Lady of Lourdes: The 252 Steps

These are the 252 steps in the Lady of Lourdes Grotto in Baguio; the van that we rented took a short cut so we really did not start going up from the very first step. But even so, we still did not went up there, with my youngest daughter who keeps on complaining that she is already tired, how can I get up there.

The pilgrims brave to get to the shrine of the Lady of Lourdes of Grotto, they are offering prayers, sacrifices and devotion.


And since we were not able to reach to the top, we walked on the side and we saw this holy image, we offered a little prayer and took a picture with it.


And here’s me and my daughter, this is already on our way to our van, we just sat here for a moment to rest.

    Wow! You really count all the stairs in it. Someone told me that the Virgin Mary in the Lourdes Grotto is not the original one because they fixed the old one that creates miracle. Thanks for sharing this information.
