The Catholic Church is very unique. I like it very much and feel very good.
I really didn't expect what was waiting for me in the church because it didn't look so grand from the outside. It is very small, hidden there silently along the famous Mendiola Street. When students protested against the Marcos dictatorship, we were in trouble. It has a lovely statuette on the side of the church, and the small metal door is equipped with stained glass, which is unexpected. Inside, our eyes are attracted by the beautiful ceiling paintings and many typical arches of churches built in the 1800s. The altar is small, and the statue of the baby Jesus is also small (Sto. Nino de Praga, patron of the church I attended in Antipolo). But they are both beautiful. Every place we turned around had some beautiful artistic effects, including pillars, podiums, and even the floor. Yes, everything helps to make this place peaceful and makes you want to linger, yes, but before returning to the chaos outside of Manila, you have to be quiet for a while. We just love this church!
