Manila archdiocese asks Facebook:close down fake Tagle account asking for money

Papal Visit fake account RCAM
Beware: This is a bogus  FB account  using the name of Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle and asking donations through this letter which bears the wrong address and wrong signature of the Cardinal. The Archdiocese of Manila calls on Face Book to close this account. It victimizes foreign Filipinos a number of whom in Switzerland responded to the appeal and made donations.
Papal Visit fake letter RCAMWe advise the people to make sure that the letters of solicitation they respond to, especially those purportedly signed by Cardinal Tagle and other officials of the Church, come from official sources. 
The official FB page of Cardinal Tagle which is managed by Jesuit Communications does not post appeals of this sort. Donations for the poor can be coursed through Caritas Manila, the social services arm of the Archdiocese of Manila.

Vatican’s new ‘media czar’ no stranger to Asians

Lord Chris Patten, Britain’s last Governor of Hong Kong before the European state handed over its colony to the Chinese in 1997, has been appointed to head the mixed committee of Vatican staff and international experts created to propose reforms over the year in Vatican’s media operations.

Edward Pentin in his blog for National Catholic Register called Patten the Vatican’s new “media czar.”

He cited Patten’s as “one of the most interesting appointments” in Australian Cardinal George Pell’s July 9 announcement of developments in Pope Francis’ efforts to reform the Roman Curia. The pope has appointed the Australian cardinal prefect of the Secretariat for the Economy, which is auditing and supervising offices of the Roman Curia, the Vatican City State and institutions connected to the Holy See. 

Hong Kong is both part of China and outside of it as defined in the 1984 Joint Declaration, the treaty under which Britain handed over its former colony. Seventeen years after the hand over, the struggle for power and control continues between the Special Administrative Region and the Beijing government.
