BLACK MADONNA DELIGHTS FREMANTLE

Posted in fremantle, multicultural, photography, religion, western australia by freoview on September 11, 2016

The traditional Black Madonna, Maria Santissima Del Tindari, procession snaked through the Fremantle city centre this afternoon, accompanied by fireworks at the Esplanade, that appeared a bit too loud for two people in the parade. The procession started at the Basilica in Queen Adelaide Street

I very much enjoy the traditions of the Black Madonna and Blessing of the Fleet and wonder why they are not better promoted by the City of Fremantle, to attract more people. Most people just happened to be there and only a few had come to watch because they knew about it.

Footnote: I don’t mean this disrespectful in any way, but why are people in processions always looking so morose? You believe in your God, and going to heaven after this already beautiful life, so why don’t you smile and delight in your faith?
