Hi Mel, this coming Sunday is Palm Sunday and that starts the Holy week. I tried to shun from using too much of Facebook, but I will do some blog hop and blogging. I will choose all the movie, music, readings that I am going to do this week. More bible readings for me and hubby to share. I also set our dining table according to the celebration next week. I will watch again the Passion of the Cross movie. And I will ask hubby to go to Detroit to visit one Monastery there. I am excited for the next week event in our church too. And oh by the way, this coming Good Friday I am going to donate my blood (Red Cross) I hope I am okey now the last time I tried to donate I was rejected since I just came from the Philippines at that time and Philippines was listed in there list to have malaria lol!! So na deadma ang beauty ko hehe.
By the way, check my blogs you are my 6th Featured blogger this week! Congrats!!

Lent is so much different there compared here. Over here it is more into fun than reflection. We do observe it here at home though. Fridays are fish Fridays on us and we also attend station of the cross in church.

Hi KIm,
You have such a wonderful schedule of events during the Holy Week culminating in your donation of blood to the Red Cross. Yes, I already visited your blogs and was so amazed by the tribute you gave me. I really appreciate and am thankful for that but as always, TO GOD BE THE GLORY. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Hi Rose,
It's great that you still observe the traditional Holy Week activities there as we do it here in the Phils. You are right in saying that ours are more solemn and reflective of the suffering of Jesus Christ. Celebration of Lent there centers around the Easter feast and the traditional Easter bunny egg hunt. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

yung lenten season kasi dito sa US d uso...unless kung catholic...yan ang na notice ko kuya.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Dhemz,
Yes, people there are more interested in the Easter egg hunt than observing solemn rituals like what we do in the Phils. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.
