"As millions of Filipinos would lose faith in their own country, a mass exodus began

Hundreds of thousands would leave the country to escape a life of poverty

Against this exodus was a lone Canadian priest who worked among the poor

He would lead them and inspire them to hang on to their meager existence and urged them to stay together and help build the country

But as the economy worsened, more and more Filipinos would leave the Philippines and abandon the poor to their fate

But this man would stay behind and dedicate his life to saving them"
