I have missed attending the 9 dawn masses before Christmas. I’ve attended the 9 dawn masses a couple of times before my married life. Since I went to the USA and came back here in the Philippines I stopped going to those 9 dawn masses before Christmas. I remember those days, it was really hard to wake up so early for 9 consecutive dawns in a row to attend the mass. To avoid standing up the entire mass we need to go to the church earlier than the mass started so that the chairs church not occupied by the people who attending the mass too. There are really lots of people who attend those 9 dawn masses before Christmas. Yes it’s hard but it’s really worth at the end.
