Philippines is a predominantly Roman Catholic nation in Asia, but there are still few Filipinos who practice aboriginal religion as there were still untouched villages during the colonial era, specifically by the three powerful nations: Spain, Japan and America.
So when I got to Mount Singakalsa a year ago, I was surprised that the Spanish conquerors were able to penetrate the ninth highest mountain of the Philippines for their God, Gold, and Glory campaign because of the church up the highland village of Atok in Benguet. I’ve always believed that the Cordilleras is one of the few “untouched” places until I have learned from delving the internet and t.v. shows that my belief was actually the opposite.
Anyway, the reason behind choosing my entry for this week’s photo challenge is, it is an absolute necessity of the Holy Sacrament for every Catholic to undergo baptism in a church like the one on the photo for entrance to heaven. So there are actually two entrances on the photo in that case.
