I feel lucky enough that I managed to write two posts as soon as the month of August arrived. And then came a pause. Why? I have my hands full with my kids, my work, and my husband. You see, my two grade schoolers are going through a lot of quizzes and assignments these days. Just for this week, we are busy reviewing for their Mastery Test. And by next week, another review and preparation for their 1st Periodical Exams.
The Senakulo (from the Spanish cenaculo) is a Lenten play that depicts events from the Old and New Testaments related to the life, sufferings, and death of Christ. The senakulo is traditionally performed on a proscenium-type stage with painted cloth or paper backdrops that are called telon. It takes at least eight nights – from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday – to present the play. Christ is presented traditionally as meek and masochistic, submitting lamblike to his fate in obedience to authority.
