After experiencing it for the first time last year, I made a commitment to myself that it will be my yearly devotion from then on. And I am very happy that this year I was able to fulfill it again.
Walking the Way of the Cross is such a humbling experience for me. Knowing how Jesus walked and carried the cross to Calvary is a testament of how He really loved us to do it in such a way. My Visita Iglesia experience this year which took me from Cavite to Manila and all the way to my very own Laguna cannot be compared to what Jesus experienced in His time. Although the travel that I took was long and tiring it was still incomparable with the pain and hardships that He experienced. And the fulfillment and the experience of somehow imitating His journey with the cross is very spiritually rewarding.
So here’s my Visita Iglesia journey this year that took me to the 3 provinces of Cavite, Metro Manila and my own Laguna.
