We had our traditional visita iglesia with “cousinhood” and 3rd generation anakis… we have targeted the 14 chapels of barangay of Bulacan, Bulacan. Although we had planned to see the other side of Bulacan and their churches this year, but we have decided not to take long trips but rather take the “walk” to 14 barangays of our very own town. What we’ll “saved” on gas and picnic-food will go to our charity deeds at Phil Children’s Mission at Burol… Anyway, God is everywhere naman to pray to… besides it’s the substance of our “passion” and sacrifices that matter. This time, I have offered my prayers (with different theme) on every chapel, as follows:
1. Taliptip – Repentance and thanksgiving
2. Perez- wish for my Parents and payer for long life
3. Bambang – prayer for the beloved departed ones
4. Sta Ines – prayers for the needy and those I could reach to help
5. Sta. Ana – prayers for my Kids
6. Bagumbayan – prayers for my famiy life and papi
7. Immaculada Concepcion – wish for me and my career
8. San Jose – prayer for my business ventures
9. San Nicolas – guidance for my financial perspective
10. Cupang – blessing for my people and my “leadership”
11. Pitpitan – blessings for my adventurous spirit
12. San Francisco – blessings of my kins
13. Balubad – prayers for my self development and enhancement
14. Matungao – me and my spiritual aspect
Pics to follow….
Lord, I surrender to You my worries and anxieties. I surrender to you my need, my problems, my trials. I place them all in Your big hands! And I open myself to all that You want to give to me! On this day, I say yes to Your love, to Your blessings, to Your healing, to Your miracles! And Lord, specifically, I ask You for the following miracles in my life….
I believe that You answer my prayer in the best way possible! And I thank You in advance for the perfect answers to my prayers. I also ask for the special intercession of Mama Mary. I pray all this in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen!
Holy Week next week and we’ll have to repent and meditate for our souls’ sake…. This is the time (for me personally) to “touch-base” again with my spirituality. I know that it might seem “seasonal” but it’s really my time of year to reflect and pray (more than as usual)….
Also, we started last year with my cousins the Visita Iglesia of 14 churches. We did it last year from Bulacan to Pampanga, with last leg to Manaoag Pangasinan. We travelled in 3 cars on Goof Friday, with few “aberya” along the way. This year we plan to do it on Holy Thursday, and I suggest we’ll do it in Bulacan Province.
So, we have to plot the route to these beautiful, historical churches: (hey, cousins, help me plot it, I don’t know the way!)
