Picture perfect (Good) Friday

Happiness is Visita Iglesia

Visita Iglesia is done during Maundy Thursday when we visit different churches to recite the Stations of the Cross. It is also a time of solemnity, thanksgiving and deep reflection. The above picture of the adoration chapel was taken at the Santa Ana church in 2008.

Our Lenten tradition has evolved through the years. In the early 1990s, we managed to visit 14 churches in one night. Few years down the road, it dwindled to 10 churches. For the past few years, we were lucky if we could visit 7 churches. The traffic situation, the parking problem around the vicinity of churches and/or the large amount of people fulfilling this annual tradition - all contribute to the less number of churches we get to visit in one night.

With my sister now based in Singapore and my dad's difficulty in driving at night, we didn't go for the Visita Iglesia, this year. D & I simply heard Mass where we prayed and gave thanks to the Almighty for his numerous blessings which HE continues to shower upon us.
