Good Friday 2024 Photopost (Part 3): Via Crucis and Processions in Mexico and Brazil

For our final Good Friday photopost, I saved these particularly interesting sets of images. From the FSSP apostolate in Guadalajara, Mexico, we have a live representation of the Via Crucis, and a nighttime procession with a statue of the dead Christ and the Mother of Sorrow. From the cathedral of São João del Rei in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, we have a deposition and burial ceremony (with a life-sized statue), and preaching on the Seven Last Words, before the main Good Friday liturgy, sent in by one of our most regular photopost contributors, Mr João Melo. We will have the liturgies of Easter within a day or so; in the meantime, have your cameras ready for the Ascension and Pentecost, and keep up the good work of evangelizing through beauty.
