Getting into the Lenten Spirit

Before heading off on the traditional Holy Week break, we thought it would be un-Filipino not to post something about Lent.

We couldn't think of anything we could really write about... which, when we thought about it, was quite disturbing given all the interesting things that happen during Lent (from Bisita Iglesia to Mount Banahaw pilgrimages to family reunions). After all, if there is one time of the year (except Christmas and elections) that defines who we are, certainly it must be Easter.

So, we went on Google and ran across this.

Then I remembered we had the Kristo Exhibit simultaneously being held at 1/of Gallery and Choice Expression Gallery. Curated by Jocelyn Tullao-Calubayan of the UST College of Fine Arts and Design Faculty, this is a group show featuring the works of 60 artists reflecting on the passion of Christ. Proceeds of the sales will benefit A Better Chance (ABC) Foundation, which funds scholarships for underprivileged youth. The show runs until April 14, 2007. Try to catch it, if you can - it's certainly worth a look and reflecting upon.

And finally, I visited one of my favorite websites, and found this great piece. Hope this gets you in a good mood for the Holy Break.

(Advanced) Happy Easter, everyone!
