Cutud Lenten Rites - Pampanga
March 29, 2002

 

San Fernando, Pampanga - Prayer takes on a different meaning during the Lenten Season, when villagers of San Pedro, Cutud, engage in the act of self-flagellation. This ancient ritual is performed on the morning of Good Friday during the Holy Week. Back, arms and legs are cut and then struck with burillo whips. The climax to this occassion happens at mid-day, when penitents are literally nailed to their waiting crosses.

 

Moriones Festival - Marinduque
March 24-31, 2002


Boac, Marinduque - The Island of Marinduque prides itself on being the "Lenten Capital of the Philippines", and it is easy to understand why. Come the seven days of Holy Week, the people of this island take part in this age-old ritual of the "Moriones". Colorful warrior costumes are worn topped with finely carved masks depicting the fierce Roman's soldiers of Christ's time. All these are done to depict the story of Longinus, the centurion who pierced Jesus' side--and his subsequent beheading.
