Special thanks to Light of Jesus Family for allowing OBS to film at the event!

Jason Evert returns and muses with OBS-Philippines on the nature of suffering in our lives. Are we merely the sum of our brokenness? Or is there value to our life because of these sufferings?

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
