The clergy of the Diocese of Borongan in the central Philippines held a three-kilometer “penitential walk” on Tuesday, July 20, 2021, to pray for an end to the pandemic.

The priests carried an image of the crucified Christ during the religious procession from Borongan Cathedral to the Chaplaincy of Our Lady of Miraculous Medal in Sabang town.

The “day of prayer and fasting” was “an expression of solidarity with those who lost their loved ones” and those who suffer from the disease.

“This day of prayer and fasting is our simple response … (to) remind us of our true identity as Catholics,” said Father Mike Gadicho, parish priest of Borongan Cathedral Parish. (Photos by Mark Alferez)
