Make this pilgrimage no matter your faith, interests, state of well-being. Take your time here and let the sanctity of the place overcome your thoughts, ideas and notions. Move from one end of the church to the altar and anteroom slowly. Drink in the centuries of healing, hope and openness. Wait out the folks coming and going in the holy room and try to have it to yourself, kneel at the edge of the dirt pit and open up to the possibility of feeling its power. Take some of the dirt home with you [bring a baggie or two]. Walk around in the back area, visit the stream and pause. The peace here is palpable and lasts. Best Holy Chimayo Green Chili powder is across the street in the courtyard mercado. Your omelets will be infused with the holy spirit of incredible taste!
