Filipinos wish to witness first-ever Papal Mass in Abu Dhabi

Thousands of Filipinos and other expats have been hoping to get their own free ticket to the historic Papal Mass set to take place this February 5 at the Zayed Sports Stadium and here are their thoughts if ever they will be given the chance to hear the mass in person.

===

“It would really be a spiritual milestone to see the Pope up close and personal. It will surely mean a lot to me like a Divine encounter of a lifetime.”
– Julius Arce Zafra, Accountant, 5 years in the UAE

“Attending the Papal mass is a Holy one and will give eternal happiness for me. I believe in His Holiness. He is God’s messenger to the world filled with conflict. For me, His presence is God’s presence in His Holy Mass.”
Emma Wenceslao Sentones, Administrative Assistant, 7 years in the UAE

“As one of the believers and advocate of the Catholic teachings and principles, it would be my greatest pleasure to be part of the celebration of the Holy Eucharist with Pope Francis and the rest of the faithful which happens to take place on my 27th birthday. I believe that this visit will lead a way of giving wisdom and understanding to the people with different beliefs, unite and be enlighten that in times of despair and darkness, there is light, hope, love, peace, blessings and salvation be granted to us from our Almighty Father,”
– Alyssa Jane Mallari Isana, Electronics Engineer, 4 years in the UAE

“This will be considered as very special and memorable occasion for me and my family as my parents are also here in their holidays and to be given a chance on the Papal Mass with the whole family in complete attendance is already an immense blessing, apart from the Blessing we will be receiving from His Holiness on that extraordinary moment here in the UAE which has been a home for me for more than 15 years.”
– Analiza Binondo, Electronics Engineer, 15 years in the UAE

“This is another way of sending God’s message saying to me …“ dont worry my Son, I’m just here and will bless you because I know all your sacrifices and i will always love you wherever you maybe”. It is truly indeed a blessing for all devotees to have this rare chance to meet/ see the Pope despite of differences in belief/ religion in this country. Because God sees no religion, color or race but a heart of faith, love and hope.”
– Michael Angelo Repe, Lounge Captain, 14 years in the UAE

“I would like to commend the UAE government for their policy of tolerance that allows expats to express their faith. I for one, am not Catholic, I’m an Evangelical/Protestant Christian but the religious tolerance they have showed to all the different religions paved the way for a more peaceful and harmonious community cultivated with respect and acceptance.”
– Sheryl A. Palacios-Manalo, Senior Health Unit Coordinator, 12 years in the UAE

“It means a life changing and once in a lifetime experience that I should not miss. It will have a big impact in my life especially on spiritual aspect. There’s really a time for everything and this is in accordance to His plan to attend the Papal mass.”
– Engr. Elmer O. Casao, Professional Electrical Engineer, 3 years in the UAE

“It is an amazing experience to be chosen as one of the faithful to attend the Papal Mass. It would make me reminisce of my encounter with then former Pope and now Saint John Paul II 24 years ago when I attended World Youth Day ’95 in Manila. To see the Holy Father in person makes me feel blessed because it is not the Pope you see but Jesus Christ himself.”
Angelito G. Castillo, Civil Engineer, 14 years in the UAE
