The procession ends in front of the Parroquia Church where Mary has been waiting. The two statues proceed toward each other and stop feet apart. The amazing statue of Jesus has a moveable head. From under the palanquin the rope is slowly pulled three times, making Jesus look up to his mother. It is a captivating moment, and the crowd is hushed as they strain to see.
