Monday’s Pictures in the News begins in Makati, Philippines, where self-taught artist Ronald Bautista works on his version of the Passion of Christ for his neighborhood’s observance of Holy Week. The giant art installation, made of recyclable materials, has attracted a number of local and foreign devotees. In San Fernando City, Philippines, a penitent lies on the ground outside a church while a boy holds his whip on Holy Wednesday. While the Roman Catholic Church has urged Filipinos to refrain from self-flagellation, many faithful continue to subject themselves to the punishment during Holy Week as a form of penance for their sins.

In Afgahnistan, wounded U.S. soldiers lie on the ground after a suicide attack north of Kabul that killed at least 10 people, including three NATO service members. It was the latest in a string of attacks as the spring “fighting season” gets underway.

Elsewhere, people toss fake currency into the air as a form of an offering to their deceased relatives at a Chinese cemetery during Qingming Festival in Singapore; a grounded cargo ship is battered by waves as it lies against seawall after hitting rocks near a jetty in Wales; and Tiger Woods hits a tee shot during a practice round prior to the start of the 2012 Masters at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia.

Add stops in Texas, Indonesia, New York and the West Bank to round out the report.
