|4th International Day of Prayer, Amsterdam 2000|
Bishop Ramon C. Argüelles, who participated already last year in the Day of Prayer, has been the military bishop in the Philippines since 1995, and is responsible for all the country’s emigrants.
“I had the honorable task to accompany the relics of St. Therese of Lisieux on her pilgrimage through our country. Wherever she went across the different islands we also solemnly displayed the image of the Lady of All Nations and spread-out her prayer card. We pray that the Lady of All Nations will move the more than seven million emigrant Filipinos in one hundred and ninety-four nations so widely dispersed around the world to be the instruments of her Son in bringing the Good News to all people.”
