Many believers have certain devotions to saints. For many of them, being able to catch a glimpse or get close to a relic that belongs to saints can do miracles in their lives.
Recently, KAMI learned that the incorrupt heart relic of Padre Pio stayed in the Philippines for several days, visiting various places.
Since this gives the faithful the chance to get close to the Saint's relic, many paid homage to it.
One of the actresses who was vocal about her faith and how St. Padre Pio made a difference was Lotlot de Leon, as what GMA reported.
She recounted on Instagram her experience when she visited Padre Pio's relic in Batangas.
"Yesterday, I had the honor of visiting the incorrupt heart relic of Padre Pio, in Sto. Tomas Batangas who is visiting from Italy.
“It was my first time to join or to be part of such event because I have always been "scared" to join such festivities kase pano kung may biglang gulo or may biglang takbuhan..."
"But the moment we set foot by the church I felt something different. Calmness. I was so happy to be there.
“Pumila kame for 3 hours and a half. Yes, mainit. Yes, puno. I saw all kinds of people, may mga lola at lolo, may mga nanay at tatay na bitbit ang mga anak, mga dalaga at binata, may mga may sakit na naka wheelchair.
"Everyone who were there, all our eyes were pointed at one direction. Waiting patiently to get our turn to see the relic upclose."
"Lahat na ng klase ng tao andun..."
"Yes, sanay ako makapanuod sa TV ng Fiesta sa Quiapo and I see the devotees na talagang gusto mahawakan ang Black Nazarene."
"Pero iba pala talaga when you are part of it.
“What I witnessed yesterday is a church filled with love, hope, prayers and faith.
A photo of a believer who hung handkerchiefs with the image of Padre Pio also went viral.
Indeed, like what Lotlot said, "We were all one in believing in God."
