Traditionally, the Visita Iglesias or Church Visitation requires seven churches but I kinda like the 8 which is the symbol of infinity. So at 10:00 in the morning, I started the car and proceeded to Our Lady of Guadalupe Church then to The Alliance of Two Hearts Parish.

As it was almost lunchtime, we decided to drop by at a nearby fast food restaurant. After a sumptuous lunch of Fish Escabeche, Vegetables, Pansit and some soup, we then went to the Sacred Heart Parish (Church # 3), the church where I received my first Holy Communion when I was seven years old, then we went to the nearby Archbishop's Palace where the San Pedro Calungsod Shrine (Church # 4) is located.

These past years, we made it a point to visit Cebu's main churches so we went to the Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral (Church # 4), the church where I was baptized, and the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño (Church # 6).

With two more to go, we agreed to go to the churches where we usually hear Mass on Sundays. These were the St. Joseph Parish or the Mabolo Church (Church # 7) and the San Roque Parish Church (Churh # 8).
Our day's spiritual commitment was over by 2:00 pm so we drove home happy and fulfilled.
