Visiting Biñan’s “Santa Filomena”

At Sta. Filomena Chapel, Binan: Pepito, Arnaldo, Lola Rosa, Nanay Deneng and Levi

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.
