A time to reflect

My youngest son, Ryland, wrote this after he read the story of The Bronze Serpent (Numbers 21) in the Early Reader’s Bible last December. (Refer to December 6, 2004 entry Thank You God)

My earliest memory of Holy Week in the Philippines is the rhythmic chanting of the passion, which I heard over the loud speakers of the Iglesia ni Cristo church across the street from our house in Noveleta, Cavite. The reading of the passion started on the dawn of Holy Monday and I think lasted until Good Friday. We didn’t have school and work on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. Here in North America, only Good Friday is a statutory holiday. Government offices are closed on Easter Monday, though.
