is nearly identical to the one he used as archbishop, notable for its simplicity. Following in the steps of Benedict XVI, he replaced the triple crown with a triple mitre, symbolizing the Pope's three missions to teach, govern and judge. Behind the mitre are the crossed keys of St. Peter, one gold and one silver, united by a red string. Published on Mar 19, 2013

Pope Benedict XVI: A Living Church in the Philippines

The Pope has said that only by relying on God is it possible to humanize society and rediscover the true destiny of all mankind. Speaking to the bishops of the Philippines at the end of their Ad Limina visit, Benedict XVI praised the vitality of the Church in the Philippines, the commitment of small ecclesial communities and lay organizations who are at the forefront of transmitting the Christian message to all of society. The Pope then stressed the importance of evangelization and the formation of young Christian families based on the indissolubility of marriage. Finally, he hoped that many young people would respond to the call to the priesthood and consecrated life. Uploaded on Feb 18, 2011.

Basilica Del Santo Niño Library

Heeding the wise advice of St. Augustine of Hippo that in every house there should be a library (Possidius 31, 6,8), the Augustinian Friars of the Basilica put up a library in one of the corners of the convent. We don’t exactly know when this library was put up, but it is safe to surmise that it was established when the convent was constructed and completed in 1764.

According to the historical sketch done by Msgr. Quintin Velasquez, the image was ordered by the Augustinian friars of Vigan from Spain in 1871 came to Luna accidentally. The galleon set to sail to the Philippines was heading toward Vigan was caught by a storm in the coast of La Union. When the storm ended, they tried to continue their journey but the wind urged them to come back to the port. The captain decided to return to the port and have the statue delivered to Vigan by land. When the statue was about to be transported to Vigan, the men could not remove the statue from its place. They took it as a signal that the image wanted to stay. It was negotiated upon by the Augustinian friars and Fr. Marcelino Ceballos that the image would stay in Namacpacan. A bienvenida party was held in welcoming Our Lady. The town's name was changed to Luna, in honor of the national heroes, Antonio and Juan Luna, whose mother is a native of the place. Presently, Luna's boundary arch proudly announce, "Welcome to Luna, Shrine of Our Lady of Namacpacan."

Ina Poon Bato

Our Lady of Ina Poonbato (Botolan, Zambala, Philippines) became popular after the explosion of Mt. Pinatubo in June 1991 when it was half buried in lava.  The image of Ina Poonbato is said to be of miraculous character. The statue was found by the Aeta chief Djadig over four hundred years ago.  He brought the beautiful lady carved in shining wood to this home.  His wife threw the statue without recognizing its meaning into the fire.  The fire burned the house down but left the statue unscathed.  It soon became an object of veneration among the Aetas.  The first missionaries to the Zambalas region (1608, Recoletos) recognized the statue as that of Our Lady and transferred it to their church.  During the Philippine revolution, patriots rebels took the image to their church, the Philippine Independent Church.  A replica, made by Maximo Vicente, sculptor, in 1976, became a traveling Madonna.  Beginning in 1981 the Ina Poonbato has been to nearly all dioceses in the Philippines.  In Rome, it was blessed by John Paul II. Two things may be remembered especially.  When Djadig discovered the "lady carved in shining wood," he heard a voice telling him, "Djadig, Djadig, take me home with you."  The call of Mary goes to the heart of all of us: "Take me home with you."  The Recoleto missionaries first thought they had to deal with anito worship.  But when they saw the image, they knew better.  They were convinced, "She must have paved the way for our coming."

Our Lady of Consolation, Minalin, Pampanga

The devotion to Our Lady of Consolation happened when St. Monica in a vision received a black leather belt from the Blessed Virgin, who assured the holy widow that she would take under her special protection all those who wore it in her honor. In return, Monica gave it to her son, Augustine who later changed his ways and eventually became one of the saints in the Roman Catholic Church.

