Headline: ASIA/PHILIPPINES – The pandemic does not stop the traditional mass at dawn for the Christmas novena

Manila – In the midst of the pandemic, Filipino Catholics have poured into churches for the famous Filipino Christmas tradition: the “Simbang Gabi” or “Misa del Gallo”, the mass celebrated at dawn for nine days, which begins on December 16th and ends on December 24th. At 4.00 in the morning the church bells began to ring, and thousands of faithful, while trying to respect the anti-Covid protocols, were already there to listen to the call to the entrance in the church, allowed to a limited number of people.
