PENANCE IN THE HOOD FOR EASTER.

Posted in Uncategorized by ruthanzo on March 23, 2008

Ylli found these hooded penitents. This is how the Spanish Order of the Penitents repent for their sins. I’d like to see some of our politicians and free-wheeling capitalists doing time in these outfits.

There seem to be 4 colours of hood: red, white & blue.. and black. Wonder what sin each colour stands for or if the colour changes with the amount of penance done. White, just like the KKK, when completely absolved of sin?

    Paques-juives-chretiens bonnets are always major fashion statements. As Edina is fond of saying ~ “Its a Lacroix darling”
