Group of flagellants finally reached their destination as their final vow of penitence. They've been whipping the wound on their back with bamboo sticks bind together at the end of a rope while walking for a couple of kilometers. This is one of Catholic traditions being done on lenten season in some of the provinces in the Philippines.

Thanks Bluesky! This was taken in Bgy. Kutod, San Fernando, Pampanga. It's a regular occurance every Lenten season especially on Good Friday. That particular place is where three-cross were erected wherein 19 were nailed on both palms and feet to the cross one-by-one.
