Notice

When I started this blog 3 years ago in 2007, I didn't know the do's and don'ts of blogging. I don't know how to use backlinks,tags, credit article sources etc. I only learn the basics of blogging a year ago when I studied SEO.

If I wasn't able to appropriately credit persons, resources, websites and other blogs; I sincerely apologize I've unknowingly didn't give the proper credits out of 'ignorance' now that I know rest assured that the proper credits will be given in my current and future posts.

I've put up this blog to express the richness of the Catholic faith, if there are other denominations or 'cults' who are offended then you're not welcome here! I used to have online debates with other sects before I don't have time for that as I'm handling 2 jobs and I have a family to take care off, engaging in online debates will eat much of my time. As for the question of 'salvation' 'are you saved?' 'will you be able to enter heaven?' blah blah blah! This questions are already redundant! These are already been answered by great Catholic Apologists at group discussions at friendster and facebook, you will also these good Catholic Apologists at Katoliko Defensor VS Bro Eli Soriano. Post your questions and arguments there!!

If your just gonna slam the Catholic faith and the Catholic faithful on my blog then GET OUT!!! Go here and get ready to face great Catholic Apologists just make sure that you won't be running away at the end!! lol!!

Santo Nino de Tondo Parish -Bisperas ng Fiesta 2010

We heard mass last night (the eve of the feast of the Child Jesus) at the Santo Nino de Tondo Parish, we brought along our two images of the Child Jesus.

Here are some of the photos that we took last night:



'Pahalik' (This is the image of the Santo Nino at the back of the altar, we need climb a long and winding staircase in order to see the image of the Santo Nino)

Devotion to the Santo Nino (Infant Jesus)

The month of January is dedicated and devoted to Santo Niño, the Holy Child Jesus. There are lots of popular festivals in the country that honors the infant Jesus. My family and I will be going to Santo Nino de Tondo Parish tomorrow the eve of the fiesta to hear mass because it is so crowded on the day of the fiesta itself. When I was a baby until my high school years my family and I hear mass every fiesta in Tondo, now that I have children of my own I have dedicated them to the Infant Jesus and I'm introducing them to this devotion as well.

Here are some of the popular Santo Nino festivals in the Philippines:

1. Ati-Atihan Festival in Kalibo Aklan




2. Sinulog Festival in Cebu City



3. Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo City




4. Sto. Niño de Tondo Festival




5. Sto Nino de Pandacan Festival

Happy To Be Back

After my long hibernation, I'm sooooo happy to be back.

This time I'll be focusing more about the typical Filipino Catholic and popular devotions there are a good number of Catholic Apologetic blogs out there. I'll leave the task of defending the Holy Roman Catholic Church to them lol! But don't provoke me coz I won't back out!
