His inspirational message deeply-derived from his heart is truly sensible and gets political, psychological, social, intellectual and spiritual impacts to every citizen of the Philippines. The Filipino people attentively listened to his relevant speeches in spite of long-hours of standing in the middle of the rain. The religious faith of the Filipinos retained and sustained regardless of natural calamities and life challenges they had been experienced in the past up to the present times. His message focused on helping the poor ones which applies the true Christian life.

Pope Francis builds his Christian legacy for the Filipino people. His advocacy to help especially the poor ones is absolutely amazing. He touches one’s life through his mission. He listens to anybody attentively.  He speaks well with a sense of humor. He comes to you directly, hold your hands and bless you gracefully.
