Flores de Mayo 2014

Another tradition that is dying or almost rarely seen is the Flores de Mayo. The religious meaning and significance of the even that has often times been confused with two other May events in honor of the Virgin Mary, that is the Sagala and the Santacruzan.

The procession took less than two minutes to pass me. There were girls dressed as angels and is carrying flowers in the shape of the titles of Mary as stated in the Litany of the Rosary.

At last the Salesian brothers have maintained the purity of this wonderful tradition. I saw the Flores de Mayo in front of the Makati Cinema Square because they just turned at the corner going to St. John Bosco Parish.
