Our Mother of Perpetual Help in Baclaran church

Statue of Mary returns to Baclaran Church

The statue of Our Mother of Perpetual Help returned to Baclaran Church after undergoing a three-month restoration.

According to a CBCP News post, the occasion was witnessed by thousands of devotees especially because Wednesday is considered “Baclaran Day,” when the faithful flock to the church in greater numbers than on other days.

Redemptorist Fr. Victorino Cueto, Rector of the National Shrine of Our Mother of Perpetual Help, said the occasion was also “symbolic.”

“It allowed Our Mother to come down from the high altar and be closer to all her devotee-missionaries,” he said.

The statue was brought down on Sept. 5 for the renovation of the altar.

It was only the third time that the statue was removed from the church’s altar. The first time was during World War II for safekeeping, then in 1992 when the image underwent restoration.

The national shrine has been a center of Marian devotion over the last 70 years.
