"Nelson" forces to suspend the transfer of La Dolorosa to the Cathedral of Valladolid

Behind the parenthesis last night in Valladolid, where the storm “Nelson” gave a small respite and allowed, after adjusting the times to avoid the rain, the General Procession of Good Friday to be carried out through the streets of the city, in an open-air museum without equal for the enjoyment of tourists and penitents, it seems that this Passion Saturday It will be complicated again for the brotherhoods due to the existing weather instability and the high probability of rain, which can endanger the spectacular carvings that are paraded.

Thus, and given the forecast of rain this afternoon, the Penitential Brotherhood of the Santa Vera Cruz has decided to suspend the transfer of the Dolorosa de la Vera Cruz, an image of Gregorio Fernández dated 1623, to the Cathedral of Valladolid, which was scheduled to begin at half past five in the afternoon, in one of the most anticipated and intense moments of the Holy Week in Valladolid, already fervent, and declared of International Tourist Interest.

From the brotherhood they report that The act of Offering the Sorrows of Valladolid to the Blessed Virgin will take place in the church of La Vera Cruz at six in the afternoon. At that time, in addition, the proclamation of the Blessed Virgin as Queen of Sorrow and then the Offering of the Sorrows of Valladolid to the Blessed Virginled this year by journalist Luis Jaramillo, director of Cadena COPE in Castilla y León.

In the same way, the processions do not stop on this Holy Saturday, and if the weather permits they will take to the streets of the capital of Pisuerga on Holy Burial of Christ, which will do so at 8:00 p.m. from the Conventual Church of the Royal Monastery of San Joaquín and Santa Ana, with the image of the ‘Recumbent Christ’ by Gregorio Fernández, carried on shoulders.

The brothers continue looking at the sky and praying that it is benevolent and they can go out, although the risk of precipitation remains until Easter Sunday, which will close a week of passion with the meeting of the Virgin with her resurrected son.
