In his letters, Mínguez paints a picture of the region’s day-to-day economic and cultural activity. The chaplain first notes that the statue was created by a man named Manuel Bal, who created other wooden statues for churches in the region. He then describes the successful harvests of various grains like wheat, rye, oats, and barley and stores of wine.

I knew there were always a couple of 50ies in Green Lantern’s butt for emergencies, but this is new.

What would Jesus … have up his butt?
