JoelJosol Posted May 26, 2009 Share Posted May 26, 2009 The jeepney is mobile church for the poor boy who used its middle corridor as path for his knees despite its foul emissions from the mouth of its driver and muffler. It is decorated with a cross or icon or the image of Christ above on the windshield. First, the boy cleans the shoes of passengers. Then, he raises his palms as if to pray but really he is collecting alms, without the pouch, for his service. Before his improvised altar, he looks up at the Christ gazing down on this crowd, indifferent, busy minding their own poverty. He looks back, another passenger gets in with a Bible and pouch in hand.
