Statue of Jesus Offers Hope by Surviving Typhoon in Philippines Unscathed

Nearly everything around it, and in its region, was destroyed by the monster typhoon, but a large statue of Jesus on Calvary Hill overlooking the town remains. It is said to be a symbol of hope for the people around it. Most people in the Philippines are Catholics.


I’ll offer a prayer for the people.

:gopray:Hail Mary, Full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blest is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
