BASILICA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION

M.H. Del Pilar, Batangas City

Basilica of the Immaculate Conception is a minor basilica in Batangas City. It was made an independent parish in 1614 under the advocation of the Immaculate Conception. The paintings were restored by Rex Papasin, a Batangueño artist. The former Father Provincial, Fr. Pedro Cuesta, demolished the old church which he found too small for the increasing population of the town and started the construction of the new one on the same site in 1851. He also built the strong fence of the atrium to enclose the church and convent. The church was damaged by earthquake in 1863 and repaired and reinforced with walls and buttresses. The convent built in 1693, of reef stone and huge molave post withstood all the earthquakes until Fr. MelchorFernández constructed a new one in 1792. It was later used as a school building by the Saint Bridget College. Later on the second floor of the convent was demolished and was converted into a parish pastoral hall.

01 stationFirst Station: Jesus is condemned to death

Jesus, you stand all alone before Pilate. Nobody speaks up for you. Nobody helps defend you. You devoted your entire life to helping others, listening to the smallest ones, caring for those who were ignored by others. They don't seem to remember that as they prepare to put you to death.

Leader: We adore Thee, O Christ, and bless Thee.

All: Because by Thy holy cross Thou hast redeemed the world.Jesus, you stand all alone before Pilate. Nobody speaks up for you. Nobody helps defend you. You devoted your entire life to helping others, listening to the smallest ones, caring for those who were ignored by others. They don't seem to remember that as they prepare to put you to death.

As a child, sometimes I feel alone. Sometimes I feel that others don't stand up for me and defend me when I am afraid. Sometimes I don't feel like I am treated fairly, especially if I am scolded or corrected.

As an adult, sometimes I feel abandoned and afraid as well. Sometimes I too, feel like I am treated unfairly or blamed for things unfairly. I have a hard time when people criticize me at home or at work.

Help me be grateful for what you did for me. Help me to accept criticism and unfairness as you did, and not complain. Help me pray for those who have hurt me.

My Jesus, often have I signed the death warrant by my sins; save me by Thy death from that eternal death which I have so often deserved.

Our Father.... Hail Mary.... Glory Be to the Father....

As a child, sometimes I start to do something, but then get tired of it. I hurry to get finished and sometimes don't do my work well. Sometimes I don't pay attention to what I should be doing. When things get hard for me, sometimes I give up.

As an adult, I sometimes put things off. I give up too easily, and sometimes don't do my work as well as I know I can.

My Jesus, the heavy burden of my sins is on Thee, and bears Thee down beneath the cross. I loathe them, I detest them; I call on Thee to pardon them; may Thy grace aid me never more to commit them.

She can't make the hurting stop, but it helps to see that she is on your side, that she is suffering with you. She does understand and care.

As a child, sometimes I feel like too many things are going on. Sometimes other kids pick on me and call me names. I need to look around me for a friendly face, and for the help I need. I need to share my troubles with those who truly care about me.

As an adult I sometimes feel overwhelmed by many things. Life is so competitive, and I worry so much about my future and those who have some control over it. I need to remember that being an adult does not mean having to solve every problem all by myself. I need to look around me for a friendly face, for the help I need.

Jesus most suffering, Mary Mother most sorrowful, if, by my sins, I caused you pain and anguish in the past, by God's assisting grace it shall be so no more; rather be you my love henceforth till death.

 05 stationFifth Station: Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus to carry his cross

Jesus, the soldiers are becoming impatient. This is taking longer than they wanted it to. They are afraid you won't make it to the hill where you will be crucified.

As a child, sometimes I know someone could use a little help and understanding. They may be picked on or teased by others, or just sad or lonely. Sometimes I feel bad that others don't step in to help, but I don't help either.

As an adult, I notice the needs around me. Sometimes my own family members crave my attention, and I don't even seem to notice. Sometimes a co-worker, friend, or family member could use help or understanding, but I don't reach out to help lest I be criticized, or that they demand more of me than I'd like to give.

My tender Jesus, Who didst deign to print Thy sacred face upon the cloth with which Veronica wiped the sweat from off Thy brow, print in my soul deep, I pray Thee, the lasting memory of Thy bitter pains.

