Relics. 10.22.13. Loon, Bohol.
Faith heals. And it’s apparent in the town of Loon where the centuries-old Church of Our Lady of Light once stood.
The structure collapsed after last Tuesday’s 7.2 magnitude earthquake that hit Central Visayas.
Beneath the rubble, rescue teams found the statue of Our Lady of Light in one piece.
For devotees, the recovery of the church relic was “miraculous”. They describe it as “symbol of hope”.
For non-believers, no words can explain why devotees find comfort in a statue. For believers, no words are needed to explain how a relic is helping them believe that hope springs eternal.
