Well, the pilgrims are coming so yep, time to design new posters.

yes, I did go inside to photograph the “religious object”.

Then got out quickly.

Seeing homeless, cripples, people on their knees, people coming in to pray for help in rags while the church brags of all the wealth that they are with all the gold…

Sorry folks, I have Revelations 2:17 so personally I know the “Gods” are not pleased by such things.

But 1000s of years of the churches (yes all churches of all religions) of this kind of practice, I am not going to even try to change them now, sure way to get killed by someone somewhere.

Some of these people will be walking for 2 or 3 weeks before getting here.

Based on the number of bandaged knees & ankles so far seen, their walk is a long hard one, let them enjoy their visions & miracles where possible.

So whatever you celebrate, in whatever style you do it, may it be happy & fun.

(personally I hate this time of year too many family members have used Nov. to Feb. to destroyed everything in my life. But I lived in snow country for 25 years so I love winter itself, without humans.)
