Good Friday in the Philippines

Yesterday, Good Friday here, many devoted Catholics did their rituals again by imitating the suffering and death of Jesus Christ on the cross. Such practices, although not formally endorsed by the Roman Catholic Church, are carried out as part of religious vows in return for favors granted or in penance for sins. But I have not seen nor heard such practices here in Davao. We only have here like visiting the way of the cross and or attending the mass and listens the seven last words of Jesus. Watch the video.
