The Divine Mercy Statue


Have you been to Cagayan de Oro City lately? If not then it’s time for you to visit the place because of this very beautiful and holy place specifically located in the place of Villanueva, Cagayan de Oro City. This is the gigantic statue of the Divine Mercy.
You can reach the place by riding a jeepney, which is 30-45 minutes ride from the city proper of Cagayan de Oro City and single a motorcycle or “habal-habal” to deliver you to the gate of the holy place.
I visited the place last April 2010 after our three days retreat at Betania Malasag, Cagayan de Or City. It was a great experienced being in that place because every person who were going to enter the place must wear decent attire like no short pants. But you can still enter the place because they have prepared red skirt to wear as you enter the place. And I was one of those who were able to wear the red skirt during our visit because I was wearing pedal or three-fourth pants together with my other officemate. That is why if you plan to visit the place, refrain from wearing short pants if you don’t like to wear the red skirt they provided.
The place was so amazing and holy because you can see the giant statue of the Divine Mercy surrounded by beautiful and blooming flowers. If given the chance I really wanted to visit the place again and I wanted to climb the statue through the stairways from the bottom to the heart of the statue.
If you have time try to visit the place
