“What the people must learn is the compassion of God in spite of the fact that they were experiencing tragedy, the catastrophe turns into a blessing,” Father Fernando Suarez told Manila Bulletin.
Suarez, who is widely known as the “healing priest,” was among the clergy in the Papal mass held at the airport grounds packed with 160,000 rain-soaked pilgrims and well-wishers last January 17.
“God is so merciful especially for those who are suffering. His heart goes to people who suffer. His heart goes to the people who are experiencing tragedy, catastrophe in life. It is so evident the blessing for the places where the Pope went here precisely to show compassion and his mercy particularly the people of Tacloban,” Suarez said.
