Activities for the Holy Week

There are a lot of things that you can do during the Holy Week. Those who are practicing the Catholic faith observe some Lenten traditions such as church visit, station of the cross, Pabasa and similar other activities. Some observe fasting and spiritual retreat for healing and spiritual direction. I’m not familiar with retreat houses, which you can visit this Lenten season, maybe you check with your parish priest about retreat houses.

For relatives who are physically unwell to visit different churches can still observe the Lenten activities by watching Visita Iglesia (http://visitaiglesia.net/html/visita_iglesia.html) and Pasyon
(http://visitaiglesia.net/html/pasyon.html) from the following links. Since its holiday next week, you can also surprise them with chocolate get well gifts.

Visita Iglesia Online

I haven’t tried visiting churches or the traditional Visita Iglesia during the Holy Week, so glad the Catholic Church particularly the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has put up an online site dedicated to people – who might not have a chance or the physical ability to leave their homes to visit different churches this lenten season.

There are at least 5 churches being featured by the site. You can check out the link within this post to begin your journey and reflections on the Stations of the Cross…
