Bishop of Bacolod condemns murder at church

Manila (UCAN): Bishop Patricio Buzon of Bacolod, called the murder of 54-year-old Filipino-Chinese businessman, Alex Yao, by gunmen inside the compound of the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Shrine in Bacolod City, the Philippines, on February 19, a “deplorable act ... that has no place in Christian communities, more so in a society that upholds the principles of law and order.”
Yao’s wife, Maria Theresa, survived the shooting, which occurred while the couple were leaving the church after attending a prayer meeting.
