Holy week celebration has just started when we arrived in Philippines for our annual vacation. We always join the procession in honor of our family patron, St.Peter.This has been a Santos’ family tradion for years. This year Zek gave his self-sacrificing participation without any complaint throughout the way. He helped push the decorated and well-lit float of St.Peter with Papa Ben and Tito Rommel guiding him for more than a kilometer long way around the village followed with more images of saints.
Everyone who saw him was amazed of his perseverance and noble action as a child though this was just really like playing for him. He just turned 5 and his faith is bigger than us, his parents. We have a lot of hesitation everytime this season comes with a time for absolution, but he showed us a great example of how to be a real child of God.
This is how I saw him as an angel to us, his parent.
Great Job Kuya Zek! We are so proud of you.
