IN PHOTOS: Filipinos mark Easter 2018 with 'Salubong'
MANILA, Philippines – Filipinos marked Easter, the feast of Christ's resurrection, with the traditional Salubong (Welcoming) procession that reenacts Jesus meeting his mother after he rose from the dead.
Filipinos traditionally observe the Salubong through a dawn procession that ends in front of the church, with the statues of Jesus and Mary "meeting" on Easter.
Check Salubong photos from San Agustin Church in Intramuros, Manila, and Saint Peter Parish in Quezon City below:
Earlier, Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle in his Easter Vigil Mass reminded Filipinos to "roll away" the "stones" of sin, as when the rolling away of a stone 2,000 years ago revealed Christ's resurrection on the first Easter. – Rappler.com
