What the women of San Andres Bukid are performing is the 'Adoration for Duterte's Conversion,' said Juanita 'Nenet' Dano of the Good Shepherd Sisters.
With nothing to offer but her strong faith, Dano proposed that they meet weekly for an adoration, 'which is the second most powerful form of prayer, after the Mass.'
(In all three of Cigoli's paintings, the two Adorations and the Deposition, "Cigoli, like Galileo, attributed secondary light to the earth and to whatever clouds clustered about the lunar body".) In further emphasis the diagonals of the painting focus the viewer's eye on the moon, as does the gesture toward the moon of the turbaned figure of Nicodemus and the position of Christ's left arm directly above it.
The moon in Cigoli's Adoration of the Shepherds (1599) antedates changes in Galileo's ideas.
