My article on heritage and national cultural treasure churches in Ilocos and Iloilo is out in today's issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
In it, I share a brief history of each church and took photos as well. It has always been my practice to say my intentions when I visit a church for the first time but I felt really blessed for having been able to pray before the Our Lady of Candles at Jaro Cathedral in Iloilo.
It is the only Marian image in the country to have been personally crowned by the now saint Pope John Paul II.
