An exhilarating moment it certainly was for the faithful in Balangiga town, Eastern Samar, at dawn on Sunday when one of three historic church bells was rung for the first time in 117 years to usher Simbang Gabi at the San Lorenzo de Martir Church. The bells were finally returned last week after decades of tireless efforts to get them back to the Philippines.

PHILIPPINE CHURCH HASN'T HEARD THESE BELLS ON CHRISTMAS DAY FOR 117 YEARS
After waiting more than a century for the United States to return a trio of church bells looted during the Philippine-American war, a Catholic parish on the Philippines island of Samar will finally be able to ring them again. The Balangiga bells were handed over to officials this week and will spend a few days on display at a national museum before making their way home to the Church of San Lorenzo de Martir , where they originally hung before US forces took them as spoils of war following a 1901 massacre.
