Last Look: The Virgen Misionera Madre De los Inmigrantes Shrine
Back in April of this year, I returned to the spot just northeast of Graymoor where I had seen the destroyed shrine. The bucket of debris was in basically the same place, but someone had been by to rebuild, if just a bit; nailed the remnants of the sign to a nearby tree, and created a small pile of logs on the pedestal, propping up a stone that reads “Jesus is my way.”
On that stone, people have placed little trinkets: coins, a guitar pick, a section of bike chain. I imagine them all being a prayer for someone.
