PROPOSED STATUE OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
MOTHER OF THE POOR AT MONTEMARIA BATANGAS
The architectural plan was painstakingly drafted by RD Ragojos Architectural Design Group based on a detailed description of a vision given to Fr. Fernando Suarez in one of his dreams. In this vivid dream it was revealed to Fr. Suarez that this pilgrimage site is meant to serve as an apostolic and evangelization center for pilgrims wanting to experience a deeper relationship with God through the intercession of Our Beloved Mary, Mother of the Poor.
ORATORY OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
It also includes retreat houses that will serve as a way station for pilgrims, complete with board and lodging facilities, souvenir shops, a conference center, and an international healing center for the poor.
MONTEMARIA is a haven for pilgrims and not only a place of prayer, but also a fervent prayer in itself, and an oratory dedicated to Mary, Mother of the Poor, a sacred sanctuary of pilgrims and devotees to renew their love for Jesus Christ and His Blessed Mother. It is a secure refuge where the tired soul withdraws to find peace and solace, and thereby discover how Mary comes to the aid of those in need of strength and consolation, the poor in society and the poor in spirit.
