Circular 2011/9

TO: THE CLERGY AND LAY FAITHFUL of the Archdiocese of Lingayen-Dagupan

RE: “SANTA MARIA MADRE DELA EUCARISTIA”

May the Lord give us His Peace!

It has been brought to my attention that certain religious images had been or are being brought around the parishes of the Archdiocese and devotions to them are being promoted among the faithful without my knowledge and approval.

Care should be taken that the persons bringing around and promoting the devotion to religious images are doing so with purity of beliefs and intentions.

Among the above mentioned images is that of “Santa Maria Madre dela Eucaristia”. After examining the tenets of those involved in the promotion of the devotion to the image, I have arrived at the conclusion that many of these are not in conformity with orthodox Catholic doctrine and therefore are harmful to the spiritual lives of the faithful.

In the future, I enjoin the parish priests to require persons bringing around and promoting devotions to religious images to first secure the permission of the Archbishop. In this way, the faithful may know that their activity is done in accordance with the teachings of the Church.

Trusting that the foregoing will serve for your guidance and reference, I remain

Sincerely yours,

+SOCRATES B. VILLEGAS, DD

Archbishop of Lingayen-Dagupan
