Trip to the Healing Center

Wednesday, March 19, 2008

Yesterday we went out of town. It was fun and relaxing. Let me tell you about it.
My husband’s family has a tradition that they do every year. Every Maundy Thursday the family goes on doing the Way of the Cross or we call it Visita Iglesia locally. The tradition means going to different fourteen churches to pray. This means one station of the cross for every church.
However, we did it differently this time. We just visited one church but it is a Healing Center named “God’s Healing Hands” in Lucban, Quezon Philippines. It is located on a hill and as we prayed, we were going up the hill.
There were many people praying. There were different people of different ages. It was tiring but fulfilling. I enjoyed being with my in-laws. After 11 years of marriage I have learned to embrace them as my own family.
