Nonet: An Angel in Salubong?

Feast and Festivities Add comments

Most Catholic believers will know what a “Salubong” is. It is a procession held at dawn to remember the meeting of Jesus and Mary’s when Jesus resurrected from the death, held at the dawn of Easter Sunday. During the “salubong” an angel will take the veil of Mama Mary’s image, the song Regina Caeli is being sang.

I have participated masses in “Salubong” for a number of times but I didn’t get to be an angel. When we are kids, it has been a dream of my younger sister Patty, but it didn’t come true. So, we just admired the cute angels in the said event.

Just recently, Nonet was asked by my Tita Evelyn to be one of the angels in the coming Easter. At first, no matter how she is convinced by my sister, she wouldn’t agree. She is not interested. Let me share you a post from my sister’s fb account. It was a dialogue between her and my daughter. :)

Patty Amandy: Eksena kagabi. Kinukuha si Nonet na mag-angel sa salubong sa Easter Sunday..Kino-convince nmen sya kasi ayaw nyang pumayag..

Patty: pag nag-angel ka ibibili kita khit anong gusto mo
Nonet: ayaw ko nga!
Patty: cge na nmn please! alam mo bang pangarap ko yang mag angel sa salubong nung bata ako!pangarap ko yan buong buhay ko! (dumadrama mode kay bagets)
eh di ikaw ang mag angel ngayon para matupad na yang pangarap mo!

It was really a funny scene! :D

Few days later, I encouraged my daughter again and she agreed to be an angel. She will not be the one to take the veil off though, but a younger girl. Nevertheless, our dream of becoming an angel in Salubong will be fulfilled by Nonet, soon. :)

Ciao! :)
