Devotions: Immaculate Heart of Mary

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!
