Lent Post (Yep UBER late edition)




Since I chose to take a rest for the remainder of the Holy week, I was not able to take even ONE picture of the event... ehe... yes, silly me.  Then I chanced upon my 2012 photos which I haven't published and have been sitting in my blog's drafts.  

Old as they may seem, well at least they are in the 'season' so-to-speak'.  Do view some of my early adventures with my Nikon 5100 friend and pardon the blood... teheeee.

Reminder though, this is a photo-blog article.  Not much words, just photos after photos of this world-renown tradition in our country.

  3. This is just wrong... people doing such things.. I don't know.. i think praying is a better way to repent from our own sins.

  4. "Mahina talaga ako" when it comes to the sight of blood, let alone people who are into flagellation during holy week.

  7. Penitensya is one of those things that happen during Holy Week, I do not like seeing flagellated flesh because they don't really have to do it.

  8. penitensya, why? I don't think people should do this. Why not do good deeds all year round and no need to hurt yourslef.

  9. I also don't like this practice. They don't have to do it. What for? Jesus already did it for us.

  11. This is blasphemy. We can never outdo what Christ did for us on the cross!

  12. Though I don't think it's a good way of penitence, I still want to watch it LIVE!

  13. Looking at those people who sacrifice themselves so that the tradition still be alive. I guess, its all in the hearts and mine to offer themselves to God.

  14. I don't agree with people hurting themselves, just make other sacrifices like helping the poor, etc.
