Lenten 2014: The Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes

For many people, the Holy Week means a lot of different things—from vacation to visiting churches.  While I don’t observe the holidays in the traditional manner, I still opt to keep away from merry socials.  This year though I did something different from past few year’s Visita Iglesia.

Visita Iglesia 2013

Visita Iglesia 2011

Visita Iglesia (Spanish: church visits) is a tradition here in the Philippines of visiting seven churches on Maundy Thursday as penance.  Some people expand it to 14 churches with each one representing the Stations of the Cross.  For this year I decided to start including this in my Holy Week habit but unfortunately I didn’t know that it should be on a Thursday, so ended up doing it on a Saturday, with an unexpected extra two churches!
