As a family tradition since we were not able to go to Cebu for Sinulog, I would make sure we would be able to celebrate mass for my dear son's special day at the Shrine.
Various statues and images of the Sto. Nino being blessed by the priest who presided the first mass during the fiesta day. The fiesta of the Sto. Nino in Cebu will be on Sunday, January 18.
Since my dear son cannot be absent from class, we went for the first mass so we can make it on time for school and we still have time for a simple breakfast date.
Even early in the morning there were many people lining up to kiss the image of the Sto Nino and the line grew longer and longer throughout the day. We didn't want to go there after school because for sure the traffic will be heavier and will be more challenging to get a ride back home plus the weather too might give in to rain later in the day.
We're thankful as devotees and we are grateful for all the blessings and favors we have received through the years especially my dear son or this special day that we celebrate every year on the same day. We love you so much son!!!
Happy Fiesta to everyone!
