In the Philippines, Holy Week is a sacred holiday, as it is to all Catholics in the world. This is a photo I took while I went back in my hometown, on top of a fence after the 2-kilometer procession. The “Santo Entierro”, is the last image the people will carry inside the church. The “Santo Entierro” is an image of Jesus lying down in a transparent, glass and casket-like container (that is bigger in person). Waves of people struggle to get its flowers hanging on the sides, believing it would give them some blessing. For others, they get them for no particular reason.
This year was strict, with it, the image passed through peacefully. A few wild teens still struggled to get the flowers, but the image was still as grand as it was as I grew up.
