Filipino devotees re-enact crucifixion of Christ

Penitents flagellate themselves as part of Lenten observance in Angeles City, Pampanga province, north of Manila on April 17, 2014.

‘Wife of Jesus’ theory papyrus not fake – Harvard study

This Sept. 5, 2012 file photo released by Harvard University shows a fragment of papyrus that divinity professor Karen L. King said is the only existing ancient text that quotes Jesus explicitly referring to having a wife. An article published in the Harvard Theological Review on Thursday, April 10, 2014, said new scientific tests suggest the fragment is more likely an ancient document than a forgery. King, an expert in the history of Christianity, said the papyrus probably dates to eighth-century Egypt based on carbon dating tests and tests on the ink's chemical composition.

It was their faith in the Sto. Niño that brought them back to the Catholic faith. Couple Rasty and Lilibeth Seville were Protestants when they first attended the fluvial procession in 2001. Curiosity prompted them to accept the invitation of a friend to join him in his banca, but it turned out the watercraft was already carrying 20 people, way beyond its capacity of only 12.
