Good Friday in Costa Rica

Thursday and Friday of Holy Week are very quiet in Costa Rica. Today we decided to drive into the center of our town of Curridabat and see if there were any Good Friday observances. We arrived just in time for the Procession, along with sno-cone vendors and lots of spectators.

I posted a video slideshow on YouTube of the procession.

Over the years, we have thought a lot about Catholic vs. Evangelical Easter observances. Our conclusion is that we can take from the observances the Biblical meaning of Jesus bearing our burden on the cross. I hope you enjoy the video and the music I chose to accompany it, recorded by Keynote, a Cru music group.
