Though we are not Catholic, we have visited this site and the nearby stores, walks, and other chapels several times. It keeps drawing us back, for we sense a permanency and power in this pilgrimage site of healing and faith. The chapel is over 200 years old, modest in size and furnishings, but the testimonies of miracles and healed lives are too numerous to ignore. This is a one-of-a-kind site in the USA, sometimes called "the Lourdes of the Southwest". We met the priest, now 95 years old, who came from Spain 60 years ago to serve and is still doing so! Much has been built and added in recent years, but does not detract from the sanctuary itself.
