Taguig LGU opens ‘Life of Christ’ park for Holy Week

The local government of Taguig City opened "Life of Christ" - a park that gives Taguigueños a place to reflect and pray during the Lenten season.

The Taguig LGU said residents could reflect on Jesus' passion, death, and resurrection on different corners of the park that features The Stations of the Cross, Prayer Corner and Prayer Boxes, and art installations.

A black interactive cross installation is also situated in the middle of TLC Square where visitors can write their sins as well as bad habits on black paper and nail them individually on the cross.

Mayor Lani Cayetano hoped that Taguigueños would focus on being grateful for the greatest sacrifice of Jesus Christ who saved us from our sins.

"I also encourage the younger generation to study and experience the Passion of the Christ, especially at this time, when our youth are going through so many trials," Cayetano said in a press release.

The city government installed 14 panels, which represent the 14 stations, each containing a bible verse, a reflection, and an activity or a question.

Meanwhile, Senator Alan Peter Cayetano asked Taguig residents and local officials to remember two very simple commandments to have a more meaningful Holy Week.

"Love God with all our hearts, spirit, and mind above everything and everyone,... and love yourself and love others as you love yourself," the lawmaker said.

The Life of Christ is open from April 4 until April 9 from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. — DVM, GMA Integrated News
