This Old Church

 

This old church in Basey Samar in the middle of a crowded and peopled community lays a holy place built centuries ago.  I was amazed with the structure itself, the way it was built and the way it was situated near this body of water.  Some locals say that the bell tower of the church serves as sighting position for incoming vessel be it visitors or enemies during the war.

 

As we explore the surroundings, we noticed the damaged through years.  But the devotees preserved the place.  Even mass is on set during Sundays, but unlike other churches it only has one mass per Sunday. 

 

 

The church’s altar was eminently secured by the people.  It feels like you have traveled to the past while inside the church. 

 

 

The way up was challenging because of its ruins / damaged parts but surely secured by people managing the church by educating the visitors to its danger.

 

 

When we reach the top, it was worth the danger that we have had to get through.  The overlooking surrounding was 360 degrees.  The waters that try to hand signal us closer to her.  The wind that touches our skin with ocean breeze was even more relaxing.  Whoa…..that was amazing.
