33RD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME:
To the readers of this blog around the world,
My people in the Philippines are in great pain and suffering. Having been hit by the super-typhoon Haiyan which is considered the strongest typhoon ever recorded in world history, the devastation is so massive that affected more than 9 million people.
We thank the United Nations and the other countries for their very generous response by sending aid to the typhoon victims. Left alone, the Philippine government is unable to cope with the need of its people of such magnitude. We also thank the Philippine government and its agencies for not abandoning us. Thank you to the nameless organizations and individual heroes who are making a difference in this time of need.
We appreciate your prayers and sympathy but they are not enough for my people to survive and rebuild their lives. Every little help you can give means life for my people.
If you are looking for an opportunity to help, please ask your local church how you can send your donations.
On behalf of the Filipino people, thank you very much!
Fr. Vlad, SOLT
