PHILIPPINES: A bible for every family

To distribute a copy of the Bible to every family in the Philippines: the project that started in 2008 is becoming a reality, thanks to the project “May They Be One Bible Campaign,” says the Auxiliary Bishop of Manila, Broderick Pabillo, President of the Advisory Committee for the project.

“The great project of evangelization had begun in order to give a Bible to five million poor households in the country. Then it expanded, thanks to the involvement of all 86 Catholic dioceses in the country.” The project provides for formation programs and Bible study for all those who have received a Bible. 

Since 2008, over two million copies of the Bible have been distributed: in 2016, about 500,000 copies. “In many families, the daily and common reading of the Word of God has begun, with abundant fruits in the life of the family,” the Bishop says.
