Guess How These Catholic Groups Are Helping Typhoon Survivors in the Philippines

Up to 22,000 survivors of Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda are finally receiving some international assistance: Donations of more than 12,000 rosaries and 10,000 scapulars. (Quick, someone notify Joe Klein!)

A CBCP [Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines] News report said the religious articles came from Jocelyn Bernina, a staff member of John Aboitiz Carcovich through God the Father Foundation, Inc. and a friend of CBCP Media Office director Msgr. Pedro Quitorio III.

But there’s even more good news:

Last week, the pro-life prayer support group ‘Rosary for Life’ donated to CBCP an initial 3,000 rosaries followed by another 10,000.

Very generous.

I’ve made a little infographic to help you understand what’s going on here.

Oh, and just when you thought the selfless graciousness of the godly couldn’t get any bigger:

At least 1,000 copies of Tagalog Bibles from the Episcopal Commission for the Biblical Apostolate (ECBA) were also sent to those who were affected by the recent Typhoon Yolanda in the Central Philippines. Dr. Natividad Pagadut, ECBA executive secretary, said the bibles are meant to help survivors of typhoon Yolanda to stand up again and strengthen their faith.

I’m sure the monsignors’ marvelous magnanimity is much appreciated by those who are cold, hungry, and homeless.

If you’d like to contribute to the relief efforts in the Philippines — to help finance stuff of questionable importance, such as medical aid, building supplies, and blankets — go here.
