May I share with you.
May I share with you... We left for Iloilo us 3 sisters & 4 lay members of Regina Rosarii Contemplative Association early Sunday morning after giving the Inner Healing through Contemplative Prayer, Healing our Relationship with the earth. It is a timely topic considering that we had planned this a year ago. We were all very tired and still packed the things we would bring that we slept past 12 midnight naturally we did not hear our alarm clocks and were awakened 2:30 AM with Sr. Matt knocking on our doors. Our flight was at 4:20 AM. Naturally when we arrived at the airport the Last call flight to Iloilo was being called. We felt our Lady Regina Rosarii ushering us directly to the plane. We made it!
When we arrived Iloilo our cargoes of blankets, clothes & t-shirts have not yet arrived due congestion of cargoes. We proceeded to Northern Iloilo where we told was badly hit by Typhoon Yolanda. We were on our way in Ajuy, Iloilo when we were met by familes begging in the streets (which is not a natural occurrence because I am from Iloilo) reporting their houses and crops destroyed. We helped them with food and money for their roofs. We saw schools without roofs and electric poles fallen to the ground. We helped 4 schools. The electrical posts were down hence no light, the only lights were the ones coming from the vehicles on the road. We decided to sleep in San Dionisio, Iloilo a coastal town. And here fisher folks came to tell us their stories. The following morning we were brought to the shoreline where a lot of houses were washed out including their belongings and their bangka, (a small boat to catch fish) their only source of income. They were asking for bangka. At that time we had P30,000 good for 3 bangka we did not realize that per bangka would need a motor which means the cost would be more than 10k per bangka. But what can 3 bangka do for 200 families. There were more washouts in the nearby islands and more families. We were bringing medicines and we had free clinic and free medicines. The sea previously with so many fishing boats is now empty. A man was repairing two boats to make them sail again. Sr. Eppie was praying how in the world could she help these fisher folks. The beautiful thing that we saw in eyes of the these fisher folks that even with the promise of just 3 bangkas there eyes showed the brightness of hope. This hit our hearts. Let us gift these people with hope Sr. Eppie told us. So they can live again and begin their "kabuhayan" livelihood which will go a long long way. In a hill in Pilar, Capiz, what is amazing is that the trees were destroyed surrounding our Lady but Virgin Mary more than 80 feet high still stood high. Prayers & blessings, Sr. Menchi

Pligrimage Message from Sr.Eppie
Dear Sisters, Members, Friends and 2013 Marian Pilgrims,
In a few days we will be back to the Philippines. It was good to be able to see off all our pilgrims in Lisbon Portugal. We were all tired but happy to have done a very spiritual pilgrimage.
The Pilgrimage blessings was following us. Even before we left all the Blessings were already felt. We have lighted candles for you all and have offered masses for your Special intentions.
Our trip to Munich was a very good one. We met the Italian Superior of a Congregation working in Zamboanga. We were met very graciously by the Person responsible for the Philippines. She gave us more addresses to work on so that we will be able to realize our convent and the Institute for Contemplation. We saw how the People celebrated the Oktoberfest. Many of them wore traditional bavarian costumes. Our host in Munich drove us to Luzern, a Catholic area in Switzerland. Will be sitting at Benediktushof, Germany on Monday.
All is well.
Take care and all the best. See you during the La Naval Procession.
Sr. Eppie Brasil, OP
