Beautiful story...I know Fr. Mariusz from the Divine Mercy Shrine. Today he just celebrated Mass in Tagalog! Good luck to the spread of the Divine Mercy devotion in the Philippines and may you successfully be ordained a priest after some years. Keep the faith, the Marians may be few here but you are doing great work!

Br Thad-The picture above depicts the typical Filipino poverty and at the same time joy. Keep those innocent children away from television. Thank you for spending your time in my country. May God bless you and may you remain pure.

Br. Thad, through Fr. Joe Roesch, MIC, I learned about the mission in Cagayan de Oro. I also became a Facebook friend of a local priest there. Now reading your experience makes me want to see the mission on my next rip to PI. I was truly touched.

Very good write-up. Its encouraging. Through the corporal works of Mercy you are encountering in Phillipine. I pray that Merciful Jesus graces you with your heart's desire Bro. Stay blessed with mother Mary and the Jesus who are Merciful.
