Thousands of devotees flocked to the Divine Mercy Shrine in El Salvador City, Misamis Oriental over the weekend to celebrate its feast day.
As shown in the following photos, the Catholic faithful from all walks in life slept overnight to witness the dawn mass which also coincided with the Canonization of Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII. Organizers estimate the crowd close to 60,000 (Read related news HERE). The event also caused traffic along the National Highway thereby stalling traffic to and from Laguindingan Airport.
