Who is Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle?
Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle is a well-known and highly sought-after international speaker. Beyond his role as Archbishop of Manila, Cardinal Tagle is the President of Caritas Internationalis, a confederation of 162 Catholic relief, development and social service organisations working on behalf of the poor and oppressed in 198 countries and territories. He is the first Caritas Internationalis President to be elected from Asia and truly has a heart for the poor.
“Let us together strengthen the church of the poor so our witness can help guide us to a world of understanding justice, true freedom and peace.” – Cardinal Tagle
Cardinal Tagle was also appointed by Pope Francis as the new president of the Catholic Biblical Federation (CBF), a worldwide Catholic fellowship of administratively distinct international and local organizations committed to biblical pastoral ministry.
Ordained as bishop in 2001, Cardinal Tagle became archbishop ten years later, and was elevated to the College of Cardinals a year later in 2012. He was the seventh Filipino to be made Cardinal of the Catholic Church and when he became a cardinal he was the second youngest one.
Cardinal Tagle holds a licentiate and doctorate in Sacred Theology from The Catholic University of America, Washington, DC. He has served in a variety of ministries at the national, regional, and international level including serving as an elected member of the Council of the Synod Bishops since 2005, as a member to the Pontifical Council for the Family, for Migrants and Itinerant People, and for the Laity, and as member of the Sacred Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples.
He has also served as a member on several commissions, appointed by various Popes and more recently was named as one of the Synod Fathers for the Synod of Bishops on the New Evangelization. For his full biography, click here.
In a much-applauded keynote speech at the World Meeting of Families in the United States, Cardinal Tagle described the family as “a home for the wounded heart.”

“The wounds may come from the family, but it is also the family that becomes the source
of comfort and healing.” – Cardinal Tagle
