Virgen de la Aurora, Seville, Andalucía, Spain
||Since the 1400s, Seville has revered the
Virgin of the Dawn and the Virgin of Love in the Church of Santa Marina.
Both got new statues in 1978. A carving by Antonio J. Dubé de Luque
was blessed as the Virgen de la Aurora on October 29, 1978, replacing an
image of 1970 which became the new Virgen del Amor. Seville's Virgin of the
Dawn is the Sorrowful Mother transformed by the joy of Easter morning. Her
and Lasallian Sacramental Brotherhood of the Holy Cross and Confraternity of
Nazarenes of the Sacred Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Our Lady of the
Dawn and St. John Baptist de La Salle) carries her statue in
procession on Easter, bringing the city's spectacular Holy Week to a
triumphant conclusion. Picture by Eduardo Fdez. López from "Noticias
