One of my regular visits to Ilocos is this time of the year. Not only because it is the Holy Week but also to spend time with my family. I arrived yesterday morning by bus and I was surprised to know that the fare for super deluxe bus (of Maria De Leon Trans) is now Php 850.00. The last time I paid, about two years ago, it was only at Php 500.00 or so. On second thought, this is better than taking the plane (it is more expensive!) or using the car especially when you’re alone (it is deadly boring!). Its Good Friday yesterday and this was the time when Jesus Christ died on the cross. I have witnessed the procession of the Roman Catholic Church of Laoag City and as in any other procession around the country; it chronicles the death of Jesus Christ. I was with my nephew, 6-year old Jordan.More than looking at the statues of saints and the body of Jesus Christ dead, I wanted him to know why we Filipinos remember Holy Week and how and why Jesus died. He was aware of what was going on and when I asked him if Jesus will live again, he said, “Yes, Tito, after three days!” I asked him how did he know and he said his Lola Salin (my mom) told him so. From that moment, I told myself that even if I did not get the picture I wanted, my day ended well because Jordan knew something about our Jesus Christ. That was enough for me on Good Friday.
