The Filipino people loved Pope John Paul II very much, and I know we will come to know you and love you too. Regardless of what negative information the media conveys, we know that the Holy Spirit truly inspired the cardinals when they chose you as pope. People/ media do not understand that the Catholic Church will not change its teachings because The TRUTH does not change. This pontificate is a time of blessing and profound mercy for all of us. I learned you are a Marian devotee. All who are devoted to our Mama Mary will not lead us astray, since she points us all to Christ her son. She points us all to the right way. I hope you will come to the Philippines very soon because we will surely welcome you warmly. Most Filinos are devout Catholics and we need your inspiration to help us through our day-to-day struggles. Thank you for accepting to be our pope, our father. We will continue to pray for you!
