In the Philippines, the Divine Word Missionaries arrived in Bangued, Abra in 1909. Today, it is evident that the missionary grains planted by Saint Arnold on the Philippine soil are now bearing hundreds of fruits. Now, there are more than 500 Filipino SVDs and around 140 of them are doing missionary works abroad.
We allow ourselves to be led by the hand of Divine Providence like children. When it becomes clear that this or that is his Will, then it is time to act decisively. As long as such is not the case, we are somewhat like a man who taps about in darkness. St. Arnold Janssen
