As was the case in my earlier upload for the cathedral one block to the south, I chose to photograph the Church of Jesus kitty-corner. Calle 60 is not wide and obtaining a good POV is challenging. Now, in both instances, I have tried to centre on the atrium (courtyard) cross. That, of the Church of Jesus, is guarded on each side by a traffic light. The atrium cross carries a somewhat boastful message. Its base represents cuauhxicalli (yesterday's upload) - the stone altar used for human sacrifice in Tenochtitlan, Mexica culture. A column rises atop this, bearing the Cross of the Risen Lord. The intended message is that Christianity (Roman Catholicism) has triumphed over native beliefs in Mexico, and elsewhere. Possibly - and I leave the thought with you.
