TRADITIONAL AND PIOUS PASSION NIGHT AT PENHA GARCIA ─ PORTUGAL

Recommended Posts

Peace and Good!

Today, once again, I want to introduce you to Holy Week experiences in Portugal.
After Braga, the city where I live, I send you the link to an entry on my blog where I posted some videos and photographs of a pious tradition in the parish of Penha Garcia, Idanha-a-Nova, where a group of ladies, at midnight on Good Friday to Holy Saturday, they roam the streets of the parish reciting a Rosary in which the Hail Mary are replaced by another traditional prayer, and they make the Stations of Cross.
The ladies dress in black and almost all go barefoot:

To all of you the greatest blessings of the Risen Jesus, Mary and Francis!
