October 24 is St. Raphael’s Day

St. RaphaelLast year, i briefly wrote about St. Raphael’s feast day falling on the 24th of October…that is today.

Yes, inspite of milenyo’s aftermath and still out of electric power, for the past nine nights, the residents (the devout catholics at least!) of Brgy. Payawin, Gubat, Sorsogon (my birthplace) has been religiously attending the novena and procession that culminated with a concelebrated mass this morning.

Señor San Raphael, as we fondly call him is one of God’s archangels.

In his mortal life, he was a fisherman that was able to miraculously heal a sick child named Tobias using fish-bile.

Thereby in sainthood he is particularly known as the healer of the sick and companion to the traveller.

That explains why an image of St. Raphael is always one with a fish hook and fish and sometimes with the young child Tobias.

Legend has it too that on the dawn of his feast day there always is a light rainshower that stops before sunrise, because that’s the kind of weather he loves best to go fishing.

Like it did exactly this morning!! ;-)

In this photo is the image in our barrio’s small church.

Laom mi Raphael na kaherakan an samong mga kaipuhan…

(We hope Raphael that you will be merciful to our needs…)

The prayer couldn’t be more timely as now!

The young, energetic,dynamic Hon.Gov. L-Ray Villafuerte developed Caramoan as prime Eco Tourism destination in Camarines Sur. He established world class resort in Gota which is now attracting a lot of tourist all over the world. He revolutionalized the Tourism by making Cam Sur as the number 1 tourist destination in Bikol. CWC(Camarines Sur Wakeboarding Center) as the number 1, Caramoan as the 2nd place and 3rd is the Donsol Whale Shark interaction as the 3rd place (according to Deparetment of Tourism data of influx of domestic and foreign tourist in the Bikol region. Anywhy,Caramoan peninsula still retained its adventure,backpacking and outdoor appeal because of the environmental
    efforts of the Governor L-Ray Villafuerte to regulate, preserve and conserve the natural beauty of the place. It did not turn into Boracay type atmosphere which more of the conservationis and environmentalists concerns…Caramoan peninsula is still hidden, far and still unexplored and mysterious as it used to be.

    1983-1998-local Mountaineers( us as a part of it ),backpackers,campers and outdoor enthusiasts came in caramoan to explore,discover, hike and camp at the best islands,beaches, caves and mountains.
    1983-2004-Former Governor and now Hon .congressman of 2ND District of Camarines Sur-Luis R.Villafuerte promoted the caramoan extensively by promotional ads,in trade fair,magazines, photo contests,etc.to the world.

    Dear Gloria,

    Hello. I’m a Gubatnon, too. I was born in Manook St. Gubat. I have not been in gubat for such a long time since my parents moved to Manila. Now, I live in Japan.

    I miss Gubat so much, because I grew up there with my grandmothers care. With the internet, I now have contact with my relatives there.

    Pinoy travel blog is great! Looking forward to photos and stories/experiences…

    I would like to link your site to my blog, for my Japanese friends who also want to visit the Philippines. However, I can’t find the blogs RSS/XML address. If it will be alright to link your blog, may I please know your rss address?

    Thanks a lot in advance and best regards.

    Sincerely,
    Nene
