The Coronation

DEVOTION. FAITH. PEOPLE.

SALVE REGINA!

“And a great portent appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.”
Revelation 12:1

THE CORONATION: SYMBOL OF UNPARALLELED DEVOTION

On June 18, 2013, the Bishop of Antipolo, Most Rev. Gabriel V. Reyes, D.D., granted the petition for an Episcopal Coronation made by the parish priest, Fr. Lawrence C. Paz, in behalf of the parishioners and devotees of Our Lady. And history unfolds at that moment.

The Canonical Coronation emblem from the concept of Shrine Rector, Fr Larry Paz and carefully drawn and designed by Bro. James San Andres and Bro. Dave Axalan.

While after 3 (three) years of tireless praying, Fr Larry and the Parish Pastoral Council personally met Antipolo Bishop Emeritus Gabriel Reyes DD at his residence to received the official documents sent by Rome granting the Canonical Coronation of the image of the Nuestra Senora de Aranzazu. Copies were given of the endorsement of the Bishop of Antipolo addressed to Robert Cardinal Sarah, the Prefect of the Congregation of the Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments; a copy of the endorsement and acknowledgment letters of Archbishop Giuseppe Pinto, the Apostolic Nuncio; and the copy of the decree written in Latin stating the Holy Father’s grant of the canonical coronation of the Nuestra Senora de Aranzazu. The decree was dated June 17, 2016 and signed by the Prefect and Secretary.

The essence of the coronation is not only the image being crowned but an acknowledgment of the deep and fervent devotion of the people of San Mateo to the Blessed Mother under the title of “Nuestra Senora de Aranzazu” which has brought about countless stories of favors granted and even safety from flash floods.

For the record, DSPNSDA in San Mateo is the lone parish under the titular “Nuestra Senora de Aranzazu” in the whole Philippines and is set to have a year-long celebration of its 300 years. The Canonical Coronation of Our Lady of Aranzazu Mass was set on May 31, 2017.

GLORIOUS MARIAN SONG: “BIRHEN NG ARANZAZU”

Words derived from ‘Sa Mahal Na Birhen’ by Jose Rizal.
Original Text by Mark Anthony Arista. 
Music and Arrangement by Krina Cayabyab

O Maria ligaya ng tanang kinapal
Aming Inang sakdal tamis ng kapayapaan
Bukal na saklolong hindi naghuhumpay
Daloy ng biyayang walang pagkasyahan

*Birhen ng Bayang San Mateo
Darakilang Reyna ng Kristiyano
Sa tinikan kami’y iyong hinango
O inang birhen ng Arantzazu

**Korona’y nakamit mula sa langit
Lukuban mo kami ng yong balabal na marikit
Sa yong paglingap kami’y nasasabik
Reynang aming iniibig

Ikaw na Ina ko, Mariang matimtiman
Ikaw ang buhay ko at aming sandigan
Sa maalong dagat ikaw ang patnubay
Sa masukal na gubat ika’y aming gabay
