have you watched Santino? Santino,the character name, from the new telenovela of Kapamilya network "May Bukas Pa". This telenovela is not only entertaining but very educational and teaches moral values and virtues. Every day I make sure I get something from the conversation of Santino and "BRO" ( Jesus Christ ). At time of financial crisis and difficulties, this telenovela somehow reminds all of us that if we only know how to listen to God, nothing is impossible.

I totally agree with you cathya...this teleserye will teaches us a lesson not only for kids but for adults as well. Congrats to ABS-CBN for making this teleserye. Btw, this kind of teleserye is familiar with the cartoons "Marcelino Pan Y vino" (Did I spell it correctly?) Hehe.

This is a very inspirational teleserye ever! Aside from the fact that it teaches us to have faith in Bro or Jesus Christ, their story is based on reality. Although I couldn't watch it often, my grandmother would always talk about it and Santino's way of changing other people's lives. A big hand to ABS-CBN for creating this show.

This is the show that the our local tv networks should be airing. Very pinoy and worth watching. My barkada's even try to imitate Santino's innocent pleas..

i so love the teleserye...especially the first week...i cried a lot...its actually a very refreshing teleserye since it somehow lets you think of your spirituality and your relationship to God...also it teaches values to children since they all can relate to him...

Yes I am glad that ABS did something like this. It was the complete opposite of their previous telenovela "Eva Fonda". This time it is more of values formation and if there are violence involve it is mild and you can easily identify which is right and wrong in the movies. It also is very appropriate for kids nowadays.

Hello cathya! I also watch this telenovela and I love it. It's actually good for children to watch because they will learn many lessons especially having faith to God. I remember when I was out, it's almost 7 in the evening, I passed by to a group of children who were talking about "May Bukas Pa" and they said they will go home because it's already Santino..hehehe..

I absolutely like this telenovela!I watched this every night. It seems Philippine television finally created a wonderful TV show not just remakes and fantaserye. This is very timely especially nowadays that people seemed lost in their struggle for existence. My heart throbbing especially on the scenes where Santino talked to "bro"which is Jesus Christ, I mean it is very heart warming and touching. A good message that despite hardships and poverty, there is still someone up there who never neglect us who never tire in extending help for us. Very educational and worth watching!congratulations to ABS-CBN for creating such wonderful show like May Bukas Pa.

hello cathya. I also manage to watch santino sometimes, when I go home early. But my son, 4 years old, always watches this show. And when ask, who is “bro” he would always answer Papa Jesus. Sometime he would ask me why Jesus is talking to Santino, and I will just tell him, that you can talk to Him by praying. And he believes. We just have to have a faith like a child so miracles will happen. Just like in the show May bukas Pa. Hope lots of people will watch this.
