#PopeFrancisPH: Ogie Alcasid, Alden Richards, Janine Gutierrez, John Lapus, other celebs reveal prayers to Pope Francis

TV5’s #DearPopeFrancis campaign drew more than 2 billion messages and prayers. Pope Francis is scheduled to arrive in the Philippines Thursday afternoon, January 15. He will stay in the country until Monday, January 19.


Overwhelming ang success ng campaign ng TV5 para sa pagdating ni Pope Francis na hashtag #DearPopeFrancis.

Dahil sa interactive official Papal Visit online campaign na ito, marami na ang nagpadala ng kanilang prayers gamit ang “#DearPopeFrancis” sa kanilang social media accounts.

Maaari ring i-post ang inyong mga personal prayers and greetings sa mismong website na www.DearPopeFrancis.ph.

Higit sa 2 billion na raw ang nag-post ng kanilang messages and prayers sa naturang website, at mas lalo pa raw madadagdagan ito kapag nasa bansa na si Pope Francis.

Nakatakdang dumating sa Pilipinas si Pope Francis ngayong Huwebes ng hapon, January 15. At mananatili siya rito hanggang sa Lunes, January 19.

Kaugnay nito, sa dalawang showbiz events na dinaluhan ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last January 13—Boardwalk launch of their new endorsers from GMA Network and the launch of the new shows of TV5 na “Happy Sa 2015”—tinanong namin ang celebrities kung ano ang kanilang personal na dasal at mensahe gamit ang #DearPopeFrancis.

Narito ang kanilang mga sagot:


Ogie Alcasid: “#DearPopeFrancis, please intercede for us that our next leaders will be corrupt-free. Ituloy lang ang magandang nangyayari ngayon sa ating bansa.

“For myself, of course kung mabigyan kami ng aking maybahay [Regine Velasquez-Alcasid] ng isa pang baby, then that would be wonderful. But I know that it is all in God’s time.”


Tom Taus: “#DearPopeFrancis, I want to pray for a lot of people here in the Philippines. This country has a soft spot in my heart because this is my home.
