B2b–2nd picture at mission B Carmel

B2b–2nd picture at mission B  Carmel

My own research: http://www.missionsantaines.org/treasures.html

I like this website: It has a picture of the vestment worn by Junipero Serra. It’s real.

Anyway, I took a picture of myself in the mirror of the room that housed the vestments that are on display.  It was dark in there.  No fog in Carmel that day, so it must have been the room.  It is delicious to imagine the priests wearing those vestments – although there was no air conditioning back then, so I hope they said mass early in the day!

I had my picture taken at the alter in Carmel because JS is buried there.  Beside the alter area there is a glass coffin with the remains of the original  JS wooden coffin; they lost and found him a couple of times and he is now reburied under the floor of the alter in a coffin like the glass one on display. (at least I think that is what they meant by “replica”).
