Believe it or not, it was our first time to do the Visita Iglesia yesterday. Although I heard about it but have not done the practice. All I remember during my childhood days back in our hometown Zamboanga City, we usually do the station of the cross at the Abong-abong, Pasonanca.
Originally, excerpt from Wikipedia;
The Seven Churches Visitation also known as Visita Iglesia is a pious Roman Catholic Lenten tradition to visit seven churches onMaundy Thursday. On Maundy Thursday of Holy Week, following the Mass of the Lord's Supper, the Blessed Sacrament, the "bread" of the mass, is laid on the Altar of Repose in the church for the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. During the Seven Churches Visitation or VisitaIglesia, the faithful visit several churches – sometimes seven, sometimes fourteen, sometimes no set number depending upon the particular practice – to pray in front of each church's Blessed Sacrament.
Although the practice of Visita Iglesia originally done after the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on the evening of Maundy Thursday, many Catholic devotees does the practice before the mass or the early hours of Thursday.
