Brotherhood of Our Father Jesus of the Good Happening in his encounter with his Holy Mother Virgin of the Pains on the street of Grief and Holy Mary of Charity.
It was founded in 1973 in the parish of San Andrésby a group of old students and people related to the Parish School of San Andrés, with the support of priest Manuel Márquez; this brotherhood shows the result of a continuous effort. Its first station of penance took place on Holy Tuesday 1974. In 1977 the image of María Santísima de la Caridad (Holy Mary of Charity) was included in the penitential retinue, but it was substituted in 1991 by the new sculpture we can see nowadays.
Parish of San Andrés Apóstol. Although it was remodelled in the 18th century, it is one of the Fernandine Churches as it was founded after the Christian reconquest. The current Chapel of the Tabernacle and the side façade, clearly medieval, date back to that time. In the Baroque period, and thanks to Bishop Marcelino Siuri, the temple was transformed, extended and enriched, thus adapting it to the taste of the time. During the last years of the 20th century, it was deeply restored, thus unveiling its current splendour.

The image of Nuestro Padre Jesús del Buen Suceso (Our Father of the Good Happening) is an anonymous work from the 17th century, which was restored by Antonio Castillo Ariza in 1972, by Juan Martínez Cerrillo between 1973 and 1978, and by Antonio Bernal and Francisco Romero in 1988. Therefore, it is difficult to assess the work in order to attribute an author, mainly due to the continuous restorations it has been through. However, it is usually suggested the circle of Pedro Roldán y Nieva, a master who worked and stood out in Seville in the 17th century.
The scene represents the encounter between Jesus and his Mother, the Virgen de los Dolores (Virgin of Pains), in the Street of Grief, before Saint John Evangelist and Saint Mary Magdalene. In 2006 the sculptures of Mary Salome and Mary of Clopas went on procession for the first time, thus forming, together with Mary Magdalene, the group of the “Three Marys“. However, the brotherhood has thought about including three more images on the pace: two Romans and a Man of Cyrene; all of them by Miguel Ángel González Jurado.
Nowadays, the Lord is carrying the Cross over his right shoulder, with the help of the figure of Simon of Cyrene. He is leaning forwards, his head slightly turned left, looking at his Mother, who is kneeling in front of him. The crown of thorns, of up to four branches, is making blood fall down Jesus’s swarthy face.

The Virgen de la Caridad (Holy Mary of Charity) was carved in 1991 by religious sculptor from Córdoba Miguel Ángel González Jurado, substituting an old virgin by Joaquín Jesús Sánchez.
With an oval face and swarthy face, this virgin has reddened eyes and marked cheeks, showing her pain behind the Lord carrying the Cross. This suffering can be seen through the frowned eyebrows and the parted lips.
