Holy Land of America!


No passport needed to visit this “Holy Land”–it’s right here in northern New Mexico! Long called the “Holy Land of America,” this land is like no other: inexplicable miracles, a weeping statue, prophecies and revelations, and rock formations that resemble scenes right out of the Bible. But holy doesn’t mean stuffy. Legends never are! Northern New Mexico is blessed with charming stories of the supernatural, incredible tales of the Wild West, and the most enchanting vistas this side of heaven!

Our spiritual adventure begins in Santa Fe–Spanish for “Holy Faith”–and then wends north and makes two loops: one through the Sangre de Cristo (Blood of Christ) Mountains, the other into Red Rock Country. We’ll visit more than twenty-five holy sites (illustrated by seventy-five photos), including historic El Santuario de Chimayo, known as the Lourdes of America, and the stunningly beautiful Monastery of Christ in the Desert.

May you sense the divine as you travel this hallowed land and follow the footsteps of many holy people–even a canonized saint. Who is it? Join the pilgrimage and find out!

Marion Amberg has provided to the American pilgrim a wonderful guide to the many sites in and around Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico — sites that have been revered for ages as places where God and the saints are especially close to us. The tradition of spiritual pilgrimage is one that thrived in Europe, but found a natural home among the people of the Southwest. This book lovingly shares with its readers the history and spirituality of many of the most important pilgrim shrines in Northern New Mexico and encourages us all to leave home and be pilgrims in our own homeland. — Fr. Kevin A. Codd, author To The Field of Stars: A Pilgrim’s Journey to Santiago de Compostela


Shrines and Wonders is not only a pilgrim’s guide, it’s a history lesson. It’s well written with magnificent photography throughout the book. This guide takes you to Santa Fe, on side trips in and around Santa Fe, along the High Road to Taos (which includes El Santuario de Chimayo), and then on to Red Rock Country. It also includes a section on Fiestas and Traditions. I highly recommend this book to anyone who cherishes day trips or those who like to delve into history. — Roberto Gonzales, Albuquerque, New Mexico; http://www.robertogonzales.info
