Penitents

The penitents of Pakil, Laguna, better known as flagellants since they strike themselves while walking the streets. Done during the Holy Week and usually found in the Southern Tagalog provinces like Metro Manila, Rizal, Laguna and to some extent, those also in the Central part of Luzon like Tarlac and Pampanga. The Laguna flagellants differ those in the other provinces wherein the men (its usually the men who conduct this) dress themselves in skirts using the dried banana leaves (to humiliate as these are supposedly macho men), cover their heads with masks or cloth with slits for the eyes and some head ornaments consisting of some flowers and leaves of the coconut. In Kalayaan as well as in Pakil in the province of Laguna, they use short wooden rods for flagellation tied to a rope while in Siniloan, a few kilometers from Pakil, they use steel rods. The number of rods signify the number of years that the penitent will do the ritual. The usual reasons for doing this is to ask for forgiveness and atone for one’s sins, fulfill a promise for a supplication granted. Pakil, Laguna, Philippines www.estanli.net
