These sixteen Easter eggs are from Czechoslovakia. Each one is hand blown and painted and then strung onto colourful ribbon so they could be hung up.
We currently have some Romanian Easter eggs on loan at Hall Place, Bexley and Whitstable Museum and Gallery and are definitely worth checking out. The loans are part of a project called Object in Focus, and more information can be found here: http://www.horniman.ac.uk/about/object-in-focus-loans

First things first. Thanks to my sib, Mark who covered for me at today’s event at the cathedral.

Holy Week for us Filipinos is SACRED. No where in the world (I guess?) will you find a country so enamored in this holiest week.

See, we find time not only to pause in reflective prayer but  we go on foot to visit several churches to bond with family (yeah it can be a family affair) to give thanks and to ask forgiveness among others.

Today is Good Friday. Christendom remembers that day when Christ offered His life as ransom for us all.

No greater love than this…

Think about it.
