Just like the Holy Week of the past years, this year was no different as I commemorate it with church visits. This year though, I did not use my GPS tracker as I walked practically the entire way. Here’s my route this year.
Visiting churches had become my tradition every Holy Week and this year is no different. This time though, I did not go for numbers and instead picked seven churches that I really am fond of.
Like in the past years, the Lenten Season again brought me around the city of Manila to visit 14 churches. I didn’t deviate much from my Visita Iglesia last year, but I did it this year on a Good Friday.
Visiting multiple churches during Holy Week, also known as Visita Iglesia, had become a tradition of mine for the last few years and this year I had the chance to revisit some of the most beautiful and revered churches in the country. Here are the 14 churches I had visited this Lenten season.
For many people, the Holy Week means a lot of different things—from vacation to visiting churches. While I don’t observe the holidays in the traditional manner, I still opt to keep away from merry socials. This year though I did something different from past few year’s Visita Iglesia.
The low pressure area prevailing over the Visayas and Mindanao region had made the seas more wavy than the usual making our trip from Tagbilaran to Cebu much, much longer. The rains had not stopped either, but our spirits weren’t dampen.
We left Panglao Island with smiles on our faces but deep inside us we wished we could stay much longer. But time was not on our side and we’re off to Tagbilaran to catch our ferry back to Cebu. Little that we know that the province still has one last pleasant surprise for us.
Like many Filipinos, I commemorated this year’s Holy Week with a visit to various churches. I realized that I wasn’t able to do this last year, so this year it’s a must that I outdo the shortcomings of the previous year.
Belated happy Easter! This year I wasn’t able to do any run during Holy Week, and I wasn’t able to do my Visita Iglesia, but this Easter after visiting a nearby church to give thanks, I had thought of doing a quick photowalk and perhaps see at least seven churches along the way.
