A bloody handprint of a penitent called battenti, or beater, is seen on a wall during a procession through the streets in the town of Verbicaro, southern Italy April 2, 2010. The penitents hit their legs with a "cardillo" (a cork with attached pieces of glass), and then, bleeding, walk in groups of three through the streets and stop in front of all the churches and chapels in the town. The tradition began in the thirteenth century and serves as penitence for Christ's death. REUTERS/Alessandro Bianchi (ITALY - Tags: RELIGION)
