The Gospel According to Totolapan
Over decades a series of renovations has softened some of the most dolorous features of the Cristo Aparecido and thus the physical image has come to more closely represent the faith of his devotees, for whom the theme of suffering is often muted or even absent. This book has suggested that the fate of Mexican cristos, like the Aparecido, and the fate of Mexico’s indigenous communities are wedded together. Today the emotions of tenderness and affection for the Cristo predominate spiritual engagement. This work has attempted to bring the reader to share, if even for a moment, in these same sentiments.
