Sunday Sermon and Some More Santa Fe

22 May

“All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust.”

~J. M. Barrie

I had the honor of attending Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi in Santa Fe. A beautiful cathedral and lovely service. I especially liked that the hymns were sung both in English and Spanish. 

The sermon was a simple one. My take on it… Just follow the commandments. It doesn’t get easier than that. Even if you don’t particularly believe in a stone tablet that God engraved on a mountain top and gave to Moses, all the principals apply. Honor God, parents, spouses, neighbors, don’t lie, cheat, steal, and treat EVERYONE with respect. Easy peasey. 

The Gospel ends…
Whoever has my commandments and observes them is the one who loves me. And whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and reveal myself to him.”



I lit a candle and offered my prayer and petitions. 

After church, the plaza was packed with people on a lovely spring day. There was an antique car show, and entertainment at the bandstand of Folclorico Dancers. Dancers of all ages in colorful costumes. 


Great old cars lined all four streets of the plaza. 

Another fine day in Santa Fe.
