In Observance of the Lenten Season (Prelude to Summer 2009 Escapes)

In observance of the Lenten Season, OLANOLOGY took time to commemorate the essence of this Season. For many nowadays, the Holy Week becomes the perfect time to go off the beach, mountain camping, out of town trips or simply vacationing. Evindently, the true meaning of this season has slowly taken for granted. It has slowly forgetten.
In my part having been raised in a strict Catholic family, i still believe right until today that LENTEN SEASON should and must be the moment for real contemplation and pervent prayer. A moment to be silent, to communicate to our soul and to talk to our God.

So just this very evening, together with my Mom and Cousins, we visited 7 churches here in Davao City as our sincere way of commemorating the Passion, Death and Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. This church visits is traditionally called:


Our Lady of Lourdes Church
NHA, Bangkal, Davao City

Adoration Chapel of the Pink Sisters
Catalunan Grande, Davao City

THIRD CHURCH:St. Paul Church
Juna Subdivision, Matina, Davao City

St. Jude Thaddeus Church
Malvar St., Davao City

Our Lady of Assumption Church
F. Torres St., Davao City

Christ The Redemptorist Church
J. P. Laural Avenue, Davao City

Sta. Ana Church
Sta. Ana Avenue, Davao City

Having done VISITA IGLESIA, I felt extremely good about myself. It feels great that inspite the changes of time and the call of modern world, observing the Holy Week in a traditional way gives more meaning to the essence of this commemoration!

To one and all, a blessed and meaningful LENTEN SEASON!

nice post about the real essence of the lenten season..

You're right there that most of us (even in other religions) are not anymore valuing the paschal mysteries of Jesus..

It is so sad always to know that this is really happening especially in the "catholic dominated country" like the Philippines.

It is a refreshing feeling as well that there is somebody that keeps on reviving the meaning of lent..and it's you! Keep inspiring people!

God bless! Happy Easter and Mabuhay ka!

hehehe..nice post and blog as well!
