Antigua Guatemala’s Semana Santa: Photo Essay

There is something beautiful about the human’s faith. A dedication and emotion weaved into the belief of resurrection, regardless of one’s harsh reality and daily struggles. The harsher reality, the stronger is hope, looking for some meaning in the chaos of loss and self-conviction. There must be something else, fighting for good in humanity, bringing back lost ones and finding a reason to continue. There must be something else then this poor personal existence. Something divine, so pure and forgiving, that no human being can compare with, not even those who claim to touch it in their prayers. Something better. Something that can’t be devoured by anything, not even flames.
