Children's Crusade

Yesterday I stumbled upon a Children's Crusade through the streets of Antigua.

 Processions of children cucuruchos (penitents) traversed the cobbled streets in purple robes, carrying the Passion Play on their backs.

 Young penitents swung their thuribles of frankincense to fill the air with incense smoke. Little vestals in white carried the Virgin Mary in their tiny white-gloved hands.
