Al llegar el mes de noviembre todo es fiesta y algarabía en Maracaibo, estado Zulia. Las calles se visten de colores, las plazas se adornan, las rutas turísticas-religiosas se activan y el pueblo entero se prepara para rendir homenaje a la Virgen de Chiquinquirá, mejor conocida como la Chinita de Maracaibo.

Por Joselina Rodríguez

Cada 18 de noviembre la población de San Juan de Dios en el estado Zulia se paraliza, para sumarse a las diversas actividades religiosas y culturales en honor a la venerada Chinita, que en este 2014 cumple 305 años desde su aparición. Conciertos, ferias, concursos, encuentros deportivos, festivales y más, forman parte de la agenda que ofrece toda la entidad zuliana, tanto a propios como a visitantes que se concentran en diversos puntos de la ciudad.

La Basílica sin duda alguna, es el escenario principal que recibe desde tempranas horas de la mañana a cientos de devotos que esperan ingresar al recinto, para pedir y agradecer a la Virgen por los favores concedidos. Les llevan flores, estampitas, mantas, cadenitas, velas y más, algunas compradas alrededor del santuario, otras confeccionadas por los creyentes como una especie de homenaje a la querida Chinita.

Algunos de los presentes llevan varias horas sin dormir, tras haber participado en el acostumbrado Amanecer Gaitero, que inicia la noche del 17 de noviembre y se extiende hasta el día siguiente. Numerosos artistas regionales, nacionales e internacionales, hacen acto de presencia en diferentes puntos de la ciudad, para ponerle música y sabor a esta Feria Internacional que antecede la época de la navidad.

Una valiosa oportunidad para afianzar la fé y resaltar las tradiciones religiosas que áun no han perdido vigencia en Venezuela y en sus diversas regiones. No sólo es la Basílica la que se viste de fiesta, son todas las iglesias, las capillas, los pequeños santuarios, las casas, los centros comerciales, el aeropuerto, cada pueblo, cada calle, por donde camines y te traslades, allí está la huella de la Patrona de Maracaibo, de la Virgen de Chiquinquirá, de la Chinita, de la Guajirita, de esa mujer que hoy cumple 305 años uniendo a Maracaibo y a todo el país.

La historia de la Virgen

Cuentan los regionalistas que una anciana guajira se encontró una tablita singular, mientras lavaba su ropa a orillas del Lago de Maracaibo. La mujer decidió llevarse el extraño objeto a su humilde hogar, pensando que podría servirle en sus quehaceres. Días después unos golpes en la pared llaman la atención de la mujer, quien con asombro veía como se formaba la imagen de una mujer con un niño en sus brazos. Era Nuestra Señora de Chiquinquirá. Desde ese entonces, los marabinos cada 18 de noviembre, rinden homenaje a la madre de Dios.

    Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it
    was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still
    new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for first-time blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number
    of websites for about a year and am nervous
    about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of
    your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    may not be a taboo matter but typically folks don’t talk about these topics.
    To the next! Many thanks!!

    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest
    writing a blog article or vice-versa? My
    site discusses a lot of the same topics as yours
    and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to send me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!
