Behold the wood of the wondrous Cross, of which the Prince of Glory and of Mercy redeemed us, sinners.

HOLY WEEK will come early this year but it will not be the earliest in the range in the Gregorian calendar. The earliest falls from March 15-21 (happened in 1818, to happen in 2285) and the latest falls from April 18-24 (happened in 1943, to happen in 2038). This year, the most sacred week for Filipino Christians will start on March 20 (Palm Sunday) until 26 (Black Saturday).

Timow’s Turf comes back temporarily from educating the electorate in order to look out on the guide to Holy Week on free-to-air Philippine television. This scope will last until Easter Sunday, March 27.
