Filipino Catholics have always been characterized as “Pueblo Amante de Maria” – a people in love with Mary. In this installment of the global “Devotions” series we take a look at how close the Devotion to Mary is in relation to the history and culture of the Filipino people. The faith that radiates from the 7,107 islands of faith is very inspiring for other cultures around the world. We wonder, ‘where does the faith come from, who invokes the joy in these Filipino people?’ Certainly, their devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary plays a key role in their faith, that sends forth many souls toward her son, Jesus Christ. “Mama Mary”, pray for us!

Every year in October, hundreds of thousands of devotees from all across Lima and Peru participate in a religious procession honoring Jesus Christ through the image known in Spanish as, “El Señor de los Milagros”. Boulevards are decorated in purple for the entire month of October to celebrate the Lord of Miracles. The procession is the highlight of the devotion and outpouring of faith, which you are able to witness in the video above.

The image of “El Señor de los Milagros” shows Jesus Christ enduring the pain of crucifixion. Above the cross is the Holy Spirit and God the Father. Below and to the left of Jesus is his mother, the Virgin Mary, with her heart pierced by a sword of sorrow. Kneeling and weeping at the foot of the cross is Mary Magdalene.

Have you been to the procession of “El Señor de los Milagros”? Share your experience below in the comment section.

Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines in early November 2013. It was one of the strongest typhoons (cyclones) ever recorded. Tacloban was one of the hardest hit areas. In this video, you hear from Br. James Romero Santos a first hand account of the devastating destruction caused by this storm. The trial this massive typhoon brought to the people of the Philippines is still being dealt with today. For those who lost loved ones, it is the God who suffers with them that brings hope for a better future.

Pope Francis

When Pope Francis visits the Philippines this January 15-19, 2015, it will be a tremendous blessing to a nation whose covenant with God has been tested in recent years due to natural disasters, like Typhoon Haiyan.

The spotlight will not be on Pope Francis, but on the towns and villages devastated by “Haiyan,” the strongest typhoon on record in the Philippines. The typhoon’s destructive path displaced four million people and destroyed over one million homes. Videos of loved ones who lost family members, sharing their stories, and hoping for mercy and compassion from the global community will be featured here on this website, leading up to the Papal visit in the Philippines, this January 2015.

‘We were having trouble conceiving after we were married in 2012. We were both very open to life, an we wanted a child to care for and love. The doctors did not have good answers for us. So our family turned to prayer for help. Thanks to a friend on facebook, David Panlilio, I found out about his devotion to Saint Padre Pio. Eventually, we started a novena to Padre Pio, praying fervently for his intercession, and that is when we saw a positive pregnancy test. The rest is history, as we now have a baby boy, who carries the name of Pio! And of course, his Godfather is David!’
