Visita Iglesia de Paa 2014 (The 8th Year)

My Visita Iglesia de Paa 2014. 

My 8th year. 

The heat was excruciating but when you have a goal, nothing will stop you. This is my annual panata and I am happy to have successfully done it for 8 years straight. As long as I can do this, I will try to do so. The 
feeling of gratitude and fullfillment afterwards is so worth all the physical discomfort. The 8 hours or more of walking is for a higher sacrifice. Completed again all 13 churches.

hank you for the guidance, Lord.

1. Claret Church in UP Diliman, QC (Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish)

 2. Sacred Heart Parish 

3. St. Paul the Apostle Parish

 4. Sto.Domingo Church

Free water for the weary and thirsty at Sto. Domingo church
Hope everyday traffic is like this (wishful thinking!)
5. UST Santisimo Rosario Chapel

Sea of people all headed to Quaipo Church
