The Sanctuary Of Chimayo

From my journal:

“May 12, 1993 . . . Chimayo, New Mexico – 90 Miles north of Albuquerque.  Today, I visited the Holy Shrine of Chimayo, called “The Lourdes Of America”, because of the many cures and healings worked in its Sanctuary.  Crutches and canes left by ailing pilgrims attest to the miraculous happenings in Chimayo whose Church was built in 1813.”

Every year, almost 300,000 people come to pray at this Holy Place with its seating capacity of 150 persons, a small Spanish style Church, dedicated to Mary, the Mother of God.

I prayed for many healings for myself, my family, and my friends in this Sanctuary to which many generations of believers had traveled in a great outpouring of faith.

A few weeks ago we celebrated Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit inflamed our hearts and minds with Love for God.  God can work miracles of healing in our own spirits in answer to our joyous prayers.  Who can measure the power of words spoken in faith and love to the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirt?
