Moriones Festival, 2014 and the OFW's of Marinduque


Easter Sunday Pageant in Marinduque, 2011
Today is one day before the end of the 2014 Moriones Festival. The crowds in Boac last night was just overwhelming, but the one In Gasan is tolerable according to my guests from US and Australia.

There were two processions in Gasan. One is sponsored by the Roman Catholic Church and the other by the Philippine Independent Church also called the Aglipayan Church My guests were impressed by the procession of the Aglipayan church. The procession started with just the clapping sounds of the wood cymbals with men in black hoods at the start of the procession. The clap, clap. clap sound of the wooden cymbals reminds us of the Crucifixion. The Moriones Festival in Gasan will end tomorrow with Street Dancing celebrating the Resurrection. This event always reminds me of the Mardi Gras of New Orleans, LA, USA. My Advance Happy Easter Greetings to All.

Today also reminds me a poem written by Victor Vizarra honoring the OFW's of Marinduque who are now vacationing and enjoying the Holy Week Festivities here in Marinduque:
Balanacan Cove, Mogpog

A poem as a tribute to Marinduque and its Overseas Workers All Over the World(OFW).
