Philippines: Deep Devotion to Santo Niño Support to Many Faithful

A super typhoon might have destroyed the gains in terms of economy and well-being of Filipinos amid the ongoing fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, but their deep devotion to the Santo Niño, or the Child Jesus, and their tenacity to face all forms of adversities have motivated them to move forward and be more resilient against crises.

Archbishop Jose Palma of the Archdiocese of Cebu in the central Philippines urged devotees of the Santo Niño to mark its “feast” on Sunday, January 16, with prayers for recovery from the pandemic and from the devastation brought about by super typhoon “Odette (Rai)” last month.

“Let us continue to support one another on our road to recovery from typhoon ‘Odette’ and COVID-19, in God’s grace,” said the prelate in a radio interview on January 12.
