Simbang Gabi 2016: A Pilgrimage

This year, a small band of friends decided to do a little pilgrimage for the traditional Simbang Gabi. We visited three (3) churches from the City of Makati, three (3) churches from Paranaque City, and three (3) churches from the City of Muntinlupa. It was an interesting and challenging experience, where for some days we had to wake up as early as 2:30am just to make sure we make it to some churches on time.  I’m not sure of I would like to do this again next year… But it was a blessing to have done it this year, after going through the tribulation that is 2016. The feeling of survival after the nine (9) days very well equals that feeling of having survived 2016.

And I look forward to only a glorious, prosperous, peaceful, and positive 2017! 🙂
