are once again preparing for Misa de Gallo 2018
or the early morning Holy Masses for nine consecutive days
beginning on December 16 and ending on December 24.
will be sure to attend the whole nine days
because it has been a Filipino tradition
for so many years.
It is believed that completing the nine days
will reward anyone with answered prayers
and lots of blessings
and whatever he wishes for during this season
will all be granted.
It's a tough one to make
for the Holy Masses begin earlier than usual
at around 4:00 AM or 4:30 AM.
The first day has always been drawing the largest crowd
with churches filling up in the shortest period of time.
But as the days go by,
the churches won't fill up as quick as the first day
simply because it's hard waking up very early.
But there are those who have completed the nine days
for many years already.
who's planning to attend the Holy Masses.
The Church is a Holy Place
built for humans to praise, worship and give thanks to God,
and is not for recreation or strolling around
like you do in the mall or in the park.
Wear the appropriate or proper attire too.
And if you go there with family or friends,
minimize your conversations so that
you won't be bothering or disturbing other people.
Love and peace everyone!
Have a Merry Christmas 2018!
