While the pilgrims spent like money like water on candles, wax offerings and religious artifacts; the beggars in the marketplace went scrambling after them , hoping to tug at a heartstring, or maybe get the small change returned by the shopkeepers into their own hands . .

Seen here is one such beggar, who has positioned himself in such a way, it appears he is asking God directly for help, not the people. (The white building in the background is the Basilica, the main hall of worship of the diety)
He was partially blind I think, and didnt move around much.
He stretched out his arms to beg even when thee was not a single passerby anywhere near him . .
