Preparation Day: February 27, 2012
The more than 50 volunteers - from France, America, Quebec, Switzerland, Belgium, Ireland, Singapore, Malaysia, China, Japan, Korea and the Philippines – are united for the love of God and of “these least of the little ones” to work for the 6th edition of Rosa Mystica Health Mission which will run from Monday 27 February to 2 March of this year.
For the first time, the mission is taking place in February during the dry season and we are greeted by beautiful weather. The previous five missions took place in July, during the monsoon season (June-December).
Manila from the air
Father Onoda gave us his usual warm welcome at the priory in Manila. Following the previous missions, the local authorities are now more and more favourable and this allows the SSPX to take a more important role in the Philippines, particularly in the pro-life battle which is still raging.

At the end of the day, with the gym organised and the pharmacy fairly in order, the volunteers can retire excited for the next day’s challenge, everything being as ready as possible to welcome the 3000 patients that are expected for the next 5 days.
