Kamay ni Jesus or Hand of Jesus

In Kamay ni Jesus I feel a great sense of Spiritual vibe. The place was so beautiful and organized in showing us how How JESUS give up his life to save us. It's a great place for children to learn the station of the cross and allowing all our religious upbringing to be rekindled and valued. The place was a magnificent view of religious facts and a very solemn one.

Ang Kamay ni Hesus or Hands of Jesus is one of the top Lenten destinations today here in the Philippines. Last April my husband and I together with our God Parents  came over to visit this place.  Here you can find the largest life-sized image of Jesus Christ on top of a mountain with his hand open wide.

Hundreds of thousands of people flock each year especially in Lenten Seasons during Good Friday and Easter Sunday to attend the mass and take the 300 steps of  the 14 stations of the cross and hills of holy rosary  to the holy mountain in Lucban, Quezon until you reach the top and finishes the station of the cross.  One of  the century old religious tradition by Filipinos are what we call Bisita Iglesia or Visiting Churches.We were very excited to visit this amazing place. One reason is that we wanted to pray and ask our Heavenly Father to bless us with a child of our own. It is one amazing healing place and rosary hill which we took the 300  steps until we reach the top of the mountain. Out of our amazement we got tongue tied and wasn't able to pray the rosary or the station of the cross. But as we saw each statues of the station of the cross we try to pray our own personal prayers and attended the mass after.

One of the best things in life is meeting people who value you as a whole person and accepted you to be a part of their life. Me and my husband are so fortunate to have God Parents who considers us their own children. Though being away from our family made us sad, we are very bless to have a very kind hearted God Parents. We spent four great days with them; they opened their hearts and home to us as a part of their own family. We have learned a lot on valuing our family and good traditions had been passed to us that for sure well make us a better individual. These pictures are taken from Victoria, Laguna all the way to all the towns we pass by going to Lucban, Quezon to visit Kamay ni jesus Shrine. Thanks to Ninang Emy and Ninong Doming for welcoming us to their family. ;

 Above right is the picture of the whole town and the church for approximately150-200 steps above sea level.. On the left picture is the construction of Noah's Arch a new addition to the sanctuary.

 We ate our lunch in the Japanese Garden funny but this garden in reality is a cemetery made for the Japanese soldiers who died last world war II. It was a beautiful garden embodied with green luscious trees, a peaceful sanctuary and a breath of fresh air.

 Over looking almost the whole Quezon Province. It was pure silence, serene and a beautiful place. My god father said we were on the top of the mountain of Quezon and we can see the roads we traveled to get here.

With this little adventure we also have realized that Our Country has a wonderful and undeniable scenic views. If we all have the time and effort to recognized this beauty we would be able to appreciate and be more proud of our country.

Kuya Mel, thank you for visiting and following my sanctuary of peace. I really appreciate and wholeheartedly thank you for the prayer you bestowed on us. It brings me so much hope and faith to know that others are also praying for us. I know that through constant prayer and as more people pray for other people's behalf it would be heard soon; twice would be the blessing to the one who took time to pray unselfishly. God Bless you twice fold. ;)
