“He was martyred and in Guam..when the priest was martyred before him, because of the hatred of the faith, he did not run away. He stayed and he was also martyred, he was also killed and thrown.”

To prepare for the canonization, Filipinos have organized a Triduum of prayer in some of the most important churches in Rome such as the “Gesù” and “Saint Mary Major”. Their  ambassador to the Vatican says Filipinos are excited.

“This is our second saint to be canonized and of course we are all very excited. The best thing is that it´s for the Filipino youth. I think there are 10,000 Filipinos coming from the Philippines to witness this canonization, aside from all the other Filipinos from the other countries”

The canonization of Pedro Calungsod also has  a digital dimension. That’s because this future Saint has a very active presence on Twitter and Facebook, where you can find all the materials on the life and message of this second Filipino Saint.
