I found this gem of a video while browsing on YouTube. In March of this year, the pilgrim relics of St. Therese of Lisieux visited the Philippines, touring the country and 'meeting' her devotees from all across the islands. St. Therese is a special patron of the armed forces of this country (her shrine is in close proximity to the Villamor Air Base), and as one can see in this video, they certainly turned out full force to honor their illustrious and holy helper in heaven. What is interesting is that the police and the army have 'traditionally' been tied with Freemasonry; however one does not see any trace of that at all in the video. It is certainly very moving to see such faith and devotion in action!
