Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto in San Jose del Monte Bulacan is one of the famous religious place that the people want to visit. Based on my research the shrine was project of religious couple, Horacio A Guanzon and Anita Guidote-Guanzon. And it was an act of thanks giving for Anita, having been cured miraculously of cancer.
In Calvary Hill has a 14 stations of the cross that portray the agony of Jesus Christ. This place was the existing attraction of this grotto shrine. And behind the grotto church and basilica is a spring that is said that the miraculously water brings hope to those who are physically and mentally sick.
Every year we go there specially during holy week with my family. San Jose del Monte Bulacan was our hometown. And I'm really sad because my grandmother who lived in Bulacan died 2 years ago. I remember every year that we went home in Bulacan was just only to visit her. Our last bonding was when I organized a swimming party (public) just for her belated birthday and that was the last time I saw her.
It really makes me cry right now when I'm doing this article. I remember her face, her laugh, her mood, her voice that cause too much noise I really miss my lola Lina. 😭
I hope you enjoyed this article.
Thankyou and have a good day!
