Pray without Ceasing: St. Joseph's Convent of Perpetual Adoration

In the heart of bustling Quezon City lies a sanctuary where one can find refuge from the daily hurly-burly of metropolitan life. This sanctuary is the St. Joseph's Convent of Perpetual Adoration, commonly known as the Pink Sister's Convent. 

The convent is administered by the Holy Spirit Adoration Sisters commonly known as the Pink Sisters because of the color of their habit. The church grounds are so solemn that you can feel there the Divine presence which refreshes the soul.

Beneath the crucifix is an angel holding a tridacna gigas holy water container.

The Sacred Heart of Jesus is flanked by the Society of the Divine Word saints.

The Blessed Sacrament is exposed inside the church and the nuns are continuously praying before the Blessed Sacrament. The prayer rotations are for one hour each.

I came to know this church because former president Cory Aquino would visit this church when faced with life's challenges.

At the time when the house of Speaker Jose de Venecia in Makati burned and their daughter KC died from the fire, one of the nuns in the convent prayed for her eternal repose. The nun prayed to the Lord that if her prayer is already granted, she may receive a pair of shoes. Several days after that, the nun received a pair of shoes from a donor.     

For myself, I prayed in this church to pass the chemical engineering board exam and to get admitted and offered the Asian Development Bank Scholarship at the Asian Institute of Management. Both of these prayers were granted to me by the good Lord!
