Crucifixion in the Philippines is a devotional practice held every Good Friday. It is part of the local observance of Holy Week. Devotees or penitents are willingly crucified in imitation of Jesus Christ’s suffering and death. Related practices include carrying wooden crosses, crawling on rough pavement and self-flagellation. However, we can’t think of anything better to do on the Easter Weekend than watching Christians nailing themselves to wooden crosses! For a long time we have wanted to attend a Crucifixion in the Philippines. It was just about as weird as you would expect. People flagellating themselves all over the place, other people carrying crosses, Filipinos dressed up as Roman soldiers. It is like a very strange carnival.
This was filmed at the San Pedro Cutud Lenten Rites. These are a re-enactment of Christ’s Passion and crucifixion held in Barangay San Pedro Cutud, San Fernando, Pampanga.
