Easter Tuesday evening: The Via Crucis
Zamora, magical in the half light, at its waist, the walls, and at its feet, the river.
And across this same river is borne the sculpture of Jesus of Nazareth, pertaining to the parish church of San Frontis, situated on the left bank of the river, where the market gardeners and humble workers live. They lovingly brought the statue to the cathedral only a few days ago and it will be returned it to their parish on Easter Tuesday by the brotherhood of Jesus of the Stations of the Cross, founded in 1941.
The penitents on Easter Tuesday wear white and purple serge habits and bear a ‘paso’ of the fourteen Stations of the Via Crucis which gives the brotherhood its name.
The Virgin of Hope accompanies him on his return. This delicate sculpture, carved by Víctor de los Ríos, is a poem written with tears and stars. The Virgin Mary walks behind her Son and prays together with him for her own path of hope.
