To many Filipinos, the Holy Week is a season of reflection and repentance. Our faith reminds us to emulate the love of God and value the sacrifice made by Jesus which allowed us to be saved.
With prayer and quiet introspection, we can contemplate on our actions and let go of any burdens by forgiving and asking for forgiveness.
