MANILA - Thousands of Catholics flocked to churches and joined processions to mark Good Friday, a Christian holiday that commemorates the crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ.

Filipino devotees lit candles as they walked along streets, reciting prayers with carriages bearing scenes of Jesus' sacrifice on Calvary.

The annual practice is one of the many traditions observed by Filipinos during the Lenten holiday. Others marked Good Friday by penance through self-flagellation and crucifixion.
