It is the Sinulog weekend in Cebu, the fiesta sa Balaan na Bata, the feast of the Holy Child. Some of you may associate Sinulog with just the Grand Parade, street dancing and pocket parties that sprung up in the city streets but to many Cebuanos and devotees of the Senyor Santo Nino, this feast is to thank the Sto Nino, to praise Him for all the blessings, to pray to Him.
The Basilica Minore del Sto Nino ~ Sinulog Novena Mass
The 9 days novena masses in the Basilica del Sto Nino is always jam-packed despite having masses scheduled every one and a half hour. Devotees from all over the country come in droves to join the Cebuanos in prayers, celebration and devotion.
I would like to share with you this video that my friend Doi of TheTravellingFeet took on the last day of the novena, the closing salvo. The communal singing in the Sto Nino Church pilgrims center, the shouting of Pit Señor! transports me to Cebu and I hope it sends good vibes to you too!
May we all be blessed by the Holy Child Sto Nino de Cebu
Thanks for this taking this video Doi and thanks Jess for these amazing, wonderful shots that sends goosebumps up to my spine.
Baby Jesus Thank You! Praise You! Viva!!!
