MANILA, Philippines – Sen. Chiz Escudero and wife Christine will spend the Holy Week ‘away from politics, somewhere in the south,’ together with their twins Chesi and Quino. ‘It’s the second Easter for the twins,’ said Chiz, ‘and I like us to be together. Easter is like a second Christmas. We have Christmas in December to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and in April the Lenten season ends with Easter, the Resurrection of Christ.’
This early, the Escuderos want to instill in their children awareness of Christian traditions, such as the pabasa, the visita iglesia and the cenaculo during the Holy Week.
