“A mission rich in significance”

La Mision de Corpus Christi de San Antonio de la Ysleta del Sur, established in 1680, owes its heritage to Pueblo traditions, Franciscan Missionaries and Spanish Colonial life in Northern New Mexico. This and the other three missions established here after the Pueblo Revolt of 1680 are children of the pain of intolerance between cultures and forced emigration. Though in the present State of Texas, this mission life and identity is knitted integrally to the Missions of the New Kingdom of St. Francis – present day New Mexico. It is important to understand the history, culture, religion and lifestyles indigenous peoples, called Pueblos by the Spaniards (because they lived in towns), before it is possible to understand what happened in the clash of civilizations. Who were the conquistadores and Franciscans and their purpose, often odds also played a decisive role.

This old mission has recently been completely redone on the outside; the interior is closed for restoration and no date for reopening has been set. It is presently completely gutted so it'll be a while, I reckon.
