EDSA Shrine Sayaw Kulay Festival

EDSA Shrine

Dedicated to the Mother, Mary Queen of Peace,
EDSA Shrine stands as a Monument of Peace.

EDSA Revolution   gave birth to EDSA Shrine!

A Revolution!
Yes, indeed.
But a Peaceful People Power Revolution for it was
A Revolution of Faith, Hope and Love.

Formally consecrated to God and dedicated to the Mother
on December 15, 1989,
EDSA Shrine was first etched, given shape, built and inaugurated
in the hearts of millions of Filipinos
in that four fateful days of February 1986.

They came to EDSA
not with high powered guns and artilleries,
yet equipped with “power from above”


And they won the battle!!!

Who will not be moved and conquered
by the “Revolution of Faith”
where God is its armor and shield?
Who will not see light
with the “Revolution of Hope”
where nightfall is as clear as dawn?
Who will not be captivated and consumed
by the “Revolution of Love”
where springs of  life-giving water flow  in abundance?
