Deeply rooted in the faith and devotion has made this place mystical and religious. The center of the catholic faith of the province with a huge festival dedicated to the infant Jesus every January. Light a candle outside for your sincerest prayers. Fall in line to get up close and personal to the infant Jesus statue and admire one of the oldest artifacts and church architecture in the country. Magellan’s cross is right outside its doorstep. Modest clothing inside.

Today (January 19, 2020), the 3rd Sunday of the New Year 2020 is the Feast of the miraculous Sr Sto Niño and we're celebrating the SINULOG FESTIVAL. According to Wikipedia: The Sinulog-Santo Niño Festival is an annual cultural and religious festival held on the third Sunday of January in Cebu City, and is the centre of the Santo Niño Catholic celebrations in the Philippines. 

As a Sr Sto Niño devotee, I'm truly blessed to complete the 9 Days Novena Holy Masses (January 9th-17th, 2020) rain or shine, day and night at the Basilica Minore del Sto Niño de Cebu for 13 straight years from January, 2007 to January, 2020. That's a total of 117 Novena Holy Masses which I've attended as He continues to grant my countless prayers and petitions.

As a devotee of Our Lord Jesus Christ and of Our Lady, Blessed Virgin Mary, this is the start of my annual devotion every brand new year after we celebrate Christmas, New Year Day and my Birthday.

This is the mother church of Philippine Catholicism, and absolutely a must see. You will have to line up to see the Santo Nino statue, but while on line you can admire the fine architecture of this beautiful basilica. In the plaza, do not forget to have one of the prayer ladies dance some prayers for you. It certainly can't hurt!

I have a special place in my heart for the Santo Nino - and the Basilica of the Santo Nino in Cebu is no exception. We happen to be there with only a few people in the church so we took our time going around the church and the shrine. It's a very peaceful place and the old church is a historical place.
