Radio Veritas, the leading faith-based AM radio station in the Philippines celebrated its 52 years of service of bringing news and promoting Church advocacies in the service of human dignity and proclamation of the Gospel.
In his homily during the Thanksgiving Mass of Radio Veritas held at the Veritas Chapel in West Avenue, Quezon City, on April 4, 2021, Easter Sunday, Archbishop Charles Brown, Apostolic Nuncio to the Philippines acknowledged the big role that the radio station has been portraying in spreading the truth through evangelization.
“For me as a representative of Pope Francis here in the Philippines it gives me great pleasure to congratulate all of you on 52 years of faithful evangelization, you are gifted to give and you are giving through your mission of evangelization, you are engaged in proclamation and this is so beautiful,” Archbishop Brown said.

Bishop Broderick Pabillo, Apostolic Administrator of the Archdiocese of Manila, also congratulated Radio Veritas for playing an important role in the spiritual lives of the faithful.
