Happy Feast of the Baptism of The Lord {wiws vol 8}

Today we celebrate the Feast of the Baptism of The Lord officially completing the Christmas season.

This feast is quite a celebration in my hometown. We have a black Nazarene in our parish. Hundreds of people come to our tiny little town for pilgrimage and devotion to our Nazarene.

But our celebration and pilgrims are 'nothing' compared to crowd in Quiapo, Manila on this feast day. Yearly, millions and millions of people join the Black Nazarene statue in its Translacion or passage to the Minor Basilica.

I can't even see Jesus. Just his cross.... And tons of pilgrims.


I have never been to the procession. It's quite scary because of the crowd.

And to end the suspense, here's what we wore to Mass this feastday. {we didn't join any procession}
