A replica of the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes in France: A favorite church during Holy Week
- ssesha, CNN iReport producer
Every year during Holy Week, thousands of Catholics visit the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes in Bulacan.
The Shrine is a replica of the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes in France. It was built by a Catholic Filipino who had a cancer, and was cured by faith in Our Lady of Lourdes in France.
Below the Shrine is a spring that is believed to be miraculous and can cure illnesses.
The Shrine is not only popular because of its testimonies of healing from miraculous spring, but it’s a unique and beautiful Shrine that attracts Catholics to spend their faith during Holy Week.
