Who is Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle?
Cardinal Tagle is a well-known and highly sought-after international speaker.
He was first ordained Bishop of Imus in the Philippines in 2001, and became Archbishop of Manila in 2011. In 2012, he was elevated to the College of Cardinals and was the second youngest to be made Cardinal.
Beyond his role as Archbishop of Manila, he is also the President of Caritas Internationalis, a confederation of over 160 Catholic relief, development and social service organisations working in almost every country of the world. 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
He earned his doctorate in Sacred Theology from the Catholic University of America, Washington, DC and has served in a variety of ministries at the national, regional, and international level. Cardinal Tagle is a member of the Congregation for Catholic Education, Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, Pontifical Council for the Family, Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant People, Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life, Pontifical Council for the Laity, and XIII Ordinary Council of the Secretariat General of the Synod of Bishops. He is also professor of dogmatic synthesis at the Graduate School of Theology of San Carlos Seminary.
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.
He has a weekly television show called The Word Exposed where he reflects on Sunday’s Mass readings each week. With over 500,000 followers on Facebook and about 30,000 followers on Twitter, he has grown in popularity over the years. 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
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. It is one of the largest NGO networks in the world.
Inspired by our Catholic faith, Caritas Internationalis is the helping hand of the Church – reaching out to the poor, vulnerable and excluded, regardless of race or religion, to build a world based on justice and fraternal love. When a crisis hits, Caritas is already on the ground.
At our upcoming event, there will be an opportunity to support one of Pope Francis’ Charities – Caritas Internationalis, an organization that is close to the heart of Cardinal Tagle. Or, you can donate online today!
