A 30-foot image of “Mary, Regina Rosarii: Our Lady in the City” stands on top of the 5-Storey D’Regina Building at No. 70, Scout Fernandez, Barangay Laging Handa in Quezon City (easily accessible from Tomas Morato Avenue). It is claimed to be the biggest image, so far, built and dedicated to the Queen of the Most Holy Rosary. It is as huge as the one in Edsa Shrine but what makes it more interesting is that it rotates at 360-degrees every 6 A.M. and 9:15 P.M., everyday.
The Marian image, unveiled only last May 31, 2006, is made of fiberglass by the young and renowed Davao-based sculpture Jose ‘Joe’ Barcena, who have done several Marian images all over the country.
The Image is a proud testament to the growing community organized by the Congregation of Dominican Sisters of the Regina Rosarii (their center is called Regina Rosarii: Center for Contemplative Prayer) formally organized in May 2005 by five (5) nuns who originally were from the Congregation of Dominican Sisters of the Most Holy Rosary for some 10-20 years before they formed their own, to further expand their calling to people in need of prayers and contemplation in the bustling metropolis.
The Congregation has a radio program for prayer and counseling over the AM band (Radio Veritas 846; 10-11 A.M.) and they also do “cellular” counseling. Visiting time at their center is from 4-6:30 P.M. everyday. They allow private visitation upon prior arrangement. For special visiting arrangement and contemplative prayers, you can call them at 372-53-27 or 0919-2694286. You may also visit their site for more information on how they can help you in your spiritual need. I heard they incorporate ancient Zen and Christian practice in their meditation/contemplation services. Interesting!
Let us all pray for a peaceful National Elections this year!!!
