Also known as Via Dolorosa Grotto, Kamay ni Hesus Shrine was built under the initiative of Fr. Joseph "Joey" Faller in 2003. He is known as a gifted healing priest. Due to Fr. Faller's healing masses, Kamay ni Hesus Shrine became one of the country's most visited healing centers.

One of the highlights of Kamay ni Hesus Shrine is the 50-foot statue of Christ with his arm wide open found on the top of a hill. This statue is often referred to as the Risen Christ or Ascending Christ. Pilgrims and tourists who want to get close to the statue have to walk up the 300-plus man-made concrete steps to do so. Along the way to the peak, one would see the life-size sculptures of the 14 Stations of the Cross. Once on the peak, one would also get a nice view of the hill's surrounding areas.

Don't worry this huge gathering only happens during the Holy Week

If I'm not mistaken that's Mt. Banahaw

Kamay ni Hesus Shrine is the last place that we visited during our Visita Iglesia in the province of Laguna and Quezon. During our visit, there were hundreds of pilgrims lined up trying to reach the peak of the hill so we decided not to go up the hill but just offer our prayers in the chapel at the foot of the hill. In that way, we would still accomplish our purpose of visiting churches.

I think this place is added to make Kamay ni Hesus Shrine an Instagram-ready place

  1. That is such a holy place. Jesus is a favourite hero for me. He suffered so much for all of us.

    1. Yes this place is a holy place perfect for pilgrimages.

  2. Paano PO pumunta Jan if galing PO akong cavite?

    1. Punta ka muna sa Alabang. Mula doon sakay ka ng bus papuntang Lucena. Sabihin mo sa konduktor na ibaba ka sa diversion road papuntang Lucban. Maraming jeep dun na babaybay ng rutang iyon sabihan mo nalang sila na ibaba ka sa Kamay ni Hesus.
