Visita Iglesia 2016: Pasig Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral


Wazzup Pilipinas!

It was a tiring but blessed day. We do a Visita Iglesia every year and always during Good Friday. This time it was very special since all seven churches we visited had special and significant meanings in our lives that will forever be a part of our "unforgettable" memories.

Yes, there are memories that are slowly fading away that they are almost forgotten, but there are still those that remain strongly immortalized into our minds because they also have an intimate place in our hearts. I believe that when both mind and heart are in unison, everything else follows and become a lifelong rhythm or melody that will forever be reverberating in our ears like soothing or vibrant music.

Our first visit was of course starting with the main church of Pasig, formally known as the Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral located at Plaza Rizal of Barangay Malinao. It was not only because we live in Pasig, but this is also the church where I was christened. I was born in Pasig and my parents first lived in this city before we transferred to Pateros where my parents built a house. I was very young when we left Pasig, and I was destined to return and live here with my wife and kids again. This is where my eldest child was christened too, but that happened when we were still living in Pateros where my eldest was also born.

I've included the Pasig church which we already visited from a previous Visita Iglesia way back 2014 so you can just refer to the article we wrote about it. We often visit this church aside from the Santa Clara de Montefalco Parish located at C. Raymundo Avenue Barangay Caniogan and the San Antonio Abad Parish located at Stella Maris Avenue Barangay Maybunga which are nearer our home.

This is Part 1 of 7 since we visited 7 churches from different locations starting with Pasig and ending in Paranaque where we visited the National Shrine of Our Mother of Perpetual Help of more popularly known as the Baclaran church.



 
Nakaka-LSS naman talaga. Kapag kasi ikaw ay masaya, lagi kang mapapakanta sa tuwa. Lahat ng pangyayari sa iyomg buhay ay may halaga, may katuturan, may natatanging katangian, na dapat ipagmalaki at ipangalandakan dahil nais mong ibalita rin sa iba ang iyong kasiyahan. Hindi upang ipagyabang, kundi para ipadama na dumarating talaga ang grasya sa mga taong nabubuhay ng marangal at tunay na walang itinatago, walang halong pagkukunwari, walang pakitang-tao lang.

Ngayong Semana Santa, sana ay makilala natin ang mga "pretentious" sa paligid-ligid. Ihalal po natin ang karapat-dapat sa posisyon at hindi ang mapag-kunwari lamang na pilit tayong binobola sa mababangong pangako ng pagbabago.Iboto po lamang natin ang tunay na may kakayahan na isakatuparan ang kanilang plano at hindi mananatili na bukambibig lamang.






We were fortunate to see people coming in from a Stations of the Cross ritual. They have with them the statue of the Nazareno and Mother Mary.

 


You can learn more about this Pasig church from our previous article which details some historical background about the church.



Napakadali po na magsabing pauunlarin nila ang ating bayan sa pamamagitan ng makabagong pamamaraan, tatanggalin ang korupsiyon sa sambayanan sa loob lamang ng ilang buwan, bibigyan ng trabaho ang lahat maging ang mahihirap na kulang naman sa pinag-aralan at kakayahan, at kung ano-ano pang pangako na lagi namang napapako.

Hindi na po tayo baguhan sa ganyang kabaliwan. Lahat naman po ay ipapangako nila para lamang malagay sa puwesto pero once na nariyan na sila at makapangyarihan ay wala na silang pananagutan kapag hindi nila nagawa ang kanilang mga plataporma.
