From the Tube’s 2015 Holy Week Retreat

From the Tube will be off the air throughout Holy Week. Regular programming resumes after the Easter weekend.

From the Tube will again sign off this Holy Week.

As part of a tradition commemorating the death, sacrifice and resurrection of Jesus Christ, no new posts on From the Tube will be published throughout Holy Week. Regular programming will resume after the Easter weekend.

As it has been the case in previous Lenten observances, most television stations will either air limited programming with mostly religious themes, or sign off from Maundy Thursday to Black Saturday. Radio stations will either have limited playlists or sign off for the aforementioned three days.

All regular programming should resume this Easter Sunday. As for the upcoming Holy Week schedules on the small screen, click this post from Timow’s Turf for more information.

With that, From the Tube will like to wish everyone a blessed Holy Week. For those traveling to faraway places, stay safe and enjoy this respite.

From the Tube Takes a Sabbatical This Holy Week

From the Tube will be off the blogosphere this Holy Week. Regular posts will resume after the Easter weekend.

Holy Week is about reflection, prayer and sacrifice. It is a week where Jesus Christ’s passion, death and resurrection is commemorated, and for many Filipinos, this is the time where they take a respite from their busy lifestyles, and look back religiously at the things that God has done to them.

And as part of maintaining that serenity and calm, there will be no new posts on From the Tube for the duration of the Holy Week. Regular posts will resume right after the Easter weekend.

Then, for those who want to check out the upcoming television programs this Holy Week, click on Timow’s latest post on his blog. And finally, most radio stations will be off the air from Maundy Thursday to Black Saturday, so I advise readers to legally download songs as soon as possible, so that you can enjoy your favorite tunes without disturbing the peace.

From the Tube would like to wish everyone a safe and blessed Holy Week. For those leaving Metro Manila for either a trip to the beach or at the church, enjoy your brief vacation.
