Pope encourages Filipino bishops: nurture piety with sound teaching

Catholic World News - March 03, 2011

Speaking on March 3 to a group of bishops from the Philippines who were concluding their ad limina visits, Pope Benedict XVI said that the personal piety which remains strong in that country “needs to be nourished and supported by a profound understanding of and appreciation for the teachings of the Church in matters of faith and morals.”

Concentrating his remarks on the need for sound teaching in the faith, the Holy Father laid particular emphasis on “support of the family in the face of influences which would diminish or destroy its rights and integrity.” He also reminded the bishops to pay special attention to the formation and continuing pastoral support of their priests.
