The visit of Pope Francis to the Philippines is something different compared to other papal visits that I have observed through television and the internet.
It is different because the effect is two-fold. His presence has a positive, energetic and enthusiastic effect on the Filipino. The Filipino spirit also has a positive, energetic and enthusiastic effect on the Holy Father.
I have tried to rummage through internet media and collate links. Credit is given to Rappler's Youtube channel. I have posted them here for the benefit of other Filpinos abroad who wish to keep track of Pope Francis' Apostolic Visit to our country.
I did find the days moving and renewing. To a degree, it renewed my faith.
