According to an elderly man who was an altar boy at the time, he was serving Mass said by Father Dueñas during the Japanese time at Inarajan Church.
During the Mass, a Japanese soldier came in and kept scolding Father and the altar boys, but they didn't understand what the Japanese was saying. Father Dueñas didn't even look at the soldier, but he paused saying the Mass. All Father did was bow his head and fold his hands.
The soldier gestured that they kill the two candles that were lit on the altar. That's when they understood that the soldier was angry because the American planes could possibly see the light of the two candles inside the church, as it was still dark at that hour. And an altar boy did indeed obey the Japanese and killed the two candles.
But when the Japanese left, content and satisfied, it wasn't five minutes later they lit the candles and Father finished the Mass.
