Siete Palabras at Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral to be aired, streamed online
CEBU CITY, Philippines — The Siete Palabras, the traditional retelling of the Seven Last Words of Jesus Christ, will push through in a different platform this year in various parishes in Cebu including the Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral.
The Archdiocese of Cebu has long announced that there would be no crowd-gathering physical activities for the Holy Week and encouraged most of the faithful to stay at home while Church services would still be streamed online.
The Cathedral has announced that they have partnered with local broadcast stations, GMA Cebu and DYRF, for the broadcasting of their pre-recorded Siete Palabras.
The entire Siete Palabras service will also be streamed live on The Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral Facebook page as well starting at noon to 3 p.m.
The Siete Palabras is a yearly tradition on Good Friday where Catholics commemorate the Seven Last Words of Jesus Christ during his passion and death.
Parishes traditionally invite speakers to share their testimonies that help show the significance of at least one of the Seven Last Words.
Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma personally invited the faithful to tune in from their homes through a video.
“Usa sa labing importante nga bulohaton, mao ang atong pamalandong sa Biernes Santo. Ang Siete Palabras magsugod alas dose sa udto. Ang tema, Gifted to Give, gigasahan aron magpaambit,” said the prelate.
(One of the most important things to do is our reflections on Good Friday. The Siete Palabras or Seven Last Words start at n00n. The theme is Gifted to Give.)
For this year’s Siete Palabras, the Cathedral has decided to stick to religious Fathers and Sisters of the Church to give testimonies for their retelling of the Seven Last Words.
The testimonies for this year’s Siete Palabras will be delivered in Cebuano by the following:
