President Benigno S. Aquino III was prayed over by Rev. Fr. Othello Bartolome, parish priest of Piat, Cagayan and rector of the Our Lady of Piat Basilica Minore, as he visited the church in the municipality of Piat, Cagayan province.
Our Lady of Piat, also called the Our Lady of the Rosary, was brought to the Philippines by a group of Dominican Fathers from Macau in 1604. She is well-known for her miraculous powers not only in the Philippines but in other countries as well.
