What draws thousands of devotees to the National Shrine of Our Mother of Perpetual Help in Baclaran

 

It is nearly impossible to explain the deep mystery of what lies beneath every heart of the devotee that keeps them going to our Mother of Perpetual Help every Wednesday. Evidently, the love of God and the intercession of Our Mother of Perpetual is truly experienced by the devotees, in spite of all the pains and struggles they go through in life.

 

But if there is one clear reason for the thousands of devotees who flock to Baclaran it is the special Marian piety of the Filipino People.

 

Devotion to Mary is deeply embedded in Filipino culture.  There is a phrase In Spanish, about the Philippines being "pueblo amante de Maria" - a people in love with Mary (bayang sumisinta kay Maria). Baclaran is the quintessential expression of this.  What Baclaran is now, is because of the Filipino deep devotion to Mary.  Indeed, If Filipinos are sent on mission throughout the world, our special gift in mission will be our love of Our blessed Lady.
