PHILIPPINES-RELIGION-BELIEF

A penitent flagellates himself as part of Lenten observance in Angeles City, Pampanga province, north of Manila on April 17, 2014. The dominant Roman Catholic church does not condone flagellation and other extreme acts of penitence including gory Good Friday reenactments of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, but devout Catholics say it is a means of atoning for their sins and to implore God to spare them and other members of their families from illness or bad luck.
