Holy Week 2008

We spent the holy week in Laguna. It's been our family's tradition to observe the lenten season in our hometown of Santa Cruz where we participate in various church activities.

Last Holy Thursday, we paid a visit and went on a vigil at the adoration chapel and helped in reading the "bihiliya" and after that, we had some photo opp inside and outside the church, lol!

On Good Friday, my family joined in the "Daan ng Krus ng Bayan" which started early in the morning. Unfortunately for me, I wasn't able to join because I wasn't feeling well that morning. My brother took some pictures....

In the afternoon, we joined in the Good Friday Procession where images of the lying Nazareno and grieving Mary were the highlight of the event...

It was a very tiring day but the sacrifices are all worth it.

On Black Saturday, we visited my aunt who recently had an operation. Also later that day, we brought another uncle to the hospital due to difficulty in breathing. Good thing he was never admitted but was sent home after some tests. He was prescribed with lots of medications due to a heart problem and was instructed to visit a cardiologist first thing on Monday.

On Easter Sunday, we went to church for the easter sunday mass with my Dad. In the afternoon, we celebrated the birthdays of my two siblings and a cousin who are all celebrating their birthdays in the month of March. It was followed by our traditional easter egg hunt. Boy! It was fun!
