Good Friday falls on April 22nd and it was the day when some of religious groups form and perform the PENITENSYA on the streets. The scorching heat of the sun didn’t stop them from going on the street to imitate what happened to Jesus Christ the day he carry the cross, crucified and died.
Around 5 pm, my family and I joined the procession in our town’s street and later on watched the “AMBA”, dead Christ being brought inside the church. The crowd was huge and there are lots of religious saints that took part in the procession.
The Amba successfully arrived in our church premises, thousands of devotees followed and “carried” Him.
