RADIO Veritas 846, the No. 1 faith-based radio station in the Philippines, is inviting the public to visit and take part in its 12th Marian exhibit. Originally set to run from August 1 to 8 at the third floor of SM North Edsa, the exhibit is now extended up to August 16 to allow more Catholic faithful to visit and view the various images of the Blessed Mother and the saints. This is also in line with the celebration of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary on August 15.
Dubbed as “Mary and the Saints in the Year of the Poor,” the exhibit features canonically crowned and popularly venerated images of Mary from various parts of the country. The exhibit features images and sacred relics of saints whose apostolate were focused on the poor and needy, such as Saint Teresa of Calcutta, Saint John Bosco, Saint Dominic Savio, and many others.
Radio Veritas has been continuously propagating the devotion to our Blessed Mother through its Marian exhibits. Last year a similar Mary and the Saints, as well as Mary and the Popes exhibits were held at the SM Mall of Asia.
The exhibit is free and open to the public during mall hours, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
