Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

I too have gone to Mass in Mexico a couple of times usually at Christmas or Easter and have felt the some disconnect because of language and being Protestant.One time though many years ago me and a friend when to the cathedral just off the Square in Puerto Vallarta for Christmas mass.The place as you may expect was standing room only jampacked.Being in tight with the locals like that gave it a greater sense of community and at one point the priest invited everyone to greet their neighbour as we do here.The whole thing was a moving experience for me.
I may have missed it but what did you think of the Rivera mural across the square?
