Rural Mexican Church–Iglesia Guadalupe

Rual Mexican church

A simple church it is, with writing on it. Text is painted on with care, along with an image of the Virgin Mary below it.

The color–robin’s egg blue– enhances the picture, giving it a subtle coolness.

More text on the side of the building reveals a deep religious faith. It reads–Aparecio la Virgen a las 8 de la manana el dia 12 de Diciembre de 2008.

What does that mean exactly?

The Virgin appeared at 8 in the morning on Dec. 12, 2008.
