110/365: Sunday Quote and Photograph: Easter

20th of April

The joyful news that He is risen does not change the contemporary world.

Still before us lie work, discipline, sacrifice.

But the fact of Easter gives us the spiritual power to do the work, accept the discipline, sacrifice.

The photograph is taken at “Kamay Ni Hesus” in Lucban Quezon, Philippines where bigger than life-size images of the Passion of Christ is scattered all around the 5-hectare land.  The “Resurrection” is the last station in the group of images depicting the Passion of Christ.

Most people visit this place during the lent but we went here a week earlier before lent. This is where I first observed the “Passion of Christ” prior to doing it during my actual Vicita Iglesia on Good Friday.

I noticed that some people go here without even knowing what this place is for. They just took pictures and treat this as just plain tourist spot or just a place for “photo opps".  I have nothing against taking photos for such beautiful place.  I too is among those who takes advantage of documenting beautiful places by taking souvenir photographs to feature them here.  But I just wish that people would know first the purpose of such place.

  2. I haven't been in Lucban. And you're lucky since your celebration of the Holy Week is in full blast unlike us here where we just content ourselves discreetly observing the lent.
