Overview

Every Filipino Catholic knows the image of the Virgin Mary enshrined in this church of the Redemptorist Order. Known as Our Lady of Perpetual Help, the Byzantine-like icon is the object of profound devotion every Wednesday, drawing thousands of supplicants from all walks of life. Stalls around the church do a thriving trade selling candles, rosaries, novenas and replicas of the icon, as well as food for the hungry. The teeming crowds snarl traffic for miles around; a nightmare that ordinary motorists would be well advised to avoid.
