People come to the spring alongside the Basilica of Our Lady of the Angels to pray for healing of ailments and injuries. Many of them will leave behind a token or medallion, called a milagro, of the body part or organ that is injured or diseased. The church has displayed the milagros of body parts in glass cases in the basement of the church near the spring that I showed in yesterday's photo. This is a photo of one section of one of the cases.
The church displays manny of the milagros grouped together, so there might be an entire case of legs, or hearts, etc. I chose this photo because it displayed the greatest diversity of different types of organs or body parts. You will notice the milagros of those praying for help for their legs, feet, eyes, lungs, hands, spine, and more. (I apologize for the reflection in the glass covering the case, but it was unavoidable.)
I don't know about you, but this makes me wonder about the lives of each of the people who left these milagros. How are they and their families doing now?
