Cuaresma

Here are a few of my thoughts on the Fullfill blog this week on the meaning of cuaresma in rural Puebla:

When I first arrived in a rural region of Puebla, Mexico in December, it was the beginning of what people there called “la cuaresma.” The official translation for that word in Spanish is “Lent,” but for the people who I met in Puebla, cuaresma also meant the dry season. As I continue to journey through Lent, I remember this linguistic connection and wonder what it means to look at Lent like the dry season … For the rest of the content, see http://fullfillmagazine.blogspot.mx/2014/03/the-dry-season.html
