Holy Week 2012

Every Maundy Thursday, we go to the Divine Mercy Shrine in Bulacan for the Station of the Cross. This is a tradition that we started 4 years ago.

The first time we went there, I had this very huge belly! I was 6 months pregnant then. The second time, we had an infant in tow. Good thing we went there very early. By the time that the sun is at its merciless, we were on our way home. ^_^

This year, I decided not to bring Amber with us. It was a good decision because we were stuck in a heavy traffic in NLEX and got there more than an hour late than the usual plan. It was already scorching hot by the time we started. Besides, the tot doesn’t want to be disturbed in her sleep. She makes this growling sound every time we try to wake her up early. L

I didn’t take photos of each station for this blog, thinking that we already have each station in our picture files from the years before. Sadly, I couldn’t find those files anymore. Good thing I had this momentary itch to catch some photos from that day.
This is the entrance to the Istasyon ng Krus sa Bukid

Divine Mercy's Stations of the Cross are depicted by life-sized statues. All 15 stations, including the Resurrection of Jesus Christ are carefully arranged around the church's spacious backyard, each about 10-15 steps apart.

After contemplating on Christ's sufferings and death, people line up to freshen themselves with the cold water that comes from this fountain. I have always liked these wooden benches! ^_^ 


  1. If not for traffic, malamang pumasyal din kami. Ganda nga ng wooden benches ha. I think they have that too in one of the Churches I visited in Las Pinas a long time ago.

    1. oo sis, yung sa nature's church sa las pinas, inside moonwalk village sha. ate gay was married there. kaso nasunog yung church one new year's eve. i haven't seen it after it was restored. sana maganda pa rin. sayang yung wooden benches, i hope they were able to salvage them.

  2. uuuuuy. do i sense a baby # 2? belated happy anniv!
