My prayers to all the people of Marawi: for all those who were kidnapped, taken as hostages, murdered and their families, those homes, residences and churche were burned and those who are displaced due to the recent violence that erupted. Our special prayers to Fr. Chito Sunganob, and church personnel who were taken forcibly while praying in the cathedral. We assure too our unity to our Catholic and Muslim brothers and sisters who profess in the same God/Allah.
