Pabasa ng Philippine TV for Holy Week 2017

Ecce Homo (1871) by Antonio Ciseri (1821-1891)

IT’S SO HARD to believe that Holy Week is next week — the first on the nine-month-old Duterte administration and yes, the Turf understands it as a political aspect of Calvary we’re harnessing.
Anyway, in this penultimate and pious week of Lent, many words emanate to our psyche: reflection, journey, sacrifice, panata and self-penitence.

As part of the countdown to 500 years of Christianity, this year (2017) is designated for the Year of Parish as the Communion of Communities.

As part of the preparation of the Quincentennial of Christianity in the Philippines in 2021, each year within the nine-year novena (since 2012-13) has a certain designation. This year is dedicated as the Year of the Parish as the Communion of Communities. So, expect this theme to be integrated throughout the following days.
During the week, operating hours on malls and establishments are expected to be reduced — if not closed — on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday but they may resume full-time on Black Saturday.
On television, particularly, free to air, some networks either reduced to special programming or signed off. In the Turf’s annual tradition of heralding the events, the whole week will be divided into four (4) chronological groups with six (6) specific periods. In this distinctive insight, some channels and programs within the week will give notice if they’re in conflictin need of attention and something to watch out for.
Bear in mind that such insights are unpredictable.

The free-to-air Philippine TV guide for Holy Week 2016

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

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.
