("The Meeting")

The Easter morning has always been
a big thing for us Filipinos.
Hopefully up to now.
But for sure, with Roxasians
(our town is called Roxas, 
after the late Pres. Manuel Roxas)
and the parishioners of
St. Isidore, the farmer parish
it is still the best for the easter celebration
after the "Risen Christ!."

Kids are dressed up like angels.
Little boys and little girls alike.
A long month of singing practice
for these so willing innocents.

On the early Sunday morning
the are all ready with 
their angel like white clothes,
their delicately made angel wings,
their angelic voices
continuously singing to wake
the town and
commemorate the
meeting of the risen Christ
and His mother Mary.

The whole town,
Catholics and non-Catholics
get up early at 4 o'clock in the morning 
to witness and
hear these little children sing
and praise the Lord...

the procession will end at the Main Church of the town
where the Easter egg hunting
for the kids ending the morning celebrations.

Happy Easter bloggers!
