Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle has now recovered from the coronavirus disease 2019.
According to CBCP News, the Pontificio Collegio Filippino in Rome confirmed the news Wednesday, September 23.
“God wants him to continue serving in the Vatican’s office for the Missions, to bring God’s Good News of love, joy, peace, justice, forgiveness and reconciliation — all of which the world needs in a special way these days,” PCF Rector Fr. Gregory Gaston said.
100% Katolikong Pinoy, a Filipino Catholic Internet Ministry, also posted the good news on social media.
“Cardinal Tagle is now COVID-free,” it said.
This prompted a lot of netizens to react:
“Thanks God he's safe.”
“Thank you Lord , Thank you Jesus . God is good all the time, all the time GOD is Good. Amen.”
“Praise & thank You, Lord. You are our mightiest Healer!”
“Thank you God. He is really good. Our God loves us.”
It can be recalled that recently, Vatican News and CBCP confirmed that the Filipino cardinal tested positive for COVID-19 upon arrival in Manila from Italy.
He tested negative on September 7 in Rome but became positive when he arrived in the Philippines.
The Director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni, said that the Cardinal did not show symptoms.
The COVID-19 outbreak started out in Wuhan, Hubei Province of China. Scientists believed that the virus came from an animal at one of Wuhan's wet markets. The Philippines has slowly eased quarantine measures and Filipinos are starting to adapt to the new normal.
Michael V., who earlier got tested positive from COVID-19 himself, aired his faith that the country can beat the current pandemic.
