The primary festival of the Feast of La Naval de Manila was hung on Oct. 8, 1646 in Intramuros, Manila, to stamp the maritime triumph of the Spanish and Filipino Catholic powers against the attacking Dutch armada. Reminiscent of the triumph of the enormously dwarfed Christian maritime powers against the Turks at the Battle of Lepanto in 1571, which was credited to the intervention of the Blessed Mother, the joint Spanish and Filipino powers, upon the counsel of the Dominican monks, asked the Holy Rosary before each experience with the attacking powers between March 15 and Oct. 4. At long last, the Dutch armada surrendered and left the nation.
Devour customs to pay tribute to La Naval will also be seen in Fort San Felipe in Cavite City, and in different towns and wards put under her support. In thanksgiving to God and the Holy Mother for the triumph, Spanish church pioneers started the festival of the main devour of La Naval de Manila. Measuring roughly four feet and eight inches high, the body is made of hardwood in the enclosure or Bastidor style. The face and hands, and in addition the whole Child Jesus, are made of strong ivory. Since its creation, the statue considered the most established dated ivory cutting in the Philippines – has dependably been enriched with expound pieces of clothing and a crown.
