OUR LADY OF PEÑAFRANCIA SHRINE & PARISH
Peñafrancia Avenue, Naga City
The annual Peñafrancia Festivities make us return to the roots of our devotion to our Lady of Peñafrancia. The theme of this year’s festivities in honor of the Divino Rostro and our Lady of Peñafrancia allows us to go beyond the surface of our devotion and aim at a deeper experience of faith through the traditional devotional practices. True devotion to Ina leads us to a genuine faith in Jesus Christ who continues to show us his Divino Rostro, his countenance of love in all the stages of our faith’s journey.
Many pilgrims have returned to the Peñafrancia Church, the ancestral house of devotion, to thank Ina for the blessings they received from God through her. Last year, a woman who was told that she had a tumor in her lungs joined a group of pilgrims and visited the Peñafrancia Church in Naga City hoping that God would give her the gift of healing through Ina. When she went back to her place for series of medical examination, the doctors did not find any trace of the tumor. There are many other stories of faith experiences through the powerful intercession of Ina that edify us and make us even more firm in out commitment to Jesus Christ as Catholic Christians.
We ask for genuine and deeper experience of faith through our devotion to our Lady of Peñafrancia.
VIVA LA VIRGEN! VILA El DIVINO ROSTRO!
