Default Pilgrimage to REGINA ROSARII, Our Lady on top of the hill


HI people, I had a very uplifting experience today, Sunday, my lovely wife convinced me to go to Sampalok, Tanay Rizal and visit a shrine there of mama MARY and in the process hear mass also there under the rows and rows of mahogany trees. I was told that there is a shrine there of the virgin Mary on top of a hill and the image of the virgin Mary is so huge, about 7 floors in height or 72 feet tall starting from the base and that when one enters the base, its like daw na you are entering her very belly to pray and contemplate inside and then there off we went this morning and WOW when we got there, there were so many people coming from different parts of Luzon and the statue of the Virgin Mary was really so huge.

Let me share with you some pics that I took of the place and the great feelings that I have felt and received, its like you are in the garden of mama MARY.

By the way the place of shrine is 13.5 hectares and are runned by the DOMINICAN SISTERS. OK, here are the pics of the shrine and its landscapings.





The area where the mass was celebrated was under the canopy of rows and rows of Mahogany trees.




ONE will have to pass by a 20 ft long suspension bridge to reach the mass site.







We were hearing mass and communing with nature with all these mahogany trees around us.

And took some more pics.




These are the current project of the DOMINICAN SISTERS, the building of these two structure thru donations and sponsorship.




That's the huge kubo kubo where we had lunch and all the food were organically grown by the sisters and per complete meal costs 100 php with unlimited rice. No meat is allowed to be eaten inside, all must be veggies.







The way to the mass site is lined up of colorfull plants and bromeliads. I think these kubols are rented out to visitors or pilgrimage for the day.

More pics to show.




Side view of the huge statue.




Here is the underside or large base of the statue,or as if the statue is standing on a very large rock, when one reaches the base, a brother and a sister ( a nun ) will guide you and give some sort of little lecture on what must be done before entering the shrine and the some sort of belly of the statue for some prayers and contemplation.







On these two pics I took a long shot and a close up shot oF the Virgin Mary carrying Baby Jesus when we stepped out already of the prayer room. This area is some sort of the 2nd floor of a building. The shots were taken ala worm's eye view.

Some more pics to show.










After coming out of the prayer room and onto the viewing deck or balcony, these are the views that one will see, the great span of Mahogany plantation and mountain ranges, AWESOME!!!!!




This statue of saint JOSEPH, the carpenter , a slightly big and is located afar perpendicularly to the statue of the Virgin Mary waving as if he is already approaching and coming home from work.




My experience here was something very different and very awesome, very enlightening and very humbling, the place is very beautiful but the construction is still going on.

I urge the PHM community, if you have time one SUNDAY, why not visit this shrine and experience a different high in communing with mother nature and find some time to contemplate in this very sacred place. I AM INVITING YOU ALL, I know you won't regret it, bring your wife and children, other members of your family and also friends and experience the PRAYER for HEALING.

THANKS A LOT.

This is a very nice place Rosy, di ko to nakita ah when i went to Paete. I love communing with nature too thats why I like going to Batangas and other country sides whenever I can.

Can you PM me the mass schedules so that i can plan to hear mass with my family one Sunday there? (though not this coming sunday coz I already scheduled a visit to Manaoag).


TIA.

Hello Sir Rosy! Ang ganda ng place and ang laki ng statue. The only place we go ay sa Antipolo Church during summer. Kaya lang its too crowded and hard to find a decent parking space. I've never been to that part of Rizal. From Antipolo Church how long must I travel to get there?

@ Armand,

Bro their schedule of mass is every SUNDAY at 11:00 am exactly up to a little past 12 pm because after the formal mass celebration people would line up in front for some healing prayer by a senior nun there at may pag hahaplos ng scented oil sa head, shoulders and arms and hands. If you plan to visit the place be there by 10 or 10:30 am para hindi ma late sa misa.

Bro you won't regret visiting the place.


@ willy1467,

Bro it will only take you one hour more or less from Antipolo up to the shrine in Sampaloc, Tanay
of leisurely driving. Going there consider it also as sight seeing experience.

When you reach a cross road in Sampaloc, you turn right and just follow the signs leading to the shrine. You will pass by Erap's property ( JE camping site ) and Camp Capinpin.

Bro bring the whole family and let then commune with nature, and also parking is not a problem in that place.
