Sadly, Santo Nino Basilica lost its Belfry in the 7.1 Philippine Earthquake

Here are pictures of the Santo Nino Basilica in Cebu with its belfry intact. I took these pictures last July 2013.  I'm also posting a recent picture of the damaged Santo Nino Basilica.

While I realize the recent Philippine earthquake has caused more serious catastrophes (people have died, and other churches in Bohol have collapsed and cannot be saved), I have a special attachment to the Santo Nino.  It was here where my mother danced her prayer when I was newly born and dying from beri-beri.  My mother credits the miraculous Child Jesus of the Santo Nino Basilica for my healing.
