The Saint John The Baptist Parish (Lilio Church) in Liliw, Laguna was founded in 1605. The original church and convent were badly damaged in 1880 during a strong earthquake, while the reconstructed church was partly burned in 1898.
When I went inside Liliw Church, it was as if I stepped into another world. It was very dark and cold inside, but comforting in a way. The only source of light was the weak sunlight filtering through the unique church windows.
For me, Liliw Church was the perfect place for prayers and meditation. I wanted to stay here longer but we still had other places and churches to go to.
