A Testimony of God’s Miracles
Pueblo de Panay Township is also host to a religious landmark – the 132-foot high statue of the “Blessing Jesus Christ” in Roxas City, Capiz! To date, it is the 4th tallest Jesus Christ statue in the world, the tallest in Asia.
Construction of the image began in the last quarter of 2011 and was completed on January 5, 2015. His Excellency Archbishop Jose Advincula, D.D. blessed the image on June 12, 2015, during the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, with co-celebrants Parish Priest Rev. Fr. Eugenio Caldeo, Jr. and guest priests.
It is an offshoot of the developer’s faith and gratitude to the Son of God – Jesus Christ – for the many miracles that God has showered on their family, and on Filipinos, in general. As such, places of worship such as this shrine, chapels, and gardens shall continually serve as testimony of how God’s love continues to inspire Filipinos in their life, amidst the challenges of the times.
