The times are changing fast in my rural hometown. While some events and traditions remain unchanged and so too the icons representing it, the advances in technology leap by miles yearly. The century-old Santo entierro icon for instance posed a stark contrast to the modern gadgets of the younger set of the parishioners of Bulusan who were capturing the last moments of the image after a long Good Friday procession around the Poblacion.
