Last Wednesday, March 6, on the Solemnity of Ash Wednesday, the Illustrious Superior Chapter of Processions, presented in the parish church of The Three Hail Marys the poster announcing the Holy Week of Totana 2019, also the magazine that since 1991 edits annually this institution, while it was paid tribute, with the award of recognition of Nazarene of Honor this year, to Domingo García Espejo.
Important events in the Nazarene vibration of our land and with which, somehow, the work of fraternities and fraternities begins to be visualized in view of the Passion Week event.
Main referential element that proclaims the significance of this celebration is its poster announcer.
From it distills a sovereign and seductive beauty, while it is filled with content by the emotion reflected in the images that compose it.
Its creators, the photographic studio Â«Sácame GuapaÂ», with the support of the brotherhood of Santa María Salomé and Ecce Homo, offer an eloquent message wrapped in essences and testimonies, in which the titular devotions of the Brotherhood, occupy the leading role of this passionate manifesto and question the heart.
The overwhelming strength of Mary Salome is consecrated in adherence to Christ, overcoming those sorrows that failed to abate their faith to the apparent failure of the Crucified.
His is an encouragement to live the truth, the firmness of hope.
For its part, the imposing size of the Ecce Homo shows us the dimension of a god who suffers with the one who suffers, who understands, welcomes and forgives, who always frees and embraces.
The integrity that its architect, the Murcian sculptor José Hernández, knew how to infuse suggests the great sign of acceptance, tolerance, compliance ... The tower of the parish church of Santiago shows the solidity of the faith, grounded in the evangelical spirit, a beat that has driven the life of your community for centuries and that is formulated as a cardinal link of unity, fervor and solidarity.
To congratulate for such a suggestive exhortation, encouraging to continue in an act of strength and consistency, allegation of nobility and responsibility.
The publication of the Holy Week Magazine is also a reason for complacency.
It is a fundamental document to delve into the nature of penitential commemorations and the great variety of nuances that revolve around them.
Literary expressions, graphics, brotherhood experiences, historical articles ... emotions that are born from the soul of the people of this land resonate with singularity in this valuable legacy.
In this same context, the president of the maximum cofrade entity of the city, agglutinating the efforts and efforts of the different brotherhoods of the town, showed the identity, the trajectory, the collaborative work, the desire and perseverance of Domingo García al service of the Holy Week of Totana, highlighting a work that is a reference of renewal, transformation, Nazarene passion.
The itinerary of generosity and dedication, of love and enthusiasm, of availability and loyalty, of involvement in painstaking and fruitful projects, is already well-known, of the Nazareno de Honor of the Holy Week of Totana 2019. But, in addition, in his walk converge his Creative commitment to the necessary and essential evolution with the maintenance and preservation of values â€‹â€‹that, inherent in the Nazarene reality of Totana, have to be considered.
In favor of both attributes, Domingo has worked tirelessly.
In this confluence of performances, moreover, he has forged his copious abnegation, his vocation and knowledge, as well as his extraordinary contribution to a celebration that in Totana springs from the very heart of his people.
Domingo, conscious of the exalted characters that flow from her, believing firmly in that flow and imbued with so much respect, has made his tenacity an admirable link of Nazarene dedication.
For all this, we express the immense satisfaction with these achievements.
Likewise, it fills us with joy the decision that Juana Celi Rosa Zamarreño proclaims the solemn proclamation on dates close to the Major Week.
Endorsed by a journey of authenticity, by his love for Totana and rooted in faith trails, as well as from the strength that gives him the essence of his fraternity, his work of believers, his human qualities and the depth of his commitment, we are sure that the eagerness of his words and the depth of his message will greatly help to live in intensity the relevance of this celebration.
