Random Shots Friday: National Shrine of Divine Mercy of Marilao

"I love you when you bow in your mosque,
kneel in your temple, pray in your church.
For you and I are sons of one religion,
and it is the spirit."
Khalil Gibran

National Shrine of Divine Mercy

It has been months since the last time we visited this particular area in this place. We only used to visit the lower area where Sunday mass is held.


Since it was Mommy’s day, we decided to pass here before heading to SM City Marilao. I was surprised because there is a big change in the interior design of the Shrine.

"Baseball is like church.
Many attend few understand."
Leo Durocher

Altar of National Shrine of the Divine Mercy

There were already paintings or murals on the ceiling of the church. The dome part of the altar is painted with “The Last Supper” while the ceiling is painted with some angels.

"Prayer is a strong wall and fortress of the church;
it is a goodly Christian weapon."
Martin Luther

Flower Power Tuesday: Orange and Violets

“People deal too much with the negative,
with what is wrong.
Why not try and see positive things,
to just touch those things and make them bloom?”
Nhat Hanh
Birds of Paradise


“If your heart is a volcano, how shall you expect flowers to bloom?”
Khalil Gibran

Violet Orchids

“It's so clear that you have to cherish everyone.
I think that's what I get from these older black women,
that every soul is to be cherished,
that every flower Is to bloom.”
Alice Walker


Violet Orchids

I took these shots in a resort where one of our colleagues' wedding was held. The colors of the flowers are very vibrant and attractive. It is very relaxing looking at these flowers blooming.
