Virgin Mary of Simala Cebu

Updated on April 25, 2016

The Virgin Mary of Simala Cebu City

The Virgin Mary of Simala is a favorite Spot for religious goers in Cebu because they have said that she is a true giver. It has been awhile when a lot of believers go there to be blessed. I have my faith and I believed in the Virgin Mary of Simala in Cebu.

The first time I came here, the place was solemn. Good place for meditating. The place will take you far, far away from the city but when you arrive there, it is all worth the ride and the time. Very solemn place to connect to the Lord above.

I am not forcing anybody to believe me but this is what I believe. I am a very religious person and superstitious at the same time. But I take into credit my belief because that is what makes me a strong and better person.

The Virgin Mary of Simala has captured the hearts of many believers because she has made many wishes come true.

I first came to her aid when I was about to take me board exam and was really anxious and pressured. Anxious because I am not sure whether I have all the knowledge that would let me pass the test and pressured because my parents are counting on me. If I do pass, then I will be the first licensed nurse in the family(besides my mother, of course) I did pressure myself too because I want them to be proud of me (like all children do)

I run to her comfort because they said she was a giver. I prayed hard and I gave a word that I would come back If I do.

True enough, SHE gave that to me. Maybe I was destined to be one to, here is my other story about being destined to be a nurse.

I came back as my word have said.

And I came back again. It became a ritual that every time I come to Cebu, I would visit here because I want to thank her for all that she has done to me. Faith does moves mountains and I thank her for giving me that.

Every 13th of the Month, the church of Virgin of Mary in Simala celebrates her doings. This a celebration that most people would come to as it was said that it was at this time that she cried and made givings.

Virgin Mary of Simala is celebrated every 13th of the Month.
It is at this time that most people would flock into her and ask for blessings. People would come in and offer flowers and candles in the hope that their wishes will come true.
It is a celebration that is celebrated every month in spite that her birthday is on September because they think that she deserves to have that honor, she deserved to be magnified.

I go to this place not on the 13th as there are many people that will go there. But I always make sure that I visit her. I take my time to go there, travel in a bus, ride a motorcycle and take my time to spend at least n hour while I am there.

They also have candles where you can light them. The place is magnificent and truly a good for Virgin Mary's place.
