LIGAO CITY: A month before the Lenten season, devout Filipino Catholics in Albay province made an atonement for their sins in various ways—some by flagellation, others by fasting and others by joining processions on foot as they trekked the “hill without a hilltop” over Kawa-Kawa hill. This Lenten season, the prelate, priests, nuns along with 6,000 youth and Rep. Fernando Gonzalez of Albay walked on barefoot under the heat of the sun for 6th Diocesan Way of the Cross held at 2:00 PM in Kawa-Kawa Hill this city. The trekking on foot was led by Bishop Joey “Bong” Baylon of the diocese of Legazpi.
