Holy Week in San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan 2012: Easter Sunday

One More Time

Nostalgic about Salubong 2012.

Slide2 (Small)
It may still be the dead of night but in our household, people are already starting to get up and prepare for the Salubong procession...

Slide3 (Small)
A beautiful moon, a beautiful night...however everything else is still shrouded by the veil of darkness, despair and gloom over the death of Christ...not for long... Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Slide4 (Small)
Every Easter Sunday, family members have two options: A) accompany the image of the Alegria to the Parish and join the procession from the start; B) Wait for the procession outside our house. I wish they will revert to the old procession route wherein the procession passes through our street as well during Good Friday, not just Easter.

Slide6 (Small)
The procession is here...San Pedro leading the way...gosh, in my head a picture of my family joining the Salubong Procession was taken and published in a's in my head since I was the question is, is it real or not?

Slide5 (Small)
From smallest to Biggest...procession towards the Galilea

Salubong. For the first time in many years, the Risen Christ and the Virgin are equal in size...looks nicer visually
