Archbishop of Manila (Philippines)
"It's a grace. Some of the cardinals approach me, and they told me that their parents no longer here so it's a real blessing that my parents are both healthy and my brother is here too. 06,05 And many, many relatives to witness this event.”

He was ordained a priest at the age of 24. In 1991 he received this doctorate in Theology from the Catholic University of America in Washington. Ten years later he was appointed Bishop of Imus and then in 2011, Bishop of Manila. His consistory back in November got plenty of attention, after Tagle couldn't hold back tears as he received his red biretta and ring from the Pope.
