At the Ave Maria, which is at 24 hours, we saw them lighting up their Wax-Tapers before the Images of the Madonna in the Piazza; and, like good Husbands, as soon as that was over, which was in a Minute or two, they immediately put them out again. In some places they have Evening Litanies, which they sing at the Altars, under a Picture or Image of the Madonna in the Streets; and 'tis pleasant enough to see a parcel of Children only, got together sometimes, before one of those Altars, (Girls very often) one of them, the Prolocutor, calling over the Names of the Saints, and the rest joining in a Chorus of Ora pro Nobis to each.
