Rome, (Zenit.org) Rocio Lancho Garcia. The Philippines lived the preparation for the Holy Father’s visit “with much anticipation, enthusiasm and hope.” The people welcomed this event wholeheartedly and it awakened in everyone collaboration, dedication, creativity and the commitment they have assumed as a common task: “to receive the Holy Father and his message, and to make his visit to our country something very significant for the Philippine people.” These were the words said by Maria Bema Solis, Daughter of Jesus, local Superior of the Juniorate to ZENIT.
