I’m not a devoted Christian as I would like to be, but at the least I try to do something religious during the Holy Week instead of just planning a “non-religious vacation” like I use to. This is my Holy Week 2013 in pictures.
Palm Sunday : For the longest time I thought these palms leaves are used to ward of evil spirits or hungry ghosts…ignorant me. I know now that these palm leaves are actually bought to commemorate the entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem. We brought this to church on Palm Sunday to be blessed by the priest, afterwards hung them anywhere inside or outside our home.
Good Friday : Husband and I attended the ecumenical Stations of the Cross at Saint Pio Chapel in Libis. This chapel has built several crosses of different sizes for you to carry while walking the 14 stations set up in the empty driveway at the church. This created the feeling and ambiance that quite resembles the time when Christ was crucified. I’ve seen children as young as about 8 years old took part in this, and some people even tried walking barefoot too . ( I only took two pictures because I didn’t want to disturb the people praying inside. )
Black Saturday : I spent time at home preparing food for Easter Sunday as my family will be coming over. I made my daughter’s favorite sweet korean chicken and my newly invented taro-coconut pudding. Yeah the pudding doesn’t look very nice but they are actually very creamy and deliciously baked in the coconut shell. ( I can’t think of any garnish or decoration to make it look more appealing than this one in the right photo.)
Easter Sunday : Spent time resting at home with my family, eating, eating, and eating.
How was your Holy Week?
