*Abstract: Reynaldo Ileto claims in his work Pasyon and Revolution that
the Pasyon provided a framework and language that made masses more aware of
a pattern in universal history, ideal forms of social behavior, a way to
attain these through suffering, death, and rebirth, and how all of these
were relevant to their participation in the 1896 Filipino Revolution. In
his reading, he unearths key insights in his main
argument: liwanag and ginhawa as outlining a worldview, loob as the local
concept of the inner self and its formation and transformation,
and lakaran as collective mass engagement in trying to achieve
a Pasyon-defined Paradise. He did not intend to provide a theological
interpretation crucial to his reading. The thesis attempts to put forward a
theological interpretation by appealing to
Hans Urs Von Balthasar’s theo-dramatic categories, applying it on the key
insights of liwanag, loob, and lakaran. The resulting theological
interpretation will complement Ileto’s reading of the Pasyon and provide a
constructive reflection leading towards a theology of acting spaces and
alternative models of Christian political action.*
