2015 March

Daybreak in Tacloban
In the tender compassion of our God, the dawn from on high shall break upon us 
to shine on those who dwell in darkness and in the shadow of death 
and to guide our feet into the way of peace....

((((((((((((  +  )))))))))))  

Block Rosary Started in the Bunkhouses
One hundred and ten families living in the bunkhouses joined the block Rosary.  All of these families are beneficiaries of the Rosa Mystica Health Mission.  
May the Mother of the Poor be their constant refuge.

Patients Hoping to Get Relief Through the Mission
From Samar, this boy was brought to the mission in Tacloban
in the hope of obtaining free surgical repair of cleft lip and palate.  

Patient with breast cancer sought help for the surgical removal of breast with cancer. She came with Dr. Maire from Southern Leyte to Tacloban hoping for relief. Mission volunteers brought her to Eastern Visayas Regional Medical Center for biopsy and surgery.

Waiting for free medicines
A mission patient.  Hungry.  One among many. 
Hungry family.  The father works as a security guard but his salary is low and comes irregularly.  He can barely feed his children from his earnings.  The mission augments the children's food.
He is asking the mission to help him find other sources of income.

Free meal for patients on the farewell to Dr. Maire Nesta Nic Gerhailt. 
Farewell, Dr. Maire!  
We cannot thank you enough for your dedicated service to the poor.  We pray that God will bless you always.
May the road rise to meet you.  May the wind be always at your back.  May the sun shine warm upon your face, the rains fall soft upon your fields.  And until we meet again, until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His Hand.
If I only had wings, I would fly, I would fly to the sky, I would fly through the winds and beg you to come back...
 Farewell, Doc Maire.

Thank you for sharing our simple joys!!!


 Bon Voyage Virginie and Floriane!
 Thank you for your generous help!
