The president of the Community, Fernando Lopez Miras, said today, during the proclamation of the Holy Week of Yecla, that it "is a living legacy of history, which is worth living, enjoying and feeling within each one of us", and added that it is "culture and tradition, past, present and future, and passion of yeclanos".

At the beginning of his proclamation, López Miras expressed his gratitude to the Royal Cabildo Superior de Confraternios Pasionarias for "letting me experience the intensity of an emotion that I know and share", and remarked that "preaching Easter Week in Yecla is an immense honor and I do it with humility, with the eyes of a stranger but a Yeclavian heart ".

As he said, someone who "knows and loves Yecla, walks the streets and feels his soul".

"We are going to commemorate the victory of Christ over death, which gives meaning to everything," said the president, who listed the various brotherhoods and Yecla parades in Easter and highlighted the feeling they put and the passion felt by processions and Nazarenes, "people who love an ancestral tradition".

He explained that the streets of Yecla are during these days "witnesses of a secular history, of a historic Holy Week", of which news is preserved as early as 1575, when a score of brotherhoods had the participation of all the inhabitants of the city, as it was communicated in the Relations sent to King Felipe II.

That Holy Week "is still lived with emotion," said the head of the regional executive, who stressed that it "only reaches its true dimension and can only be understood from its real meaning, from a Christian experience," because, he added, " Holy Week is, above all, feeling ".

Tour of the Holy Week of Yecla

The president reviewed each of the days of Holy Week in Yeclana.

He referred to the Sabbath of Passion and the arrival on the shoulders of the image of the Holy Christ of the Blood and the Forgiveness, as well as the subsequent entrance of Jesus to Jerusalem.

"It is a hubbub, a bustle that will be replaced by the motets and the recitation of the Rosary, by the overwhelming sound of the chains in the yeclana night when the Christ of Health and the Sorrowful Virgin reminds us that it is Holy Monday," .

He stressed that Holy Week "is devotion and faith, a deep feeling that is transmitted from parents to children, a mark that is working on your soul when you learn to take your first steps in a Nazarene environment."

Something, which, he said, "you experience in Yecla as children, when Holy Tuesday arrives," a day in which the little ones accompany the Reclining Christ carrying in their hands a 'farolico' ".

Farolicos who, according to him, are, in many cases, "true works of art that pass from one generation to another to be, in the hands of children, a sign of a brotherhood with an unmistakable yeclana personality."

He referred to them as "a Nazarene quarry that opens the doors to a tomorrow of hope in which these children will be the protagonists, already made men and women."

At dusk of Holy Thursday "we will travel a path that will take us to Gethsemane with the Prayer of the Garden," said Lopez Miras, who continued narrating the meeting with Veronica on the way to Calvary, "where kneeling before the Cross," the Cristico 'knows that he still has to endure the hardest. "Later, the Saetas del Silencio, and then it will be the moment of the Courtesy," a characteristic and unique feature "of the Good Friday morning of Elche.

He referred to the Holy Burial, in the footsteps of Veronica, the Christ of the Good Death and the Lanzada, "who will go before the Descent and, again, the Virgin of Sorrows."

He also described the funeral procession that accompanies the body of Christ to the Sepulcher, preceding the Mother, the Virgin of Solitude.

Fernando Lopez Miras said that at the end of Holy Week in Yecla, "it leaves us with an indelible and profound memory, in the streets, the footprints of the penitents, on the facades, the reflection of the lights of the thrones, the echo of the music that accompanies the procession, and already the Sermon de la Soledad is the 'farewell talk' before the church of the Hospital. "

"But we still have the strength to live the best because at dawn, the joyful white of the Resurrection fills everything," the president continued, referring to the crossing of the Triunfante Cross, to San Pedro and Santa María Salomé;

the apparitions to Santa María Magdalena and Santo Tomás and the Virgen de la Alegría.

"All of them are witnesses of the Resurrection, like the thousands of Yeclans who are going to attend the Encounter and then accompany the images by the Corredera and the Stone Cross".

He also recalled the 'Caracol' of the Sanjuaneros and the Romans of Ecce Homo.

At this point, he remarked one of the most singular moments of the Holy Week in the municipality, "that which the yeclanos see the 'diablo' trying to escape when the mantle of mourning of the Virgin falls, until finally captured."

During his tour of Holy Week in Yecla, the president highlighted the importance and richness of the images and carvings of singular value, his embroidery and goldsmith's jewelery, as well as the music of very different origins that are heard during those days, since , as he said, "Holy Week in Yecla is also written on a staff".
