Cardinal Tagle questions acts of ‘kings’ who use violence to intimidate

Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle of Manila questioned the actions of “kings who use violence” to intimidate the weak as he led Palm Sunday observances that opened Holy Week.

In his homily during early morning Mass for the blessing of palms on 25th March in Manila, the prelate poured scorn on leaders “full of cockiness and devoid of humility.”

“Today, many follow the kings who use violence, arms and intimidation but are without any understanding and oneness with the weak,” the cardinal said.

Without naming names, Cardinal Tagle urged leaders to emulate Jesus’ example of humility in leadership, ucanews.com reported.

“Our king does not rely on violence, in arms, in swords, in bullets or guns. Our king trusts in God alone,” he said.
