Visita Iglesia with my niece Kellie
Confession at Saint Elizabeth Parish Church
Attended the mass at Barasoain Church and observe the washing of feet. The washing of feet ia symbolic action which expresses living a Eucharistic Life, a life of self emptying love.
We pray the Stations of the Cross in Divine Mercy.
Then me and my niece spend the whole night at the National Shrine of the Divine Mercy.

 Repository at  Basilica Minore
Basilica Minore de Immaculada Concepcion, Malolos City,
This historic church was in 1896 the seat of power of Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo—the first president of the Republic of the Philippines. Located in front of the Basilica Minore is a century-old tree known as the Kalayaan Tree (Tree of Freedom) which was planted by Pres. Aguinaldo during a lull in the historic Malolos Convention. It is presently the seat of the Diocese of Malolos, and has been the bastion of faith for the past centuries.
