The Magic of the Cities.
Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

At the entrance, my bare feet on the dirt floor, Here, gusts of heat; at my back, white clouds. I stare and stare. It seems I was called for this: To glorify things just because they are.
The Temple of the Sacred Family, one of the major symbols of the Roma district, started being built in 1910 by the architect Manuel Gorozpe and the engineer Miguel Rebolledo, and was sponsored by the Jesuit congregation. After a period of inactivity, the Parrish was inaugurated on November 19 1925, date in which its tower and clock were given their blessing.
This temple reflects several styles fashionable in the early 20th Century, among which we can find elements of the neo-Romanesque, neo-Gothic and eclectic styles that manage to come together harmoniously in this place.
One of the most outstanding aspects of this temple are its beautiful stained glass windows, which were made by the Italian company Talleri, and in which we can observe representations of different Bible passages and the mysteries of the Christian faith. [mexicocity-guide.com]
