The caro bearing the Sto. Nino at the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.

Last Saturday was the 16th Sinulog celebration of the Filipino community here in Stuttgart, Germany. It was my very first time to join in the festivities as I have never experienced the Sinulog while I was still in the Philippines. Ironic, isn't it?

It was a very fun celebration. We were blessed by God with a very good weather and the celebration went smoothly from the celebration of the Holy Eucharist down to the procession and then the continuation of festivities at the Festhalle.

Pit Senyor Ate Vicky! May He answer your prayers...

While it was unlike the grand celebration that you see in Cebu, the Filipino devotion to the Holy Infant Jesus was very much alive when we danced to the music in worship and thanksgiving. I must admit that while dancing and while witnessing the others dance, I got teary-eyed, touched by the Holy Spirit and the realization that indeed, it will always be faith and the spirit of friendship and love that will bind and unite a community.
