Via Crucis in Merced, a Hispanic
Dear Editor: Sacred Heart Church
celebrated the Passion of Christ on the streets of
Merced. Pastor Rev. Jesús Reynaga presided the public
ceremony through the streets of Merced. The Via Crucis
was enacted by the young Hispanic people of Merced. The
Via Crucis is a beautiful celebration that is filled
with cultural wealth that comes to us from the Old
Continent, form Spain. It is a very graphic
representation of a historical event. It is a way of
telling a story.
There is an old saying: a picture is
worth a thousand words. I may add that a theatrical
representation is worth a million words.
Hispanics bring with them a tremendous
cultural wealth, and not only very tasty food.
I would like to share the video I made
with you and your Internet readers on Youtube:
The Movie and photos are in the Parish
Website that I also maintain:
I give you, Merced Sunstar, explicit
authorization to use them as you please.
