“I am blessed to personally witness this historic event,” he said in a Facebook post.

“After 35 years (1984-2019), the Holy See visits Thailand, a country with a minority of Christians and the greater majority of Buddhists. Indeed, he is ‘pontifex’, which means bridge builder who shows that our dialogue of life, whatever religious affiliation, enriches our being human and becoming divine,” added Vergara.

Another Filipino prelate, Nueva Ecija Bishop Roberto Mallari is also in Thailand as he is part of the Federation of Asian Bishops’ Conference. The FABC is set to meet with the pontiff.

In an interview with Church-run Radyo Veritas, the prelate urged overseas Filipino workers there to sieze the opportunity to see the pontiff.

“Dont waste this opportunity,” said Mallari.

“This is a grace so let us take part,” he added.

Pope Francis arrived in Thailand, Wednesday, November 20, his 32nd Apostolic journey.

He will be in Thailand until November 23 and then he will go to Japan for an apostolic visit.
