THE FILIPINO RELIGIOSITY

The one gift for which the Filipinos are eternally grateful to Spain was the latter''s introduction to the Philippines of the Christian Religion. By the act, the Spaniards established in the Filipinos the bedrock of FAITH in an Almighty personal God. By the Christian faith have the Filipinos lived, and in it have they died for the last four hundred years.
If one were to observe a typical Filipino Catholic from the time he gets uo in the morning to the time he goes to bed at night, one would see him make the sign of the Cross before rising, cross himself with water before he pours it on himself for the morning bath, cross himself before eating his breakfast and before leaving the house for the day''s affairs. At night before retiring, he ends the day with a final sign of the Cross.
Athletes and entertainers cross themselves before every performance to implore God''s help, inspiration and guidance. Such natural and spontaneous religiosity is the mark of a God-fearing and God-loving Filipino. His religiousness shows his utter humility and acknowledgement of God''s power and Love. It indicates his dependence on God the way a child looks up to his father for love and comfort. In times of success or joy, the Filipino gives thanks to God. In times of pain and suferring, he cries out to God for help and consolation. And finally at the hour of his death, he calls for a priest for the Last Rites.
