Christ Comes Again to Totolapan
A wave of secularist reforms in the nineteenth century led to the increasingly marginal status of religious images, including the Cristo Aparecido, in the City of Mexico. The separation of church and state in Mexico culminated in state appropriation of church property, including religious images. In the midst of this crisis the Cristo was rescued and repatriated to its town of origin, Totolapan, Morelos where the people remembered their precious image even after his 280 year absence.
