He is there in La Iglesia de Santo Domingo and the Convento Santo Domingo. He shares his miracles with the first woman to be made a saint and another. During the tour guide’s talk, I thought about how long it took the Roman Catholic Church to canonize him and make him a saint. Over a hundred years for the man who prayed underneath a staircase, who could not be made a priest because he was of mixed ethnicity; because he was Black. I think about his skull up there, exposed in a small elaborate casket of gold (I’d hope) and glass.
I just wonder.
