Shrine of Mary, Queen of Peace, Our Lady of EDSA

The external structure of the Shrine of Mary, Queen of Peace as seen from one of the footbridges connecting the four corners of EDSA-Ortigas Avenue intersection. The external structure is surrounded by elevated platforms with staircases and ramps on the opposite sides. The elevated platforms and part of the staircases have plants. The doors to inside the church are under the staircases. The bottom-center of the structure has murals depicting the events of EDSA II. The front-center of the structure has metallic letters of the Bible verse from 2 Chronicles 7:14, although it only shows Chronicles 7:14 (the 2 probably fell-off or something). At the top is the iconic golden brown statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary wearing a crown and exposed Immaculate Heart and with birds on her left hand and right shoulder. At the background is the Robinsons Galleria and several buildings in the Ortigas Business District.

Photo Gallery

The sanctuary of Shrine of Mary, Queen of Peace, is primarily green in color; it has green carpet on the floor, the piano is covered in green, and the statue of Jesus on the crucifix at the center is a jade-colored stained glass with yellow lights at the back. The tabernacle is on the bottom-left of the crucifix (right if you are facing the congregation) and is covered with a jade-like slab. The walls are mostly dirty white marbles but look brown due to yellow lights. Also partly visible on the right (left if you are facing the congregation) are the organ with large silver pipes and a statue of Mary that looks like a smaller version of the one on top of the shrine.A monochrome statue of St. Francis of Assisi in one of the open air areas of EDSA Shrine. Here. St. Francis is holding a large clamshell, with two small birds on its side. The statues of the birds are positioned as if they are drinking water from inside the shell.This is a crucifix near the entrance of the EDSA Shrine that is facing EDSA. The statue of Jesus is brown, and unlike a typical crucifix, the position of his arms are asymmetrical, with left arm in straight diagonal position while the right arm is bending at an L-shape. The wood that makes up the cross are raw cylindrical logs.A statue of Mary inside a glass cabinet in the Shrine of Mary, Queen of Peace. She is wearing a white hood, brown robe, and blue overcoat. There's what seems to be golden rays emanating downward from both of her hands. She is also wearing a crown, and there's a halo at the back of her head. Twelve stars are attached to the halo. Her arms are down, and her palms are visible.A bishop's coat of arm on the floor of Shrine of Mary, Queen of Peace. It has a pentagon-shaped shield at the center; It has twelves tassels, six on the left and six on the right of the shield. It has a cross on top of the shield and a galero hat above the cross. Below the shield is a ribbon strip with the word PAX, Latin for peace written on it. On the shield, there are figures: near the top is that of a plant branch with ten leaves and five pearl-like small spheres, on the left is what looks like a white silhouette of a bishop holding a book, and on the right is a large letter M.
