Excerpt from The Chimes of Freedom
The face of the glorified Madonna in its age old sweetness and devotion looked down upon her kneeling thus, seeming just to touch with the light of its maternal beauty the mist of bitterness and unanswered anguish that enshrouded the woman i... n her mad groping after truth and peace, and that hid the vision of the Father of love and of an infinite com passion.
Again the triple chimes began their music, ringing out from the temple silences through the city, and past the gates, and on through the narrow trail that leads toward the Chepe Vera Hills where some of the great con¿icts of old Mexico have been waged, and the grand old ruins of the Bishop Verger palace stand guardian over the spirit of freedom as it has struggled here, where the power of an old world civilization and despotism yet prevails.
