San Isidro Labrador ( FIESTA )

21 05 2009

The FIESTA is the Filipino’s ultimate community expression. It is the community’s eternal moment, when the present is   collectively experienced now, with the past brought to bear now, and future expectations entertained now.   In short,   “eternity in an hour.”

Fiesta  in Pangpang this year means many things. A celebration of the Saint’s feast day( San Isidro Labrador) . Thanksgiving for the Lord’s and the land’s bounty. A testimonial to labor and its fruits. An affirmation of human bonds. A toast to the good life.

the feast of San Isidro Labrador, patron saint of farmers, whose feast day coincided with the coming of the monsoon. He becartle the rain god. San Isidro was ichnographically represented by an ox pulling a plow. Spaniards introduced the carabao and plow to the islands which farmers saw as gifts of their titular saint. No other invention has done more to lighten man’s daily work. Civilization starts with the plow, the reason why the Greeks regarded Triptolemus, its inventor, as the founder of Greece. With the plow, the Filipino graduated from subsistence to surplus farmer, releasing other members of the community for other pursits.
