THEME – “MIL MILAGROS”
Milagros is the Spanish word for “Miracles”. Traditionally Milagros are represented by charms that are made out of pewter and silver to decorate altars, shrines, or sacred objects to be used for protection, healing, or blessing. Milagros used as a name also refers to “Our Lady of Miracles” which is another title given to the Virgin Mother. What kinds of Milagros do you experience in your life? Do you use Milagros charms of your own? Use your creative license and think about what one thousand miracles looks like to you!
