Holy Week in Guatemala

Cory Zimmerman

 
Everything created is alive and has purpose. Everything that exists has an energy that sustains it. . . . Nothing exists by chance. Nothing is dead, everything is alive. From this arises the conception of the sacredness of the world.

Syncretism - is the combining of different beliefs, involving the merging or assimilation of several originally discrete traditions, especially in the theology and mythology of religion, thus asserting an underlying unity and allowing for an inclusive approach to other faiths. The Catholic fervor that currently exists in Guatemala has almost magical and mystical dyes due to the syncretism between the Mayan religion and the Catholic doctrine.
