Holy Week Preparations
When I received my Starbucks Planner as a Christmas gift last year, I immediately marked Good Friday and Easter in my planner, two very important days in my year, and in my life not just because I am Catholic but because of my personal devotion. Time flies so fast. Seems like yesterday I just received it as a gift...now, as always, I feel I have little time to complete all preparations needed for the Holy Week processions.
Never forget God, sometimes we become too busy or absorbed in things we NEED to do that we forget the most important things...I am also guilty that's why it's great to see reminders all around you to make you stop and reflect...a floating cross hovers in Ortigas which made me think of God after one busy day of buying stuff I needed for the procession...Lord, have mercy on us, may our sacrifices be pleasing to you...
Back at San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan
I had to make several visits to San Jose this year:
1. Help Clean
2. Fix the Lighting on Cleofe's carroza
My Lighting Inspiration, from Trinoma Department Store
Another inspiration, but the power source became a struggle so I eventually scrapped the idea.
Final Lighting Plan, thanks to my Tito D for finishing it:
Ever since I saw an image of Sta. Veronica dressed as a princess of Mindanao in the Prusisyon book, I have included that in my to do list in the future...that once I have my own Santa (image) joining in the procession I will definitely dress her that way as well...that time has not yet come...I still can't decide how to make it not look too costumy...
My Tita gamely poses as we try on fabrics that will best look on the image...
