SHADES OF CORPUS
CHRISTI IN CUSCO



When the Saints Talk


I
t is said that in the Ancient Capital of the Inca Empire, the Saints and the Virgins would talk during all the nights of the octave of Corpus Christi. It is also said that the images, serene and quiet along the day, spent hours planning the future of their parishes. Evidently, everything happened when there was not a Christian awake in the Cathedral of Cusco.

The Saints and the Virgin did not keep silent
during the octave of the Corpus Christi. They talk, chat, they maybe even joke but they do it with low voice to avoidwaking up their loving officials who stay at the Cathedral in order to take care of them and be with them though they always fall asleep.

The images are indeed well known and have conversations "really long and interesting" when the Faithful leave andclose the doors of the temple. However, it is very difficult to know what they talked about, but the conversations must have been quite important: heaven and God issues of bishops and priests, complex things as Saints issues.

The conversations are really
long and maybe amusing. The fifteen images coming from different temples of the Imperial City are welcome by the "Señor de los Temblores" (The Sir of Trembling), host of the Cathedral and Patron of Cusco who, according to the parishioners, takes the pricked nails out, jumps out of the crucifix and goes to the temple of "Nuestra Señora de Belén" to visit his mother when it is possible.

This just happens at nights, as in the mornings the saints stay rigid listening to Quechua prayers with indulgence or hearing the shrilling fireworks that explode in the sky of Cusco during the processions of the Corpus Christi celebrated 60 days after the Sunday of Resurrection.

In this Celebration of Faith, there are always dancers and the enthusiastic rhythms of the musical bands. There are also groups of "Ñustas" and angels, thousands of Faithful and tons of eager officials who are in charge of all the details so the pass of the Saint or Patron of their community will be unforgettable.

“The catholic saints and virgins scour the Main Square, as the inca mummies, in beautiful litters of precios metals, did before, during a ceremony made in honor to the Tayta Inti or Sun God.”
