Marian Procession

Yesterday was the 50th Marian procession at Intramuros, Manila. I was there to witness this annual event. There were more than 70 images of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It started at exactly 4 in the afternoon. Some devotees performed their traditional dances which were either solemn or joyous. The karakols were all beautifully decorated with flowers of various kinds and colors. They were so fragrant that I could smell them everytime they pass. The media was present (the event will be featured in TV Patrol on Wednesday, and also on Saturday at F). Of course the archbishop of Mania The most reverend Gaudencio Rosales was there, as well as those belonging to the diocese of Manila. There were other guests too, and the crowd was really huge. The image of Our Lady of Manaoag was the grandest as it even had two sets of hot air balloons carrying a rosary and it had fireworks as it passed. The image of Our Lady of Turumba was the most festive. The Nuestra Se–ora Virgen del Rosario won the best karakol. The procession ended at 6:30 pm. The fireworks lasted for only a few minutes but it was grand. The feast of the Immaculate Conception is on December 8.

I will upload the photos by this week.
