The Healing Power of the Santuario de Chimayó

This chapter brings the history of the Santuario and debates over religious ownership into the present. In 1959 Father Casimiro Roca (of the Sons of the Holy Family) becomes the first full-time priest at the Santuario in its history, and under his leadership, the place grows from an important regional site of devotion to an international pilgrimage and tourism destination. His legacy continues at the Santuario as various groups, from the archdiocese to Chimayó’s local residents to tourists, articulate different visions for the Santuario’s future. The chapter also includes an analysis of devotees’ letters to the Santuario concerning their miraculous cures from the dirt.

Keywords:   Father Casimiro Roca, miraculous cures, Sons of the Holy Family, tourism
