The Church of Pater Noster displays the Lord's prayer in several languages! I am so glad that the Philippines has 4 Filipino translations of the “Our Father” at the Pater Noster church in Tagalog, Pampango, Cebuano and Ilonggo.

This place is a jewel. Beautifully kept rose gardens, a stunning olive tree field, silence and contemplation all around. Few benches and no cafe, otherwise I would have stayed hours.
