Novenas and other memorabilla (Soledad Series - Part 2)

September 3

The upper part of the photo shows a Retablito or a small retablo. Retablo means a little altar or where a religious icon is placed. The lower part shows a framed novena. Inscribed in it is a photo of Our Lady of Soledad de Porta Vaga, Prayers and hymns.

Novenas and other documents

More religious memorabilia of the Our Lady enclosed on a glass case inside the Marian Exhibit in San Francisco de Asis Parish, General Trias, Cavite. Below is the Hymn to the Our Lady of Porta Vaga entitled Reina de Cavite or Queen of Cavite

Reina de Cavite per siempre seras:
Es prenda tu nombre de jubilo y paz:
Reina de Cavite por siempre seras;
Es prenda tu nombre de jubilo y paz.
Madre Immaculada, prez del serafin,
Luz de Filipinas, protegenos sin fin:
Luz de Filipinas, protegenos sin fin.
