Icon14 California Jesuits - How did they do it?


I've already posted the first two parts of this saga which I hope you will all enjoy.

Part III of California Jesuits - How did they do it?

Father Mayorga is horrified when he first sees the savage Indians in their nudity - whipping himself for his venal weakness.

My latest post is Antigua California Raped to Support Nueva California


Portolá took almost everything to support his expedition north and found the mission at San Diego and the other at Monterey.


It's amazing that any of the converts in Old California survived.

Part IV of Jesuit California

Poor Father Mayorga gets his first real taste of the difficult terrain of California as he goes with a mule train taking supplies to Mission San Javier.

Such respectability. I like the coyote story.

We gain from the impossible desires to become.
Now we know.

I've just posted Part VII of The California Jesuits – How Did They Do It?


Father Mayorga finds himself in the midst of the rugged central Baja California mountains with only his soldier/companion and a bunch of naked savages. Read it at http://msgdaleday.blogspot.com. Ratings and comments encouraged.

Explained why I've left poor Father Baegert hanging at the ruins of what is left of Mision San Luis Gonzaga after unusually heavy rains.

Old computer gave up the ghost and trying very hard to become accustomed to the new Dell Inspiron with Windows 8.1 and the new keyboard.

Hope to get back to it this upcoming weekend.
