The Malunggay’s leaves are edible, and it is considered to be one of the most nutritious plants in the world.  Even though the people have no land they will grow their plants in sacks of soil as the Malunggay is a robust plant and grows easily.

Unsere kleine Gemeinschaft hat das Ziel,
      mit allen Mitteln ihrer Macht
           das Herz Jesus zu ehren ...     (Marie Madeleine)
