Cardinal Tagle to lead The Word Exposed’s Advent Recollection for 2021

Jesuit Communications (JesCom) invites the faithful to The Word Exposed’s Advent Recollection, led by Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle, on December 18, Saturday at 8 pm (Philippine Standard Time).

Streaming live via the JesCom and Radyo Katipunan 87.9 FM social media pages, the annual recollection of the Cardinal’s beloved Sunday-scripture reflection program highlights the verse “Get Up, take the Child and his Mother,” (Matthew 2:13) depicting an angel’s message to St. Joseph, tasking him to lead the Holy Family’s escape to safety in Egypt.

Though a silent figure in the Scriptures, it was the righteous St. Joseph’s complete obedience, trust, and reliance on the Lord that played an integral role in the story of the First Christmas- offering important lessons for us to follow in our own spiritual journey to Bethlehem.

In his Apostolic Letter entitled, “Patris corde” (With a Father’s Heart), Pope Francis commemorates the 150th anniversary of the declaration of the foster father of Jesus, as Patron of the Universal Church. To celebrate the occasion, Pope Francis proclaimed the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, from December 8, 2020, to December 8, 2021, as the “Year of St. Joseph”.

Commending the “ordinary people who, though far from the limelight, exercise patience and offer hope every day,” Pope Francis goes on to write how, “they resemble Saint Joseph, the man who goes unnoticed, a daily, discreet and hidden presence, who nonetheless played an incomparable role in the history of salvation.”

Since being named as Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle, has continued his world-recognized charismatic, down-to-earth and sincere brand of preaching, all the way from Rome.  

Made possible through the determined efforts of the JesCom production team and Cardinal Tagle’s steadfast commitment to media evangelization, The Word Exposed continues to air on ANC in the Philippines, ICatholicTV and Catholic Faith Network in the USA, Salt and Light in Canada, and Shalom World TV in Australia.
