Allow me to share with you a place where you can meditate, relax, see the wonders of God’s creations, and most especially, experience a different kind of healing.
I would like you to discover the “Kamay ni Hesus Shrine” located in Lucban, Quezon, Philippines.
You need to climb at least 200 plus steps to reach the top. Yes, it takes a lot of energy and effort but I should say that it’s all worth it.
But before you try to take those steps, you can roam around the place first. Here’s a miniature of the “Noah’s Arc.” It’s actually a retreat center where you can stay overnight, or hold retreats and recollections, to meditate, re-examine yourselves, renew and strengthen your relationship with God.
You can relax your eyes just watching these cute little fishes swimming around the pond, just before you begin climbing the steps to the top.
The shrine was founded by Rev. Fr. Joseph “Joey” Ayala Faller. You can read the full story behind the construction of this shrine at joeyfaller.org.
Here you go. Your time starts now. Take those steps to the top!
As you climb, you will see the different stations of the cross, including The Last Supper and
the crucifixion of Jesus Christ…
Now that’s a view from the middle part to the top.
I took a picture of the clouds up there. They were so peaceful to look at. Very peaceful.
Then off you go quietly.
Thank you Lord for bringing me here!
Shout to the world, to the skies, “I am healed!” Thank you dear Lord!
Those clouds are really great!
Clouds again, I know. I just can’t help but take pictures of them.
The colors of these leaves are so alive!
After meditating at the top with Jesus, it’s time to go down now.
Careful with those steps…
A view from the top going down…
Oh well, those clouds again.
Yes, my mother has landed safely.
Take a look at the Filipino depiction of Pieta.
You may light candles for your prayers.
Here’s some of the places that you can go around the place.
This way to the church. Do you notice the flooring?
If you happen to look closely, those are handwritten thanksgiving messages…
and sometimes you can leave your handprints and footprints.
After going from the top of the shrine, you may attend the healing mass thereafter.
You may silently say your prayers before the mass begins…
and even take a picture of a little creature who wants to stay as well.
This is the Kamay ni Hesus Healing Church.
and this is Fr. Faller during the healing mass.
After the mass, you may now choose from these restaurants to find something to eat.
You may also want to buy gifts and souvenirs for your loved ones.
Then you would notice that time flew so fast and you’re already going home now.
Thanks for taking your time to have a look at this wonderful place. I hope you’d get to visit the Kamay ni Hesus Shrine if ever you’d get the chance.
Take care everyone!
Have a good life!
