Lord God, bless this Filipino Shrine at The Grotto, and bless all who come here in search of peace, prayer, and the beauty of nature.
Give us insight as we walk the garden paths and as we pray and reflect at this Dambana. May your loving presence inspire our minds and hearts, so that we may go forth from here renewed and refreshed in mind, body, and soul.
Loving God, bless this image of Mary, represented as Our Lady of Dambana. May we see Mary as a model of faith that we are called to imitate, and may the Mother of Jesus be a source of comfort to each one of us.
Loving Creator, you sent your only son to be savior of all. Jesus came into the world as a helpless child; may this image of the Santo Niño remind us that God became fully human to share his love and bring us salvation.
Lord God, we honor your faithful servant San Lorenzo Ruiz and his companion martyrs. As the first canonized Filipino Saint, San Lorenzo inspires us with his unwavering faith and tremendous courage, even to his death. May the example of his life and death lead us to live lives of faithful service.
Gracious God, you call us to love, you call us to help one another. We thank you for this Dambana at The Grotto. May it be a light of faith and a symbol of the universality of your Church.
