Filipinos celebrate another Christmas under the shadow of the coronavirus pandemic. Despite more relaxed health protocols, the celebrations were still subdued, with fewer people attending the midnight Masses.

In the University of the Philippines’ Church of the Holy Sacrifice in Quezon City, parish priest Bong Tupino presented the image of the Child Jesus to the faithful during the Mass, but prohibited the traditional kissing or “pahalik” to prevent the spread of COVID-19. (Photos by Jire Carreon)
