Religious Relics Spared from the Bohol Earthquake

These are compilations of religious images that were spared from the 7.2 earthquake that hit Bohol last October 16, 2013 taken from various sources in the internet.  Despite the widespread devastation of the disaster that claimed more than 100 lives so far, Catholics in this part of Visayas remain unshaken and hopeful.

Let us continue to offer prayers to the individuals who died and for the families affected by the tragedy.
