QC@75: When Green Meets Blue

After our food tour at Eastwood Mall, we went directly to Ateneo de Manila University. Oh maybe you’re wondering about my title, yes I’m from the Green University hihi!;) It was my first time to visit Ateneo. Going to the Ateneo Art Gallery,  I saw these giant jackstones by Anton Del Castillo, I remember my childhood days where we used to play this with my sister. Life before was so simple.

Because we arrived late our tour guide at the gallery left already;(  Let’s just take a look at some of my photos.

Our next stop,

THE CHURCH OF GESU

I was amazed with the structural design of their Church. According to them the triangular structures symbolizes the Holy Trinity and as well the three-fold mission vision of the University.

In front of the church you can see the white statue of Sacred Heat of Jesus.

“Come to me all of you who are burdened, and I will refresh you. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am mee and gentle of heart, thus you will find refreshment for your souls. My yoke is sweet and my burden light.”  Matthew 11:28

Their Station of the Cross made of stained glass is so beautiful. It serves as a backdrop of the holy water altar, which I find so unique because it has a built in water circulating system.

Church of the Gesu cannot conduct sacramental celebrations such as baptism, confirmation, or marriage.
