Filipinos mark Good Friday with whips and nails

from Reuters 3/21/08

Lenlen Pedrosa, an 18-year-old student, crucifies herself in a voluntary ritual to mark the death of Jesus Christ on Good Friday in Kapitangan village in Bulacan province, north of Manila, March 21, 2008. Voluntary crucifixion is the most extreme display of religious devotion in the Philippines, a largely Catholic country in Southeast Asia.

Sa totoo po lamang, ay kailangan pa bang pahirapan ang sarili para malapit sa diyos. Hindi ba sobra na ito? Yung isang ipinako ay pang 16 anim na beses na. Hindi na yata parte ito ng relihiyong Katoliko.
