Procession of the Lord’s Passion (Holy Thursday)
The testimony of Jesus Christ after the last supper of his sacrifice and eternal life.
In the twilight of Holy Thursday, the old Confraternity of the Holy and True Cross carries out a procession of the Son of God, who is seen with an expression of pain on his face and his flesh bruised, the red blood of Passion drips from the wounds on his battered back, side and head, flooding the night with sorrow and despair.
In the evening of Holy Thursday, a beautiful succession of floats is carried by penitent members of the brotherhood, men, women and young people committed to the Pain they carry and listen to the prayer of the officiant so that “God bless them” in this procession through the main streets of the Historic Centre. Accompanying them are dozens of hooded Nazarenes dressed in a purple tunic fitted with a cincture and a golden-yellow cape. They are surrounded by the veneration of the faithful as this act transforms into a synthesis of living catechesis represented by the most important sculptural ensemble of great artistic and religious value in the Holy Week of Coria.
