Had to see a few people right before the departure! Blessed to see them! Thank to everyone for your well wishes as I take off on this extraordinary adventure!
Right above our Blessed Lord is the image of our Blessed Mother under the title of Guadalupe who has become the patroness of the Philippines in many respects. To her, I trust my safe travels to the motherland. Not only a vacation, but very much a pilgrimage…. to immerse myself in the joy and religiosity of the Filipino people and to notice perhaps something very different, yet profoundly familiar. Here is to safe travels! See you in the Philippines!!
