Last week, I finally had a chance to visit the site where Sta. Filomena (Binan) was laid to rest. Thanks to Binan’s very own, Levi “bigboy” Soledad, who drove us (with his pretty red car) to the cemetery chapel of Binan’s ‘miraculous’ saint. Thanks man.
Big thanks to Nanay Deneng and Lola Generosa “Rosa” Reolada for being patient with our many questions. Marami pong salamat!
Pepe and I plans to go back and interview the “Hipag”, now 85, who’s the only remaining relative that knew Santa Filomena when she was alive. Nanay Deneng and Lola Generosa told us that she knows everything about the saintly life of Sta. Filomena.
It’s my pleasure to join you guys on this quest, hope to join you on numerous others in the future.
Btw, Kuya Kim of Matanglawin featured another “Beata” this morning in Anda, Bohol. I forgot the name of the Beata, but she died 1950’s and there you can see her remains thru a glass panel much the same as what we saw at the back of Sta. Filomena’s altar.
That could be Potencia “Inday” Saranza. I found this link:
The remains, however, are close to “corruptibility”. Hopefully, the three of us could visit Anda, Bohol together.
I’d love to… Kailan? hehehe
