Luis Antonio Gokim Tagle (Tagalog: [lʊˈwis ɐnˈtonɪo 'taɡlɛ]; born June 21, 1957) is a Filipino cardinal of the Catholic Church, and prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples since December 2019. Prior to the appointment, he served as Archbishop of Manila from 2011 to 2020. Tagle also serves as the president of Caritas International, a federation of Catholic relief, development, and social service organizations, and of the Catholic Biblical Federation. He generally prefers to be called by his nickname, "Chito", rather than by his clerical title. Tagle is involved in many social issues in the Philippines, with emphasis on helping the poor while defending the Catholic Church's opposition to abortion, contraception (equated with abortion in the Philippines), and what he has called "practical atheism". Dubbed as the "Asian Francis", he is often seen as a representative of the Church's progressive wing. Tagle has criticized the Church for using "harsh words" to describe LGBT as well as divorced and remarried Catholics, whom he believes should be allowed to receive Holy Communion on a case-by-case basis.
