Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) Episcopal Commission on the Laity chair Bishop Broderick Pabillo said that he understands that many are affected by what is believed to be the strongest typho0n this year, but it is important to extend help to those who are needing it the most.

“Alam po natin na tayo po ay dinadalaw ng isang napakalakas na bagyo kaya humihingi po kami ng tulong sa inyo na matulungan natin ang mga kapatid natin na nasalanta,” Pabillo said.

The laity explained that he understands that the situation is extra challenging because of the pandemic. “Alam ko pong mahirap humingi ng tulong ngayon kasi lahat naman tayo ay tinamaan po ng COVID-19 pero ngayon ay may mga kapatid din tayo na mas lalong nahihirapan. Kaya kung nasaan po tayo, tumulong po tayo sa kanila,” he added.

Pabillo also reminded the faithful to pray for everyone’s safety.

Meanwhile, Boac Bishop Marcelino Maralit Jr. called on netizens to use social media responsibly by sharing relevant information about super typho0n Rolly. “Try your best to provide true, timely, and useful information to our people,” Maralit reminded the public.

He also told those in most affected areas to obey authorities when they are asked to evacuate. “Always remember that your life is much more important than anything you may own,” he added.

As of 5 p.m. of Nov. 1, no more area in the country is placed under Signal No. 4 as super typho0n Rolly continues to weaken.
