A Roman Catholic bishop was robbed at gunpoint in the Philippines, but instead of going to police, he prayed for the thief.

Archbishop Jesus Dosado says he was walking toward a cathedral for prayer when a man on a motorbike stopped ahead of him, pretended to check the vehicle and suddenly pulled a gun.

Dosado says he didn't resist and gave the robber his cell phone and wallet that included his driver's license and $74.

But instead of informing police, Dosado says he decided to continue to the cathedral and pray for the assailant's salvation.
