At early stage of her life, we taught Alex to be prayerful. She can memorize the basic prayers like Our Father, Hail Mary, Angel of God, Grace before Meal and Glory be. She somehow can utter some words of the Apostle Creed. Most importantly, we tried to make her understand that the Easy way to get something is to pray Hard.
Panaad or Panata is the time for us adults to spend time for reflection and prayers together with the family. And we in the family have made it an annual practice. The Carmelite Monastery was our favorite destination during Holy Thursday. But this time we decided to go for a change. We chose to have our Stations of the Cross at the Divine Mercy Shrine, El Salvador City.
This was Alex's second time to go to the Divine Mercy Shrine but it does looked like her first time seeing some new scenes and buildings and she even wanted to stay there a bit longer on a tent. Probably next time around.
It was a fun moment with the family.
