As the tradition in Zamboanga City, most of the devotees would find their way to Abong-Abong, Pasonanca to go up the Stations of the Cross until they reach the Cruz Mayor.

It is now quite late and the devotees are now in Abong Abong. It seems so congested but the reason is the bottleneck.

For security reasons, the devotees have to be checked by the police before they can enter the area, which is actually still a few kilometers from the Cruz Mayor up in the hill. With the thousands of devotees there, we would wonder when all of them can go through, through the few queues (I think about three lines) where they can pass.

I believe the devotees don't mind this because they too want to be safe as they pray and reflect on God's words and experience for the "WAY OF THE CROSS" or the "VIA CRUCIS".

From our vantage point, this is the Cruz Mayor on Holy Thursday 2015.

Have a Blessed Lenten Celebration!
