2012 Visita Iglesia

Since transferring to our home here in Makati last year, we started a tradition of visiting churches for each of the stations of the cross. Last year, we started around 8pm on holy thursday and got home just about 2am. This year,  we started a little after 1pm since I will be the one driving and we are not really familiar with all the streets here in makati and manila area.  Luckily, the husband has a friend who has become like a brother to us and who went with us on our visita iglesia. 

I have already picked the churches ahead so that the trip wouldn't take us too long going around but when we can't locate the ones we originally intended to visit, we discovered other churches instead which are nearer.  Earlier that day, i have been  complaining of irritable bowel syndrome and stomach flu and my aunt has been disuading me on doing visiting 14 churches. Ordinarily,it would have been easier to just give in anyway i had a perfect excuse but thankfully, I didn't.  It wouldn't have been as fulfilling. Well, with my ibs and stomach cramps it's actually more like a wait-and-see attitude. I prayed that i get healed so that we can finally do our visita iglesia.Also for a safe and uneventful one. And God answers prayers so we were good to go.

So here's the churches that we visited this year:

1.  St. John of The Cross
     Pembo, Makati

2.  San Roque Parish

3.  Mater Dolorosa Parish
     East Rembo

4.  Santuario de San Antonio

14.  Sacred Heart Parish
