‘Salubong’ marks Easter Sunday in Manila

Catholics welcome the Easter with the traditional “Salubong”, a re-enactment of the Biblical account of the Risen Jesus Christ reuniting with Mother Mary, after the Easter Vigil around midnight at the San Agustin Church in Intramuros, Manila, April 16, 2017. In other parts of the country this is held at dawn where a child dressed as an angel dramatically lifts the veil of the grieving Mother Mary to meet her risen Son, as the choir sings Alleluia.
