In a specific sector of the city, the Santafesinos are quite traditionalist. In the south quarter, on Sundays, after spending the day of roasting with the family and having some mattes in the park, you have to go to mass. And note: it is not a heavy obligation. It is, in addition to a precept for the faithful, a social activity that is carried out with pleasure, a rooted tradition.
Nor are we talking about the fact that the Santaphesinos are all Catholics. Not even there. The city grew a lot in recent years, reached half a million inhabitants and greatly expanded its socio-cultural horizons. Religions have diversified and anti-religious militancy , linked to criticism of certain positions of the Church, is also very present in Santa Fe.
The truth is that there are many Catholic faithful in the city and the churches, of course, are distributed throughout the city. But in this note we tell you a very particular custom of the people of the South Quarter. Going to Mass on Sundays is in the DNA of the inhabitants of the founding zone of Santafesina.
Four are the traditional temples that are divided into parishioners. In the heart of the South Park, the Church of San Francisco, in charge of the order of the same saint. Of humble charisma and colonial architecture. Crossing the Plaza de Mayo, the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Miracles , where the Pope once lived and, they tell, the painting of Our Lady worked wonders. On the other corner, the Cathedral, seat of the curia. Impressive. Finally, two blocks west, the Church of the Dominicans, right in the heart of the neighborhood .
This healthy dispute is separated by
* closeness of the house to the church
* identification with the homilies of the priest
* affinity with the charism of the religious order
* the youth or traditional (according to taste) of the choir chants
* small groups of boys and girls who meet at the exit of each mass
* the nearby bars, where the cold smoothies are accompanied by minced milanese and carlitos .
Santafesino takes care of his traditions . Mass is the food of the Christian and the tradition of the Santafesino of the southern quarter.
