MANILA, April 24, 2016 – As the country counts the days before Filipinos head for the polls, the faithful commit to pray the rosary daily for the special intention of the elections, as encouraged by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP).
“I pray the rosary but only the mystery of today. However given the current situation of the country, we could try following the exhortation of the [archbishop]. After all, it was our Mother Mary who always gave historical breakthroughs for us like in EDSA I,” said youth motivational speaker John Bernard Caasi.
Attesting to the effectiveness of the rosary, youth leader Edwin Valles considers it a “singular grace and privilege” to pray the rosary daily for the intention of the May elections.
