Warning: This blog post may contain some Filipino pride.

Today is the feast day of the first Filipino saint and martyr, San Lorenzo Ruiz. Before his  death, he said:

Tagalog: “Isa akóng Katoliko at buong-pusóng tinátanggáp ang kamatayan para sa Panginoón. Kung ako man ay may ‘sanlibong buhay, lahát ng iyón ay iaálay ko sa Kaniyá.”

English: “I am a Catholic and wholeheartedly do accept death for the Lord; If I had a thousand lives, all these I shall offer to Him.”

San Lorenzo Ruiz, pray for us!
