LA NAVAL DE MANILA 2013
ORDER OF PROCESSION.
1. SAN LORENZO RUIZ DE MANILA.
The Filipino proto-martyr, Lorenzo was born in Binondo, Manila. As a young man, he became a member of the Rosary Confraternity. Implicated in a crime of unclear circumstances, he left his wife and children and set sail for Okinawa in 1636 together with other Dominican Missionaries. Arrested, they were brought to Nagasaki where they underwent hideous torments for their Christian faith, giving up their souls to God on September 28, 1637.
2. BEATA JUANA DE AZA.
The mother of St Dominic, she was beatified by Pope Leo XII in 1828. Devotion to her persisted through the centuries despite the poverty of records. The mother of three priests, one of whom died a death of heroic charity and two who were raised to the altars of the church, can safely be judged to have been not only a valiant woman but also a saintly one. Her picture, as that of any mother can be seen reflected in her sons.
3. BEATA MARGARITA DE CASTELO.
Born a dwarf, deformed and blind, Margaret was abandoned by her parents but found refuge in the homes of the poor. By her radiant charity, she became a source of hope and consolation for the poor, the outcast, the sick and the imprisoned, to whom she ministered tirelessly as a Lay Dominican. She is patroness of Pro-Life Philippines.
4. SANTO TOMAS KHUONG.
Thomas Khuong belonged to a noble family on Tonkin and could well be a son of a Mandarin. A Christian since childhood, he became a Priest and a Dominican Tertiary. He was imprisoned many times because of his faith. When he was in his😯’s in 1859, he was arrested again. The judge tried in vain to make him trample on the crucifix and invited him in vain to persuade his Christian followers to apostatize but he firmly replied, “TO REDEEM MANKIND, CHRIST VOLUNTARILY SUFFERED DEATH… I TOO, WANT TO GIVE LOVE FOR LOVE, SPILLING ALL MY BLOOD FOR HIM.” While he was genuflecting to adore the crucifix, his head was cut off, it was the 30th of January 1860.
5. SAN FRANCISCO DE CAPILLAS.
Francis was born in Baquerin de Campos, Palencia, Spain on August 14, 1607. He entered the Dominican Priory of St Paul of Valladolid. He arrived in Manila in February 1632, where he was ordained priest. In 1641, he attended the Provincial Chapter held in Manila and asked the new Provincial to send him to China. In 1642, he left for China with his friend, Fr Francis Diez. He went to the villages and town in Fogan and Funing converting huge numbers of Chinese. He was captured and remained incarcerated for two months. He dies on January 15, 1648. He was canonized by Blessed Pope John Paul II on October 1, 2000.
6. SAN VICENTE LIEM DELA PAZ.
The First Vietnamese Dominican, he was born in Tra’Lu in 1731. He received the Dominican habit in Manila and continued his studies at the Colegio de San Juan de Letran in Intramuros. Already a priest, he asked to return to his land to work among his people, he labored for 14 years until he was captured and martyred on November 7, 1773.
7. SANTA MAGDALENA DE NAGASAKI.
She was left on her own resources at the age of twenty two when her parents perished in the great persecution in Japan. She placed herself under the direction of a Dominican Father, Jordan of St Stephen, and received the habit as a Tertiary. At a public hearing presided over by the Mandarin, after her arrest and torture, she stood up and cried out her profession of faith. She was martyred in 1634.
8. SAN JUAN MACIAS.
A Cooperator Brother like St Martin, he was born in Ribera, Spain in 1585.

He is distinguished for his great devotion to the rosary and untiring supplications for the souls in purgatory.

21. SANTO TOMAS DE AQUINO.
This great Dominican teacher lived only for 49 years from 1225 – 1274. But he traveled much, from his birthplace at Aquino in central Italy to Cologne, to Paris, to Rome and to the monastery near Naples where he died. Thomas prayed much and dedicated his brilliant talents investigating the sublime truth of God in the light of faith and the human intellect. Canonized in 1323, he is the patron of all Catholic schools and is titled “THE ANGELIC DOCTOR.”
22. SANTA MARGARITA DE UNGRIA.

23. SAN JACINTO.
Also known as the Polish St Dominic, he was born of the noble family of Odrowatz. He performed astounding miracles and cures. On every occasion of his life, our lady was to lighten the load for him, and as a last favor, she appeared to tell him that he would die on the Feast of the Assumption.
24. SAN PEDRO DE VERONA.
Born of heretical parents in Verona in 1206. At the age 15, he met St Dominic in Bologna and begged admission to the Order.

Consumed by work and penance, he died on August 6, 1221.
26. SAN JOSE.
In 1870, Pope Pius IX declared Joseph patron of the universal Church and instituted another feast, with an octave, to be held in his honour on Wednesday in the second week after Easter. This was abolished by Pope Pius XII, when in 1955 he established the Feast of “St. Joseph the Worker”, to be celebrated on 1 May. This date counteracts May Day, a union, workers and socialists holiday and reflects Joseph’s status as what many Catholics and other Christians consider the “patron of workers” and “model of workers.” Catholic and other Christian teachings and stories about or relating to Joseph and the Holy Family frequently stress his patience, persistence, and hard work as admirable qualities which believers should adopt.
NUESTRA SENORA DEL ROSARIO DE LA NAVAL DE MANILA.
Among the Dominican Shrines in the Philippines that of the image of OUR LADY OF THE HOLY ROSARY OF LA NAVAL in Santo Domingo Church in Quezon City rightly deserves first place both for its antiquity and importance. It dates from the 16th century and is located in the National Capital Region. In 1954, a Marian year, OUR LADY OF THE HOLY ROSARY Shrine in Santo Domingo Church was declared by the Philippine Hierarchy as the NATIONAL SHRINE OF OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY OF LA NAVAL.
The image of OUR LADY OF THE HOLY ROSARY OF LA NAVAL venerated at Santo Domingo Church was sculptured at the request of then the Acting Governor General of the Philippines Don Luis Perez Dasmarinas. Under the direction of Captain Hernando delos Rios Coronel, a chinese artisan sculptured it. It is 56 inches tall. Its head and hands are of ivory. The Holy Child is entirely of ivory. It was carved with such skill that after 400 years, it still retains its MAJESTIC AND IMPOSING BEAUTY which commands reverence and devotion before its presence.
For more than a century, the image was enthroned in one of the side altars of Old Santo Domingo Church in Intramuros, Manila build in 1588 in Intramuros, Manila in a niche protected with iron grills. In 1712, Fr Pedro de Mejorada OP built in her honor a stately chapel which was an extension of
the transept on the right side. It was from this chapel that the image of OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY presided over the fortunes of the Philippines for centuries. From this throne, she witnessed the growth and the maintenance of the Catholic Faith in the archipelago.
In 1646 15 well armed Dutch ships attacked the Philippines. To challenge them, 2 old galleons which had served as merchant ships along the Pacific routes in the Acapulco trade were speedily armed. They easily won over them in 5 resounding victories with the miraculous help of the LADY OF THE ROSARY to whom the Filipino fighters prayed for help. This has come down in history as the famous victories of LA NAVAL DE MANILA.
In 1907, the venerable image was canonically crowned in the most solemn rites on the 5th day of October. In the Second World War, the Church of Santo Domingo was bombed and was completely destroyed. The image of the LADY OF THE ROSARY spared from that catastrophe, was housed at the University of Santo Tomas from 1942 to 1954 in which year it was carried in solemn procession to her new Shrine in Santo Domingo Church in Quezon City.
