CBCP calls for BI to review order to deport Aussie nun

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) recently called on the Bureau of Immigration (BI) to think over their decision to deport Australian nun Patricia Fox.

CBCP President Archbishop Romulo Valles said that they appeal to make a reconsideration because he sees the genuine work and intentions of the nun.

In this recent development, we sincerely make an appeal that the authorities may make a reconsideration of their order for Sr. Patricia Fox to leave the country,” he said.

Without entering into the merits of both parties in the case, this is for the proper authorities to decide. But this we say: We believe in the sincerity and dedication of Sr. Patricia to serve our people. We believe further that she is moved to serve our people by the love of Christ. ‘The love of Christ urges us,’” he added.

He also calls on to listen to the side of Fox as she has done good things to the marginalized in the country.

With a hope for a reconsideration regarding the BI’s order after giving Sr. Patricia a chance to explain herself again, in a spirit of dialogue, could she be given a chance to stay and continue serving our people? We continue to pray for the Lord’s enlightenment for all those who are involved in this case, but in particular, we continue to pray for Sr. Patricia Fox – for her health and well-being,”  he said.

The CBCP recently said that they are ready to provide any assistance to Fox.

  1. The Bible say, obey governing authorities as they are instituted by God. When will you learn to follow? Christ did not resist to the Roman Government. Christianity is to be Christlike, and you religious are doing otherwise. you are not above the law of this land! Do your job and send the message of God and not to meddle on government affairs! Stop your hypocrisy.
