Just got home from a Visita Iglesia! Well, this Holy Week 2012 is kind of sad to me, I don’t know why. Maybe because we were just 6 who went to the Visita Iglesia. Sometimes, the feeling of participating such events gets happier when more company participate.
This Maundy Thursday, we went to about 7 churches. It was fun driving all the way to those holy grounds. It could have been happier if we were complete. I also learned a small phrase which has a very big meaning: Deus Meus Et Omnia. Find it out yourself. 😉
We ate in Barrio Fiesta afterwards. They only had 1 waiter and 1 cashier. I pity that waiter because he had all the work. The food came after 30-40 minutes of waiting. Well, we can’t blame them, it’s Holy Week.
If you are going for Visita Iglesia in Manila, you should be going to these 8 famous old churches:
- Malate Church
- San Agustin Church
- Manila Metropolitan Cathedral
- Tondo Church
- Binondo Minor Basilica
- Quiapo Minor Basilica
- San Sebastian Minor Basilica
- Sta. Ana Church
We only visited 2 out of 8. Well, I’ll try to visit 8 of them next time.
So how’s your Visita Iglesia? How do you find it? It’s fun, eh?
Wasn’t able to do Visita Iglesia this year!
Haha. We didn’t do any Visita Iglesia. It’s been a long time since I did. I can’t remember the last time either. :/
