7107 Islands’ Fiesta| Moriones Festival 2013 Schedule of Activities

Moriones Festival is an annual religious festival held during Holy Week (starting Palm Sunday up to Easter Sunday) in my home province- Marinduque. The festival re-enacts the seven-day search for  Longinus. Men and women wearing mask and costumes replicating the looks of a Roman Centurion are called Moriones/Morions. They usually roams in the streets searching for Longinus, and  also serve as their way of "Panata"(devotion) or "Pagpapahirap sa Sarili"(penitence)Moriones came from the  Spanish root-word  morion which means mask.
