A Good Friday at Monasterio de Tarlac

We spent our Good Friday at the Monasterio de Tarlac. I was with my whole family. Whole, meaning the four of us - me, my mom, dad and my only brother. It was an impromptu trip with a last minute googling of directions. It was a two-hour drive from Pampanga.

The Monastery is located on a mountain top. An small silver ark houses the actual relic of Christ's cross. It was authenticated by Papal seal, proving that it is the real deal!

It was fitting. To be close to something that He actually touched during His times, something that meant huge to His suffering, something that actually played a role in our salvation.

It was a beautiful chance for reflection... and photo op too!

A beautiful sunny afternoon
It looks like a headdress
He's watching over us

With my Creator :)
Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name. Hebrews 13:15
It is finished. He already died to save us. Let us not punish ourselves in the thoughts of cleansing our sins. He did that already. Be thankful instead and offer a sacrifice of praise.
