The virtual portal was re-launched by CBCP?s Media Office for overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who cannot visit their departed loved ones in cemeteries. ?This is primarily intended for Filipinos abroad-OFWs and seafarers who will find it hard to celebrate Undas,? said CBCP Media Office director Msgr. Pedro Quitorio. According to the CBCP, the site with a new design, offers some podcasts and catechesis on the significance and liturgical meaning of the celebration of All Saints? Day and All Souls? Day. Quitorio added that Filipinos away from home can also request for prayers and Masses for their beloved dead by clicking ?Prayer Request? and then listing down the names of their beloved dead for whom they wish to offer Mass. Last year, the online service received prayer requests for almost 20,000 departed Filipino Catholics. — CBCP/PIA ]]>
