Omalo youth leaders pray the rosary for creation
By Myrna Bermudo
Youth leaders of Omalo mission station in Lagonoy, Camarines Sur participated in the Living Rosary for Creation on October 11.
They brought Philippine native tree seedlings to represent the five decades of the mysteries of the Holy Rosary.
Arranging the seedlings in the form of a rosary, one seedling is placed in the middle of the chapel as a Hail Mary is prayed.
The Living Rosary was part of the culminating activity for the closing of the Season of Creation and of October devotion to Our Lady of the Rosary.
