Mater Dolorosa. Our sorrowful Mother is the tail of the procession. On Good Friday, the Mater Dolorosa retraces her steps to where everything started, as if reliving the road to Calvary. This ‘return’ - taking the opposite direction of the first procession- is  called the ‘Soledad.’ This takes place around 9PM, after the end of the Good Friday procession. The difference: she goes alone. 16 April 2014 (at st. john the baptist camalig albay)

These acacia trees that lined the old church boundaries seem to watch over my ancestors who built the Parroquia de San Juan Bautista during the Spanish colonial period. My grandparents said that each family brought a number of stones that now make up its foundation. Many heritage churches still have the tombs embedded in its side walls either in the interior or exterior of the church. 15 April 2014 (at St. John The Baptist Church)