SanIsidro

PARISH OF SAN ISIDRO LABRADOR

Cuenca, Batangas

The predominant elements are Gothis, even if executed in a somewhat primitive rendition. The pointed arches, flying buttresses and the rose window in the center of the prediment, combined with the flame-like windows, certainly make for a strong Gothic impression. The four rectangular pilasters rise up, dividing the facade into three sections, and end in sharp-points finials, Dent-like motifs run along the eaves of the pediment on the cornices of the bell tower. The simple Gothic facade, however, would look more genuine if the stucco and the name of San Isidro were chipped off.

07 stationSeventh Station: Jesus falls the second time

This is the second time you have fallen on the road. As the cross grows heavier and heavier it becomes more difficult to get up. But you continue to struggle and try until you're up and walking again. You don't give up.

As a child, sometimes things get me down. Others seem to find things easier to do or to learn. Each time I fail, I find it harder to keep trying.

As an adult, sometimes I think I should know more than I do. I become impatient with myself and find it hard to believe in myself when I fail. It is easy to despair over small things, and sometimes I do.

Help me when things seem difficult for me. Even when it's hard, help me get up and keep trying as you did. Help me do my best without comparing myself with others.

My Jesus, often have I sinned and often, by sin, beaten Thee to the ground beneath the cross. Help me to use the efficacious means of grace that I may never fall again.

Later on the original picture was seem to be imprinted to the wood which was up to now is in the Parish church of Ilijan. The image was frequently visited by many people and as a customary belief put the image in the new boats and ships before sailing.  Many could attest that by doing the “Pagpapasakay o Pagpapapoon” save them from disaster.  The laminated image of the Patron Saint could be seen in every house of the devotees in the belief that they will be guided and protected by St. Michael the Archangel.

There are two occasions being celebrated in the Parish of Ilijan, one is on September 29 which is the feast day of St. Michael the Archangel and the other one is on May 8, which was declared by the Catholic Church as the special day because it was the day when the apparition was seen during the 6th century.  This May 8, 2021, the Parish will be celebrating the 80th year the church was established.

As a child, sometimes I hurt others. Sometimes I join with friends and decide not to like another. We gang up against another and cause them hurt and pain. Sometimes I say or do hurtful things to my brothers and sisters. I can wonder what they'd think about themselves if they believed everything I told them about themselves.

As and adult, sometimes I discriminate against others. Even without thinking, I judge others because of their color, intelligence, income level or name. I forget that I am to live as a brother or sister to all people. Sometimes I use harsh words when I speak to my children and family members. I can find it easy to look for something that isn't very important and make it very important.

Help me look again at the people around me. Help me see the hurt and pain I have caused in others. Be with me to help me make amends for the harm I have done.

My Jesus, by Thine agony when the cruel nails pierced Thy tender hands and feet and fixed them to the cross, make me crucify my flesh by Christian penance.

My Jesus, three hours didst Thou hang in agony, and then die for me; let me die before I sin, and if I live, live for Thy love and faithful service.

Our Father.... Hail Mary.... Glory be to the Father....

Leader: Jesus Christ Crucified.

All: Have mercy on Us.

Leader: May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, Rest in peace.

 All: Amen.

 SAN ISIDRO LABRADOR PARISH CHURCH

San Isidro Batangas City

In 1960, Msgr. Carlos Garcia, parish priest of Immaculate Concepcion Parish, Batangas City dreamt a chapel to be built in Barangay San Isidro for fiesta masses. After 20years, Fr. ChitolAndal and Fr. Jose Ilagan, assistant priest, spearheaded the construction of the church through “bayanihan” and scheduled regular Sunday Masses. A parish was proposed and was willingly accepted by the people. In September 29, 1989, His Excellency, Archbishop Mariano F. Gaviola D.D. blessed and dedicated the church to San Isidro Labrador, patron saint of the newly created parish and Rev. Fr. DioscoroVillasis was appointed the first Parish Priest. Every pastor assigned in the parish contributed to the spiritual development and physical improvement. Expansion was made by Rev. Fr. Jose Ma. Loyola Cumagun, the façade was beautifully renovated by Rev. Fr. Romulo Dolor and concreting the Patio and shading the surrounding with trees were made by Rev. Fr. PablitoMalibiran. In February 8, 2017 during the incumbency of Rev. Fr. Oscar Larry F. Famarin, a total renovation of the church was started thru the help of the newly created Finance Council and the support of the Parish Pastoral Committee and the nineteen barangays.

13 station Thirteenth Station: The body of Jesus is taken down from the cross

Jesus, how brutally you were put to death. How gently you are taken from the cross. Your suffering and pain are ended, and you are put in the lap of your mother. The dirt and blood are wiped away. You are treated with love.

