20180203: Dia de la Candelarai poster #3 in San Juan de los Lagos, Mexico

So the Feb 2 event is over & after in some cases walking for 30 days to get here, Dia de la Candelaria is over.

Thursday night I had a good place to see the light show on the “Saint’s Church” and made this poster of it. The big center photo is of the “Saint’d Object” in side the church itself.

Any way, I am having fun & building business finally here in town. This poster will be for sale the next time I am selling on the street. Today I got rained on and it was lunch time, so I picked up the new posters.

I Am considering going back out if the rain stops. Just light sprinkles when I came back a little bit a go.

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.
