Radio Veritas to hold Festival of Saints


Radio Veritas, the Catholic radio station of the Archdiocese of Manila will hold a Festival of Saints from May 15-30, 2019, at the Our Lady of Veritas Chapel from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.


The Festival of Saints is a way to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary in celebration of the Flores of May or Flores de Mayo. The festival will showcase the relics of known saints like Saint Simon Stock and Saint Bernardine of Siena.

Saint Simon Stock, who was a Prior in a group of Carmelites founded many communities across Europe especially in University towns such as Cambridge, Oxford, Paris, and Bologna. Saint Stock was visited by the Virgin Mary bearing the message, "Receive, my beloved son, this scapular of thy Order; it is the special sign of my favor, which I have obtained for thee and for thy children of Mount Carmel. He who dies clothed with this habit shall be preserved from eternal fire. It is the badge of salvation, a shield in time of danger, and a pledge of special peace and protection."

 Saint Bernardine of Siena was an ordained priest during the 15th century was known for his devotion in caring for the people, especially the sick. During the 1400s Bernardine, accompanied by a group of men, helped ill people in Siena from a plague. He then committed to studying and fasting to discover God’s plans for him to accomplish.

These mentioned are only among the several saints whose relics have been placed at the chapel of Radio Veritas for the public to see. These relics are the remaining remnants and proof of existence of the holy people that have stood bearing the standard of God for the people.
