Circular Letter 24, Series 2007

TO: THE DIOCESAN CLERGY, THE MEN AND WOMEN RELIGIOUS

         ARCHDIOCESE OF LINGAYEN-DAGUPAN

         PANGASINAN

 

RE: DIRECTORY

        SOCIAL ACTION APOSTOLATE

        ARCHDIOCESE OF LINGAYEN-DAGUPAN

 

 

The LOVE and PEACE of CHRIST — The WAY to the LIFE in the Kingdom through the TRUTH.

The herewith attached DIRECTORY renders the Social Action Apostolate in the Archdiocese as henceforth formalized and institutionalized as below dated.

In addition to our many and continuous sacramental and other cultic ministries — which we have done for centuries — the SIGN OF THE TIMES mandates that we also engage ourselves and our lay leaders in the promotion of the SOCIAL DOCTRINE OF THE CHURCH.

The truth i that we feel comfortable and fulfilled  in leading the laity in purely devotional practices and pious acts — which constitutes a verticalist faith (”Love God”). It is about time we ALSO devote ourselves in the pursuit of justice and truth — which is admittedly inconvenient but which places the horizontalist dimension of the Christian faith (”Love neighbor”).

I BEG on bended knees: Please study well , reflect much and put the Directory into living actuality!

Very sincerely in the GOOD LORD.

(SGD) +OSCAR V. CRUZ, DD
