Hello to all YOU beautiful creation of God, Happy Easter! How was your vacation? I bet you spend it with your family and friends at home; could be by the beach; on a road trip or at the church perhaps doing the "Visita Iglesia". I remember when I was a child, Lent season means church activity. We don't go for a vacation and each year, I look forward for this event and during Holy Week, mom and I spent our time attending masses, did the Way of the Cross, listen to the Seven Last Words of Jesus, and more church activities. My mom is very religious so; she would wake us up at 3 AM, prepared coffee and pandesal (rolls) before we head to church for 4AM Easter mass. I always have a simple, peaceful, and happy recollection of Easter Sunday with my family back home.
This year, I spent the Lent Season at church as well, with my husband. On Holy Week, hubby and I attended the mass, went to the Penance Service, and on Holy Thursday, we attended the Mass of the Lord's Supper. We also went and participated the Stations of the Cross and Passion of Christ on Good Friday. For Holy Saturday, we attended the Easter Vigil Mass and Blessing of Fire which was really a solemn event. The photo above was taken after we attended the 6AM Easter Sunday Mass. Taken along the Indian River, the sunrise above was so beautiful and I couldn't resist not to take a snap of photos. Such a nice reflection of a new day, new beginning and a new life for Easter .... as a Christian. May the light of GOD, shine upon us all, always.
