TACLOBAN CITY – Graceful queens with their escorts, religious artifacts, and decorated arches once again graced the streets of Tacloban City during a procession honoring the Blessed Virgin Mary despite the bad weather.

Santacruzan is a prominent religious event held in many Philippine villages and cities to culminate the month-long Flores de Mayo celebration. It refers to a flower procession held in May to commemorate the fabled event in which Queen Helena, Constantine the Great's mother, searched for the Holy Cross on which Jesus was crucified. —itacloban
