Sinulog 2018 Highlights

As promised I’m sharing snippets from the recent Sinulog. Though my photos and video clips are not post worthy, luckily there’s Sinulog Foundation Inc. that gave us front-row-seat feels from the festival. Latter photos are mine 🙂

Pit Senyor!

Prayer to Jesus of Nazareth

I’m sharing this prayer in time for the feast day of the Black Nazarene – January 9.

BELOVED LORD JESUS OF NAZARETH, I COME TO YOU TO HELP ME.
LIFE IS A CONSTANT STRUGGLE, AND I NOW FEEL THE PAIN OF MY JOURNEY.
BLESS ME JESUS AND TEACH ME TO LISTEN, TO ALL THE EVENTS OF MY LIFE,
KNOWING THAT NOTHING HAPPENS BY CHANCE. EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS HAS A REASON.
WHEN I FEEL THE PAIN OF SICKNESS, TEACH ME TO COPE WITH LOVING SURRENDER
AND TO BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF HEALING.
WHEN I EXPERIENCE EMOTIONAL, FINANCIAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL BROKENNESS,
HELP ME TO RISE UP WITH BELIEF THAT WITH GOD, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.
I COME TO YOU TODAY, TO PRAY FOR HEALING. PLEASE HEAR MY PETITION (SAY PETITIONS…)
I PRAY TO YOU AND MY MOTHER MARY TO ANSWER MY PRAYERS AMEN.

JESUS, I PUT MY TRUST IN YOU!

 

*little history of this iconic image of Jesus,

A life-sized statue from Mexico and came here in the Philippines last 400 years ago, when Spanish colonization has just began. The feast day is celebrated every January 9, and during this day it is accustomed for devotees to do the “pahalik” or to kiss or touch the image as a sign of respect and honor to our scourged Savior. It is also a tradition to walk barefooted which depicts humility just like the Son of God, Jesus Christ.
