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.
Let us pray diligently to the dear Lord that he may gives us the grace more and more to recognize our sinfulness and nothingness. At the same time we ask him to fill us with great trust in him and with the spirit of generous dedication. St. Arnold Janssen
