It is the first day of the Misa de Gallo also known as "Simbang Gabi".  It is a Filipino tradition of attending dawn masses for nine consecutive mornings.  There is a belief among Filipinos that if you are able to complete the attendance of the nine dawn masses, your Christmas wish will be granted.  I don't want to spoil the excitement of those people of believe it but I think we are all thinking it wrong.  The real essence of Misa de Gallo is all about preparation and a celebration for the coming of the Savior.  It is not a wishing well that will grant our wishes said one priest in last night's evening news.  So I hope we would go to church not for our wishes but to prepare ourselves to receive the Lord in our hearts.

Maligayang Pasko po sa ating lahat!
