SAN JUAN City, July 15, 2014— Rosaries as amulets? Saint Benedict’s medals for driving away evil spirits? Scapulars for escaping hell-fire?
Homegrown apologetics group Defensores Fidei Foundation (DFF) partners anew with Catholic bookstore Totus in giving the Filipino faithful a free talk on July 19, Saturday, 9 a.m. to 12 noon, which is set to tackle the Catholic devotional use—and occasional abuse—of “sacramentals”, and what makes them different from ordinary, everyday objects.
The speaker slated for this month’s lecture is Fr. Robert Zarate, a Salesian of Don Bosco (SDB).
Venue will be at the Amici training room, second floor, Missouri Square Building, Connecticut corner Missouri Streets, Greenhills, San Juan City.
