This evening in our neighbouring town of Tuscania the procession for Holy Week - Good Friday - Venerdì Santo  shown in this video will once again take place, it is a very moving event to witness.

  4. Ciao and Bouna Pasqua, My name is Yollie and I live in South Australia. I have found you blog via the comment you left for Mrs Bok of "The Bok Flok" blog. I am so very glad I did (and that you left a comment. I am the first of my family to be born outside of Italy. My family migrated in the 50's from the region of Benevento and I have never been fortunate enough to visit (thus far). I think you have a wonderful blog and will take the time to look at your older entries. Thanks for sharing your experience and take care. Yolanda

  8. You are right - very moving.
    Very dramatic, the faces covered, the dragging of the chains, the cross though surrounded my many, is all alone.
    And then there is Easter. I hope you have a wonderful day.

    Thank you once more for a beautiful post - every time I see your new header of wisteria it makes me happy. I must tell you that there are new shoots on our supposed dormant little wisteria - I should have remembered about being patient!

  21. Rich with symbolism that I didn't always understand...the men dragging chains (representing sin?) and obviously willing to endure some pain as evidenced by the bloodies ankles. While Mary's pain was very great indeed, it was not as great as the Savior's. Very interesting. Thank you for reminding me to come watch. I'm glad that I did. I also listened to "Jerusalem," which is a very expressive and powerful song.
