Abstract: The Paola Good Friday Procession originated through a group of new residents hailing from Cottonera, where the tradition is deep-rooted. The Parish Church is dedicated to "Kristu Re" (Christ the King), thus making the Christological cult very popular with the clergy and parishioners. The idea of holding a procession may also have originated when the famous Senglea statue of L-Imgnobbi or IrRedentur (Christ the Redeemer) spent some days in the parish church before embarking on a special pilgrimage to the war-beaten Senglea.
