Buhay na Buhay ang Iglesia! Tatlong Milyon sa Misa ni Papa Francis

Mahigit Tatlong Milyong mga Katoliko ang dumalo sa Misa ni Santo Papa Francis sa Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Ang nagsasabing "Ang Iglesia Katolika ay Tuluyan ng Bumagsak sa Kanluran" ay hindi lang nagkakamali kundi mandaraya at mapanlinlang.  Heto at mahigit TATLONG MILYON po ang mga dumalo sa pagtatapos na Misa ng WYD na pinangungunahan ni Santo Papa Francisco sa Rio de Janeiro, Brazil na kinabibilangan ng halos 2.5 na mga kabataang kaanib ng tunay na Iglesia ni Cristo.
