Crucifixion

Once again in The Philipines as ABS-CBNNEWS.COM report

Enaje will reprise his role least year as the main Kristo. He will reenact the via crucis or Christ’s way of the cross, complete with whippings and the weeping women of Jerusalem.


He has been nailed to the cross 16 times. The Sangalang brothers have been crucified 14 times and Velez 15. ……..Six-inch, stainless-steel nails will be driven by hammers through the palms and in some cases through the feet of some of the penitents as they are hoisted for some 20 minutes on the crosses.

Not my idea of remembering Jesus death, but the pictures certainly make you realise how aweful Jesus death was. It was not at all sanitised like the other picture
