 Pro-Life Philippines Chairman Ed Sorreta opened the convention by saying that we in a time full of trials and opportunities. “These are trying times because we do not have Sr. Pilar in our midst any longer; these are times of opportunity as well, because we are getting new members. These are trying times because RH has passed, but these are also times of opportunity because more and more Catholics and Pro Lifers are now beginning to awaken from a deep slumber and are ready to take action.”

 

 Mr. Eric Manalang, Pro-Life Philippines President on his keynote speech,  said,  ”  The most difficult lives are those of the real Catholics daily living out their faith and getting branded as KJ, old fashioned, not inclusive, judgemental,etc etc.but they are the nearest the gates of hell,fighting the devil, shielding and pulling back lost souls about to give up.”

Pro Life Executive Director Lorna Melegrito cited all the activities and projects done and participated by Pro Life Philippines for the past two years. It was worth noting that present in many of the pictures of the activities of Pro Life Philippines was Sr. Pilar, whose indomitable spirit lives with all of us to this day.
