I have to say that I am overwhelmed with joy for what is going on in our beloved country, the Phillipines. After learning about the plan for Monte Maria, a shrine for our Blessed Virgin Mother, now comes TV Maria- a national television network of the Catholic Church in the Philippines. Our country is truly a Marian country. Despite of the difficulty that our country is going through it is comforting to know that the Church is alive. She is always there to bring us hope during these time of turmoil. Ave Maria!
