Kamay Ni Hesus Shrine Lucban Reviews
A Visit That Is Worth Remembering Jul 08, 2013
I've known Kamay Ni Hesus Shrine in Lucban, Quezon (Philippines) long time ago, have heard so many stories about it, but pretty sad that we've been there only a couple of months ago, and that was last November 2012. During our previous homeconing to the Philippines two years ago, me and my wife had already planned for it but it was Holy Week then and the place was so crowded and full of pilgrims. Though that was the best time to visit the place, we decided to have it on November. Thank God, we did it with flying colors.
Kamay ni Hesus is not just an ordinary shrine but is a healing center as well.It is not just a simple site for religious field trip but also emerging as a place for tourism nowadays. The place became well known because of the healing sessions done by Rev. Father Joey Faller, a well gifted Filipino healing priest who receives not only local recognitions but international appreciation as well. There is a church where the healing mas was heard every Wednesday and Saturday at 9:30 am (as announced during our visit there).
One of the reasons to visit this place is the climbing of the hundred steps (more or less 300) from the front of the church to the top of the hill where a giant statue of the "Ascending Christ" was erected. The 50-ft. statue is really a reward atop the mountain. And by the way, there are lots of half-size statues depicting the "The Way of the Cross" that greet you along the way as you ascend the hill.
On the other side of the terrain is another smaller hill that showcases another story. This hill is now depicting the "Mysteries of the Holy Rosary" with the huge statue of "Mama Mary" on the top. All those big statues are truly fascinating and really interesting to look for.
The boat-shape "Ark of Noah" is another interesting structure to pose for a picture.
The small fish pond, the wishing well, the manicured garden, the well organized playground refresh your senses.
The kiosks, the snack bars, the sheds and huts compliment your light meals.
And if you want some tokens of your visit, plenty of souvenir shops are just around the corner.
