Every year between the months of March and April, millions of Mexicans gather around the country to hold a series of celebrations during the Holy Week, to honor the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
With the majority of the country within the Catholic Church, religious celebrations in Mexico are important.
The peak of this week is the Good Friday, which is the day the crucifixion happened so a procession takes place where confraternities from different churches gather together to march for several hours.
There are different places in Mexico where this happens, one of the biggest processions takes place in Puebla, a state known for holding the highest number of churches in Mexico.
There is an incredible contrast between the believers, many of them having being devoted for decades and others who come for the very first time. Religion is complex subject for some and simple for others, it is difficult to meet people halfway within this topic. As years go by, the practices within the Catholic Church have changes, sometimes they bring back the past, sometimes they look towards the future.
One thing is true though; religious celebrations have the capacity to bring people together.
