Holy Week in Black & White


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Last week, the whole Christian world celebrated the Holy Week to commemorate the life and Passion of Jesus. The  Philippines as a Christian nation joined the celebration, but because I’m in Cambodia right now I cannot be in the Philippines to catch the bloody action of the flagellants. But luckily I have stocked up some photos from the past events to post here.

If you are wondering why we do this, it is because some of the devout Filipinos do this to repent for their sins or to gain the favor of the lord and grant their wish. Also, I believe that this is a product of the indiginization of a western culture to fit the world view of our society which can be translated as “No Pain, No Gain”.
