Candelaria all aglow again for Candlemas

JESUS MENDOZA, the Vicar of Candelaria who died last October, was remembered in the numerous events held on Sunday in celebration of the Candlemas fiesta. Prior to the celebrations, held annually on 2nd February in Candelaria in honour of the Virgin Mary (the Virgin of Candelaria), patron saint of Tenerife and the other Canary Islands, there was the usual, well-attended procession of candles.
