Blessed Mother is the First Jesus would Go To

This is a video of a traditional procession of The Blessed Mother being the first to see Jesus, on Easter.  It's a Dominican custom, in the birth place of St. Dominic, Caleruega, Spain.  It's performed on the Memorial of St. Vincent Ferrer, a Dominican friar who spoke of Our Lady being the first to speak to Our Lord.  (Kind of make sense that she would be the first He would go to.)

The procession of men carrying a statue of Our Lord start from a different starting point than the other procession of women carrying a statue of Our Lady.  They meet at the convent of cloistered Dominican nuns.  Together they all process to the village church.
