A family trip to the Divine Mercy Shrine

On July 17th, the Philippine government declared a one day holiday in celebration of Eid Al Fitir. We take this chance to go for a road trip and travel to beautiful places in Mindanao. We left Surigao City at 4 o’clock in the morning and drive to El Salvador in Misamis Oriental to visit the Divine Mercy Shrine.

This holy ground that was once a vision appeared among the devotees of The Divine Mercy. In 2013, despite the lack of funds and manpower, the foundation was able to build the Divine Mercy Shrine with the help of people’s donation and charity services from all over the world. The 50ft statue of Jesus was erected on the 82-hectare Divine Mercy Hills located in El Salvador, Misamis Oriental.

People are allowed to pray and visit the heart of Jesus by taking the 30 feet high stairs designed as the rays of His illuminated heart. When you are above, you can see the vastness of the sea and the richness of the mainland. This is how it appears in the vision because the love of Jesus for his people is immeasurable and bountiful.

Many miracles and healings happened here and the place is frequented by believers from all walks of life. As we descended from the stairs, I asked my son what was his prayer, and he wisely replied that “I thank God for all the things I received and I also asked forgiveness for all the mistakes I have made.”

Truly, our visit was worthy because we were able to attend the Holy Mass and made our prayers before the sacred heart of Jesus.

Here’s a video I made during our trip at the Divine Mercy Shrine.
