Święcone in Brazil


Many thanks to Patricia in the combox for sending this photo of the blessing of Easter baskets in Curitibia, Brazil where there is a large Polish community. As I suggested in my earlier post, I think that this is a Catholic Easter tradition that could be revived for others as well as the Polish who have kept it alive.

(In relation to the discussion in that post about the timing of this blessing - note that this one was on Holy Saturday.)
