The story goes that long ago,a fisherman went out to catch fish in the nearby Pansipit River but caught something else in his fish net instead...................
In 1603, a fisherman by the name of Juan Maningkad fished out his net in the Pansipit River, in Taal, Batangas, a twelve inch tall image of OUR LADY OF CAYSASAY, radiating with heavenly luster. Upon seeing this image, Juan, being a pious man prostrated himself and venerated it, after which he carried the image home. Soon enough, the whole village came to know about his remarkable catch. The town authorities and the Vicar, who represented the King of Spain, went to Juan’s home to verify the story.
To investigate the mysterious coming and going of the image, the priest decided to set up parish volunteers to keep vigil beside the urn. With eager hearts they sat waiting and praying, and they did see the urn open by itself, as they saw with their own eyes the glorious image going out and coming back again.CONTINUE READING here: http://caysasay.com/Caysasay%20Home/storyOfCaysasay.html
