Detail of the Basilica of St Francis in San Francisco, California. The statue is of Father Juniper.


Adding on to Rob’s post here’s a little research I did about this historical structure from 1717. The settlement was named for St. Francis of Assisi, the founder of the Franciscan Order, but was also commonly known as “Mission Dolores” owing to the presence of a nearby creek named Arroyo de Nuestra Señora de los Dolores, meaning “Our Lady of Sorrows Creek.”

  1. That click is so good! It is almost like Father Juniper is looking into your soul.

    Rob has done a great job here and thank you darling Natz for giving us a platform to see this wonderful work.

    Much love!

  2. Thanks for sharing this lovely post by Rob, Natasha and adding that bit of information. I had heard of Mission Dolores though, but not how it got its name. An interesting angle to the shot, I should say! Almost as if Fr Juniper is looking at you!

    1. Wow, I did not notice that. Thanks for pointing out.

      It actually is as though Father Juniper looks back at you, blessing you back. So grateful to Rob for posting this wonderful detail.

      Thanks Esha. Much love <3
