    protect our families, keep them united in love.

    you, an example of Christian fortitude,
    sustain our Faith, make it spread and grow strong around us.

    you, who died in foreign country,
    take care of Filipinos living and Working abroad.

    You, the country's first Canonized saint,
    be the country's special protector, help us to work in harmony and progress, give us peace.

    Thank you so much for this nice article. It made me more interested to know how their life (Saints) goes on for the sake of faith, trust and mostly the love of God which are the most and evergreatest gift that the Christians had received...thanks to Pope / St. John Paul II for canonizing and making St. Lorenzo Ruiz the first Filipino saint...for
    I am a Filipino although it's very hard to become a saint but I always longed in God's kingdom someday, amidst being a sinner but God's grace be with us...God bless us all...
