Philippines Mission 2017

Day One

We were invited to attend one of the Novena masses for the Santo Nino Feast Day coming up to January 12th. What we were astounded by was the mass of people that attend this mass, for the Basilica holds 11 masses every day of the year.  Each mass can hold 15,000.  Wow!  As we arrived we we were escorted not knowing where our destination was within the crowds. We soon realized we were given seats on the altar area!  What a blessing to see all the faithful people celebrating Santo Nino.
