Holy week in spanish is Semana Santa and Holy week in tagalog is Mahal na Araw. Mahal na Araw because this week is valuable, important and for Jesus Christ. Let us talk about how Manilenyo celebrate Holy week in Manila. When holy week starts catholics in Manila are more visible in churches and they take fasting or they avoid eating meat such as pork and beef. The catholics have this activity which is Visita Iglesia, this means they must visit 14 churches within their area by just simply walking. You can see many Manilenyos and people from other provinces in the streets to visit churches. You will also observe that some Filipinos are doing pasyon, where many group of Filipinos are singing the journey of Jesus Christ. When Good Friday comes or Biyernes Santo in tagalog, Manila is the place where many people visit because of the icon of Nazareno from Quiapo church will be visible along Quiapo area. The icon of Nazareno shows Jesus carrying the cross. It is really essential to reflect, ask forgiveness, and do more kindness this time of the year.
