PANUNULUYAN IS A SEARCH FOR THE WILL AND PLAN OF GOD
Two PANUNULUYANS were done at San Pedro Apostol Parish on Dec. 24, 2012 with the theme SEEKING THE WILL OF GOD. One in the depressed areas of the city, the other in the church before the midnight mass.
The PANUNULUYAN is the traditional reenactment of Mary's and Joseph's search for shelter for Jesus about to be born then in Bethlehem. It is actually Mary's and Joseph's search for the WILL AND PLAN OF GOD on the place of birth for Christ.
At San Pedro Apostol Parish, gift-giving, handled by the Wise men and the Shepherds, for the poorest of the poor, accompanied the PANULUYAN on Dec. 24, 2012. This gift giving was a manifested response to God's love. "This is how we know what love is. Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. We ought to lay down our lives for our brothers." 1 Jn. 3:16"
