En årlig tradition medfører tumult, når børn i alle aldre kæmper om pengesedler kastet fra et kirketårn

Hvad har penge egentlig med religion at gøre? Det spørgsmål er der mange svar på, og et af svarene kan du se i denne billedserie.

I går kunne børn i Paraguay opleve, at det regnede med penge, for i byen Guarambare nær landets hovedstad udspillede der sig en årlig tradition. Den katolske kirke hylder nemlig en gang om året Jomfru Maria for de goder, hun giver befolkning. 

Præsterne viser deres taknemmelighed ved at betale noget tilbage til byen i form af pengesedler, som kastes ud fra byens kirketårn. Her kan du se, hvilken opstand der i går opstod blandt børnene, som greb efter sedler.
