More Morada

Long View

White cross and Steeple

At the end of November I offered a lengthy post about La Morada de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe which I described as the mother ship of Northern New Mexico’s 19 Catholic lay chapels or meeting houses. I was in error as there were as many as 35 of these places of worship. In any event that post became the skeleton of what will be my March-April contribution to Shadow and Light magazine. I’ve learned more about the Catholic Church's resolution to award sole control of the sacred place to the Penitente Brotherhood. I am not swayed. It was overreach by the parish priest. My article will be an expanded version of what you read on November 27.

13th Station of the Cross

In a more recent post, I spoke to the mind-numbing effort to consolidate the contents of many external hard drives into two devices. Achieving that was rewarding unto itself. But the icing on the proverbial cake was uncovering a cache of morada photographs that I knew I had but couldn’t find. Here are a few.

Congratulaitons on your March-April contribution to Shadow and Light Magazine. I look forward to reading it. In the meantime, your blogs are nibbles of things to come. The 13th station of the cross is quite evocative, if one ponders what the Penitentes do. The White Cross and Steeple of the Morada is a bit of enchantment in itself. Glad you discovered the cache during the chaotic but rewarding process of photograph consolidation. Thanks for the morning lift!
