Catching the Totus Tuus Tour in Gateway Mall
When I learned about the Totus Tuus Tour on social media, I immediately looked for information on its schedule. The Totus Tuus Tour is an exposition of the relics of Pope John Paul II, one of the most well-loved popes and soon-to-be saint.
I’m actually a fan of PJPII, after I saw him drive by Roxas Boulevard in the popemobile during the 1995 World Youth Day. You just need to look at him and feel something amazing — what more when he looked my way and waved his hand (he looked and waved at everyone in that crowded highway). My family and I felt blessed by the Lord that day.
Visiting his relics at Gateway Mall in Cubao — the exhibit runs until April 24 — is like catching another glimpse of a great man, and soon-to-be saint, that has touched the lives of not just Catholics but also people of other religions around the world.
The Totus Tuus Tour was organized on the occasion of Pope John Paul II’s canonization on April 27, 2014. With this event, the faithful can venerate and pray before these sacred relics to deepen their devotion and love for the Catholic Church’s newest saint.
The tour will go around different places in Metro Manila and the Philippines. For schedules and information on the Totus Tuus Tour, you can visit jp2relics.blogspot.com or the St. John Paul II Relics – Philippines Facebook Page.
