Boholanos Turn To Prayers

While protest marchers in an Interfaith Prayers Rally filled Manila streets last Friday evening, Boholanos also displayed their own Prayer Power that same day.

They jammed the Our Lady of Assumption Church in Dauis town for the last day of the Bohol visit of the miraculous relics of St. Therese of the Holy Child Jesus and the Holy Face. For three days, Boholano pilgrims walked to the Church to pray for intercession of St. Therese.

That same day (Friday) a multi-sectoral group called Boholanos for Truth, Accountability and Reform signed a manifesto at the Saya's Resturant and identified March 7 as a Prayer Rally Day at the Plaza Rizal while other "Mass for Truths" will be celebrated in selected towns.

The twin events are proof positive that Boholanos, with innate religiosity, will call on the heavens for devotion and solicitation.