Leader: We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you.

All: Because by your holy cross You have redeemed the world.

Jesus, how brutally you were put to death. How gently you are taken from the cross. Your suffering and pain are ended, and you are put in the lap of your mother. The dirt and blood are wiped away. You are treated with love.

As a child, sometimes I treat others better when they're sad or in pain. When somebody dies, I become very gentle and kind. I notice the good and kind things people say about those who have died.

As an adult, I seem to be kinder when someone dies. If only I could learn to see the good things about them while they were alive. If only I would tell those around me how much I love them, while I still have the opportunity to do so.

Help me look for the good in those around me, especially those I love the most. Help me live this day as if it were the last. Help me become a more gentle and loving person through my greater appreciation for those around me.

O Mary, Mother most sorrowful, the sword of grief pierced thy soul when thou didst see Jesus lying lifeless on thy bosom; obtain for me hatred of sin because sin slew thy Son and wounded thine own heart, and grace to live a Christian life and save my soul.

Our Father.... Hail Mary.... Glory be to the Father....

Leader: Jesus Christ Crucified.

HolyTrinity

MOST HOLY TRINITY PARISH

Pallocan West, Batangas City

 

Established on November 12, 2007, this is the youngest of the six parishes born out of the Parish of the Immaculate Conception in Batangas City. It is in the middle of a new commercial district, in Pallocan West of Batangas City. Its impressively built new church stands on a 6,000-square-meter donated site accessible to the villages in the eastern part of the city. Construction of the church and its adjacent structures- Kapilya ng Liwanag (Chapel of Light), GusalingPulungan ng Parokya (Parish Meeting Hall), Kapilya ng mga Santo at mga Banal (Chapel of the Saints and the Blessed), and Kapilya ng SantissimoSakramento (Chapel of the Holy Sacrament) – were completed in less than two years. Most importantly, these constructions became possible through the aid of benefactors and the thousands of parishioners from the different villages of the Parish of the Most Holy Trinity. In particular, the Pastor family donated the land and helped with the construction of the church.

14 stationFourteenth Station: Jesus is laid in the tomb

Jesus, your body is prepared for burial. Joseph gave you his own tomb. He laid your body there and rolled a large stone in front of it, then went home. What a sad day it has been for so many people.

Leader: We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you.

All: Because by your holy cross You have redeemed the world.

Jesus, your body is prepared for burial. Joseph gave you his own tomb. He laid your body there and rolled a large stone in front of it, then went home. What a sad day it has been for so many people.

As a child, sometimes I try to keep everything for myself. I find it hard to share my things with my brothers or sisters and with my friends.

As an adult, I can be selfish too. I can accumulate things and keep them for myself. I try to make sure I have what I want before I share what I have with anybody else.

Help me think of Joseph of Arimathea, who risked his own life as he accepted Jesus' body for burial. Help me think of how Joseph loved Jesus so much that he gave him his own tomb.

My Jesus, beside Thy body in the tomb I, too, would lie dead; but if I live, let it be for Thee, so as one day to enjoy with Thee in heaven the fruits of Thy passion and Thy bitter death.

Our Father.... Hail Mary.... Glory be to the Father....

Leader: Jesus Christ Crucified.

All: have mercy on Us.

Third Station: Jesus falls the first time

Jesus, the cross you have been carrying is very heavy. You are becoming weak and almost ready to faint, and you fall down. Nobody seems to want to help you. The soldiers are interested in getting home, so they yell at you and try to get you up and moving again.

Jesus, the cross you have been carrying is very heavy. You are becoming weak and almost ready to faint, and you fall down. Nobody seems to want to help you. The soldiers are interested in getting home, so they yell at you and try to get you up and moving again.

As a child, sometimes I start to do something, but then get tired of it. I hurry to get finished and sometimes don't do my work well. Sometimes I don't pay attention to what I should be doing. When things get hard for me, sometimes I give up.

As an adult, I sometimes put things off. I give up too easily, and sometimes don't do my work as well as I know I can.

My Jesus, the heavy burden of my sins is on Thee, and bears Thee down beneath the cross. I loathe them, I detest them; I call on Thee to pardon them; may Thy grace aid me never more to commit them.

Our Father.... Hail Mary.... Glory Be to the Father....

Leader: Jesus Christ Crucified.

All: Have mercy on Us.