La Virgen Milagrosa

Badoc, Ilocos Norte houses the Sanctuary of the Miraculous Statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the La Virgen Milagrosa. History traces the life-sized statue to Nagasaki, Japan. It was sent floating in the sea by missionaries operating in secret in Japan (for fear of persecution during the Tokugawa Regime), along with the Miraculous Statue of the Black Nazarene (Sinait's Santo Cristo Milagroso). It was first found by local fishermen in the shores of Barangay Dadalaquiten, on the boundary between Sinait and Badoc, in the year 1620. Only fishermen from Sinait were able to move the Statue of the Black Nazarene. The fishermen from Badoc, unable to move the Black Nazarene, were able to move the La Virgen Milagrosa that came with it - which was, in turn, unable to be moved by the fishermen from Sinait. They took the statues to their respective towns, hence becoming their patron saints. Today The La Virgen Milagrosa is enshrined at the Badoc Church.

Nuestra Señora de los Dolores de Turumba ("Our Lady of Sorrows of Turumba")

is the name for a specific statue of the Virgin Mary as Our Lady of Sorrows, enshrined in Pakil, Laguna.

The image, according to tradition, belonged to some missionaries who crossed Laguna de Bay in a launch. When the launch was shipwrecked, some of its relics were washed ashore including the image of the Virgin. One Friday morning, some fishermen found the image in the nets. Believing it was a religious image, they decided to drop it off at a parish church. When they started to carry the painting, they found that it was heavy. They tried to carry it in many directions, until it was near the church of Pakil. While they headed that way, the wind and current aided their course; and when they landed, they left the image on a rock so they could continue their fishing duties.

A group of women found the image one Sunday morning. Although it had rained during the night, the canvas was dry. When they tried to take it away, they could not move it; even the strongest among them, Mariangga, could not lift it. They quickly told the parish priest, who in turn called the sacristans, choir members and churchgoers to get the image. As they lifted the image, the people around begun to sing and dance. To their surprise, the image gave way. And So the Turumba to Our Lady was born.

Pudentiana

is a traditional Christian saint of the 2nd century. She is sometimes called Potentiana and is often coupled with her sister, Praxedes the martyr. According to her acta, published by the Bollandists (dating from the 8th century) and the Martyrology of Reichenau, she was a Roman virgin of the early Christian church, daughter of Saint Pudens, friend of the Apostles, and sister of Praxedes.

The Spanish Conquistador Miguel López de Legazpi, the founder of the city of Manila, gained possession of the territory in 1571 on 19 May, the feast of Pudentiana (in Spanish "Potenciana"), and declared her patron saint of what is now the Philippines.

As her name is not found in any of the ancient martyrologies and owing to the unreliability of her origins, the cult of Pudentiana was suppressed in 1969

are a group of nuns, who dedicate their life in adoration of the Lord. They do so by taking turns to worship the Blessed Sacrament 24/7. Not only is the habit of the Holy Spirit Adoration Sisters unusual. Whoever joins the convent says goodbye to the world forever. The nuns can only communicate with the outside world through a grille.

They are a cloistered-contemplative missionary Congregation, living in community, whose members are entirely dedicated to the contemplative life in the service of perpetual adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Thus they offer intercessory prayer for the needs of all. The rose color of their habits, which they wear in honor of the Holy Spirit, symbolizes our dedication to the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity.

The Abbey of Our Lady of Montserrat, Manila

The church and adjoining San Beda College is run and taken care of by the Benedictine monks, who settled and put up the college and church in 1901. Prior to settling in Manila, they served as missionaries and pastors upon setting foot in Surigao, year 1895. The church serves two purposes: as a college chapel for the students of the college and as abbey church for the Benedictine monks. Benedictine Father Lesmes Lopez and Brother Salvador Alberich did the decorations and paintings on this church. This is one of Manila's pre-war churches that escaped the bombings of the city. Today, it still inspires and awes. Music: Panunumpa, as performed by the Philippine Madrigal Singers.

Sanctuario de Sto. Cristo (San Juan)

The Sanctuario de Sto. Cristo and its adjacent convent were built in 1602-1604 by the Dominican Fathers of the Holy Rosary Province on a site donated by Captain Julian de Cuenca. Before the Sto. Cristo was enthroned, St. John the Baptist was the titular of the church. Hence the name of San Juan given to the town built around the Sanctuario. Both the building were burned during the Chinese uprising of 1639. Reconstructed again in 1639, they were set on fire in July 1763 during the British occupation of Manila and were rebuilt anew in 1774.
