I enjoyed walking the grounds and seeing the church. The little room with soil seemed a bit too "hokey" to me. Must you really rub soil on yourself to have a moment with your Lord? Especially when everywhere around you is the beauty of New Mexico and the good work of this church.
What made my visit incredible was the opportunity to visit with Fr Roca - the 95 year-old priest and former pastor. Just a chance meeting with him in one of the little cafés on the grounds. Fr Roca and the passion he put into the place out of his love and service to The Lord is what the Santuario is truly about. Thank you for such a lovely time, sir.
