A documentary retracing the route of St. Ignatius of Loyola in 1522 to become a "true soldier of Christ" is airing Friday afternoon on the Kapamilya network, as part of its Lenten broadcast.

Produced by the Jesuit Communications Foundation, "Sangandaan: Paghahanap kay Hesus sa Camino Ignaciano" follows a group of pilgrims who share their spiritual journey and personal stories as they walk the same path as Ignatius.

The actual pilgrimage, which spanned 157 kilometers in Spain, happened from September 26 to October 10 last year, and will be shown in "Sangandaan" alongside scenes from the award-winning "Ignacio de Loyola" film, and reflections from spiritual director Rev. Fr. Louis Catalan, SJ.

"The pilgrims that audiences will see, they're physically moving from point A to B. Much like in our lives, we're always journeying regardless of what stage we are at. Ultimately, it is getting to know God more, connecting with Him that remains to be our main purpose," JesCom creative director Pauline Mangilog-Saltarin said.

"Sangandaan" will air from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Good Friday on ABS-CBN.
