I still can’t get over the priest at the Sanctuario de Chimayo in Chimayo, N.M., and the horrible man who attacked me so viciously with his foul SPANISH disgusting mouth at the Santa Fe Plaza park, just because I refused to buy his filthy burrito from his filthy body, made by his filthy disgusting hands. I hope the police catch him verbally abusing someone else so they can throw him out of Santa Fe and out into the desert where the rats can devour him alive!

Yes, he took advantage of me, because I was a girl alone. I still remember each and every move the Army taught me in self-defense, and could have easily left the BASTARD sprawled on the ground in agony, but what would that have accomplished, aside from finding myself the loser by going to jail. I now regret the bastard didn’t try to lay a finger on me, which have given me all the excuse in the world to do to him what I wish with every fiber in my being I could have done to him in 5 seconds flat!

The priest in Chimayo has me very upset still. The more I think about it, the more I find it inexcusable for him to forbid tourists from taking pictures of the Sanctuario de Chimayo for the purpose of forcing tourists into buying his postcards. As I said before, we all buy postcards anyway, even if he would allow us to take pictures of the inside of churches, plus we all donate in all the little boxes for donations inside the church. I will most definitely write to this PRIEST MAN and express how I feel about his abuse! The beloved priests from all the other churches wholeheartedly allowed us to take pictures!

I’ll be DAMNED if a mere money hungry PRIEST MAN and his female WATCH DOG kept me from taking the pictures I went there to take! The Sanctuario de Chimayo DOES NOT belong to him, but to the Lord and to all of us who travel from so far to go there because of our faith!! What a crying shame that I had to stoop so low as to go around the church grounds like a thief in the dark, just to take some pictures of the interior of this beloved little church!!

I will be posting pictures everyday here of all the things I saw in Santa Fe. I bought and lit four candles in each and every one of the churches I visited there; one for myself and my family, one for our soldiers in Iraq, one for EVERY single one of my LJ friends who TRULY care for me, and the 4th for a SECRET someone who has become extremely special and BELOVED to me here in LJ!

I asked the Lord to give me a sign if it was okay with Him or not, for me to take these pictures, and He gave me the sign! The very last of these pictures in Chimayo, was the last picture I took, because I had used up all the memory from my digital camera! I took 167 pictures from the moment I started for Santa Fe, New Mexico, and took oodles of pics, but I somehow had just enough memory to take the very LAST picture in Chimayo!! :o)

HERE ARE THE Sanctuario de Chimayo PICTURES I took. Just CLICK on the links to view the pics, and if you wish to take them for yourselves, PLEASE do so, because they belong to ALL OF US, and NOT ONLY to that PRIEST MAN and his GUARD DOG!!!


This is how the little church
looked like in 1910

I waited until everyone had gone and snuck in the side
door you see in this picture. I somehow missed the
RUDE WATCH DOG that was still inside!!

I went to that Mission about 8 years ago. I still have holy water and sand from there. It is a very creepy place, one of the few places I have been in that creeped me out so bad i was actually on my best behaviour.

Holy Water and Holy Sand
I also have Holy water and sand I brought back with me when I went with my Dad to pray for a miracle.

I'm glad you were on your best behavior after your visit! And speaking of creepy, wait until I post a couple of STRANGE pictures I took when I ventured off to some side road out in the boomies of these two grave sites!

I've been on my best one, too, for about two months, visiting all the Catholic churches in E.P., and taking pictures of them. I'll be sharing them all with you kids! Eventually, I'll be boing back to my old obnoxious ways! :o)

I must admit, never had I felt so close to the Lord, until this last visit to the little Chimayo chapel, and the church where they have the miraculous stairway!

You always have the most incredible pictures from your adventures. You are one of my most favorite reads. Keep up the good work.
Oct. 16th, 2007 06:25 pm (UTC)
It makes me very happy that you have enjoyed my pictures!

Today, I'll add more pictures of the Miraculous Stairway in Santa Fe. I hope you enjoy them!

Re: Always amazing
I also like to look at these old churches and reflect on the people who were there when they were built.

