This procession is a major religious event in Bruges, to venerate the Holy Blood of Christ that was brought back from the 2nd Crusade. Today, the activities begin at 11 a.m. with a pontifical mass in the cathedral. The procession gets under way at 3 p.m., lasts about 1.5 hours, and closes with a blessing by the bishop. Through living tableaux, the procession tells the story of the Bible from the fall of Adam and Eve, through Abraham and Moses and to the New Testament stories of St. John the Baptist, the birth of Jesus, the Last Supper, and the Crucifixion on Calvary.
