There will always be no Megareliquia in the Cerro de las Noas de Torreón in honor of San Judas Tadeo, the saint of difficult and desperate causes, and one of the most revered in La Laguna.
The foregoing was confirmed this Thursday by Víctor Manuel Gómez, rector of the Sanctuary of Christ the King of Cerro de las Noas, after a meeting held by the Diocese with the Lagunera Region Health Operative Board.
“As the Sanctuary of Christ the King, I am going to show solidarity with the temple of San Judas Tadeo, that they will not do kermesses and they will not make relics, So I am opposed to the mega-relic not being made too, people can do it at home, “he said.
Gómez limited himself to saying that the suspension is also to “not fail” the health protocols, in addition to the fact that currently “we have some parents with COVID-19”.
This would be the second year in a row that the Megarelic has been suspended.
At the end of last September, the rector had informed that this activity would be carried out, with reduced capacity and strictly following health measures to avoid COVID-19 infections.
The request would be sent to the City Council, as well as to the Technical Subcommittee of Health of La Laguna to know what would be the number of people who could climb the Cerro to attend the megarelic that would take place next Thursday, October 28.
The priest indicated that they had also asked the National Chamber of the Restaurant and Seasoned Food Industry (Canirac) to organize the event to which universities in the region would be invited to cook barbecue and traditional soups. In this edition, Rural women were also going to be invited, as they are experts in preparing these foods with firewood.
