Fresh from the blessing he received from Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines President Archbishop Socrates Villegas of the Archdiocese of Lingayen-Dagupan last Saturday, vice presidential candidate Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos Jr. was prayed over by pastors of the Jesus Miracle Crusade (JMC) charismatic movement last Sunday.
The pastors, led by JMC Beloved Minister Poj Almeda, son of the group’s founder and leader, Beloved Pastor Wilde Almeda, performed the laying on of hands to Marcos during the 41st Church anniversary celebration of JMC held at the KB Amoranto Sport Complex in Quezon City.
In his speech before some 40,000 members who attended the celebration, Marcos said the long years of existence of the JMC whose members have stayed together as brethren is a sign of miracle.
He also cited the outreach programs of the group to help others here and abroad as symbols of strong faith.
“Alam ko po na kasama sa inyong pananampalataya ang pagmamahal sa lahat ng inyong kapwa. Ang pagmamahal at pagtulong kagaya po sa madaming ginagawang outreach po ng Jesus Miracle Crusade hindi lamang dito sa Pilipinas kung hindi sa iba’t-ibang lugar sa buong mundo,” he said.
He reiterated the need for all the Filipinos to unite and help one another to bring progress to the country.
He said solutions to the lingering problems of the Filipinos are available and needed only to be implemented by a united Philippines in order to succeed.
