FOREWORD

“… all generations will call me blessed”
-St Luke1:46-49 Canticle of Mary

The Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God and our Mother, is the realization of God the Father’s promise that the gates of heaven will be reopened because from her blessed womb the Son of God was incarnated, she has become the Mediatrix of all graces. The Philippines has been so blessed in the whole of Asia that it serves as the light to the nations on this part of the world, as it is the only Christian and Catholic country in the Far East. God loves us. He sent the Blessed Virgin Mary, Ina Poon Bato prior to the arrival of the Missionary Priests from Spain. Our forefathers bent their knees to her, asked for her intercession and offered their love at her foot. I am admonishing all the blessed or sealed sons and daughters of our Beloved Ingkong, God the Holy Spirit, and members of the Apostolic Catholic Church, and every Christian to be a devotee of Ina Poon Bato, the Patron Saint of the Philippines, for the conversion of sinners and the peace of the whole world. May God shower us with His abundance through her, Ina Poon Bato.

BRIEF HISTORY OF INA POON BATO
Before the arrival of the Spaniards in the Philippines, up on the mountains of Botolan, Zambales, in the island of Luzon, there was a well known and skilled hunter named Djadig who was a nomad and belonged to one of the tribal aborigines of the Filipinos, 3

To date. when there was a drought. Because of this. he went out to the forest to hunt for food. hanapin at dalhin mo ako sa inyo. Djadig heard a voice saying “Tumindig ka Djadig. The Spanish friars and soldiers who thought that they were the first Christians to set foot in the Philippines were so amazed and were thinking how this image of the Blessed Virgin Mary reached the Islands before their arrival. together with his three sons. as soon as they reached home. bring me to your home“). rain came and the mountain was restored to its being green like in spring and soon the abundance of deer and wild boar was noticed. they were astonished to find out that the statue is still whole with no stray marks and the dress is shining as gold. she took the wooden statue and tossed it on the furnace that led to a blazing fire in their home. still empty-handed.the Aetas. After smothering the blaze. He saw a very beautiful lady dressed in gold on top of a boulder (bato). He did bring the statue. calling her “Apo Apang” or “Little Queen”. When he got closer to the lady he found out that it was a statue made of shiny wood. “Dalhin mo ako sa inyo” (“Bring me to your place“). Thus. When the Spaniards came they heard of the story of the miraculous image. Immediately he stood up and looked around where the voice was coming from. Because of her fury. they decided to rest for a while beside the Pastac River. the aforementioned original Image is with the Aglipayan 4 . once again the voice said coming from the statue.” (“Stand up Djadig. the drought has ended. It was almost sunset. Suddenly. Djadig’s wife was so mad when she learned that they were not able to bring anything for food except for the wooden image. One day. They went up to the mountain and found the statue on top of a boulder (bato) on its original place and confirmed that it is an image of the Virgin Mother of God. The aborigines considered this statue to be the protectress of their tribe. they called this statue “Ina Poon Bato”. The Aetas afterwards enshrined the statue on top of the boulder (bato) where Djadig first found it.

I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all who shall recite the Rosary. She is appealing to all Christian families on all Her apparitions worldwide. in turn. Whoever shall faithfully serve me by the recitation of the Rosary shall receive signal graces. Blessed Alain. as the devotion to the “Theotokos” (Mother of God) intensified. for the atonement of sins.In the early days of the Christian Church. Besides “Rosary” from the Latin “Rosarium” we have “Chaplet”. “Garland”. and the unity of all families. 6 . Furthermore. This devotion was accorded the name “Rosary” from a vision of the Blessed Virgin that while a young man. The Rosary Crusade of Dominic was successful and the Albigenses were defeated. As a result. in the 12th century. The Blessed Virgin with the Angels. “The family that prays together stays together. The Rosary devotion was given to Saint Dominic by the Mother of God in the thirteenth century to overcome the heresy of the Albigensis. gathered them and weaves them into a crown and was placed on top of his head. Likewise. the “Our Father” was replaced by 150 Hail Mary’s. one of Her titles on her Litany. i. which is to recite 150 Our Fathers daily. the monks and other religious people recite 150 psalms daily.” THE FIFTEEN (15) PROMISES OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY TO CHRISTIANS WHO RECITE THE HOLY ROSARY 1. Problems arose when it was made public especially to those who could not read thereby prompting a new devotion.e. from the French “Chaplete”. devotion to the beads spread throughout the Christian world. Today. is another reason for the beads of prayers being called the Holy Rosary. on each utterance a rose issued from his lips. was reciting his “Ave Maria’s”. 2.
