Filipino Catholics in a Passenger Jeep

By Karlo Sevilla - Quezon City, Philippines - 2 September 2014



The rickety jeep passed by the Sacred Heart of Jesus,

and five of us seven passengers began making

the sign of the cross, hurriedly --


more Quadrate or Square, more Greek than Latin:

forehead, chest, shoulder, shoulder


-- executed somewhere between

force of habit, and genuine

expression of faith.
