The Custody will not travel the streets of Jaén this year


Corpus 2020 will be limited to the traditional mass prior to the procession and the Eucharistic triduum from June 19 to 21, according to the older brother of La Buena Muerte
The Royal Sacramental Brotherhood of the Holy Christ of the Good Death, which currently governs Manuel Rico, has in the Cathedral of Jaén its canonical headquarters and the scene of much of its brother activity, which covers not only the brotherhood's own agenda , but a good number of acts and cults in which the black and white collective takes an active part.

One of these inevitable dates is the celebration of Corpus Christi; not in vain, the brotherhood unites to its residence in the greater temple of the diocese its sacramental character. In this year of the coronavirus, unfortunately, the processional procession that has clothed the Custody since ancient times, "so transparent of tenderness and wheat", as Gerardo Diego described it, will not travel the streets of the Jaén capital on June 14, according to the report. Rich.

"Yesterday I was talking to the dean and he told me that the procession will not come out," says the older brother. In his words, neither the act of exaltation nor the presentation of the poster of this party, which will follow the same steps, can be developed. However, assures the maximum responsible brother of La Buena Muerte, the faithful will have the opportunity to pay homage to the Blessed Sacrament within the church the same morning of June 14, the Lord's Day, during the traditional mass prior to the departure of the procession .

"Yes, the Eucharistic Triduum will also be celebrated in the Cathedral, by Don Carmelo Zamora, parish priest of San Bartolomé; it will be on the 19th, Friday, 20 (Saturday) and 21, Sunday," he clarifies. In the air is the eighth of Corpus Christi, a liturgy typical of the last day of the triduum, which would include a cloister procession and, incidentally, would somewhat alleviate the desire to see Christ Sacramented on his great day: "I do not know if he is leaving to do or not, that will have to be studied ", he adds. Everything will depend on how the pandemic runs at that time, already in the last phase of the de-escalation if the Covid-19 does not prevent it.

INCREASING COFRADE ACTIVITY

The Good Death tries to maintain the brotherly rhythm despite the circumstances and adapted to the possibilities that confinement allows: "Every Friday in May we pray the rosary, oriented towards the Virgen de las Angustias, at twelve o'clock. A member prays it every day of the brotherhood, it is recorded and prayed in communion with all the brothers who want to join. We had the habit of praying to the Virgin in her chapel and, as it cannot be, we continue with the same rhythm that we had, now through the networks ", indicates Manuel Rico.

In this line of constant activity, the brotherhood makes available to its confreres and younger devotees some cofrade diplomas to download from their website, which recognize their effort and sacrifice since the quarantine began: "We took them out a few days before the children They could go out, last Thursday or Friday, to prove how well they have behaved in this period that they have been locked up. "

A precious detail that includes the anagram of the brotherhood and that of the military corps most linked to Holy Wednesday according to the Cathedral: "The Legion appears as an example of discipline, formality, seriousness, values ​​very much of The Good Death, and is signed by the King, who presides over a brotherhood of legionary brotherhoods to which we also belong, "concludes the older brother of one of the few truly royal brotherhoods among which they are part of Holy Week here.
