San Luis de la Paz, Gto. Thursday, January 19, 2012. Tonight, devotees worship the Virgin of San Juan de los Lagos, as a preamble to the pilgrimage which they will begin tomorrow to her shrine, located in the city of the same name, in the state of Jalisco.
The faithful are in a business in the first block of Velasco Ibarra Street praying and watching her sleep. A wind band plays melodies, brightening the wait. Fireworks are launched into the air, indicating the place of the solemnity.
There are two major pilgrimages going from San Luis de la Paz to San Juan de los Lagos. The first one leaves tomorrow, on January 20, and the second one the day after tomorrow, on the 21st. The Sanluisdelapaz.com team will cover the departure of both.
