Catholic Church Mourns Death of Two Filipino Priests

My Pope asks everyone to pray for the eternal repose of the souls of Fr. Larry Faraon and Fr. Chito Suganob.

The Philippine Catholic Church is in mourning as two Catholic priests died this week—Radio Veritas anchor Fr. Larry Faraon and Marawi siege survivor Fr. Chito Suganob. 

On Sunday, July 26, Catholic media icon Fr. Laureano “Larry” Faraon succumbed to pneumonia at around 3:06 am at a hospital in Quezon City, according to a Facebook post of Radio Veritas. It was 22 days after his birthday. He was 64. (Read: 4 Spiritual Prayers for Mourners of the Dead)

Fr. Larry was ordained as a Dominican priest in 1983 and served the Dominican Order. He was a program manager of Radio Veritas at the time of the 1986 EDSA people power revolt. He hosted the Sunday radio program “Healing Touch” until his death.

He was last heard in the Catholic radio station on June 15 when he officiated Mass live on-air and online.

Just a few days before Fr. Larry’s passing, a Filipino priest has passed away in Noralah, South Cotabato. on Wednesday, July 22, Fr. Teresito “Chito” Suganob—who miraculously survived the Marawi siege as a captive of the Maute Group terrorists in 2017—has died of cardiac arrest at age 59.

In a statement, Marawi Bishop Edwin dela Peña said that Fr. Chito died in his home in South Cotabato while he was asleep due to cardiac arrest.

“The doctor estimated his death between 5 am and 6 am. Please include him in your prayers,” De la Peña said. He added that funeral arrangements will be announced as soon as it becomes available.

Fr. Chito was abducted along with other Christians on May 23, 2017, as Islamic militants rampaged through the city of Marawi in a well-planned attack. He and other civilian hostages were rescued after they escaped from the extremists on Sept. 26, 2017.

My Pope asks everyone to pray for the eternal repose of the souls of Fr. Larry and Fr. Chito. (Read: A Look Into the Brotherly Love of Joseph & Georg Ratzinger)
