THE ASSOCIATION of Major Religious Superiors in the Philippines (AMRSP) urged the faithful to show solidarity with the “poor” who are bearing the impact of the “enhanced community quarantine” amid the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) outbreak.

“The informal settlers, daily-wage earners, marginalized, homeless, sweet dwellers, jeepney, bus and tricycle drivers, garbage collectors and many others  [a]re not far away from us. They live near our convents. Our gift to them is our prophetic witnessing – presence,” AMRSP said in a statement.

AMRSP also reminded the religious to continue to be a “sign of God’s presence of hope and love” through prayer for the frontliners amid the growing number of cases of Covid-19.

“Let us pray that our government leaders, national and local, may find a way to contain the rapid spread of the virus and that our population as one Filipino people may cooperate with the doctors, health workers, and military on the ground,” they said.

Founded in 1972, AMRSP is a religious organization that aims to “coordinate the diverse charisms of the congregations for collective witnessing and prophetic action for the building up of the Body of Christ.”

Last March 16, President Duterte placed the entire Luzon under “enhanced community quarantine” to stem the spread of Covid-19.

As of this writing, there are a total of 307 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the Philippines.
