Simbang Gabi


Did you wake up early today to catch the traditional Simbang Gabi (Misa de Gallo or Rooster’s Mass)?

Today (December 16) marks the beginning of the nine-day mass observed by the Catholic faith in the Philippines (and elsewhere worldwide).

It’s a popular belief that by completing the nine-day mass, which ends on December 24, one will be able to fulfill his/her prayer. You can pray for goodwill, good health, prosperity, or just about anything even material things like gps tracking for trucks. But don’t expect for a miracle to happen instantly because you still have to work hard for the things that you wish or pray for.

What is it that you want to achieve this year?
