Devotees recall healing during celebration of feast of God the Father in Tagbilaran
TAGBILARAN CITY — Mely Galao-Dugaduga turned to an image of God the Father of All Mankind so she would be healed of her heart and lung ailments.
On March 18, 2023, she passed out and was later intubated inside the intensive care unit of the Gov. Celestino Gallares Medical Center for a week due to health complications.
“There’s no one who could help me. I prayed for healing and I was miraculously healed by the God the Father of All Mankind,” said Dugaduga, a mother of three children and six grandchildren.
The 63-year-old woman became a devotee of God the Father of All Mankind who has been considered by many as miraculous.
“The situation brought me closer to God. Without Him we are nothing,” she said as attributes many of her life’s miracles to God the Father of All Mankind.
Eufronio Brunidor is also a devotee of God the Father of All Mankind whom he credited for a long and healthy life.
“At 91, I’m still healthy. I observe good food, good exercise, good rest and most of all faith in God,” he shared.
Catholics celebrate the Feast of God, the Father of All Mankind, every first Sunday of August.
On Sunday, devotees, including Dugaduga, flocked to the St. Joseph Cathedral in Tagbilaran City to join the Feast Day of the God the Father of All Mankind.
Every devotee has a story of hope, healing, and gratitude.
Some came from Luzon and as far as Davao City on the southern island of Mindanao.
Erlinda Salac, 78, from Talomo, Davao City made it sure she could attend the feast in Bohol. She said her devotion gave her peace of mind.
“I feel God the Father’s love everyday,” said Salac, a devotee since 2003.
Bishop Albert Uy, in his homily, echoed God’s love and empathy.
“We must listen to His message of love,” said the prelate.
The devotion of God the Father of All Mankind in Bohol was introduced by Sister Precy Aseneta-Macasaet, a missionary, visionary and divine healer, who arrived in 2010 when “God the Father of All Mankind” was unknown to many Boholanos.
Sister Precy’s eyes brimmed with tears as she recounted her journey to Bohol to follow the will of the God the Father to spread His love and mercy in a place unfamiliar to her.
That journey was never easy as many doubted, hated and humiliated her.
“I lift everything up to God the Father. I’m able to endure all those miseries because He wants his children to know about Him,” she said.
Sister Precy and more people have become devotees of the God the Father of All Mankind not just in Bohol province but as well in Baguio City, Nueva Ecija, Tuguegarao City, Cebu, Manila, General Santos, and Cagayan de Oro City.
She said she will continue spreading the devotion of God the Father of All Mankind.
“God’s love overflows out of a wellspring of abundance. It is limitless. It is a sharing love that blesses, provides, and gives to others. This is basic to fatherhood,” said Sister Precy.
