Lent in the Philippines

Lent in the Philippines, this is the sacred week in the Philippines. Most of the Filipino people remember the death and rebirth of Jesus Christ.

In the other country, it is called as Holy Week. The start of Holy week is Palm Sunday. Every Palm Sunday of the Year, the Catholic Church's priest will bless the palm branches after the mass has ended, Palm leaves symbolizes the Victory and Resurrection.

"When Jesus entered Jerusalem riding upon a donkey, His disciples followed the Roman tradition of placing palm fronds in a conqueror's path and waving palm branches to welcome a triumphant war hero into the city. They apparently believed He was the Messiah who would drive the Romans out of Israel (John 12:12-13). Today, Christians see that His victory was over sin and death and Jesus is often portrayed holding a palm frond as the sign of His triumph over the devil."

After the Palm Sunday it will followed by the next day Holy Monday, Holy Tuesday, Holy Wednesday up to Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Black Saturday and Easter Sunday.

Most of the Filipino People commits during Holy Week. It is called "Senakulo" or Cenacle in english, it is a traditional play of Jesus Christ's passion and death that is staple in most towns and cities. I grab a photo from my cousin's album:

These kids potrayed the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

I believe that the Philippines is still prevailing a Catholic country. with some religion minorities.

Philippine People (Filipino) has a little courtesy goes a long way. Filipinos are a very friendly and hospitable people, sometimes even to a fault. Take the time to smile and say “thank you”, and you’ll receive much better responses. You will receive an even better response if you throw in a little Tagalog, such as “salamat”, which means “thank you”. When talking to the people older than you in Filipino, it is greatly appreciated to include “po” in your sentences such as “salamat po”. In the countryside and in some urban homes, footwear is removed when entering a home, though they may make an exception for foreigners. The key is to look around before entering any home. If you see footwear just outside the door, more than likely the family’s practice is to remove footwear before entering. If you wear socks, you don’t have to remove them. Although if you don’t remove them they will be very dirty. - Sikat ang Pinoy
