Way of the Cross… A Passion and Photography, in observance of the holy week.
After visiting the two beautiful and interesting churches, we head our way to the 3rd church on the list.
3rd stop: Sta. Rita Church, Sta. Rita
St. Rita Church in Santa Rita – has a relic of St. Rita. This relic has a piece of the saint’s body either a bone, a hair or lock of hair or a piece of flesh. Saint Rita’s relic in this church is from her flesh. Her intact and incorruptible body is kept in Cascia Italy.
Since I’ve failed to shot the outside beauty of this church, let me show you the set of shots taken inside this church, in return. Here’s the top window of St. Rita Church.

After shooting from our 3rd destination, we proceed to the next and final church on the list.
Next Stop: San Agustin Church, Lubao
San Agustin Church is one of the oldest churches in Pampanga. This is where the marriage of President Arroyo’s eldest son was held eight years ago. Other famous “Lubenians” include educator Alejandro Quiboloy, movie stars, Rogelio and Jaime dela Rosa, the movie director, Gregorio Fernandez, actor Rudy Fernandez.
Here’s a back to back shot taken inside the San Agustin Church. The normal view from the entrance.

After visiting the four historic churches in Pampanga, we had our way to Cutud to witness the reenactment of Christ’s Passion and Crucifiction.
Heading our way to where the cross stands is not an easy one. Under the extreme heat of the sun and long kilometer walk, these were just some of the factors that will put your body and patience to the test. (Not to mention the blood splattering from people whose taking Penitensya that walks with you)
Maleldo – The famous San Pedro Cutud Lenten observance in this city, which has attracted thousands of spectators, including tourists from different country.
The Crucifiction… The moment and highlight of this event.
