Fiesta dela Reina de Cavite 2012

Celebrated every 2nd and 3rd Sunday of November in honor of Cavite's Patroness, Nuestra Senora de la Soledad de Porta Vaga,also known as Cavite City fiesta. Caviteños by tradition are very religious people. A fiesta principal is celebrated on the second Sunday of November for the de afuera (literally “outsiders”) or guests and on the third Sunday for families. The fiesta is being celebrated even by the Aglipayan religious sect, thus the icon of Our Lady of Solitude can be seen in the entire City’s Aglipayan Churches.

According to Prof.Genoveva Edroza Matute, a writer in Filipino, stated that the grandiose celebration of the fiesta of San Diego in Rizal's Noli Me Tangere was actually based on the fiesta celebration of Cavite. This miraculous icon of the Virgin of Solitude was canonically crowned on 17 November 1978 by Apostolic Nuncio to the Philippines Most Rev. Bruno Torpigliani, DD, notably during the reign of Pope John Paul II. She was the first Philippine Marian image crowned during his Pontificate. Her image is enshrined at San Roque Church in Cavite City.


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.
