Holy Week ushers in today with Palm Sunday.
And for us Pinoy Catholics, we usually attend mass with “palaspas“
or crafted coconut tree leaves to be blessed by the priest
in remembering the entry & return of Jesus Christ to Jerusalem
few days before His suffering on the cross.
And so Tina, Gabby & I went to hear the 9AM mass
in VirraMall, Greenhills in San Juan.
The simple chapel is airconditioned, with very inviting ambiance,
located in the heart of a shopping complex, amidst the numerous bargain stalls,
shops & restaurants. In my opinion, its location is strategic,
reminding shoppers that above all earthly things,
intangible ones like religious belief & the love of the Lord
should be given top most priority, ofcourse.
God give us PEACE this Holy Week & beyond…
