Philippines is the only Christian country in Asia and we quite take pride in it that we hold holy week a serious religious obligation. Although, I may for most Christians, holy week is an opportunity for long fun vacation from stressful work or household chores. Irregardless of how Filipinos make use of the holy week, the church has offered different schedules for masses and other religious assemblies to commemorate the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Most of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW, however, are not lucky enough to observe their Christian faith. Thus, Jesuit priests Johnny Go and Francis Alvarez along with other Jesuits had created an online retreat and recollection entitled "The Fugitives of Lent" for OFWs and anyone who may seek comfort and wisdom from the religious and the community.
So, when you think you need more than attending the regular mass or simply want to have dynamics in hearing the words from the Bible, feel free to access Visita Iglesia online and make your holy week more meaningful and interactive.