So many prayers for miracles have been answered in the Sanctuario de Chimayo Church, and you can see the proof by all the things people have left there.

I'm pretty sure the priest is the one who has forbidden pictures be taken, because the employee at the gift shop said the reason for it was for people to buy the postcards.

If that old lady had approached you, as she did me, you'd find it spooky!! :o)

Great bunch of pictures. Thanks for sharing. Do you know the story of the sand? I am curious about that.
Oct. 16th, 2007 06:35 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

I've searched for the story on the but haven't found anything. I'm sure the gift shop there sells the books, and perhaps I should have bought one.

All I know is that the sand in the little hole continues to fill itself. The Cross in the church is suppose to be the miraculous one, but the holy sand has taken its place as the main attraction.

I hope you someday go see for yourself. It's quite amazing!

I found some stuff late last night on the WEB that explained it to my satisfaction. THanks.

I will keep it in mind if I ever get a chance to go back to NM. There is a mountain in the northern part that has metallic meteorite and I would like to search for them with my detector some day also.

Well, the "priest" has no faith if he's doing that to get money. God is the provider. If he had faith, God would provide. Not to mention that if more people took pictures, then more people would eventually come to the church due to word of mouth -- which is the best advertising one could get. After all, [judging by your pics] the place is beautiful and full of culture, so who wouldn't want to go there? It seems so homie.

Oct. 16th, 2007 07:10 pm (UTC)
And God most definitely provides, because I saw many people putting money into the little boxes found throughout the church, plus the gift shop was packed with people buying many things.

It's sad when greed enters the hearts of men who are only the shepherds of these holy places. Some forget this fact, and start believing they are God.

I hope you someday visit this beautiful place!
Oct. 16th, 2007 08:07 pm (UTC)
Well said.

Is that an invite? :P
Oct. 15th, 2007 11:58 pm (UTC)
What wonderful photographs. Thanks for sharing them mi amiga.
Oct. 16th, 2007 07:02 pm (UTC)
You're welcomed Amigo querido!

Hope you have time to see the recent ones I've added of the Miraculous Stairway!
Oct. 16th, 2007 12:33 am (UTC)
you crack me up, one post it's let's love the muslims...then it's fuck the mexicans on the other...don't let one burrito salesmen turn you off from Taco Bell...

Gee, quit being such a girl about this.
Oct. 16th, 2007 06:58 pm (UTC)
You are so silly! I've never said that about the Mexicans, but I still stand behind my last comment about loving the Muslims, because Christians are suppose to love everyone! :o)

I'd love to send that fella in your icon to that BASTARD burrito man, and have him do what he's doing to the guy in the icon! heh heh

Now, hoow in the world can a girl not act like a girl when she's been called all those terrible names...huh?
Oct. 16th, 2007 02:16 am (UTC)
You sound like me sunshine I shoot as many pics as I can never know witch one will be the one you want :)
Never been there but great pics! I feel I have been there now :)

You know they told me the same thing when I was in Santa Fe now I just shoot until they tell me to stop :o) wink

Oct. 16th, 2007 07:00 pm (UTC)
I hope you enjoyed Santa Fe as much as I did.

I think that's a great idea, to take pictures until someone tells you to stop! :o)
Oct. 16th, 2007 08:30 am (UTC)
I will most definitely write to this PRIEST MAN
Make a postcard with one of your pictures! :P
Oct. 16th, 2007 06:53 pm (UTC)
Re: I will most definitely write to this PRIEST MAN
What an excellent idea! :o)
Oct. 16th, 2007 04:17 pm (UTC)
There is beauty to be seen there. I loved the last picture most of all.
Oct. 16th, 2007 06:53 pm (UTC)
Yes, there is so much beauty from the past, and so much faith in the people who travel from afar to see these marvelous things.

I've just posted pictures of the Miraculos Stairway. Hope you enjoy them!
Oct. 16th, 2007 09:05 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you enjoyed yourself despite those annoyances
Oct. 17th, 2007 12:29 pm (UTC)
Wow, what great pictures! I love the idea of sending Padre Pissant a postcard.

I friended you back, thanks.
