Begin the solemn journey by catching the “Mga Kuwento Sa Lupang Pangako,” which was produced by Jesuit Communications Foundation. This special features two documentaries “Sa Mga Yapak Ni Hesus,” and “Ang Makabagong Disipilo” that were both shot in Israel.
“Sa Mga Yapak Ni Hesus” follows a group of Filipino pilgrims who come to experience the Holy Land, with the help of their pilgrimage master Manila Archbishop Chito Tagle. Instead of dwelling on the passion and death of a vanquished Christ, Tagle leads them to a deeper understanding of the triumph and joy of the risen Christ, and the impact on their futures. This special will be narrated by veteran broadcast journalist Cheche Lazaro. “Sa Mga Yapak Ni Hesus” airs Maundy Thursday (April 5), 12p.m.
“Ang Makabagong Disipulo” is an up-close and personal look at Fr. Luis Antonio “Chito” Tagle, the newly installed Archbishop of Manila. This documentary, hosted by ABS-CBN anchor Bernadette Sembrano-Aguinaldo, takes a deeper look into this remarkable man on a mission. It begins as Fr. Chito is about to make his first pilgrimage to the Holy Land a few weeks before his installation. It follows him on this bittersweet journey, fraught with apprehensions and anxieties, and it watches how he comes to Jesus in the very land that He was born in and died. “Ang Makabagong Disipulo” airs Good Friday (April 6), 5p.m.
