What is touching in this visit is that it will be simple and pastoral in its very nature. Cardinal Tagle said, that the Pope wants to encounter the suffered people by the typhoon Yolanda.
Bishop Villegas also called the people to prepare for the coming of the Holy Father. People are called to pray in personal and family prayer and be charitable.
Our compassionate shepherd comes to show his deep concern for our people who have gone through devastating calamities, especially in the Visayas. He comes to confirm us in our faith as we face the challenges of witnessing to the Joy of the gospel in the midst of our trials." Bishop Villegas said.
Starting today let us pray for the success of the visit of our beloved Pope Francis.
