REGGIO CALABRIA “It is an extraordinary moment of unity and identity around which the prayers and passions of the people of Reggio are gathered”. With these words, the president Filippo Mancuso communicates that “As every year, by institutional custom, the Regional Council will pay homage to the sacred image of the Madonna della Consolazione of Reggio Calabria during the passage of the Vara in front of the seat of the Council”. Mancuso adds: “An awaited and felt event that has been renewed for almost five centuries and that this year too will attract thousands of believers in the processional path that will start from the Basilica of the Hermitage up to the arrival in the Cathedral”. According to President Mancuso: «The passage of the Vara is an event strongly rooted in the spiritual and popular traditions of the city, whose immense manifestation of faith and emotion brings together entire families under the protective gaze of its Lady. To her, with genuine devotion, the city entrusts its hopes, its anxieties, but above all its desires for a peaceful future for its young people and for the last ones ». Mancuso concludes: “With this feeling of respect and deference, I hope that the Calabrian Church’s commitment to major social issues can represent an encouragement and a formidable boost for institutions at all levels, so that they can build administrative actions aimed at the growth of our communities “.
