Easter Traditions in Texas [Podcast]

Easter Traditions in Texas [Podcast]

by Ricardo Patiño

I’m sharing my memories of Easter traditions in Texas today, more specifically, from my hometown of Laredo.  I’m remembering the places where I felt secure, safe and loved.

For me, that was the church.  As an alter boy, I felt that I was given wisdom, love, respect and security in a time when I did not have that in my home life.

Being an alter boy gave me a sense of pride and respect.  It replaced the void left by an absentee father with a sense of consistency and belonging.

The church still holds a special place in my life and for my own family as well.
