Panahon ng pagtitika at pagsasama-sama ng pamilya

LENTEN SEASON IS a special time to reflect on the sufferings and death of Christ. Ito ang panahon ng pagdarasal at pagsasakripisyo habang naglalakad tayo kasama ni Kristo sa Kalbaryo. In this journey, Christ suffered, was humiliated, betrayed and was crucified. Namatay siya upang tayo ay mabuhay.

The long holiday starting Maundy Thursday is a traditional break from our frenzied schedules. Ang iba sa atin ay magbabakasyon sa probinsiya, sa beach, sa ibang bansa, o magpapahinga lang sa bahay. Sana kahit tayo nagbabakasyon ay huwag nating kalilimutan na magpasalamat sa Diyos for giving us Jesus, the greatest sign of His love.

This is also the perfect time to bond with our family by watching inspiring movies. Here are some movies being shown on television during Holy Week:

Ang Himala ay idinirek ni Ishmael Bernal at pinagbidahan ng nag-iisang Superstar na si Ms. Nora Aunor bilang si Elsa na nakikita at nakakausap daw ang Birhen. The setting is a small, arid town named Cupang which is believed to be placed under a curse. Tumatak na sa ating isipan ang linyang “Walang himala! Ang himala ay nasa puso ng tao! Ang himala ay nasa puso nating lahat!” na binitiwan ni Ate Guy habang siya ay nasa itaas ng burol at nangungumpisal sa mga debotong nakapaligid sa kanya.

Itim is a 1976 suspense-drama film directed by Mike de Leon. It stars Charo Santos, Tommy Abuel, Mario Montenegro, Mona Lisa and Susan Valdez. Ito ang unang pelikulang idinerek ni Mike at ito rin ang first starring role ni Ma’am Charo. Umikot ang buong kuwento sa panahon ng Holy Week. The film successfully captures the Filipino culture with its theme of superstition, religion, spirituality and the occult.

Ang Jesus of Nazareth ay tungkol sa buhay ni Kristo based on the accounts of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The movie is directed by Franco Zeffirelli and stars the powerhouse cast of Robert Powell as Jesus, Olivia Hussey as Mary, Anne Bancroft as Mary Magdalene, Laurence Olivier as Nicodemus, Christopher Plummer as Herod Antipas and Anthony Quinn as Caiaphas.

Laging ipinalalabas sa telebisyon tuwing Holy Week ang The Ten Commandments. This classic film by Cecil B. DeMille tells the story of Moses (Charlton Heston) as he struggles to free the Israelites from Egypt. Kung in na in ngayon ang Avatar dahil sa special effects ay pinabilib naman noon ng The Ten Commandments ang mga manonood dahil sa mga eksenang gaya ng paghihiwalay ng Red Sea at ang pagkakaloob ng Ten Commandments kay Moses sa Mount Sinai.

Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ is about the last twelve hours of Jesus Christ. Si James Caviezel ang gumanap bilang Kristo. Maraming tao ang umiyak sa loob ng sinehan habang ipinalalabas ito because they felt guilty, ashamed, moved and astounded at the enormity of Jesus’ sacrifice to save mankind. The movie stirred controversies with scenes like the scourging and crucifixion which are considered exceptionally violent and graphic.

A Blessed Holy Week to all of us!

Kaibigan, usap tayo muli!
