The lighthouse at Formentor, Mallorca

The background shows sidewalk tiles - "rajoles" - that pave the sidewalks throughout Barcelona. They were designed by architect Puig i Cadafalch for the entryway of a home. Since 1915, they have been used by the city to pave sidewalks, and have become emblematic of the city. One of the city's most famous chocolatiers, Enric Rovira, produces chocolate bars in the shape and design of these tiles.

Singing for the Angels

Tuesday night was the last night in Barcelona for five great missionaries: Hnas. Oliphant and Merrell, and Elders Chavez, Pando and Hardcastle. In a tradition that dates back many years, we gathered at Plaza Catalunya to sing hymns, contact, and say goodbye. It was a windy and rainy night, but spirits were not dampened!

All but four of our hermanas were in the city for the evening. These were some of the angels singing for the angels!


  1. Singing for the angels in rain or shine!

  2. It is not "singing for the dead" anymore? awww!
