Festa Sant'Agata, Catania

A video from the recently concluded Feast of Saint Agatha in Catania, Sicily. These scenes are so familiar, so... natural, never mind the fact that this happened half a world from where I am. The waving of cloths, the fireworks, the presence of high dignitaries and the crush of people ranging from the merely curious to the feverishly devoted. And yes, even the clerics hanging on for dear life (as can be seen in the second video, below) Gotta love old school processions! Regular blogging will (hopefully) resume soon; do pray for me, that I may have the patience to endure freeloading groupmates and a ton of schoolwork.
