PNP to Bless The Entire Philippines After MMDA’s Blessing of EDSA

MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine National Police (PNP) announced today their plans to have the whole Metro Manila blessed to combat the increased crime rate in the cities.

This after the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) sought divine intervention for the enlightenment and  guidance of drivers to prevent any more accidents from happening along the Epifanio Delos Santos Avenue (EDSA) by having Guadalupe Church parish priest Fr. Roderick Castro sprinkle holy water along the avenue.

“If this proves to be effective, we might do this for the whole country,” said PNP Chief Nicanor Bartolome. “We’ll start with the cities first, where crimes are at the highest, and then move on from there if it shows promise.”

The PNP would invite Manila Archbishop Luís Antonio Tagle to lead the rites and would see the religious leader board either a helicopter or a crop duster to spread holy water across the cities.

“Having His Most Reverend Excellency lead the blessings would make the ritual super effective,” said Bartolome.

Bartolome noted that the Philippines has not been blessed even once. “We are a predominantly Catholic country, but our whole country has never been blessed?!” said the PNP Chief sarcastically.

“With this, we hope and pray, seeking the help of the Lord, to lessen crimes like murder, rape, robberies and others which happen in the country,” said Archbishop Tagle when asked for a comment.
