Visita Iglesia (2013): Part 2 of 4

Another interesting thing about joining the Holy Week rituals being done is witnessing the things they do firsthand. A good example is the Senakulo, a dramatic portrayal of the Passion of Christ. It is a widespread practice in the Philippines usually criticized for its sometimes too graphic depiction of Christ’s sufferings amongst other things. In one of the churches we visited, we were lucky enough to watch a short dramatic segment of the show before moving on to the next destination.
