Laurie Beth Zuckerman shares her photos of the most sorrowful and powerful of Madre Dolorosa statues in the Santuario de Atotonilco, in the countryside outside of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. This historic church is exquisite in every single way, and ranks as my all time favorite church in colonial Mexico.

This is Day 11 of "A Virgin a Day" hosted by Rebecca Brooks. To witness all the other wonderful contributions by artists around the country, log onto Rebecca Brooks site:

She is divine! Imposingly tall! What is she made of? What a beautiful church!

Oh MY!
Breath-taking photographs.
I would love to see the other statues close up too. We don't have any place like this in the east.
I have to swallow my fear and travel.

dear one,

each morning we have thrown open the doors to our hearts.

we have called out glory, love, compassion.

day after day we have set out welcoming chairs in the

house of belonging.

lifting the veil of sacred existence.

beveled off the edges of difference and distance

to see more deeply the

unbearable beauty of simply being


for this and so much more i thank you,

and look forward to our forever

Breathtaking, as always. I see that I posted in 2011, but here I am again in 2013 saying that I hope one day to go with y'all to San Miguel.

My visit to Antotonilco last year was much too short. I'm looking forward to savoring the beauty on a leisurely visit in February.
