October 30, 2013 (HLI) – Over 3,000 rosary-bearing Catholics joined the Human Life International-sponsored Archdiocesan Penitential Walk with Mary for Faith & Life in the Philippines last Saturday, October 26, 2013. The three kilometer walk started outside of the Department of Health Regional office and went to the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño.
The main purposes of that Marian event were fourfold: First, as a culminating activity to end the Rosary Month of October. Second, to give thanks to God for sparing Cebu from massive destruction after the 7.2-magnitude earthquake. Third, praying in solidarity for the victims of the earthquake in the neighbor island of Bohol. And fourth, to ask the Lord with Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary to spare the Philippines from the anti-life RH Law, which is now in the hands of the Supreme Court, and other anti-life bills which are awaiting approval later this year in the House of the Representatives.
Please continue to pray for the Philippines!
