Visitation of Seven Churches is a tradition, more so a “panata” of Catholics during Lenten season. It is done by visiting 7 churches during Holy Thursday. But others visits at any day of the Holy week depending upon their practice.

This custom is well known as Visita Iglesia in the Philippines. Devotees visit 7-14 churches and recite the Stations of the Cross.  While others have their own personal prayer during their visit.

I believe that there is no right or wrong prayers in doing this practice as long as we’re doing this to get close to God and our savior Jesus Christ and remember his sacrifices to save us and grant us mercy and compassion.

Me and my mother-in-law had our short visit to different churches in Pangasinan to pray and realize this Visita Iglesia 2018.

Monasteryo de Tarlac, San Jose, Tarlac

Our first stop is in Monasteryo de Tarlac. It is outside Pangasinan but will surely make you count on God more just as we know that the relic of His cross is in here.
