CBCP replaces 'Oratio Imperata' with 'Litany of Gratitude'

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has replaced the "Oratio Imperata Against Covid-19" with the “Litany of Gratitude after the Covid Pandemic.

This, as the coronavirus eases and the country slowly recovers from the almost three-year health emergency.

On Thursday, CBCP Secretary General Monsignor Bernardo Pantin announced that the “Litany of Gratitude after the Covid Pandemic” was approved during the prelates' group 125th Plenary Assembly on January 30.

This replaced the "Oratio Imperata Against Covid-19," an obligatory prayer issued during the height of the coronavirus crisis.

The “Litany of Gratitude after the Covid Pandemic,” will be recited by the faithful guided by Catholic priests from February 11 to February 22 (Ash Wednesday) and in all weekday and Sunday Masses.

Currently, the faithful are back to attending in-person masses while observing health protocols.

This despite the easing of many Covid-19 restrictions and even as the World Health Organization maintained its highest form of alert against Covid-19, declaring it as still a public health emergency of international concern.
