A devotee and her religious articles for the blessing.

Every Black Saturday (Lent), people bring religious articles such as figurines, rosaries and Bibles during the mass for blessing by the priest. Later on, it became a tradition that blessing of items like candles, matches, bottles of water or oil and containers of rice or salt will also provide bountiful graces from God.
