Flagellants and Lenten Rites (Paombong, Bulacan)
Flagellants and Lenten Rites
(Held during Good Friday)
Paombong, Bulacan

Festival
A way of repentance and sharing in the sufferings of Christ, worshippers whip themselves or have themselves crucified at Kapitangan, Paombong during the Holy Week. Also, religious rituals are celebrated in all the towns especially in Malolos, Plaridel and Pulilan. Families with old life-size "Santos" bring them out during this time to be part of the colorful processions on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. On Easter Sunday, a little wooden angel (or a live little girl) descends from the Galilee to take off the virgin's mourning veil.
