Your Excellency Grand Master Chev. Peter Paul Portelli,
It is I who should be grateful to you and to our Confraternity for giving me the opportunity to serve. I am most humbled by this. The relics I was able to obtain through the kindness of the good Franciscan Nuns, the Poor Clares of St Francis who knew I had been trying to obtain the Holy Relics for our Confraternity. We have been helping them rebuild and repair their old monastery and in gratitude obtained the Holy Relics through their Monastery in France from which Mother Superior, Mother Lina had lived and served for 30 years. I sincerely believe this is God's providence to our Confraternity for the good works we are doing.
Please accept this humble gift from the Grand Chapter of the Philippines as a sign of our loyalty and commitment to you our esteemed Grand Master and to the entire Confraternity worldwide.
We serve God by serving the sick and the poor.
All for the glory of God through our Confraternity!
God bless and preserve us!
Chev. Ramon Jose Sebastia-Moreno y Ibarra
