Troops billeted in a church during the Philippine Insurrection.
San Pedro Macati, Rizal-1899


The Iglesia de San Pedro de Macati— now dedicated to the honour of Saints Peter and Paul— is one of the oldest churches in the business district of Makati (Macati spelled in the new orthography). The observer may note that the sanctuary is veiled in a dark cloth, and a temporary altar of beaten silver set up in front of it, indicating that this photo must have been taken during Semana Santa.  Note also the rich panoply of liturgical accouterments present, such as the guion/guidon, in the right-hand side.
The Americans call the Philippine-American War an Insurrection; but the Republic had already declared Independence prior to the ratification of the treacherous Treaty of Paris. Regardless, the violence borne by their “benevolent assimilation” is one of American Imperialism’s earliest and best-kept secrets.

I took a cab to the mall earlier to buy some stuff when I saw a puppy—a puppy! A small one, probably not older than two months old— wondering aimlessly in a little island in the middle of the street, and I swear, an ocean of Catholic guilt nearly drowned me for not forcing the cab to stop and pick it up and bring it back home :’( I hope the little furry friend is okay!
