Station Twelve Photography | Procession of the Dead Christ

In the evening of Good Friday a black procession or the procession of the Dead Christ (“il Cristo morto”) takes place. In this procession participants, wearing black clothes, lament on the moment when Virgin Mary found her son, crucified. They carry the simulacrum of Jesus Christ. Also at this parish, there is a relic of the True Cross which is also present in the procession. The church is in absolute silence, all the lights are turned off. Only torches in the procession shine in the empty church.
