On April 8th, Muggsi and I went to mass at the Mission San Xavier del Bac in honor of my mother's birthday. The church was built by the Jesuits in 1783. Architecturally soft on the outside.
Oh, and the morning light.
Inside, marvelous statues. And dark...such contrast to the bright desert light outside.
The Mass was lovely. A mix of Indians (the church is situated on a reservation), tourists and locals attended the mass. Sitting in this beautiful space, remembering my mother on her birthday was peaceful.
