MANILA - The first batch of the blessing of palm fronds has just ended in Quiapo Church, following the tradition of Jesus entering Jerusalem this Palm Sunday.
Devotees flocked to Plaza Miranda to have their palm fronds blessed.
Around Quiapo Church, sellers of palm fronds also came in big numbers, selling them for P20 each.
According to seller Esperanza Borbor, it has been a long time since they have increased the price of palm fronds.
Buyers may haggle the price down to P15 if three or more palm fronds will be purchased.
After selling today, sellers will remain near the church to sell Stations of the Cross until Good Friday.
