President Rodrigo Duterte’s found a supporter from the Catholic Church in former Manila Archbishop Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales, who said the tough-talking leader is on the right track.
Rosales also chided Duterte’s critics for always seeing his bad side, saying no one has a monopoly on goodness.
“Kita naman natin he is (on the) right track, the leadership really is (on the) right track. Kaya kung minsan napupuna natin yung paraan and you know na decisiveness of the new government is something you have never seen in many decades,” he said on Church-run Radyo Veritas Bagong administrasyon, kailangang ipagdasal sa matuwid na landas.
He particularly lauded Duterte’s bold decisions on several issues.
On the other hand, he said people should pray for Duterte so that he would avoid making mistakes.
“Ito na siguro kung minsan, iniisip natin na tayo lamang ang magaling. No way, hindi tama yan,” he said.
“(F)or me I pray for everyone especially the highest leadership. We dont own goodness, not even God would limit goodness to only this one shape, it has many shapes. We pray to lessen the faults and to conitnue the works to correct,” Rosales said.
