This article examines the pronouncements of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), especially as regards current political issues in Filipino society. While the institutional church has not been remiss in the call for social change, particularly in exhorting people to actively participate in process of governance, the paper argues for the urgent need of “evangelizing politics”through “principled partisan politics,” whereby the laity particularly can involve in ideological political parties that can assist in bringing about authentic change in the nation’s political culture and system.
