Inglesia de los Pobres

While waiting to shop with Lourdes, I thought to take a few pictures of our meeting spot. She had suggested the Inglesia de los Pobres as a shady central and comfortable spot to meet up in Colonia Reforma. In a city full of 16th century churches, the simplcity and comfort of this people’s church is very refreshing and has an elegance and a charm that many of the historical churches have misplaced or never even had.

After the granduer of San Domingo and the gilded contrasts of poor but noble Tlacochohuya and rich but shallow Tlacolula, Pobres has an embrace, an appeal, like sorbet after an opulant meal. God welcomes all, finally, not just the rich and the poor.
