but of course nothing can deter me from seeing through the enthronement of the La Naval. it was very emotional, there was no electricity and yet the church was almost filled to capacity. we were praying the rosary in the dark because the church's generator can only illuminate the altar (this is one big church). the image of the virgin was rolled down the isle in candlelight and we all heard the tiples heavenly voices amdist the silence and darkness. you'd be really moved to tears.
a lot of trees in the sto. domingo compound were brought down by the wind but people braved to see the start of the yearly festivities. it's the second day of novena today and there's still no electricity in that area of quezon city. i'm sure Mama Mary really appreciates the faith and she'll totally pray for us ^_^
