:: INCREDIBLE FUNERAL!         

The world has not seen such collective sorrow drawn out to 12 hours of mournful marching. Under sun and rain, along 30 kilometers of asphalt streets beginning  at Sto. Domingo church in Quezon City where concelebrated funeral mass was said at 9 a.m. through espana in Sampaloc district through Quezon Blvd, past Plaza Miranda and over Quiapo bridge, through Liwasang Bonifacio, along City hall to the Luneta, winding down through Roxas Blvd. 

turning at Buendia and emptying into the south expressway and into Sucat, Paranaque for the final rites at the Manila memorial park at 9 p.m. 

Two million lined the streets. Many more listened to Catholic Radio Veritas, the one and only station that dared to report it, from beginning to end, later the funeral was to be reported to the Guinness book of records and then featured in the U.S. tv show "That's Incredible!"
