Self flagellation of Catholic devotees in Daet

CAMARINES NORTE, Philippines – Although discouraged by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines, self flagellation as an act of penitence is still practiced by many devotees in various areas of the Philippines.

Penitents endure the extreme bodily pain, believing that the practice can absolve them of their sins, cause the healing of a loved one, or simply ensure Divine provision of blessings to their family.
