Lenten Record: UST attempts world record, forms largest human cross

The Lenten season has begun for the Catholic Faithful as Ash Wednesday begun yesterday. Thousands of catholics flocked the cathedrals and churches to get some ash on their foreheads as a sign of repentance and sacrifice. I was not able to participate with the rituals due to some work hazards but in my heart I know its time to slow down and reflect.

Speaking of reflection, the UST community yesterday, were thinking more of just a cross in their foreheads, as they attempt to set a world record for the largest human figure of a cross ever assembled.     

“It was the students who requested that we also do something for the Guinness Book of World Records so we thought on Ash Wednesday we could attempt the biggest human cross,” said Fr. Cabading UST vice rector
24,000 students were able to paricipate in the event, that i'm sure will grab the record held previously by Norway as they formed the oslo cross, comprised of only 900++ people.  

“This is not only an attempt to form the biggest human cross, this is also a spiritual event for each one of us because it is the beginning of Lent,” Fr. Cabading added.
Kudos to UST for putting the Philippines in the world record books.

With the beginning of lent, lets begin to reflect on our spiritual lives as Filipinos so that we can better serve one another and move forward as a nation in unity.
