Slide10 (Small)
I liked how the images were dressed...simple plus they made full use of the fabrics with all the drapes and color tones achieved...I honestly come to Pasig yearly to see their Spanish style Dolorosa in her huge silver carroza...but seeing this other Dolorosa they are using (for the 2nd year since last year)...I did not feel disappointed. Instead I am inspired.

Although it's sad that they are no longer using the Spanish Dolorosa since the owner is abroad. I wonder if the owner can't entrust the image for now...sayang lang I am imagining the image in a dark room right now...

Slide11 (Small)
The Seven Sorrows of Mary. First stop. Prophecy of Simeon, Presentation of the child Jesus in the temple.

Second and Third Stop. The Flight into Egypt and the Loss of Jesus in the Temple

Slide14 (Small)
Fourth Stop. Mary meets Jesus on the way to Golgotha

Slide16 (Small)
Mary became our mother as well through Jesus. When Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing near, he said to his mother, "Woman, behold, your son!" Then he said to the disciple, "Behold, your Mother!" And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.

Slide17 (Small)
Pinoy Ingenuity. This "kariton" loaded with speakers is very efficient. The quality of the sound, especially the beautiful marian hyms sung by the choir is not diminished even though we are in open road. Galing! Plus the "Manangs" are high tech using cordless microphones...

I just have to mention that the choirs sung beautifully. I especially love the hymn that was sung at the fourth stop. I closed my eyes and I felt like I am in Vatican attending the Pope's easter mass.
