Guillermo Hernández Pinto, a parish priest in San Cristóbal de las Casas, blesses a palm frond held by Marco Antonio Martínez on Palm Sunday. Ordinarily, the Chiapas city would hold a traditional Mass and procession of worshippers through the streets for the religious holiday, but the tradition was changed this year due to concerns over the spread of the coronavirus. Instead of marching, the parish priest rode to different neighborhoods in a pickup truck, blessing water, pictures and palm fronds along the way.
