Filipinos just love being Catholic!
Pope Francis is on record as saying that "The Philippines bear witness to the youthfulness and vitality of the Church."
How true! The Philippines is one of those nations where Catholicism is thriving because of an unconditional love and complete trust in the Catholic faith.
Unliek our own western and increasingly secular culture, the Filipinos rarely question their faith. They are less inclined to be negative about the Church. Quite the opposite! They love it! They adore it! They cherish it and value it! And best of all, they stand up for it!
And why wouldn't they? It is Christ's Church after all!
They are also not afraid to hand it down, word for word, to their children.
A real example of faith and love for Christ.
