Good Friday in Umbria
Though it’s almost 14 years I live in Umbria, I never witnessed a procession on Good Friday. Not being particularly religious it never crossed my mind. Yesterday we thought it would be about time we also participate. Glad I did! It is a very suggestive experience even for non religious people. The whole village turns up and many actively participate, also young people. My son thought it was very sad. I thought he talked about Christ being hung on the cross, but he meant the fires that destroyed nature….
I was clever enough to take my foto camera with me. The pictures speak for themselves.
