Hi Steve,

Thank you for the wonderful talks last night and tonight in St. Mary’s Church- Dubai. Me and my fiancee learned so much about Catholic Faith and Catholic Church. We are looking forward for the last talk tomorrow about the Eucharist. God bless you! :)

Perhaps being poor of material things is a blessing, also being sickly..we realize this when we are blessed with the gift of faith from God, the good thing is that even rich filipinos have learned how to become poor in spirit and share their wealth with those in need. Hope we have more catholic defenders who can help us win back our brothers and sister who have fallen into the snares of protestants(fundamentalist movement) who themselves are not united due to their contradicting interpretations of the Bible. Thank you for highlighting the good side of filipinos, what you’ve described really are the traits of typical filipino catholics. May Jesus Christ bless you and may Mama Mary love you.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the inspiring open letter.

I’m so glad that I’ve seen and hear you in person here at St. Mary’s Church Dubai. I’ve learned a lot from your 3 talks from Nov. 29 to Dec. 1, 2012. I would say that I’m inspired to study more and learn about our faith so I could not only practice but to share it. I’m praying that you would inspire more people all over the world specially those who are hungry to learn more about the truth.

Take Care. God bless you, your wife and your whole family.

Hope you could come back to Dubai soon so I could again listen to your talk.

Thank you very much Bro. Steve Ray for the 3 day wonderful talks here at St Marys Church Dubai. I am proud to be catholic most especially for being a Filipino Catholic. God bless you, Mama Mary loves you.

I wish u could have answered some questions , which u promised to address, but u failed. Am sure of one thing u have completely misunderstood what Jesus meant church. Jesus said I will break this temple and rebuild it in three days, the new church means body of Christ and not buildings, Jesus Christ is the head of the church.

Either u should be correct or Jesus, u preach pope is the head of the church.

Read the letters of Paul which leads the church in oneness.

May god help u, next time u come 2 Hyderabad, come 4 a debate, instead of teaching , where in bible it is written to find every thing in bible.

May god help u.

Sorry you have been deceived by the anti-Catholics. Even your spelling and lack of coherence in your message demonstrates your lack of learning in these matters. Maybe next time you would like to debate me on stage?

Hey Raj, Jesus went to heaven t be The invisible head and He left a visible head of his Church on earth. Jesus gave Peter the keys of authority (for meaning see Is 22) and listen to Steve Ray’s talk on the Pope (from the Bible).

Dear Bro. Steve,

Hi, how are you hope you and your family are doing well. This is my first visit to your website as I come across it while checking an article about Manny Pacquiao’s loss posted in FB. Sad to hear though. I’m working here in Saudi Arabia with my family for more than 15 years without spending a single Christmas in our hometown since we got here. I just want you to know that seeing a site like this is just so uplifting and inspiring and I just can’t hold my tears from flowing reading every word in every page especially that I’m in a place where freedom to express my faith is very suppressed. But, in spite of it, we still find ways or manage to stay as close as possible to serving the Lord secretly thru our community and our virtual parish of St. Arethas, God is so amazing he gave us strength to serve Him even in the middle of a very hostile country. I pray one day that you come to visit us to give talks openly to us in the name of our Lord Jesus thru Mama Mary’s intercession and all the angels (esp. St. Michael & St. Gabriel) and saints (esp. St. Arethas of Najran,St. Pedro, St. Lorenzo) as many are thirsty to hear His words in this land. Sorry, if I posted here, I just don’t know where to leave a comment. God bless and take care

Thank you for the compliments you give to Filipinos like me. I will share your message to Facebook. I wish and pray that I could answer our fellow brethren Protestant the way you explain. Like CFCKSA said, we’d like to hear your talks live in Saudi Arabia. Even very seldom I can attend Holy Mass because its by invitation. I think it is not impossible. More power to you. God bless!

Hi Steve,

Not sure where to post this, but I just want to invite you and your readers to watch my short documentary of this inexplicable solar phenomenon — truly, a Divine and Supernatural Manifestation that occurred at the Divine Mercy Hills in El Salvador city, Philippines during Feast of Divine Mercy (Mercy Sunday). Over 10,000 people witnessed the “Dancing Sun Miracle.”


Was this on the southern tip of the island of Cebu? About eight years ago our family also saw the dancing sun. We couldn’t believe it but we knew that was really happening. An amazing miracle of God.

Dear Steve,

I’m from Cebu City, Philippines. Last October 15, 2013, two provinces in the Philippines (Bohol and Cebu-my province) were struck by a 7.2 earthquake, many centuries old churches were totally or partially damaged, and more or less 100 people died and hundreds of people were homeless. And last November 8, 2013, the Eastern Visayas Region of the Philippines was wrecked by the super typhoon Haiyan. More than 10 provinces were totally damaged the Super typhoon. Most of the people at the affected areas are left homeless, and hungry.

These are trying times for us here in the Philippines. Those affected by the calamities need water, food and shelter. The situation here is so heartbreaking , so hard. Please PRAY for us that we will be able to overcome this ordeal, that we will be able to rise again from this misery, but most of all, that our FAITH in God will NEVER vanish or fade. To give you an idea how strong typhoon Haiyan that hit the Philippines, here’s the link . As of this date, there are more than 2,000 people died including children. Please PRAY for us that God will give the Filipinos STRENGTH and HOPE. PLEASE PRAY FOR US.
