You may hear his reflections here  from Holy Thursday to Holy Saturday.

Produced by Jesuit Communications (JesCom) in partnership with Bayard Philippines, the online episodes seeks to delve deeper into certain questions mentioned in the readings and liturgy of the Holy Week: “Are you the king of the Jews”; “Do you understand what I just did for you”; “What is truth”; “My God, why have you forsaken me?”
