors to cheat to ensure victories for their candidates.”
