HOLY WEEK, PAMPANGA

Holy Week in the Christian year is the week immediately before Easter. Though, it has a deeper meaning for every catholic people and has their own way of sacrificing, but most of us grab this opportunity to take their vacation leave at work and spent it in different summer places.  
For me, we never forget to go home to our place, my hometown, Agusu, Mabalacat, Pampanga, because, it is important to each of us to witness a tremendous tradition of “Penitensya”. During holyweek, people helping each other to build their Pabasa station. Some donate cash other’s cooked some food to share for those who visits and joined the reading or singing of the holy book (im sorry i have no idea about the book or how do people call about it).

SAINT JUDE PABASA (LALAM ACACIA)

A squad of penitensiya boys from nearby barangay, neighbors and i think of these are probably my relatives, i guess!....







Old women has also the power to sacrifice in this kind of penitence....



THE READERS OR SHOULD I SAY SINGERS...
Halos matatanda talaga ang mga kumakanta sa kanitong pabasa....


check out their tune...... play the video....

 Couldn't imagine, on how people has got the interest in doing such an agony and passion in sacrificing for his forgiveness.....

 




feeling tourist....



Kissing the crucifix in every pabasa station, is their way to thank him and ask for guidance....









This three penitensya men stood up under the sun for almost 3hours starting 12:00nn to 3:00pm..















wooden palaspas....
After a long journey, fresh bath is always the best....





 I think they want to try it when the grow up, atleast they have the interest and be the one on the next generation........





Ang pagpipinitnesya ay hindi biro, ito'y isa sa mga paraan nila upang humingi ng kapatawaran o di kaya ihingi ng tawad ang mga taong may kasalanan... at ang pagsama sa kanilang paglalakbay bilang isang sumusuporta sa kanila ay matatawag ding isang penitensya. Salamat sa ating buong may kapal sa paggabay nya at pagbibigay ng lakas ng katawan upang mapagtagumpayan at mapalampasan itong isang mabigat na pasanin o pagpipinetensya....
