Vacation 2011-2012: San Xavier del Bac Mission (Tucson)

This mission was absolutely beautiful.  We spent probably 3 times as long as either of us were expecting to spend there:  there really was that much to see!   It's an amazingly stunning place - both in terms of the church and its buildings, and the people we met there.  If you're ever in the Tucson area, you NEED to see this mission!

Santa driving a big-rig!

The white building against the brilliantly blue sky was overwhelming.

I loved the ceilings - so pretty!

Every inch inside the church was covered in art.  It was beautiful.

A replica of the grotto at Lourdes.  The sun's glare in this picture is awesome, in my opinion. (that's a statue of Mary, within the glare)
