World Fatima Apostolate Philippines launched Ninth Rosary Congress

World Fatima Apostolate Philippines launched its Ninth Rosary Congress on October 13, 2009 at the St. Ignatius Cathedral in Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City.

President Rosario Melchor of the organization noted that this year’s rosary congress commemorates the “Great Miracle of the Sun”— which occurred on October 13, 1917 in Fatima, Portugal, which 100,000 people witnessed.

The group, moreover, celebrated the 100th birth anniversary of Father Patrick Peyton, the Rosary priest, whose cause for beatification is still pending in the Vatican.

Monsignor Mario Martinez, parish priest of Resurrection of Our Lord Parish, welcomed the participants. Keynote speakers include: Fr. Rolly Agustin (St. John Mary Vianney and the Year of the Priest); Fr. Ed Pacete (St. Ignatius de Loyola and St. Francis Javier); Sir Knight Ted Dominguez (Venerable Michael McGivney and The Knights of Columbus); Fr. Vic Robles (Sts. Monica and Augustine and the Blessed Mother); and Fr. Lorenz Festin (Mary and Eucharist).

On the other hand, to raise funds for victims of tropical storm “Ondoy,” Radio Veritas 846 held its Fourth Grand Marian exhibit on the second floor of SM Mall of Asia until October 14. In addition to the 200 life-size images of the Blessed Virgin, there are Marian paintings by inmates of the National Bilibid Penitentiary on exhibit and sale.
