Finally, something positive about Filipinos. Here's something very positive written by Steve Ray about Filipinos. (Hat tip goes to Carmen Castañeda, who sent this to me via e-mail.)
Mr. Ray wrote an Open Letter to the Filipino Catholics in his blog. He wrote this letter for a parish bulletin in Manila, and thanks to publication in all the Filipino newspapers, as well as word-of-mouth through the Filipino Diaspora, this has been circulated widely throughout the world.
I share this with you here because it's a beautiful message about the faith of the Filipino Catholic. If anyone were to ask me, what does it mean to be Catholic and Filipino, I would refer them to this link.
It is truly an inspiring letter.
