Santiago Atitlán

On a Christmas Weekday

Today’s gospel portion: “Behold, the Lamb of God.”

Plans change. Actually ended up at 2A Avenida, Panajachel 07000. A tourist area. Certainly comfortable and luxurious. Tomorrow (today) boat tour then driving to next location. I have never holiday with a group before. Very nice. Fr Quesnel is excellent leader and planner.

Santiago Atitlán was the site of considerable state-sponsored violence during the country’s civil war. Some of the most notable incidents that occurred during the war include the assassination of Roman Catholic priest Stanley Rother by right-wing death squads on 28 July 1981, and the massacre of 14 people (and wounding of 21 others) when the Guatemalan Army opened fire on a crowd of unarmed civilians on 2 December 1990.
