Holy Wednesday, the Procession of Silence, the Christ out on the shoulders of his brothers and his step streets darken (30/03/2010)

Holy Wednesday in Sewell is different.

Silence is the one that accompanies the procession leaving at ten in the evening from the beautiful and emblematic church of Our Lady of the Assumption of the Barrio de Campoamor.

Procession of Silence and Brotherhood of the Holy Christ of the Good Death.

This is the most intimate procession that emanates from a district, as is the de Campoamor, with a very short history in processions, but with the peculiarity of having the single most emotional and deep cove in the popular mood.

The Christ of the Good Death, who is worshiped daily in the parish of Our Lady of the Assumption, paraded for the first time at Easter 1955, is a wood carving of the sculptor and Murcia José Noguera, as the former was a Christ crucified also plaster, which was replaced by is an image.

The current seat was held last year by the sculptor's sons, brothers Noguera.

The Brotherhood was founded in 1952.

El Cristo de la Buena Muerte runs like the rest of the images that are processions in Sewell, on the shoulders of his 72 brothers, surrounded in the ranks of penitents by the 320 brothers who compose it, with a severe black robe and cape Satin also black, dim lighting, the sound of drum beating of the 26 brothers who make up the squad of drums, along with a third female duo of 21 women and a sense essentially penitent.

This year, like last, the singer from Murcia Maribel Castillo, will be in charge of singing four bolts to the Christ of the Good Death as it passes through the streets Salvador de Madariaga, Martínez Campos Avenue, Main Street at the height of road the Romans and the last in the Plaza de la Inmaculada moments before entering the temple again.

On their way through the streets of his itinerary: Church of Our Lady of the Assumption, Calle Salvador de Madariaga, Reyes Católicos Avenue, Avenue Martínez Campos, Entrevías, Mayor Street, Cervantes, Alfonso X the Wise and the Immaculate Square.

The street that runs in our population are off their street lights, and all those private, windows, etc.., Which for a few seconds waiting for the Christ pass with only flashes of light from the throne itself.

Of particular beauty and deep religious sense and respect the input of the Cristo de la Buena Muerte, on the one in the morning, Nazarenes stop at the plaza and make it a corridor, without drums, no music, no lights, only heard after the orders of litter and noise over the portapasos.

Once in the door of the church and looking at the square a trumpet plays the familiar "call to prayer" and a hymn to Christ of the Good Death of a coral are the only breaks the silence has tonight.
