CWN Editor's Note: “We are in a state of rebellion against God, and we are seeing the consequences of our sin,” said Archbishop Socrates Villegas, as he declared 21 days of prayer for national healing (a reference to “the 21 rebellious acts of the Israelites after the liberation from Egypt”). “We must repent. We must be consecrated again if we wish to be healed.”
