The story of San Paulinus played out through the streets of Brooklyn last Sunday, as Our Lady of Mount Carmel staged the culminating Giglio Feast. The event is meant to remember the Christian's figure's sacrifice: The bishop offered to trade places with a grieving widow's son, who had been sold into slavery. When word of Paulinus's deed spread, he was granted his freedom, and the celebration marks the the holy man's return home. Check out our slide show to see if the tale is apparent through the Williamsburg ritual.
