Summary: An spiritual exercise to be practiced every Tuesday, honoring Saint Joaquín and Saint Ana.
Historical Notes: The nineteenth century was a period of nation building and state formation throughout Latin America. In the case of Colombia, the emerging Colombian state and the Catholic Church established a close relation, and together promoted a national identity centered on the Hispanic and Pre-Hispanic roots of the country. Catholicism was an essential component of this identity. As LaRosa and Mejía have put it "Catholicism emerged as a central force in building a common identity for Colombians during the formative years of the nineteenth century and well into the twentieth. Catholicism unified a state that was trying to construct a nation" [Michael LaRosa and Germán Mejía, Colombia: A Concise Contemporary History (Lanham: Rowman and Littlefield, 2012), p. 63]. The collective reading of novenas, sermons and other religious texts contributed to create this new sense of belonging.
Donor Notes: Prayers honoring St. Joaquín & Ana to be said on Tuesdays. - J.L.H.
