Marian pilgrimage in the Philippines

Devotion to Jesus and the Mother of God on display around Manila as sacred images are displayed to the public.

Devotions to the Virgin Mary as mother of God are portrayed in a unique exhibit of life size images from different parts of the National Capital Region (NCR) which is on here in Manila until the 28th.

As part of the church-run Radio Veritas' celebration of the Marian season, the late Jaime Cardinal Sin's treasured image of Our Lady of Miraculous Medal were shown. Rosaries blessed by Manila Archbishop Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales were given to the first 1, 000 pilgrims.

More than a hundred images of Jesus Christ and the saints from four major mysteries of the Holy rosary are on display.

Dubbed as "Marian Radio Pilgrimage," the Marian exhibit was conceptualized to encourage more people to pray the rosary "which has always been the call of Blessed Virgin Mary."

Father Anton Pascual, Radio Veritas president and Caritas Manila Executive Director said that proceeds from the event will benefit the recent typhoon "Milenyo" victims of the country

The exhibit also shows various Marian pilgrim images in the Philippines among them, Virgen Delos Remedios of the Archdiocese of San Fernando, Nuestra Sra De la Merced of Candaba, Pampagga, Nuestra Sra De Turumba of Pakil, Laguna, Birhen Sang Barangay of Bacolod and La Virgen De la Verdad, Justicia y Santidad (Our Lady of Truth, Justice and Holiness) among others.

Expected to grace the occasions are former President Cory Aquino, Mrs. Felicidad Tan Sy, former Ambassador Henrietta De Villa and Dra. Luz Espiritu.

The overall organizer of the exhibit is the Religious Affairs Department of Radio Veritas headed by Remie Dillena.
