There was a private cemetery across the street which we also had a look at.
A lot of the cemeteries have "houses" built over the graves. The RCC Filipinos worship their dead. On All Saints Day in November, some families gather at the graves of their loved ones and spend time together there.
There is also a Chinese cemetery in Manila which we drove through once. The Chinese also worship their ancestors, and this is reflected in the gravesites.
There were altars at each grave as well as seating inside the buildings for families who gather there.
As believers in Jesus Christ, we confess:
"For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain."
"Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord...."
"For I know that my redeemer liveth.... And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God."
