On August 10,1718, the Spanish galleon La Sacra Familia from Acapulco, Mexico with Fr. Juan Delgado and other Jesuit Priests arrived on the port of Manila, bearing the ivory image of the Virgen de la Rosa which held a reliquary containing a strand of the Blessed Mother’s hair. It stayed in the San Ignacio church in Intramuros and was brought to the pueblo San Pedro Macati via the Pasig River and enshrined in its church on 13 August. The town’s main road and plaza were thus named 13 de Agosto to commemorate this momentous event.
