(Woman Going to Church)

15" x 12", pen and ink on paper

Continuing on my series of women from the early 20th century, I saw this picture of a woman going to church in an old postcard - clutching her prayer book, rosary and wearing her small "belo". It reminded me so much of an old aunt (God bless her soul) who bears the same accoutrements every Sunday morning on her way to her regular CWC sponsored "misas".

It's interesting that several generations of women later, I still see the same parade of religiosity in our Catholic country. The dress have changed but the piety is still the same.
