The Beautiful San Xavier Mission in Tucson, Az

Wednesday, January 17, 2018

We left Phoenix this morning, and headed an hour and half south to Tucson.  Man the traffic was terrible going through Phoenix- and into Tucson not much better. Hard for us country folk to get used to the city! Everything too is so far to get to- driving wise. You really have to drive for up to an hour at least just to get to an attraction from where your parked... but there are interesting things to see.

Today we went to the San Xavier Del Bac Mission- a national historic landmark, founded as a Catholic Mission in 1692.It is the oldest intact European structure in Arizona. The interior is filled with an amazing original statuary and mural paintings.

We both lit candles at the church ( $3 each) and said prayers of healing for ourselves and others.

The church though is amazing and truly touches your soul being there.
