Capes, crowns, queens and pots of boiled beef honor the Holy Spirit in Santa Cruz

Published Sunday July 3

SANTA CRUZ >> As the legend goes, Queen Isabel promised God she would give away her crown if He would help her feed the people of Portugal.

When the Holy Ghost delivered 2 ships full grain and animals to her famished country, Queen Isabel is remarked to have led a procession through Lisbon to its cathedral, where she left her crown.

For the past seven hundred years, Isabel has been honored as a saint and her fourteenth century procession immortalized in the annual Portuguese-American Holy Ghost Parade and Festival or “festa,” which took place in city centre Santa Cruz on Sunday.

When asked if she made Giada’s cape, Rinaldo laughed.
