Jesus walks on Good Friday in Pilsen

Jesus walked with his crown of thorns on Good Friday in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood.

The predominantly Mexican community has held an annual Via Crucis, or Living Way of the Cross since 1977. The reenactment of Jesus' crucifixion drew thousands of residents as the procession went down 18th Street.

I was one of them and share with you this photo gallery as a Good Friday offering.
