August 26 2011 is Day of Penance - Archdiocese of Manila

August 26, 2011 will be a "Day of Penance", as declared by the Archdiocese of Manila dated August 16, 2011. This is in response to the "blasphemous" art exhibit presented in the "Kulo" art exhibit in the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) weeks ago.

According to reports, Archbishop Gaudencio Rosales of Manila said that they are encouraging Catholics to sacrifice on that day in penitence to the sins to Jesus Christ brought about by the malicious exhibit.

Quoted from his statements,

"For us Catholics and Christians, the offense goes beyond visual senses; it strikes into our souls"

As part of the "Day of Penance", Catholics are requested to sacrifice just for a day like fasting and praying in forgiveness of the sacrilegious acts made previously in the image of Christ.

Meanwhile, Mideo Cruz already apologized to the public regarding the religious scandal brought about by his Polytheism art.
