Devotees undeterred by heat as they welcome Saint Pedro Calungsod

Posted on November 27, 2012


Devotees endured the heat of the midday sun to welcome the arrival of the Saint Pedro Calungsod image in Cebu.

People lined in the streets where the motorcade passed and headed towards the Blessed Pedro Calungsod shrine at the Archbishop’s Palace in D. Jakosalem street.

They waved flaglets and hands and threw petals as the image passed by them from the Palace and towards the Our Lady of Guadalupe shrine in barangay Guadalupe, Cebu City.

The image arrived at the shrine past 12 noon. A ceremonial placement of halo on the image’s head was done by Msgr. Ildebrando Leyson to manifest his sainthood.

Afterwards the image was brought to the Archdiocesan shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe for the first Triduum Mass./ Ador Vincent Mayol, Reporter
